MTV continues to solidify itself as no longer a network of ‘music television’ by renewing it’s new hit series Teen Wolf. Who would’ve thought that another teen ‘angsty’ filled show with supernatural transformations being an allegory for ‘the change’ we all go through during our adolescents would make it?! Leave it to MTV to be able to pull this shit off. Or maybe they have creator Jeff Davis (Criminal Minds) to thank! How are you guys feeling about another season of moody teen drama?? Here’s what the network had to say about the show.
“We’re incredibly proud of this show. Executive producer Jeff Davis has brought an exciting, cinematic story to life with a breakout young cast who our audience has wildly embraced,” said David Janollari, Head of MTV Programming. “Picking up ‘Teen Wolf’ for a second season marks another step towards the further diversification of our schedule, with this big, bold, entertaining scripted series.”
Sidenote: Every time I see ‘Teen Wolf’ in my cable guide, I think it’s the original Michael J. Fox cult classic. Disappointed am I when I realize it’s this douche of a remake.
Squee! San Diego Comic Con, the media mecca for comics, movies, television, video games, toys and more, is a little over 4 weeks a way (July 21-24) . Good lord we can’t wait! Oh, FYI NerdBastards will be in attendance. Luke Gallagher and Mrs. NerdBastards (aka Luke’s mistress, life coach and supplier of NOMs) Crystal H. will be doing some field reporting, schmoozing with celebs, and procuring as much swag as we can. We’ll also be on hand to meet with any NB fans in attendance. Come say hi (Will be wearing NB t-shirts, as scene on splitreason.com). Tell us how much you love us, or how much you hate us. Either way, we’re happy to meet you. Though, if you say some shit, that nullifies your chances of getting any free fan appreciation swag from us. Also, warning to the busty nerdy girlies out there, Luke is a weak and very perverted man. Stay at-least 5 feet away.
Anyway, as the dates come closer and closer, news on guest appearances, panels and other festivities will be rolling out. At the moment, thanks to TV Line, we have a list of what TV shows and stars will be in attendance.
So MTV is adding a new show to their lineup premiering this Sunday after the 2011 MTV Movie Awards. The network is attempting to revive and breath some life into the 80’s classic Teen Wolf made famous by the one and only Michael J. Fox. And while this may look cheesy…and it is; However, this is certainly leaps and bounds above reality TV which has been the networks cash cow for so long now. While Guido’s and teenage whores are a wonderful guilty pleasure, it’s nice to see another actual television series added to MTV’s lineup. Teen Wolf along with MTV’s other hit show The Hard Times of RJ Berger are most definitely a step in the right direction for the network no longer known as music television (DO they even play music videos in the early morning anymore??). Check out the first 8 minutes of the show here and let us know what you think!
“Scott (Tyler Posey) was just a regular guy until one bite changed his life forever.
Now he struggles to understand who he is and what he might become. Is he more wolf than human – or is it the other way around? Whichever it is, it’s not going to be easy. Scott will try to control his urges, but mostly he’s scared that it’s his urges that could end up controlling him.
“Teen Wolf” is the story of Scott as he tries to walk the line between what he wants and what he can’t help from wanting. Will the bite end up being a gift? Or will it be a curse? And what will it all mean for his relationship with Allison (Crystal Reed) – the girl he can’t get enough of? Only time will tell if he should embrace his newfound powers or if he should fear them.”
I swear, teen angst will no go out of style. Thank you Twilight!
I say we all march over to the offices of MTV and take turns takin’ a shit in their lobby, if not solely for birthing the proverbial red headed step children that are ‘The Jersey Shore’ and ‘Teen Mom’. A piss in the face to cultural class, those are. Ya, lets show what a reward it is to be bronzed debaucherous douchebags, or how if you open your legs at 16 (without protection anyway) you can become a reality star. Abhorrent behavior being idolized. Disgusting, if you ask me.
Further tickling my taint the wrong way is MTV’s upcoming series Teen Wolf, a supposed remake of the 1980s comedy starring Michael J. Fox. Because gross guidos and pregnant teenage whores just isn’t enough. They have to fuck with classic 80’s nostalgia. Assholes! And, in this latest trailer for the series, I’m not sure what makes this a remake. It appears to have nothing to do with the original source material other than the title. Seriously, where’s the basketball? All we have is another regurgitated series of attractive young people struggling to deal with scary/sexy monsters while dealing with teen angst. Oh how original!
Entertainment Weekly quotes executive producer Jeff Davis describing the new series as “kind of like The Lost Boys with kind of the pace and fun of Buffy.” I, for one, am getting more of a “Twilight for boys” vibe. Less angst, yes, but the same blue-gray tones, same shots of half-naked teenage boys running around the woods — star Tyler Posey even looks like he could be part of Jacob Black’s wolf pack. Instead of a stereotypical teen girl fantasy (i.e., pretty boys fighting to save you), we’ve got a stereotypical adolescent boy fantasy (i.e., pretty girls throwing themselves at you).
Christ! Hit all the pop culture keywords why don’t ya (Buffy, Lost Boys, Twilight)! I’m sorry chief but making superficial comparisons like that ain’t gonna save your shit show. Judgmental am I? Perhaps, but I hate MTV and I hate remakes. The two together just make a pop pill I don’t want to swallow.

Dear people in charge of television/movies STOP FUCKING WITH MY CHILDHOOD MEMORIES!
MTV has decided to torture us further because gross guidos and pregnant teenage whores just isn’t enough. They have just released a trailer for their summer series Teen Wolf . It’s inspired from the 1985 classic Teen Wolf starring the not yet shaky, Micheal J. Fox (what part of bastards did you not understand?) Fox plays a teenager who finds his groove when he learns he’s a werewolf (you thought puberty was tough for you, pussy.) Also that being a werewolf allows him to dunk on a mother fucker like he’s Jordan.
MTVs Teen Wolf has been described as a “sexy thriller set against the drama of high school life with a forbidden, romantic love story at its core,”. It is obvious that the show will go in a different direction than the films, but It will surely lack the awesomeness of the 1985 Teen Wolf.
Check out the trailer below and judge for yourself. Personally it just reiterates that since the early 90’s everything MTV touches is basically a visual abortion.
Teen Wolf will be coming to MTV next summer and stars Tyler Posey (Maid in Manhattan, Brothers and Sisters), Dylan O’Brien, Crystal Reed (Skyline) and Tyler Hoechlin (Road to Perdition, 7th Heaven).
Dear people in charge of television/movies STOP FUCKING WITH MY CHILDHOOD MEMORIES! MTV has decided to torture us further because gross guidos and pregnant teenage whores just isn’t enough. They are now going start a series based on the 1985 classic Teen Wolf starring the not yet shaky, Micheal J. Fox (what part of bastards did you not understand?) Fox plays a teenager who finds his groove when he learns he’s a werewolf (you thought puberty was tough for you, pussy.) Also that being a werewolf allows him to dunk on a mother fucker like he’s Jordan. Find out all the details and catch a fun video after the jump.. (more…)
What’s the only way to make Rocky Horror Picture Show even gayer? Let MTV get their grubby hands on it. That’s right folks, io9 says the dreaded MTV remake of the cult classic is officially ON HOLD! Before I can even finish doing the Time Warp in celebration, I learned that the bastards are remaking Teen Wolf… as a television series.
ARE YOU FUCKING KIDDING ME?!!
When are you assholes going to learn to leave well enough alone? Nobody WANTS a Teen Wolf series. Nobody WANTED a RH remake, not even Richard Fuckin O’Brien. That’s right, they were going to throw new songs into Rocky without even mentioning it to the film’s original writer and composer.
Remember last year when NBC decided to remake Knight Rider? That’s right, you don’t, because NOBODY GAVE A SHIT!!!
The classics are classic BECAUSE they’re old and cheesy and weird. Nobody would give your crazy Aunt Sue a second glance if she was young and fresh and good looking. She’s interesting BECAUSE she’s old and cheesy and weird. FUCK!!
