American graduate student Randi Wallace travels to Britain to study mythology with Professor Ian Matheson. She arrives expecting a stodgy old academic, but Ian is young, and the two are immediately attracted to one other. That complication quickly pales when Randi spends a night camping on the Moors and is bitten by a werewolf. For the rest of the series, Randi and Ian investigate supernatural phenomena together while they search for a cure for Randi's curse. Eventually, their search takes them from British academia to American television, when they move back to Randi's native California, and Ian becomes host of a trashy television talk show focusing on psychic phenomena. The series was an old-style romantic comedy with a touch of horror. Written by

A joint American/English production, the first 14 episodes were produced entirely in England. When the English backers dropped out, the production moved to Los Angeles, all of the English supporting cast were dropped, Dr. Ian Matheson became an occult talk-show host, and the show was renamed "Love and Curses".

A short-lived program for a short-lived network, She-Wolf began as serious horror, set in London. As episodes progressed, the writers started sprinkling in a little humor. Midway through its run, it settled on a mixture of comedy and Gothic horror that would later see huge success in Joss Wheadon's "Buffy the Vampire Slayer".
The formula didn't last long - budget cuts and network fiddling lead to retooling the show, now a comedy based in Los Angeles. It retained the supernatural themes, but not the serious horror. The final third of its run had a noticeable drop in production value, and while those episodes could at best be described as silly, they were also very, VERY funny.
A flawed program, but influential and entertaining.
