And I'm pleasantly surprised at how retro the werewolf makeup is. He's an old fashioned wolfman, not the obligatory CGI monster.

Yeah as much as I love a scary, Rick Baker-style werewolf, keeping the makeup more subtle definitely works better for a show like this. It still allows for some recognizable emotion when he's in his werewolf form, and it avoids having to deal with the torn clothes and him waking up naked in the woods all the time. lol

It'll be interesting to see if they can develop the mythology beyond just the werewolf hunters though. Unlike with vampires, it seems like there has never really been anything very rich or complex done for werewolves (unless it actually involved vampires as their enemies, which I HOPE doesn't happen here).
