Flying Sharks vs Werewolves

You know how that one time, I broke up with a TV show called Teen Wolf?

Yeah, well, a.w.k.w.a.r.d… I watched Episode 1 of Season 3 the other night.
Why would I do this to myself you may ask when I so clearly lost my shit with Teen Wolf in the first place and decided so Vehemently not to support it? The reasons are two fold, I shall admit.

Reason 1:
There really isn’t many interesting shows on TV at the moment.
There! I’ve said it! Go ahead, suggest TV shows I should be paying attention to and trying to figure out and getting sucked into the character storylines of. Do it! I dare you!

Yeah I’ve watched the fantasy, sci-fi, paranormal shows, falling skies, yeah I’ve watch revolution and am not a fan of J-J Abrahams’s so called genisus, Lost Girl – which just turns into hate watching EVERY SINGLE TIME past season 1. I may have to start a Hate Watching tv blog at this rate. For god sakes people, I sat through Sharknado!! Of course, I wasn’t sober for it, so that did help, a great deal, even as I yelled at Ian Zeiring for recklessly endangering his group of survivors by stopping to help and save a bus load of school kids.
And for having the name “Fin.” In a Shark movie.
Good one.
Not.
Ever.

I’m actually not big on watching a lot of TV, probably because there just lacks a great deal of quality, interesting stuff on it most of the time. But I like most fan girls and boys, want a TV show I can hook into and use like religion.

I’ve watched Alphas, and admit…this hasn’t lost me completely, yet, but I haven’t exactly been racing to keep up with it. The same goes for Once Upon a Time. I took to reading the graphic novel series Fables, and have to say, I think Once Upon a Time ripped it off massively and then took great liberty with it so as to avoid copyright infringement. But hey, that’s just my opinion, FABLES creator, Bill Willingham, doesn’t think so. So that’s what counts!

Reason 2:
And here is the main reason, really. A friend of mine challenged me to watch Teen Wolf again. She said I could literally forget Season 2 ever happened and pick up from Season 3 like it made complete sense to Season 1.

She knows how to bait a line my friends, I was intrigued by this. Could Teen Wolf be so bad in writing that it really was this simple to forget Season 2 ever happened? Did I want to go into Season 3 given I knew the hot dude who played Jackson wasn’t even going to be in the show?
The more I thought about it, the more I thought “Stiles” and well, we all know how in love with that dude I am, so really…CHALLENGE ACCEPTED!

I shall post my review of Episode 1 up here, later.

Till then peeps,
Embrace Bad TV cause it is everywhere like a god damn sharknado (although flying sharks are pretty frickn cool).
Maybe they could make a sequel – Flying Sharks vs Werewolves. Now I’d pay to watch that!

Breaking up with Teen Wolf

August 23, 2012

Dear Teen Wolf,
It was bound to happen sooner or later, the signs were there from the start of season 2. I ‘m just not that into you anymore.

So our relationship break up really if you think about it, was inevitable. Because truthfully there is only so much crap one werewolf can deal with in a one sided relationship, like ours had.

You just kept on ignoring pretty much everything I was trying to tell you to make you a better tv show. And worst of all Teen Wolf, you neglected my needs.You went dark side but it was off in the realms of weirdville. Quite frankly Teen Wolf, you got selfish. You indulged in this fantasy bullshit about the Kanima, and you forgot, almost entirely what you were about.  You weren’t true to yourself and in not doing that, you lost my interest too.

But you haven’t only affected /neglected me, it’s worse than that. You hurt others too. Other viewers and even characters on your show were put into emotional warfare.

You became obsessed with your nemesis Jackson. And for what? I still haven’t figured that out yet. You wasted your own potential and you expected your best friend Stiles to save the scene/day with his sharp wit and perfect timing. And more than that, Stiles came through, time and time again.

You kept ensuring you were still involved with Derek Hale, but honestly, how could you not see you’d surpassed his Alpha-ness? You neglected your studies to the point that your mother started paying more attention to you, when really, your all about being a secretive soul. Also a stupid one. You were smarter than this in Season one.  Or at least, you seemed so.

You let your school friends follow your lead and go down the wrong path with Derek. Dragging them into an under world they weren’t ready for or fully aware of. Nor we’re you, so it was a bit like the stupid leading the stupid. And your choice in girlfriend, where do I start on her? How about she over acts for one thing. When she’s not over acting, she’s turned into this big eyed watery, overly emotional clingy girl who like you isn’t too smart when it comes to dealing with and dodging parents.

Haven’t either of you figured it out yet? You live in an adult world. Your just teenagers, even though you don’t really act like teenagers a lot of the time.

But despite the tenuous hold you had on me for eight episodes, you finally did it. You gave me a reason to break ties with you completely in episode 9. And quite frankly, I think we both knew, it was about time.

Do you even now what you did to me?

You insulted me. You offended me. You turned me off you. You insulted females.  Do you know how you did it?  The opening scene of episode 9 with Lydia.

All of season two you’ve turned a vapid pretend airhead who’s actually a terribly smart girl, Lydia, into a complete fucking loon. But I dealt with that.  You’re efforts to make her unstable have been shitting me for a long time. Because despite all the other crap that was thrown into season two, and whilst I was in fact being turned off most of the main characters in this show (save Stiles) I was beginning to like Lydia. A lot. And beginning to feel that you weren’t giving her character a fair chance to prove how completely fucking misunderstood and over looked she is by all.

I could see the silent steely strength in her, so why couldn’t you?

You attract a certain type of crowd Teen Wolf and I think it’s fair to say that they’re probably teenagers and I’d take a guess and say a lot of them are female. given the amount of pretty and eye candy on your show.

So I doubt I’m the only female who tuned in to episode 9 and whose first reaction to the opening scene of Lydia in the shower, that then became Lydia in a dream at high school, where all her peers watched and cheered for Lydia, who was then attacked and by the alpha (Peter Hale), was internal horror.

I switched my TV off, that’s how I reacted to this scene.  I couldn’t make it through this scene and as a result I can’t watch you anymore.  There was never love there for you Teen Wolf, but now whatever small amount of like there was, that’s gone too.  The thing is it’s not that Lydia is a character on a TV show getting attacked and harassed by an alpha male.  You’re scene implied much more than that. It implied rape. It kind of  implied gang rape,  with the crowd just watching as only one woman in the otherwise mass, cheering crowd that where chanting Lydia’s name, sobbed  away in the crowd while Lydia was dragged literally through the mud screaming.

You’ve put me off you.  I thought maybe you could be better than this, but you’ve proven you’re not.  And quite frankly Teen Wolf, I’ve more than given you a chance to get your shit together and  I’m better than you and that means, I don’t need to watch you. I don’t need to know what’s going on in your world.  I don’t need to know these characters.  Or to watch you destroy them.

And if I’m being perfectly honest with you  Teen Wolf, I was only doing it for my blog posts. Yeah, that’s right, I was using you.

Please stop giving werewolves everywhere a bad name by making us as pathetic as anything that comes out of the world of Twilight. Just stop. You really need to.

So it’s over, you’ll go on apparently to what looks like season 3 and I’ll find something else to watch on TV, that’s likely to be better than you ever will be.


Teen Wolf should be called Dumb Ass

You know I’m so deep into bad TV viewing land of Teen Wolf now….I just can’t stop.  It’s become some what of an addiction.

So strap in and get ready for  whatever comes next.  Because I am prepared to ride this thing out. So strap yourselves in, cause here we go onto episode 8 of season 2.

Opening scene is with Jackson in class receiving a text message to his cell phone, his eyes widen, he looks at it a little strangely, but then appears to just get up and leave class, taking off in his car in daylight – but arriving at a warehouse at night time. Oh no, really?  Okay, whatever, he’s walking into the building rather robotically zombie like.  Very peculiar, no real reason given, but hey on Teen Wolf, you don’t actually need reasons for things. His whole opening scene appearances is done without Jackson actually speaking.

We cut to Stiles and his dad the sheriff.  It’s a cute little scene, where Stiles starts asking his dad about the Kanima murders. His dad goes on to say he can’t share confidential information with a teenager.  But then Stiles notices the noticeboard behind his dad with all the clues and information on it…well most of it.

And so we get given another bread crumb about this whole season’s weird kanima storyline.

All the murder victims are /were twenty four years of age.  All the murder victims are from surprise surprise, Beacon Hills – how insane is that? A show set in Beacon Hills where everything happens in Beacon Hills from a tonne of murders to werewolves and they were all in the same class at high school together at Beacon hills. I’m so surprised. Oh and Also, as well as being the same class, they all had the same teacher – Mr nasty teacher who gave all our teens detention.

But I suspect this is just a red hearing the writers want us to follow, so they can do a big reveal on who the Kanima controller is. But you know, could be an “either or thing”. Depending when the writers of this show will decide to make up their minds.

As Stiles and his dad go through the 2006 Beacon Hills year book to look for the Kanima’s next victim, they come across a pretty picture of a black woman.  Cut back to the warehouse and Jackson is silently purchasing a ticket from that same woman for an underground rave party.

Onto Allison next and she’s visiting the morgue with her dad.  Wow, real parent-child bonding moment.  Daddy is angry about the victims they are looking at and interrogates Allison about what she knows about the Kanima.

Dad Argent – “The price of greatness is responsibility.  Personally I think it’s more about knowledge.  What we know of the truth, we know the world….”Angry, dramatic.  “Are you starting to get it?”

Yep, you’re trying to link back to the  bumper sticker we saw in the last episode. Of course, dad thinks Allison actually knows who controls the Kanima.

Got news for you dad Argent.  We’re not likely till find that out until the end of season. I mean, that’s the storyline right? Derek, Issac and Scott are at the Vet’s who is enlisted in helping the werewolves.  He gives them  mountain ash, bad for werewolves and Kanima masters.

There’s a lot of theorizing and explaining shit to us the viewer about the Kanima master and trapping both the monster and the master.

High school – these kids actually attend it, there’s a little locker room thuggery for some underground rave tickets and then Allison and Scott making out in one of the classrooms when no one is around.

Scott tries to tell Allison that her mom knows about their sex life and stuffs it up by including “the pencils” speech.  He then turns into a stupid ass by suggesting to protect themselves, they should be seen dating other people.

Scott you are stupid beyond stupid belief.

Allison then explains to Scott that she’s kind of like, already, like, got a date planned with Matt – camera weird boy.  Scott is very enthusiastic about this happening.

Allison like any sane girl dating a boy she likes a lot, is confused by this.  Scott even encourages Allison to kiss Matt. Allison “Really kiss him?” Scott “What do you mean, really kiss him?”  Allison then demonstrates a “real kiss.” Scott.  “Don’t do that.” She leaves the classroom and Scott calls out to her “I love you.” To which Allison mutters “yeah.” Or something lame that is not “I love you” back.

Oh no. SCOTT. SCOTT. YOU ARE A SERIOUS DUMB ASS. Doesn’t help your cause that Mommy Dearest Argent witnessed you kissing her daughter either.
