Not only is it really well thought out, but the good-looking kids in the show can actually act.
A winner and best of all, fun.
It may also turn out that "Twilight" and "The Vampire Diaries" and their kin have satisfied the target audiences for these wistfully romantic bedtime fantasies. But if there's room for one more, Teen Wolf could be it.
Yes, boys and girls, Teen Wolf has more to say than "Jersey Shore."
The very special scheduling is one of several ways the network has been signaling that it means serious business with this light and passably witty supernatural drama.
As with any pilot, there are questions about whether the show's initially strong production values and special effects will remain high quality in subsequent episodes. And it remains to be seen how the characters and their relationships will develop. But at least Teen Wolf puts its best foot, er, paw forward.
The series generally gets the mood right but proves miserly in the details, from fleeting glimpses of the werewolf to Scott's eventual moon dance, which leaves him looking too much like Eddie Munster.
This is a pretty by-the-numbers blend of teen angst and horror.
It is billed as scarier and sexier than the lighthearted film series. It is that, but still plays it safer than, say, "Vampire Diaries" or the "Twilight" films.
MTV's scripted choices so far, including "Skins" and "The Hard Times of RJ Berger," have been interesting but ultimately disappointing. And Teen Wolf, so bland from the get-go, doesn't promise to change that streak.
As a Michael Fox-loving member of the demographic it targeted, I most certainly saw the 1985 film "Teen Wolf," but I don't remember much save it was a comedy and not very good. Teen Wolf, which premieres Sunday night on MTV, is also one of those two things and it is not a comedy.
Teen Wolf bounds so wildly between its main plot points that I began to wonder if my press copy of the show had skipped some scenes or if they'd been assembled out of order.
You might watch Teen Wolf and find a diverting if familiar, brooding teen drama, and that's fine. I found myself watching it and thinking: I want my MTV.
