Lucan
8 May 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Another one of the many many good short-lived shows that got the axe for one reason or another. The premise of the show is that Lucan was lost in the northern Minnesota wilderness as a baby and was captured when he was 10 years old and kept at a research university for the next 10 years. Dr. Hoagland took the boy under his wings and taught him everything he needed to know to survive in the civilized world. At the age of 20, Lucan caught two men stealing drugs from a lab and there was a fire in which one of the men died. Lucan was blamed for the death and had to run away and was pursued by an obsessed cop, Mr. Prentiss. Lucan was still always in contact with Dr. Hoagland and would meet with him to give advice or help him elude Mr. Prentiss. Lucan's mission was to find his real parents and followed any leads he could find. Sometimes this was a detriment when people with ill intentions used this to lure him in for their own selfish reasons. Lucan didn't really have any super powers, he just reverted to his wolf/animal instinct when under pressure. He could run faster and jump higher but he couldn't make anyone disappear. This show followed the popular formula originated in The Fugitive series - a man on the run who went from town to town, always made friends easily and was being pursued by an obsessed cop. Lucan was an MGM production, so I am assuming Ted Turner owns the show. I have managed to track down the pilot and 6 other episodes and am seeking the other 5. I also acquired the rare movie Stalk The Wild Child starring David Janssen. This movie is from 1976, about the same time Lucan would have been filming. It is very similar to Lucan but I don't know if this movie was actually any inspiration for the Lucan series or not.
