Instead: Here's a trailer for a show that I'm hoping will actually turn out to be good.
Fingers crossed! And, if time permits, more tomorrow.
There is one quality that silver has that isn't shared by many other decorative metals. It tarnishes. Silver has to be constantly polished or coated with something to protect it from the air. If it's left exposed, it develops a disgusting black crust that ruins the look of the silver. (Some people get silver especially for the disgusting black crust, but they have problems.) It turns out, though, that silver isn't reacting with the air. Silver is pretty nonreactive - staying the same in water, air, and most solvents. But tiny bits of an element suspended in the air combine with silver to make that blackened goop that coats it. What element is it? Sulfur.
Otherwise known as brimstone — that's right — the devil's element. Put together silver and sulfur and you get silver sulfide. Now, silver sulfide is not shown to be toxic to any other animals, but it's not soluble in water, and so can only be ingested. In a werewolf, it would lift from the silver and travel through the bloodstream of the animal, blocking off blood vessels and poisoning cells. And it is this that kills the werewolf.Now, I don't know if this flick is going to be any good (werewolf flicks as of late tend to be on the bottom rung of 'suck' these days... but that's just my humble opinion) but I love a good rule tweak like this. It's smart and it totally plays with the established canon (while still upholding it).
