MTV To Add Valuable Lyncanthropic Perspective To "Teen Wolf" Franchise

A good film marred by a lack of detailMTV is "pondering a reinvention of '80s film 'Teen Wolf' in series format, with a greater emphasis on romance, horror and werewolf mythology." Good for MTV! My major problem with the 1985 Michael J. Fox film-and, to a lesser extent, 1987's Jason Bateman-starring Teen Wolf Too-was its lack of historical perspective regarding lupine therianthropy; I'm excited to see that this will be addressed in greater detail.

UGH – someone please send a silver bullet love letter to that producer's heart.

It's "lupine," Balk; "vulpine" means "fox-like." Get your animal-related adjectives straight, man!

Grrr. Stupid brain. Thanks, fixed.

You idiot.

Just glad to be of service.

He can't help it – he's got Megan Fox on the brain.

And Michael J. Fox. And Fox News.

Furries everywhere clench their little paws in anticipation.

Also, how many freaking points did he score in the basketball game???

And can we hook him up with Ilsa?

I will watch this only if Jason Bateman is still the wolf. Actually, I'd take Michael J. Fox, too.

You two could write a whole site, like The Onion, that makes fun of earnest but crappily written posts on Gawker media sites like io9.

And, I'm glad you don't. The occasional reminder that you could, however, is very welcome.

I can think of no better way to kick sand in the eyes of the 75 people who were laid off yesterday than for MTV to put their salaries towards a remake of "Teen Wolf."

I don't understand… It already WAS a failed TV Series:

"With a greater emphasis on romance, horror and werewolf mythology" = more like Twilight.

I'm glad Sergie Pankeev is old enough now that he only watches VH1.
