    Great premiere. My wife and I loved it and we’re in our 50s. Better than True Blood and Vampire Diaries ( which I gave up on) put together. Twins were a little silly but looking forward to the season.

  • joy

    teen wolf is definitely good,there’s no doubt regarding that,but saying it is better than both TB and TVD is sounding a little bit silly!!

  • Wright

    What a great episode. This looks to be the best season yet.

  • Derrick

    Great show!

  • SLS

    Love the show and I’m hardly a teenager anymore. Well written shows don’t need to be meant just for one target audience.

  • david

    Great start to season 3 for the show.
