I have been following the hit Disney show Wizards Of Waverly Place, since season 1. Season 2 recently made air and once again I'm following the show week after week.
For those of you who have never taken the time to catch the show, it
is about a family who's 3 children are wizards! Their father was once a
wizard (he married a mortal and lost his powers though), and teaches his
3 children new spells, charms, and potions in nearly every episode.
For those of you who loved Sabrina the Teenage Witch, you will love Wizards of Waverly Place!
This weeks particular episode (season 2, episode 2: Beware Wolf) focuses mainly on the oldest sibling Justin.
Justin decides to meet the girl he had been talking to on some wizard
social networking site. The girl is drop dead gorgeous, however Alex
immediately thinks that there is something she is hiding from Justin due
to her odd behavior.
In one particular scene Alex asks the girl to hand her her sweater,
and instead of picking it up and handing it to her in a normal manner,
she snatches it up with her teeth and begins a mini tug of war game with
Alex. In another scene shortly after, Alex catches her lapping water
from a glass, instead of drinking it like a normal human being would.
While out on a date, Alex decides to follow Justin and his new girl
pal, and she comes to the conclusion that this girl is not a girl at
all, that she is a dog. When Alex confronts her, she tells them that she
is not a dog, but a werewolf!
Justin tries to play it off that he does not care that his girlfriend
is a werewolf, and he plants a kiss on the girls cheek. After kissing
her though, she tells him that when you kiss a werewolf, you become a
Shortly after turning into a werewolf Justin and his new
Weregirlfriend run off together. Before leaving though he tells Alex not
to tell their parents; he however says it in a manner that basically
means 'hurry up, go get mom and dad!'
It is now up to Alex to find her parents to let them know that Justin
has run off with his new werewolf girlfriend...and that he too is now a
werewolf. Once she gathers up her mom and dad, they now have to go and
find him, and hopefully change him back into a human!
Beware Wolf was hilarious from start to finish. Besides having it's
funny moments though, there is also a HUGE lesson in the show to be
learned. Basically Beware Wolf, teaches kids not to meet with ANY
strangers that they may be talking to on the internet, that they are not
always what they seem to be. This lesson in the show is by far the best
lesson that I think Wizards Of Waverly Place has ever gotten across on
I highly, highly recommend the show, and this episode in particular.
This one is for both young and old alike. Wizards Of Waverly Place has
something for everyone, and could be an excellent topic starter after
the show is over.
