Storyline

After a year in Toronto, Elena Michaels (Laura Vandervoort) has carved out a dream gig as a freelance photographer and is in a fiery romance with sexy, smart ad exec Philip McAdams (Paul Greene). There's just one problem: Elena is the only female werewolf in known existence, and has managed to keep that secret from the man she loves. But Elena's year of self-imposed exile in Toronto is shattered after the body of a young woman is found, killed by a "wolf" on the outskirts of Bear Valley in Upstate New York...close to the ancestral home of her Pack -- Stonehaven. Alpha Jeremy Danvers (Greg Bryk) recognizes the kill as that of a non-Pack werewolf and wants to shut this Mutt down fast -- he calls the Pack home for a meet and members Clay Danvers (Greyston Holt), Nick Sorrentino (Steve Lund) and Antonio Sorrentino (Paulino Nunes) soon arrive, with Logan Jonsen (Michael Xavier) and Pete Myers (Joel Keller) to follow as soon as they can.

Goofs

When the taxi drops Elena off at the end of the episode, the taxi's phone number on the side has an area code of 607. 607 is the area code for south-east of Syracuse, whereas according to Elena, Stonehaven is "100 miles west of Syracuse," putting into the 585 area code, which is for the Rochester, NY area. Also: Rochester, NY is 88 miles due west of Syracuse and a larger city than Syracuse, which would make Stonehaven 12 miles west of Rochester -- so why not simply say "12 miles west of Rcochester" instead? Why mention Syracuse at all? It means that whoever wrote that line never looked at a map, and anyone who had looked at a map or lives in the area would immediately spot the error. See more »

gorgeous leading lady

Kicks off with a sex scene. And I'm complaining? No, but scriptwriters should know better. When introducing the main character, she should win over the audience immediately. We should immediately bond with her, like her, because she should be shown to care about something. Could have been as little as a pet. Or maybe, as Elena the Wolf, refraining from blood sport murdering another poor innocent bunny. You get my general drift. This is a fantastically beautiful cool Nordic blonde, wow, let me not get into all of that too much, suffice to say she is The Dream, okay? But I found myself (just like I do with many movies but not so much with TV series) thinking that I am just not involved with her yet... she's so beautiful, so why do I not care yet?

Brings to mind BUFFY THE VAMPIRE SLAYER. Sarah Michelle Gellar is hardly on the screen, you care about Buffy Summers! You now understand what I mean?

So I'm not going to say "empty vacuous character" because that is standard Hater response. I'm simply giving (sadly belated) positive criticism.

What we have here, is a girl who can overshadow the memory of Pamela Anderson, in a script with way more revealing scenes than a red leotard. Yet BITTEN and Laura Vandervoort aren't exactly household names.

Which brings me back to my argument. This pilot episode shows something lacking. I'm not really involved with the character. That says it all. The creepy dead-looking wolves aren't that great either, obviously a lot of work, but they are just creepy. Not scary creepy, just dumb creepy.

But I'm not gonna bicker about fake wolves. Not with all that blond beauty running around in the altogether in the woods. (hey, in real life, girl leaves her outfit, designer high heels and all, stashed in a back alley, and when she comes back, it is still there?)

Anyway, with a beautiful leading lady like this, and bare-butt to boot, I'll be damned if I flunk it. Beauty-wise, Laura is a 10, the basic premise is an 8, the delivery is a 7, with minus points for shortcomings. Hence my average of 7. Count me in for all three seasons. Expect loads of disparaging future comments though, cause when I like something, I'm all too aware of its shortcomings.
