  • A howling good show

    You've got a high school senior/jock Tommy Dawkins who got bitten by a werewolf during a camping trip before school started. He is now transformed into a werewolf trying to control his new wolfy side and side effects who turns to a fellow classmate later friend Merton Dingle who is a goth and fantasy fan who also doubles an expert in the supernatural and has a comic side to him. Later in season 2 you get Lori Baxter a kickboxer.

    Tommy deals with all sorts of supernatural beings and foes such as vampires, ghosts, demons, mummies, zombies, and even other werewolves.

    This show is full of interesting story lines, characters, jokes, action, and even romance. Plenty of villains and challenges they face. There's lots to enjoy from this show although I wouldn't recommend it for everyone mainly to young children who won't understand it and others who get frightened easily. Still it's a very good show and is so much better than most shows today.moreless
  • A Howlingly Entertaining Hit

    Okay I have to admit I really do love this show, it's a good introduction to horror for children, the episodes are scary but not too scary and have just the right amount of humor, the horror movie references are great and the characters are memorable.

    Merton is one of the most lovable tv characters to date, and he's the reason why I wanted to go goth at one point.

    I first caught it in during the second season and it has been one of my favorite tv shows since, I heavily reccomend watching it.

  • This show is definitly the best of ABC family before kyle xy.

    This show stopped my life when it was on television. Whatever i was doing, I dropped it. This show was my personnal favorite nd was very sad when it went. One day, it just disappeared, as if it never existed. Furious, i wrote letter to the show's production company which was never responded. If possible, the show should be brought back. The actors and actresses aren't too old to not do it again. Brandon Quinn has been on a couple of shows as guest stars since the show. This show is my all- time favorite. It had werewolves, evil villians, great scripts, it had it all. I wish the show could be brought back or at least put onto DVD!

  • A jock turned werewolf, a Gothic ally and comedian, and a kick boxing female. For three seasons Big Wolf made the audience smile with its jokes and characters. It was a personal favorite of mine as a child, but was under appreciated by many.moreless

    Big Wolf on campus was a great show. It always made me smile and it still does to this day. Unfortunately, the episodes don't flow with one another besides a few simple facts or returning characters, but it still was a amazing show to watch.

    I think that the 65 episodes was a great way to end the series and give it is bow with the finale and talks with the cast. this show had movie references and no matter how many times Tommy would ask "What happened in the Movie?" and Merton would discuss the rating and opinions instead of the plot, you had to smile. Danny Smith "Merton", probably my favorite character and GREAT actor who really became the funny goth kid and loyal friend. His lines were genius and made me laugh or smile. Few actors today really show a dedication to a character like he did. Each villain had its own spin to the original. Sure, they were very easily defeated with little complications, but it still kept you watching,kept you wanting more.

    Overall, Great show especially for younger kids, but it can be watched and loved by anyone. Its charm seeps into you and you can't help but say that it was a really good show.moreless
  • A Canadian Supernatural comedy

    I remember my sister and I used to watch this show. Fortunately I never really understood the jokes until I re-watched the episodes online. Tommy Dawkins whose the star quarterback of Pleasantville High, does live in the city named after the movie. It's quite quirky, but in a good way. I think Merton is one of my favorite characters in the series. He'd always make pop culture references, even at times when it doesn't seem relevant. This show could last longer if it hadn't been for Disney purchasing the then Fox Family (at least that's what I've heard). As the show goes on, some of the characters either get axed or that they appear less and less. Overall great show.moreless
