John J. York IS the WEREWOLF. The best werewolf tv series next to "Lucan".
2 October 2001 | by (Lancaster, California) – See all my reviews

"Werewolf" was one of the first tv series that the FOX channel aired in its early years when it was trying to prove to the FCC that it could become a new network, and eventually did. John J. York plays a young man, Eric, in search of his arch-enemy Skorzeny. He must find him because if he can get the blood from the head of the wolf line that attacked him, a possible serum could be made to end his fits of rage that turn him into a werewolf. However, Skorzeny can sense the young man's presence before he can find him. When they do find one another, it could be a wolf fight to end all wolf fights. It could mean one of them will die and Skorzeny is the strongest and biggest of them all. To make matters worse for Eric, he has a bounty hunter by the mane of Alamo Joe Rogan that is on his trail ready to shoot to kill.

John J. York plays Eric Cord and is perfect for the role. Chuck Connors is deliciously chilling and delightfully eerie as Captain Janos Skorzeny, wearing a one-eye patch and speaking in a pirate-like voice. It is always a treat and a grand highlight when Chuck Connors guest stars. "Werewolf" is a well-developing werewolf story and each episode is a story of its own. The highlight of most episodes is when Eric turns into a werewolf and when he fights with another werewolf in other episodes. There are many surprises and twists in this series. You don't have to wait for the last episode to see a grand finale. The story attempts to make several turns. So you never want to miss not one episode. Another plus for the series is the heart-pulsing guitar rock music they play. It really sets the tone and mood of the show.

During the first few episodes, there contained male nudity, mostly of John J. York, which was necessary to the scenes, especially after he became a werewolf. Sometimes we would see him laying on the ground bare backside not knowing if he survived or died. The nude scenes were tastefully done. However, when the tv series was repeated on the USA Network, the USA Network deleted the nude scenes and some gore along with too many commercial interruptions.

Never since, The Fugitive (ABC,1963-67), The Incredible Hulk (CBS,1978-82), Lucan (ABC,1977-78) and Hot Pursuit (tv-1984) has there been a tv series with such continuing momentum and suspense.

The FOX channel even tried a genius gimmick to get people to watch the "Werewolf" tv series by displaying a toll-fee number on the screen that if they have seen or know someone that is a werewolf, to give them a call. And the people responded.
