Nocturnal tales

Full moons might become the most dreaded nights for one young high school student. In Teen Wolf on AXN on Fridays at 10 p.m. lead star Scott McCall, an average sportsman, when wandering around the neighbouring woods is suddenly attacked by a wolf-like creature. This single bite changes everything and turns him into a werewolf. He decides to keep it a secret and only confides in his best friend Stiles Stilinski, who helps him. The changes begin to manifest themselves — from newfound power on the sports field to super-strength and super-hearing. He grows more violent. He can see and smell things he couldn’t before. This is loose TV remake of the 1985 Michael J. Fox goofy movie by the same name. The TV version is a dark and brooding tale of what it means to grow up as a werewolf. — NF
