'Nine Lives of Chloe King' and 'Teen Wolf' finale thoughts

Tis the week to say farewell to both of the summer's high profile teen-becomes-an-animal-and-falls-in-love-with-the-child-of-their-nemesis cable dramas.   MTV's "Teen Wolf" wrapped up its first season on Monday (August 15) night with a finale that included a few lingering questions, but no pressing cliffhangers. If you're a writer-producer, it's the sort of finale you can turn in if you're confident that you'll be continuing the story a few months down the road. Indeed, MTV renewed "Teen Wolf" weeks ago and new episodes will premiere in 2012 and if the network holds off till the summer again, I'll probably even keep watching, despite the galling awareness that Australian doctorologists say that  TV is killing me  at a rate of 22 minutes per small screen hour. Since reading the results of that scientifically questionable study, I've been evaluating what percentage of my TV viewing is worth dying for. With "Teen Wolf," I'm certain it's a loss.    While I haven't loved "The Nine Lives of Chloe King," I've found it to be a pleasantly entertaining summertime diversion, low impact but likable. When musing on the TV that's killing me, "The Nine Lives of Chloe King" doesn't go under the heading of TV Worth Dying Slowly For, but unlike "Teen Wolf," it also can't be filed under Oh God, I'm Squandering My Life. It's better suited for the I Probably Wasn't Gonna Do Anything Better With That Time pile, which isn't too shabby.

Teen Wolf: Who Survived? And What Was Left Of Them?

Okay! So now that I have rinsed the blood from my nails after gripping the edge of my seat during the Teen Wolf season finale, I think I have enough strength to muster through this review of what was a pretty damn good episode of Teen Wolf . The suspense was had its claws so deep in my throat that I was scared to move out of fear having it ripped out like one unfortunate character did tonight. The reveals were pretty interesting and made complete sense in their respective areas. Finally, the epic showdown between Scott, Derek, Peter, and the Argents was simply Grade-A Awesomeness and almost rivaled the initial Derek vs. Scott fight from the beginning of the season. And let's not forget about the aptly placed jokes that were slung throughout the night. With all that said, there were some areas of the night that left me a little "blah" and I hate feeling "blah" when it comes to Teen Wolf . I will get to those moments later on, but now let's discuss the top moments of the night which will have us sulking worse than Bella Swan until last summer.

TEEN WOLF “Code Breaker” Review

TEEN WOLF  "Code Breaker" Season 1 Episode 12 (Season Finale) -  The season 1 finale of  TEEN WOLF  has a Scooby Doo vibe about it. Formerly in their individual corners protecting their own interests, Derek, Scott, Stiles, Allison and Jackson team up against the Alpha. There is a lot of scrambling about, random deductions and precarious situations to get out of just in the nick of time. For the most part, the tension and action that were prevalent in the last few episodes are also present in "Code Breaker." However, mishap after mishap makes the episode choppy, which fortunately is conducive to the tone and atmosphere of this final chapter. Peter killed Laura so that he could become the Alpha. He is clearly delusional with power when he says that he only kills the responsible ones. Do red eyes and fangs equal bad guy? What will that make Derek – good or bad? The Hales might be a family of werewolves, but the Argents are equally scary and unpredictable. Mother Argent (is her name Helena?) is so severe. You get the sense that she has never ever said a nice word to Allison. What are they hiding?

Teen Wolf Review: Do You Want The Bite?

The strange and exciting first season of Teen Wolf ended with a finale equally as strange and even more exciting.  "Code Breaker" was filled with suspense, action, some romance, and a few unlikely heroes.  It answered a bunch of questions, but left us asking twice as many by the time everything was said and done. Here are a few of my burning questions as we wait out the break until season two. Read More... //www.tvfanatic.com/2011/08/teen-wolf-review-code-breaker/

Teen Wolf: Dead Man's Party

Sweet Mother of  GOD !!! Last night's  Teen Wolf  still has my mouth on the floor. I'm having a hard time trying to type and keep my jaw in place, but I will manage both tasks to discuss this epic episode with you guys. There is so much to discuss that I don't even know where to begin, so I'm just going to jump right into the thick of things. Allison  KNOWS Everything ! Not only did Allison find out about her heritage and birthright, she also accidentally found out about Scott's own secret as well. To make matters worse, Allison found this out right after she and Scott finally reconciled after Scott told her how much he loved her. Talk about heart-ripping stuff! The opening scene with Allison driving and replaying her conversation with Kate was a brilliant blend of writing, acting, and direction and Crystal Reed simply  owned  tonight. Allison's earth-shattering revelation that Scott is the beast in her weird fairy tale had me seriously wanting to take the girl home and console her, because she's on the verge of snapping into a split image of her aunt Kate... which leads me into the next shocker of the night.

TEEN WOLF “Formality” Season 1 Episode 11 - Review

TEEN WOLF  "Formality" Season 1  Episode  11 -  Tonight’s  TEEN WOLF  is a good build up to next week’s season finale. "Formality" presents an odd mix of juvenile humor, sexual tension and horror, but it works. It basically sets up a series of events that is gearing toward a big showdown. Who will be on which side? Who will even survive the melee? Which is the real Allison – frightened or kick-ass? Allison is teetering between being scared out of her mind and putting on a happy face. It seems she has completely changed her opinion and is open todating Scott again. Just a distraction or more? But now she knows about Scott the werewolf. Is the relationship off? Who is the vet really? What is the vet? A werewolf, another pack? He’s obviously more dominant than Peter. Kate accused Derek of not telling her what she wants to know and protecting the guy who killed his sister. But she was after the Beta (aka Jackson and Scott), and Peter was the one responsible for killing Laura. Am I missing something? Or does Kate not know about it, or maybe she knows something that Derek doesn’t?

Teen Wolf Review: Dancing With Wolves

Teen Wolf dances are always epic!  While "Formality" did not showcase Scott in a white suit going full wolf, like in the original movie, it certainly had enough excitement to keep the audience wanting more from the MTV series. But seriously, there was not a single person doing the patented Teen Wolf dance move?  What a waste! Read More... //www.tvfanatic.com/2011/08/teen-wolf-review-formality/

TEEN WOLF “Co-Captain” Review

TEEN WOLF  "Co-Captain" Season 1 Episode 10 -  Scott  is pulled in all directions, trying to protect his acquaintances from being turned into wolf food or into wolf. For the most part, he is  completely on top of his game in tonight’s  TEEN WOLF , until he fails to move out of the way of the "Hale of bullets." Peter is deliciously sinister as he tries to convince Scott to join his pack. On the opposite end of the spectrum, Jackson  is also trying to convince Scott to fully transform him into wolf. But by the end of "Co-Captain" he is only revealed as a scaredy-cat. Jackson and Scott : "You have all this power and don’t know what to do with it." And Jackson does? I can only imagine  what Jackson would do with his wolf powers, if he ever gets them. I tend to find him irritating, but I am starting to warm to the character of Jackson. I want to find out more about his story, his past and how it relates to the Hales’ house  and the fire. Above all, why did he dream about the house?

Teen Wolf: Revenge is A Dish Best Served Raw...

Speechless. Last night's Teen Wolf , as well as this entire season, has been comparable to a rollercoaster. The first half of the season started planting questions in a fashion similar to the slow, yet energy charged pace of going up a rollercoaster before the ride begins. Now, the second half of the season is the equivalent of the coaster taking the dip, answering all the questions laid out in the beginning at break neck speed. Everything is coming into focus clearly now and there are still two episodes left. In other words, be prepared to be on the edge of your seat for the next two weeks. While I constantly had to force my mouth shut during the entire hour, Teen Wolf exhibited what I have come to call The Three R's, which consist of Revenge, Romance, and Reveals. It also tackled the concept of power and whether or not if it's all that it is cracked up to be, and just what can happen when someone challenges said power. All in all, the episode was phenomenal and ranks as second to the "Night School" episode as one of the best of the series. Now, let's take a look at the three R's of last night.

Teen Wolf Review: Bite On The First Date?

Even though scripted television is planned out far in advance, they seemingly can still get complacent a la a professional basketball team in first place in the standings. After a couple of great episodes in a row ("Lunatic" and "Wolf's Bane"), Teen Wolf turned in a bit of a dud with "Co-Captain."  Filled with plenty of exposition early, the chapter's main purpose seemed to be setting up what should be a fantastic final two episodes of the season.
