Tattoo- This episode didn't hold our attention the entire time. Also, the opening scene went on for too long.
It's common for a show to open right in the middle of action, but it's not as interesting as shows seem to think it is. The best opening has tension, but a dialogue-filled tension.
A perfect example would be the opening of Inglorious Basterds.
We're sad to see Jackson has left, because we liked his character and thought he was hot. We're also wondering where Peter is too.
We liked the new female character that the new alpha, Deucalion, might have killed. We hope he didn't.
Also, we're going to have so much fun spelling his name all season. (Sarcasm) Deucalion wants to get Derek to kill his whole pack.
The best thing about the episode was the animal suicides. Very creepy and creative. We loved the bird scene.
We also like the new teacher and the way she started class. We're glad that Scott is focusing on school more, but who studies for the PSATs? Those matter even less than the real SATs.
It looks like it's going to be a good season. Love Allison's new haircut; hate Scott's tattoo. We agree with Stiles. Get a tattoo that means something to you or is funny, not just a tattoo for the sake of getting a tattoo.
As long as we have interaction between Stiles and his cop father in every episode, we'll continue to be happy with this show.
That won't stop us from laughing at the super-buff, manly looking freshman this show is trying to pass off as being 14.
