❝ In the end, Teen Wolf is a show that has a confusing canon, not enough character development, new characters that don’t serve any purpose, no LGBT representation, a fanbase that’s too smart for the show, and TPTB that want to act as if everything is awesome. ❞

Why Are Teen Wolf Season 4 Ratings Slipping?

(via tilneyhale)

ugh. okay.

First of all, the link in this article that supposedly leads to ratings actually leads to the season 4 wiki page, which…does not have ratings on it. You can find those here and here. Since the show has already been renewed for a fifth season in addition to snagging $11.5 million in tax credits (the most allocated to any TV show by California’s Film and Television Tax Credit program), it seems to be doing just fine. A slight slip in midseason ratings (none of which are anywhere close to the show’s lowest rated eps, which occur in seasons 1-2) is nothing to get worked up over. 

If you wanted to get worked up over something, we could take about the fact that 3A, which parts of fandom loudly and repeatedly proclaimed was the worst season ever, left seasons 1 and 2 in the dust.

But one point I really take issue with here is the OP’s assertion that there’s a lack of LGBT representation in this show.

Let me be clear, I’d love to see a bi Stiles. I’ve never cared about Sterek becoming canon (adore it in fic, don’t think it would be a good choice in the show), but representation does matter. I’d love it if all the jokes and hints we’d seen between Stiles and Scott, Danny, and even Caitlin had actually led up to a confirmed canon bisexual member of the main cast. 

This didn’t end up happening. That doesn’t mean I’m going to conveniently forget about the queer characters we have gotten.

Incidentally, it was confirmed at SDCC that we haven’t seen the last of Danny

Danny, you know, the token gay who we know nothing about. Besides him being a hacker, being a goalie, having a thing for Armani aftershave and not at all thinking it’s weird for dudes to tackle him in order to smell him, maintaining a close friendship with Jackson and putting up with him in spite of him being Jackson, being interested in telluric currents in spite of his teacher trying to steer him into another topic, wearing the scar on his chest like a badge of survival, knowing about werewolves and trying to date one anyway…to say that he’s a token character is both hurtful and dismissive.

No, he isn’t a member of the main cast and it would be great if he showed up more—there’s a reason the #moredanny campaign even got off the ground). But he’s been a regularly occurring character in every season until now and has shown up to do more than wave a “token gay character” sign around.

Then we have Mason, who’s new this season and also gay, though people have been too busy brushing him off as Danny 2.0 (because they’re both gay and brown, so that makes them essentially interchangeable—what a progressive mindset) to care if we learn more about him. We also had Ethan, who received quite a lot of screen time unrelated to his queerness (and which, in a neat bit of subversion, was played as being an opposing force to his bad guy status and not as a driving force of it).

Oh, and Caitlin. Caitlin who canonically is into both guys and girls, but who’s gone down in fandom’s collective memory as having the audacity to make out with Stiles and ask about his own sexual preferences. He didn’t give her an answer, disappointingly, but that doesn’t make her own queerness any less legitimate. 

Sterek isn’t canon. That doesn’t mean the show has zero LGBT representation. And the way some fans conflate representation with Sterek leaves a very bad taste in my mouth.

Another issue I have is with the argument that the women on this show are only there to be love interests. Saying that Kira is just an Allison replacement erases the importance of her own distinct storyline as well as the significance of having Asian character as a regular cast member. The “girl finds out her family has a secret, girl learns said secret and rises to the challenge” is such a broad premise that it’s ludicrous to say Allison coming from a family of secret werewolf hunters is just like Kira being descended from a Japanese fox spirit.

Maybe it’s time to ask why so many members of fandom see being a love interest as detrimental to a female character’s role. Braeden (a WOC who was such a fan favorite her role was expanded considerably) had her own agenda before she ever laid eyes on Derek and continues to be a fully rendered character in her own right. For further extrapolations on how damaging it is to act as if WOC suddenly have less agency or character development solely by virtue of acquiring a love interest, please see Sleepy Hollow fandom. Viewing women as lesser because they’re associated with men is such a detrimental mindset. It is, in fact, possible to be a strong independent woman who has the occasional scene in bed with Derek Hale and his five thousand abdominal muscles.

To name a few: Allison struggled with loyalty to her family just as much as her loyalty to her friends. Kira’s awkwardness, sword skills, and kitsune heritage didn’t suddenly become less important as she became more interested in Scott. Lydia has outlasted multiple love interests and continues to hold her own as the brains of the operation even when she’s coming apart at the seams. Malia has a slightly unconventional relationship with Stiles, and she’s also trying to confront her past and find her place in the human world.

This show can be campy as hell. It burns through tertiary characters like mad (who knows why anyone even lives in Beacon Hills by now), has some huge plot holes, and no one knows how to write a timeline. But it has multiple women on the writing team and consistently gives us female characters who have rich storylines of their own without relying on men to be vessels for them. It has racial representation that, in an era of white leading males, sets it apart from many other currently airing shows. At BiteCon earlier this year, there were panels at which every person onstage was a POC.

Finally, issues with the formulaic nature of the show are something I don’t quite understand. I’m assuming that people with this issue aren’t a fan of…probably any procedural show. Teen Wolf is not a procedural but it has, from the very beginning, been about characters who juggle supernatural issues with real life while trying to deal with bad guys. Again, it’s a broad premise that can encompass so much it seems strange to cite it as a negative.
