Wolf is an American television series developed by Jeff Davis for MTV. It is based on the 1985 film of the same name. The show's central character is Scott McCall (Tyler Posey), a high school student and social outcast who is bitten by a werewolf while looking for a dead girl in the woods. Scott attempts to maintain a normal life, keeping the fact of his being a werewolf secret from everyone, with the exception of his best friend "Stiles" Stilinski (Dylan O'Brien), who helps him through the changes in his life and body, and another mysterious werewolf, Derek Hale (Tyler Hoechlin).

So I totally didn't know anything about this show at first. I believe one of my sisters may have mentioned it, but I figured it's MTV what the heck would they know right???!?! Somebody back me up on this right?? No no..ok then, I was bored last week and turned on Netflix and saw this so I decided to try it out. I was hooked, from the first; especially because the first few episodes the wolves actually looked like wolves especially the Alpha (who was female, how kick ass was that??).

The comedic timing in this show is awesome, the love story along with the need to protect the towns people, the mystery of who some of these people are, why they don't change, who is the Vet. I mean really who is he. & I totally got a kick out of seeing a Pretty Little Liars star on the show & I can't wait to see more from her character.  The story lines keep you guessing on some of the issues and others are obvious, but I truly love when the story all comes together and little secrets get let out of the bag.

It's a pretty decent take on the movie, allowing us to see how the modern version of this would be, especially in a world with cameras on every cellphone and everywhere has them.  I was totally intrigued by Derek, and loved Stiles from the get go, I knew why Scott McCall was such a pain in the ass long before Derek figured it out.  I love the hunter family and their issues and the what ifs of it all. I was really into the fact that the women were the leaders of the group and the men the soldiers 

Although I love the story lines and the relationship between Scott & Alison is intriguing. I do have a few problems with the story.
  • One of them being ermm don't wolves have tails. Yeah why don't they have any, even in the 1980s movie they gave him a tail.
  • also in the beginning the Alpha and those who were born wolves actually changed into wolves, now the Alpha looks like Scott when he changes,
  • And this running on their hands shyt how about you just CGI the heck out of that and make them actual wolves???
There are also a few continuity issues that I noticed, but then I'm a bored former film student, those who can't will criticize brutally. I do love the show though and can't wait to see what is in store for the new pack and the battle between the alphas.

Here's a quick sneak peak of all the awesomeness that is there:

Have fun my loves & make sure to check out the season three premiere on June 3rd.
See you then
