Andy Says: Why 'Teen Wolf' Lovers Scott & Allison Are More Intense Than 'Twilight' Lame-os Bella & Edward

Fri, June 3, 2011 6:33pm EST by 33 Comments

Sorry Twi-hards, but Scott & Allison’s love games make Edward & Bella’s ‘saga’ seem a bedtime story.

“Love. Be afraid.” That’s the tagline for MTV’s new series Teen Wolf, and I can’t think of a more appropriate way to describe the intense romance between outsider-turned-werewolf Scott (Tyler Posey) and closet-werewolf-hunter Allison (Crystal Reed.)

Allow me, with a little help from the show’s stars, to explain why their sordid tale will have you hooked — and why it’s leaps and bounds more intriguing than that of Edward (Robert Pattinson) and Bella (Kristen Stewart.)

For starters, Scott and Allison’s romance plays out like a modern-day Romeo & Juliet, a task Twilight aimed for but seemed to miss.

While Edward and Bella’s differences are one-sided (he’s a vampire, she’s not) Scott and Allison’s problems reach a whole new level. Not only is Scott a werewolf, but Allison comes from a family of werewolf hunters, making them equal-parts lovers and enemies… at least when the moon is full.

“[Allison’s] aunt teaches her the way of the werewolf hunters,” Crystal tells HollywoodLife.com, teasing that “maybe she finds out Scott’s a werewolf and maybe she goes after him. Who knows?”

So while their drama isn’t always relatable — I’m pretty sure I’ve never dated anyone who was unknowingly trying to kill me — it’s far more compelling than the same-old emo story being told by Twilight.

“They’re so in love, but there are so many aspects of their relationship that they can’t share,” Tyler adds. “It sucks, but I have to deal with it, because I’m in love.”

Read between the lines here: While Bella caught onto Edward’s true nature pretty quickly, Scott and Allison’s game of cat and mouse will get the opportunity it deserves to play out for most of the show’s first season.

I know many of you haven’t seen Teen Wolf yet, since it doesn’t premiere until June 5 after the 2011 MTV Movie Awards, but believe me when I tell you that you’re going to love it. And more importantly, you’re going to love Scott and Allison.

i think Teen Wolf is by FAR better than Twilight,twilight was fun for a little, but Allison and Scott’s little game that there playing is more intense and in my opinion is more of the romeo and Juliette cuz it IS a forbidden love, Allison’s family hunts werewolves Scott is a werewolf but at the season finale love seems to concord all, plus the people on Teen Wolf are a lot hotter then twilight :P

No. Edward and Bella will always be the best. No doubt about.
You are just being biased. You’re saying that Twilight isn’t as good because Bella isn’t Edward’s mortal enemy. You’re leaving out the part where she ties Edward up with his real mortal enemy, Jacob. Who is a werewolf!Without Twilight, I doubt this show would have even been made. I’m pretty they ripped the werewolf thing off from Twilight. So DO NOT say that Scott and Allyson’s chemistry is better. Because it surely isn’t. And you say that they play a game of cat and mouse? I really don’t see how. Allyson went out with him on the first episode. She never rejected him, and she never has. So really, please get your facts straight before writing an article like this. Yes, I am a crazed Twilight fan. Yes, I really like the show Teen Wolf. But now you got me pissed off about it, so Teen Wolf lost one of it’s viewers. Great job, Andy. I’m sure you’re proud.

First of all they did not rip the werewolf thing off of twilight! they based it on the movie called “TEEN WOLF” yeah, look things up before you speak your mind and then look stupid which you are. the only reason people like twilight is because the actors are hot which they really arn’t. twilight is stupid and it’s a flash in the pan. noone will remember it a year from now. :)

Are you kidding?! I see NO chemistry between them!!! They look like just another regular show that people might watch but it will never ever compare to Twilight!! people will tune out. There is only one Bella and Edward!! They will never be replaced! They have the BEST chemistry! You must not have been thinking when you wrote this! Did someone pay you? Twilight Saga: Edward and Bella Forever!!!!!!

so how much were you guys paid by Mtv to write that? lol we all know what to expect from mtv shows-budgets of 10.00 per show, bad acting, and a shelf life of about four weeks(waves at the low rent version of “Skins”)

OOOOgh pleeeeeeeeeaseeeeee this is soooooo lame articleeee…Trying to make Teen Wolf to win points by comparing it with Twilight THAT IS SAME OLD SAME OLD
Twilight caught everyone by surprise and that is why any other movie being filmed with premeditation of having the same impact want work. Ah and by the way THAT LAME SAME OLD TWILIGHT HAS EARNED MILLIONS AND WILL CONTINUE TO DO SOOO AS LONG AS QUITE EVERYONE CANNOT WAIT TILL THE NEXT ONE

Hahhahahahhaa the article talk about Twilight like some indie movie no one knows, when indeed they can’t stand a day not writing for Rob and Kris or anything related, they will assocciate any kind of crap with Twilight just so they can have a guaranteed attention
PLEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEASEEEEEEEEEEE – U ARE SOOOOOO LAME IT’s STARTING TO BECOME DISGUSTING
