Teen Wolf: Season Two

 Review by Suzanne Lanoue 5/30/13

I hadn't watched this show at all, although many people had told me how great it was. I binge-watched the first season on Hulu before watching the DVD. The whole thing took me 3-4 days. Fortunately, I didn't have nightmares about werewolves! They were right. It's a very fun show.

I have to admit I liked the first season better than the second, but the second is only slightly flawed. It was still very entertaining. I just think the writing is not quite as tight, and I was confused sometimes while watching. I think they tried to fit too many different story threads into the second season. This often happens, especially in scifi and fantasy shows. They keep trying to shock us and top what they did before, rather than just write a good story. "The Vampire Diaries" suffers from this flaw much more than Teen Wolf does.

It's fine to be surprised or shocked, but not at the expense of the story.  I enjoyed seeing Jackson turn into a giant lizard (and this is kind of a wink to fans who knows that the people in charge of Teen Wolf sort of treat the show like "Spider-man" - whose nemesis was The Lizard). However, I didn't think their explanation about why he turned into a lizard or why someone else was controlling him made a whole lot of sense.

I also really enjoyed seeing Michael Hogan (Battlestar Galactica's Saul) join the show this season as Allison's grandfather. He was awesome, as always. However, it seemed a letdown when we learned why he came there. He certainly didn't seem very sick. Also, Allison's mother was kind of a bland character, so when they killed her off, it was not nearly as of emotional as it should have been.

Other than these few points, I enjoyed second season DVD as much as I enjoyed the first season. It is great to see the actors and characters develop.  It reminds me a lot of Smallville. It reminds me sometimes of the teen soap "Hollywood Heights", which was not nearly as good. I love all of the characters, but especially Stiles and Derek.

The DVD has a lot of great extras, too. The actors and show's creator are shown answering questions at Paleyfest 2012. Of course, they don't give too many plot details away, but it was fun to see them as their real selves. I would like to see more of that. They have audio commentary on three of the episodes. There is a CGI reel where it shows some of the CGI work on the shows, and also a fight choreography reel. They have some deleted scenes, some alternate Stiles takes, and a gag reel, as well as a faun shirtless montage. And lastly, there is a feature "Teen Wolves: Meet the New Pack" about the new werewolves.

Make sure you get this DVD and the season 1 DVD as well! And don't forget, season 3 starts June 3 on MTV!
