Well Maniacs, after sitting through the horrendous HELIX on the SyFy Channel last weekend, I’m not sure how I missed trailers for their new Werewolf series titled Bitten. Here is the super trailer below for what we can expect this season. It certainly looks like “True Blood Lite” to me. On the flip side, at least the SyFy Channel is trying again. Anyone catch the series premiere?

Synopsis:Elena Micheals (Laura Vandervoort) thought she left the supernatural world behind when she left Stonehaven, thinking it was 'for good this time'. Until the night she got the mysterious call from her pack leader asking her to come back home. So knows she is heading back, leaving the life of a normal journalist back in Toronto for a moment to re-enter the world of werewolves, rules about protecting the pack and a man she has spent years trying to get out of her system. Oh and did she mention the was the only living female werewolf in existence”. - IMDB

Bitten features Laura Vandervoort, Greyston Holt, and Greg Bryk.

Bitten airs Mondays at 10|9c on the SyFy Channel.

 Never heard of it.

 The show isn't a SyFy production. It's produced out of Canada with SyFy buying the US distribution rights. Only one episode in, so it's hard to judge, but as a fan of the source material, I can say I was pretty happy with the translation. Far, FAR more faithful to the book than TRUE BLOOD did, even in that show's first season.

Some of the CG effects are a little shaky, but still better than about 90% of CG creatures you see on TV nowadays. The main characters are young and attractive (as they were in the books), but the show is not populated solely by "supermodels". 

I would recommend it if you're a fan of these kinds of stories, but I would caution - this is based on an already completed story (the books), and so, if you're coming in fresh, it might seem like a slow build up to the story. I know a lot of the TV-viewing audience have become "instant gratification" people (I saw calls for AGENTS OF S.H.I.E.L.D. to be cancelled after two episodes; similar thing happens with THE WALKING DEAD), so if you're one of those, you might just wait and DVR it and binge-watch when the season is done.

Is this supposed to be based on the Otherworld series by Kelley Armstrong?!  If not, then she might have a copyright case on her hands, because it looks EXTREMELY close to the first book.

With that said, this looks awful.  And I still resent SyFy for the way they handled the Dresden Files books.  And pretty much everything else they "create."  So I'll be not watching this.

Just double-checked.  Yes, it is based on the Kelley Armstrong books.  Now poor Kelley has to watch her brainchild get destroyed the way Jim Butcher did a few years ago with Dresden.  I read the first two books in the series, and... well, the most I can say is "meh."

But I still hate you, SyFy.

CaptAmerica04, Agree with you 10010% about SYFY messing up Dresden Files. I am a fan of the books, but I was greatly disappointed with the tv series. On the other hand, I think Paul Blackthorne was perfect as Dresden
