Character driven episode.

Werewolf: A World of Difference (take note IMDb there is no 'Part 1' during the opening credits) is set in a small town where Los Angeles bounty hunter Alamo Joe Rogan (Lance LeGault) learns that his bail jumping bounty Eric Cord (John J. York) has been arrested on minor charges & is stuck in the local jail. Rogan thinks that the hunt is now finally over & that he can take Eric back with him & end all the bloodshed that seems to follow Eric around, however things aren't that simple as while Rogan argues with the town's Sheriff Eric transforms into a Werewolf & breaks out of jail. Rogan follows him & seemingly shoots Eric dead but not before Rogan is injured himself, as Eric's dead body lies in the county morgue Rogan faces the prospect of being infected with the Werewolf curse...

Episode eleven from the first & only season of Werewolf this originally aired in the US during October 1987, directed by James Darren this is the start to a two part story that belongs as part of the wider Werewolf story & not as a stand alone episode. A World of Difference is the sort of episode designed to flesh out the character's & give the whole Werewolf story that flows through the whole series a bit more depth, in that respect A World of Difference will probably only appeal to those who have followed the series so far & know about the character's involved & their motivations. This would not be a good first episode to see. After episodes that have revolved around both Eric & Skorzeny here it's the turn of bounty hunter Alamo Joe Rogan to get a storyline of his own, the episode is open ended in the sense that there's a lot of unanswered questions so if you do watch it make sure you have access to the second part. There's a decent double cliffhanger ending to this one with Eric seemingly dead in the morgue & Rogan himself having maybe been bitten might be a Werewolf himself, the thing that he hated & wanted to destroy in the first place.

The majority of the episode consists of flashbacks as Rogan 'remembers' some of the events that he has gone through while chasing Eric including finding out how to kill a Werewolf & making silver bullets from a silver crucifix. There's a decent dialogue scene between Eric & Rogan in jail that is well written & acted as they each spell out their reasoning behind what they are doing & try to make the other understand but as a whole this is a fairly forgettable episode without any Werewolf action of note. I suppose if you like the Alamo Joe Rogan character then you will like this episode since it's based around him but I prefer the Werewolf character's.

A World of Difference is an average Werewolf episode, I can see what it was trying to do in fleshing out one of the main character's so the series as a whole benefits but you really need to be a fan of the show or have at least seen some of the earlier episodes to fully know what's going on & get the most out of it.
