Bitten

Critics Consensus

Though it attempts to bring in a broader audience than your average SyFy fare, Bitten is ultimately another cliched, cheesy soap.

Tv Season Info

While back in the fold, Elena's overwhelmed with conflicting feelings of passion and distrust for Clay Danvers (Greyston Holt), an ex-lover and pack enforcer who changed her in the first place.

Critic Reviews for Bitten Season 1

All Critics (16) | Top Critics (7)

Though it lacks the production value or special-effects budget of the Twilight movies, Bitten has a smooth, slick look and boasts solid performances.

Oct 28, 2019 | Full Review…

Bitten is mildly diverting while also being pretty goofy in spots -- even for a werewolf drama.

Jan 13, 2014 | Rating: C+ | Full Review…

Bitten seems aimed more at a mainstream audience than the hard-core werewolf/vampire crowd, which is okay. Probably smart, in fact.

Jan 13, 2014 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…

Bitten fails to bring anything new to the table by placing far too much importance on its uninteresting gesture at a love triangle.

Oct 28, 2019 | Full Review…

The presentation of mythology and backstory, such an important aspect of a show like Bitten, is handled in a laughably inelegant way.

Jan 13, 2014 | Rating: C | Full Review…

Aside from some insight into werewolf-pack politics (an area, frankly, True Blood has already overdone), Bitten doesn't turn over many new leaves

Jan 10, 2014 | Full Review…

Whether we need another werewolf show or not, this Canadian production isn't too bad.

Oct 28, 2019 | Full Review…

In a world where it seems book to movie series are, almost, more prevalent than supernatural based stories, I'm glad to see someone choose a slightly different, definitely more difficult path.

Oct 28, 2019 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…

Bitten is packed with angst and soapy drama, but not a lot of pleasure.

Jan 13, 2014 | Rating: 2/5 | Full Review…

Unfortunately, the hammy dialogue, poor production quality, and much of the support cast undercut Bitten's appeal.

Jan 13, 2014 | Rating: 6/10 | Full Review…

Right now, Bitten is a nibble of a show.

Jan 13, 2014 | Rating: C | Full Review…

Bitten was just pounding out the twists in the final moments.

Audience Reviews for Bitten: Season 1

  • Aug 01, 2014
    Laura Vandervoort stars in the supernatural SyFy series Bitten, a tawdry and inane melodrama. The show is poorly written and has an absurd mythos that's confusing and hard to follow. In Season 1 the Stonehaven wolf pack comes under attack from several rogue wolves that seek to overthrow them; meanwhile Elena Michaels, the only female of the pack, struggles between her loyalty to the pack and her desire to live a normal human life. Unfortunately, the series does a poor job at making the pack sympathetic and doesn't really provide a reason to root for them. Additionally, the show is rather sexually explicit, and it feels especially gratuitous. Cashing in on the recent trend of supernatural thrillers, Season 1 of Bitten tries to get by on derivative storytelling devises and generic themes.

    Loved every moment!!! Wish there could be more 😢

    This series started of with an interesting premisse, but then sort of forgets about it and then kind of contradicts it. There is also a love triangle that is poorly executed and frankly unbelievable. And this show suffers from the same disregard of physics that many contemporary entertainment contains. A 50 kilo woman can easily beat a male twice her size. In both human and wolf form. This show could have been so much more.

    If you read any of the books, you will be HIGHLY disappointed by this series. The acting is mediocre at best, the animation is awful(but thankfully in brief spurts), and they completely butchered several key characters(looks & personally). With all that said, if you've never read the books, you MAY find this series enjoyable.

    I'm trying to watch this show on Netflix. Its pathetic how weak the "pack" is. In halfway through season 1 and its very nearly unbearable. I have had to just stop watching at least 3 separate episodes, out of pure frustration because the pack is so weak. WEAK WEAK WEAK!!! This show gives werewolves a bad name. If not for the EXTREMELY limited choices of quality shows to watch on Netflix these days, I wouldn't even be forcing myself to watch this pathetic, frustrating excuse for a T.V. show. Damn shame too, because its the 1st Canadian T.V. show (of the supernatural nature) that I've ever watched that drove me this INSANE!!! OMG!!! GARBAGE!!! Weakest "pack" of werewolves I've ever seen lol Pussies!

    I have read the series (Armstrong) loved the story lines. I ached to read more. I held off on watching the TV Series as long as I could because the characters in my mind were nothing like the show cast. I can't help but feel that if the producers and writers of the show had stuck to the novels a little closer the show would have attained a higher regard. The sex scenes alone would have covered televisions in steamy primal sweat. As it is now I find it a bit too teen drama lacking in the essence of a strong female lead. Just my opinion

    Been so long waiting for this show to start in the UK. And have loved every episode so far. Greyston is the perfect Clay. I so don't want season 2 to take too long to show once this season ends. I also want someone throw rotten tomato at the critic as if his comment is insulting to me he or she is probably just as rotten to other Kelley Armstrong fans.

    Loved this show it always kept me on edge wanting more.

    Bitten is another Science Fiction & Fantasy series that is too much known and that hasn't anything interesting in its horrible and cliched story to catch the spectator, to not talk about the awful and not intriguing cast that a show with this caliber needs.
