Happy Wine Wednesday! Two new spectacular guests to the pod - Laura Stone and Devil Doll - join me this week for the home going services of Derek Hale. Grab your wine and join us as we unpack our feelings about the Teen Wolf movie. Laura and Devil Doll are both passionate Teen Wolf fans and I had the best time talking about this mess with them.
Before getting into this mess of a movie, I asked Laura and Devil Doll for their reflections on Teen Wolf as a series. We then get into our deep dive of the movie. We take the "compliment sandwich" approach to this conversation. We've got a very robust set of grievances with this film sandwiched between very thin layers of compliments. It should come as no surprise that we kick off our critical thoughts about the film with the many, many crimes committed by Jeff Davis against Derek Hale. We chat about the messy ways in which this film tries to grapple with the absence of Dylan O'Brien and you better believe we talk about the egregious treatment of Arden Cho.
We also lament that Jeff Davis decided to celebrate the opportunity to infuse more adult content into the film thanks to it being on Paramount Plus by giving us a sprinkling of profanity and ass shots - hence the title of this episode. We also give thanks to Colton Haynes and Ian Bohen for bringing some much needed camp to this film. Truly wish Jackson had been given more to do!
A lot of my friends had thoughts about this film, so this is the first of two episodes in which we will be discussing it - so stay tuned!
Give Laura a follow on Twitter here and over on IG here. You can also check out her website at this link.

Thanks so much for listening! Friendly reminder - we drink, we know things, we use adult language, and we have a great time.
