teenwolfShow: Teen Wolf

Network: MTV

# of Seasons Aired: S4 will premiere shortly

Currently Watching: Season 1

Premise: “MTV’s reboot of the classic 1980s cult movie Teen Wolf. Scott is a typical high school student until one night he is bitten by a strange animal while walking in the woods. His best friend tries to help him understand the changes he’s going through as he becomes a werewolf.” -TV.com

Thoughts: I originally watched the first 2-3 episodes of Teen Wolf when the show first premiered, but I gave up on it. However, the dedicated fandom and my best friend finally convinced me to give it another shot. Once again it was a bit of a slow start, but now I’m hooked and I can’t wait for the next season to arrive at the library! I still don’t completely love Scott or Jackson, but I adore Stiles, Lydia, Allison, and even most of the adults! Sometimes the effects can be a bit cheesy, but overall this is a fun, thrilling show.

Favorite Episodes: Night School, Code Breaker

 

Show: Firefly

Network: FOX firefly

# of Seasons Aired: 1 + movie

Currently watching: Season 1

Premise: “”Take my love, take my land, take me where I cannot stand. I don’t care I’m still free, you can’t take the sky from me. Take me out to the black, tell them I ain’t coming back. Burn the land and boil the sea, you can’t take the sky from me……There’s no place I can be since I found Serenity, you can’t take the sky from me.” Firefly is set five hundred years from today in a new planetary system after humanity abandons “Earth That Was”. Under the leadership of Malcolm Reynolds, a renegade who fought against the new unified central government (the “Alliance”), the crew of the Firefly-class vessel Serenity struggles to survive any way they can.” -TV.com

Thoughts: I’ve watched Firefly multiple times, and each time I fall in love again. This rewatch is even more fun as I’m watching with my sister who hasn’t seen it before (jealous!). If you haven’t seen Firefly before, it is brilliant and you should be watching right now (it’s available on Netflix). The premise may seem rather strange, but it works especially when paired with the fantastic, hugely talented cast and marvelous writing.

Favorite Episodes: Safe, Out of Gas, Objects in Space, Bushwhacked
