Lucan is great
12 September 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I'm a sucker for fugitive/Man-on-the run shows and this was terrific. It was a cross between the classic 'Fugitive' TV series and The Incredible Hulk. (Two of the best of the genre.) I loved the fact that Lucan had animal/wolf like abilities and the way his eyes glowed reddish-gold when he put them to practice. It was icing on the cake and not over-done. He didn't quite have 'super powers.' And of course he's a true hero you can relate to – a sweet, easy-going and ruggedly handsome young man on a quest to find his real parents. Along the way he helps people. Kevin Brophy was perfectly cast!! Why he was not utilized more in Hollywood I simply don't know. He played Lucan with great earnestness and you truly believed in the character and wanted him to find what he was looking for.

I have only seen 8 episodes (inc. the Pilot) I wish I could get the other 4 to complete my collection. This show should have lasted longer. It was smart and well-acted with a fascinating concept based on a true case of a wolf-boy in the woods. I hope MGM releases this sometime soon. They should do like Warner Brothers and make direct-to-order DVDs. I would definitely order!
