Teen Wolf

My friend Glitter recommended this show a long while ago but I just never got around to watching it. I remember really liking the movie based on Michael J. Fox’s energy and the special effects. This show uses the movie as a loose format to inform the plot of the show. Basically, an unpopular and shy boy gets bitten by a werewolf and his life starts to change. They took the characters of Scott and Stiles but the show goes more in depth than the movie does and also focuses on the negatives of lycanthropy. Tyler Posey plays Scott, a bench-riding lacrosse player who has a run in with a werewolf. He is good at being adorkable and the special effects for his transformation are actually really fun. Dylan O’Brien plays Stiles, the goofy best friend who is even goofier than the movie. Crystal Reed plays a confident new girl who is figuring out how to fit in. Holland Roden actually plays who I think is the sleeper hit of the show, the slightly off-balance popular girl. The show is fun so far and I like where it is going. I recommend this show.

Lupin

I was a fan of Lupin the 3rd, a different show based on the tales of Arsene Lupin. This show is not about a descendant of Arsene but instead about a young boy who is inspired by the stories of Lupin. The story has a lot of the intrigue of fun heist movies with the playfulness present in most Lupin adaptations. The story is personal and that really helps drive the story and made me love the main character even more. Omar Sy is brilliant as a wronged man who grew up to be a gentleman thief in the modern age. He is so charismatic and fun to watch. His ex (played by Ludivine Sagnier) and his son (played by Etan Simon) are both so good at being these somewhat innocent characters who help humanize Lupin. Hervé Pierre is a perfect villain, a rich white man who is cruel and delights in it. The show is so well-written and I love how the cinematography adds to the craftiness of each con and flim flam. I recommend the show.

Cobra Kai

I remember the Karate Kid movies and I remember liking them. This show shunts the characters forward decades after high school and mostly follows the character Johnny Lawrence, the bully from the first movie. His life went to crap after his high school glory days were ended by Daniel LaRusso. William Zabka is really good at playing the loser with a chip on his shoulder. He decides to open up the old Cobra Kai dojo in order to regain his mojo and teach a new generation. Meanwhile, Ralph Macchio plays Daniel-san again who is the town big shot who now feels threatened by the return of his high school bully. The show is also about Daniel’s daughter and a boy that Johnny is training and them navigating high school. The show has a lot of offbeat comedy. It draws heavily on footage from the movies for flashbacks for both Daniel and Johnny. It is interesting to explore both character’s high school trauma from different angles. Both are equally damaged but entirely different. I recommend this show.
