    • Me too! I have it on DVD and re-watch it when new shows are on hiatus. It was such a sweet, happy little show.

  • Wow, Teen Wolf did better than most CW shows. I watched the premiere of Season 3B myself and it’s fast becoming one of my favourite shows. Though the writing at times is overthought and too jumbled, the excellent cast, cinematography and storyline pace more than makes up for it.

  • Teen Wolf had an amazing Season 2, but Season 3a was super-convoluted. I’m glad it’s managed to build on its audience despite that. Here’s hoping Season 3b focuses the narrative again. And more Stiles, please!

  • I agree with DL, the mythology really started taking over the show in 3A. I hope 3B is more focused. The premiere was great so I’m happy about these ratings.

  • I thought they tried to fit way too much into 3A and they never explained things enough. They just jumped around too much without delving too deeply into characters’ thinking. They introduced a big bad villain only to defeat him too quickly. Despite all this I am still watching the show. Much less whoa is me moody blues than Vampire Diaries which I still watch as well. The show as a Buffy feel to it.
