As I was perusing the offerings of the internet last night, I stumbled across this:
I personally blame the author of the twilight saga (you know the ones where the vampires sparkle and the female heroine is just a hollow character-less shell for girls to project themselves into in order to be in love with the exquisitely detailed male lead who happens to have perfect hair).
Watch it twice just to make sure you get the full effect.
I also blame her directly for this: “‘Teen Wolf’ gets an MTV reboot”
Young men who spontaneously transform into wolves are hot right now, especially in the age of “Twilight.” Now, MTV is getting into the shape-shifting business with a modern spin on the cult-classic ’80s hit “Teen Wolf.”
The series is said to be a departure from the film — a campy comedy that starred Michael J. Fox — and is described in a press release as a “sexy thriller set against the drama of high school life with a forbidden, romantic love story at its core.”
The series centers on Scott McCall as the quintessential outsider, struggling to be recognized in a way that takes him out of high school anonymity. One night, his best friend, Stiles, convinces him to go into the woods to join a police search for a dead body. Scott ends up being attacked by a creature in the darkness, narrowly surviving with a vicious bite in his side. When he wakes up the next morning, he is greeted with strange surprises and a life that will never be the same.
Excuse me, I think I’m going to be ill.
