Another average episode.

Werewolf: Big Daddy starts as Eric (John J. York) arrives at a small Louisiana town called Lanier Parish where he is arrested by local Sheriff Bobby LeCroy (Brian Libby) & taken to the mansion of ex-state Governor Will Fraser (Howard Duff) also known as 'Big Daddy'. Big Daddy tells Eric that he is dying of cancer & needs Eric to pass on his Lycanthropy to him so he can live forever. Eric isn't keen on the idea but Big Daddy has ways of getting what he wants by whatever means necessary...

Episode nineteen from the one & only season of Werewolf this originally aired in the US during November 1987, directed by Larry Shaw one has to say that Big Daddy is another pretty average episode just like the previous three or four although it's still watchable & fans of the show should still like it. The show has settled down into a regular pattern with each story revolving around the same sort of plot where Eric drifts into some town or job & meets some people, one usually good & one usually evil & finds himself in some sort of situation which he uses his unique Werewolf changing abilities to solve some problem or other usually in favour of the good character & Big Daddy follows that premise pretty closely with the nasty Big Daddy wanting to prolong his life by becoming a Werewolf & his good natured abused daughter Emily who he treats like dirt & has become his personal slave (the fact that she is black has shades of racism) coming out on top. The one aspect of Big Daddy that makes it watchable is the twist ending, while it won't knock your socks off it's suitably unpredictable & a fairly satisfying way to round the episode off.

There are a couple of Werewolf scenes in Big Daddy but nothing spectacular, there's no blood or gore worth mentioning either. Neither regular character's Skorzeny or bounty hunter Rogan appear in this episode. The whole episode takes place in a big Louisiana plantation mansion which looks nice enough & the episode is nicely lit as usual but the story really isn't up to much & won't live that long in the memory.

Big Daddy is an average Werewolf episode, it follows the same sort of pattern a lot of episode from this series have & there's just not much here to get excited about. One for the fans of the show.
