Grad student Eric Cord's roommate and best friend Ted gives Eric a gun with silver bullets and confesses that he is a werewolf, bitten while he was working on a boat owned by Captain Janos Skorzeney. A pentagram appears on his palm a few hours before he changes. The only way to end the curse is to kill the original werewolf in this bloodline. Eric ties Ted up but he changes, breaks free and bites Eric, who is forced to shoot him. Charged with murder, Eric jumps bail and begins searching for the werewolf who bit Ted, who turns out to be Skorzeney. Eric is pursued by "Alamo Joe" Rogan, a bounty hunter who saw Eric change and now uses silver bullets. Written by Anonymous

Rogan: There are two kinds of people in this world: those who believe in flying saucers, and those who don't. I've never been one much for believing in anything I couldn't wrap my hands around and shake... but then, up 'til two weeks ago, I didn't know Eric Cord.

The Best Show that started the FOX Network
13 February 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This was one of the pilot shows to start the New FOX network. (At the time FOX was a new network, and was only available on cable) It was innovative for TV much less cable. It was the first show to really use an horror icon other than Dracula or Frankenstein. The show probably would be related to an A. Spelling version of werewolves, but anything that Rick Baker was a part of could never be wrong. Show had plenty of action, good characters, but never got developed, as it was not Buffy time just yet. Basically the show centered around Eric Cord, a college student who is bitten by his best friend, who happened to be a werewolf, and had to kill him. Now on the run, for jumping bail for the murder of his best friend, and being turned into a werewolf himself, Eric is on a quest to sever the original bloodline and end the curse forever.
