If there is one thing I know how to do, it’s how to pay the minimal amount of attention in class. To that end, Dylan O’Brien (Teen Wolf, The Maze Runner) and his super-fresh moves have really helped me step up my game. In fact, I haven’t paid attention in statistics for weeks now. And don’t worry mom. The odds of my failing are pretty slim. (I think. Like I said, I haven’t really paid attention in stats).
In preparation for the forthcoming Arrested Development season (!!), I set the necessary goal of re-watching the first three seasons. Upon finishing all of the episodes in an embarrassingly short span of time, I browsed Netflix looking for something else to put on. I am going to blame boredom for making me start watching Teen Wolf, but I have only myself to blame for watching the first two seasons in the span of two days. Yep, that happened. Not that me watching a lot of TV should come as shock anymore.
The “embarrassing” factor comes into play when I tell you that Teen Wolf isn’t that good. But like most entertainment that isn’t very good, it’s a pretty fun ride and it isn’t all bad. I would find myself guffawing at a poorly delivered line and then a second later I would get wrapped up in a genuinely sweet moment or hit play on the next episode because I had to know what happened next.
Also, let’s not beat around the bush, the boys on this show are adorable. I use the words “boys” and “adorable” because they are all younger than me and I feel the need to tread lightly. WHEN DID THIS HAPPEN?! I suppose when I left that key 18-24 demographic. But really, Stiles (played ever so endearingly by Dylan O’Brien) is the best part of the show and “awwed” every time he and his little puppy face came on screen.
If teen supernatural shows are in your wheelhouse (I’m looking at you, TVD fans), then I think that you would get hooked, too. Check it out! Seriously. It’s a good time.
