Bitten - The Complete First Season (2014/E1 Blu-ray set)

Picture: B Sound: B Extras: C Episodes: D

Bitten is another show hoping to bank off the success of Twilight and True Blood with a concept that werewolves are Gucci models with perfect abs and jawlines. The story centers on Elena Michaels (portrayed by Laura Vandervoort), a female werewolf who is torn between a normal life with her human boyfriend Philip in Toronto and her obligations to her wolf pack in upstate New York. Among her pack is her ex-fiancé Clayton, who is responsible for her becoming a werewolf. The drama is lame and the special effects are generic. Spanning a massive four discs, this bore of a show features thirteen episodes clocking in at a whopping 572 minutes. Yikes.

Episodes on the disc are titled Summons, Prodigal, Trespass, Grief, Bitten, Committed, Stalking, Prisoner, Vengeance, Descent, Settling, Caged, and finally Ready. From the titles alone, you can pretty much guess at where the show is going starting with Elena's vulnerability upon her first bite to torn between two lovers, and finally she stands on two hind legs as a fierce predator.

The sound and picture are fine however, presented in 1080p high definition in 1.78:1 widescreen aspect ratio, and a powerful DTS-HD MA lossless 5.1 track on each episode. Subtitles on the disc are in English SDH. Bonus Features are a Behind-the-Scenes Featurette, Deleted Scenes, Split Screen Stunt Choreography, and Audio Commentary with Laura Vandervoort, and Producers.

If you are a diehard fan of Werewolves or a big fan of the Twilight series then this may be the show for you. I'm more a classic monsters fan so this didn't do much for me.
