Did You Know?


This was an unaired pilot episode for the TV show Wolf Lake (2001). While it has many of the same cast members, there are many important differences:
  • Rather than being a detective looking for his lost girlfriend, "Noah Cassidy" (later renamed John Kanin) is posing as a government wildlife management agent but is really investigating the werewolf clans of Wolf Lake.

  • "Sheriff Kohanek" (Sheriff Donner) has a wife who is missing rather than dead, and also has a sister-in-law to whom he is close.

  • "Dr. Sokolov" (Willard Cates) is not mayor of the town. He does have a son (and a daughter who is killed), but it is not Luke. Luke instead is his dead daughter's boyfriend, who is set to take over the werewolf clan.

  • "Professor Duke Joseph" (Sherman Blackstone) reveals that he is on a sacred mission to maintain balance between the clans.

  • Both the sheriff and the native American appear to be human.

  • There are differences in the way the werewolf pack is portrayed. Here there seem to be several clans, fighting against each other and against the humans. There is mention of "the great war of the clans".

would have survived now
31 October 2005 | by See all my reviews

This show was one of the most original shows I have ever seen. Unfortunately it came out at a time when I think audiences and networks weren't willing to receive it. Political and era shows, especially reality t.v. were much more popular and Wolf Lake got lost in the mix of it. Wolf Lake brought something refreshing with excellent actors and writers and kept you coming back for more! Now we live in a time of interesting, atypical story plots that contain the unusual. If Wolf Lake would have came out now, it would have been extremely popular, especially with people loving shows like Lost, Medium, Invasion, 4400...things with sci-fi like plots.

Too bad CBS didn't give it a chance and wouldn't let it be picked up by another station...it definitely would have had a cult following similar to that of Buffy or Angel.
