    Death Valley | Full Episodes, Photos, Episode Synopsis and Recaps | MTV

    So did anyone watch Death Valley on MTV last night? It's kinda like the tv show Reno 911, but with monsters. The first episode, I thought, was only ok. I think the premise is solid, the setup decent enough and the show has some serious potential. The gore is no held back at all, the practical effects for the zombies and werewolves was pretty damn good. But most of the characters were mostly unlikable douches or too annoying to care for. I'm going to give it a few more episodes to see if it's worth keeping up on, and I hope it gets a bit better. Like I said, it wasn't bad, but there was room for improvement.

    For those that haven't seen or heard of it, here's a trailer.

    No, I didn't watch it.

    I might give it a look -I'm sure they'll replay it.
    The problem is that normally the words 'An MTV original series' put it immediately on my ignore list.

    That's normally how I see it, too. But I like that Teen Wolf show they have, and the trailer looks awesome, so I'll watch it.

    That was great when John John put his fist right through that zombie's head,and then proceeded to shoot the other zombie with his arm still through the head.

    The show has gotten progressively better with each episode. They've toned down the "mtv" a bit and have started to let the characters flesh out. I absolutely love their take on werewolves. It's hilarious, absurd and frightening all at the same time. I'm glad I've kept watching every week.

    It's a surprise.

    I fully expected another MTV crap-fest but have been entertained so far.

    I get a kick out of the little opening scene of every episode.

    "It looked like a candy cane."

    "Dude,you smell like balls."

    It's not a bad series, I decided to give it a try and I'm still watching it.

    I think they could've done without the undercover rookie at the vamp parties, not because it's a bad story, but in this universe it's supposed to be that we see through essentially a TV crew; one that would be out of place at the party.
