10 Reasons You Should Be Watching MTV's Teen WolfTuesday, August 20, 2013Aaron Reese
I was one of the many who'd guessed that MTV's Teen Wolf would be nothing more than a corny rip off of the 1985 film by the same name, but honestly I couldn't have been further from the truth. The show has an increasingly large cult following, and yours truly has found himself apart of that cult. The mid season finale aired yesterday, and true to form it left us wanting for more. If you're not a Teen Wolf fan already, now's the time to jump in!
1. Lycan Mythos
I find myself emotionally invested with every character in the series, even the villains (especially the villains). Each character wolf or not, has a unique and interesting story to tell. No one likes a waste of space, isn't that right Bella Swan?
The bond between a wolf and his pack is inseparable and such is the case with the boys of Teen Wolf. Of course there's a little homoeroticism here (heck there's even a gay couple this season), but it's endearing (eff endearing, it's really friggin cute) to watch these "brothers" care so much for each other. Well, they occasionally rip each other apart too. Which means clothes come off. Yup.
7. She Wolves
Every woman on this show is powerful, and at times more so than her male counter parts. Out of the two main gals, one wields a bow and arrow (the hottest weapon of the year if you haven't heard), and the other is essentially the harbinger of death. Not to mention some of the strongest villains in this show have been femme fatales. Watch your back boys.
8. Dog Fight
9. Date Night
Since TW is still a high school drama, the love department is a chaotic mess. The first season brings back those nauseating but nostalgic feelings (you know, puppy love. See what I did there?) of high school star crossed lovers. But in seasons 2 and 3 we see the relationships and inevitably the characters evolve, and it's not always for the best, but definitely interesting to watch.
These moments happen all the time on the show. All the time. I don't think there's an episode that someone hasn't ripped their shirt off. And I am not complaining. At. All.
