The beginning of the end?

Werewolf: To Dream of Wolves: Part 1 starts as Werewolf Eric Cord (John J. York) drifts into New Orleans in order to follow up a lead on Skorzeny, there he meets photographer Diane Bathory (Kim Ulrich) who once approached Skorzeny to model for her. Diane tells Eric that while she doesn't know where Skorzeny is but Nicholas Remy (Brian Thompson) a Professor might. At Remy's house Eric comes face to face with the 200 year old Skorzeny as a Werewolf & is knocked unconscious while Skorzeny kidnaps Diane. Eric tracks Skorzeny down to the local docks & after an epic battle Eric finally kills him but much to his disappointment he is still afflicted with the Werewolf curse which means that Skorzeny wasn't the originator of the Werewolf bloodline & Eric has no idea where to start looking for it or who it might be...

Episode twenty five from the one & only season of Werewolf this originally aired in the US during February 1988, the first part of a two part story To Dream of Wolves was directed by James Darren the whole series so far has been building up to this point as Eric finally comes face to face with Skorzeny & kills him in order to destroy the bloodline & this end his Werewolf curse. Of course things aren't that simple & the main plot twist of To Dream of Wolves is that Skorzeny isn't the originator of the Werewolf bloodline at all & Eric's search has to start all over again from scratch which presumably the makers intended to use to keep the series going although ironically after the To Dream of Wolves double header the show only ran for another three episodes before it got canned. To be fair not much actually happens in this episode, Eric runs around a bit trying to find Skorzeny & then at the end has a fight with him Werewolf to Werewolf before killing him although I have to admit there's a pretty good twist ending I didn't see coming even though I probably should have. Also, what the hell was that mime artist who constantly kept popping up all about?

There's some good Werewolf action as usual with better than expected special effects which are fairly impressive even now & in my opinion would beat most low budget CGI computer animated stuff. Being a TV show this was never going to be the goriest but there's an impaling at the end & a good send off for Skorzeny. The character of Janos Skorzeny was named after the Vampire in the made-for-telly horror flick The Night Stalker (1972), oddly Janos Skorzeny was originally played by actor Chuck Connors up to & including the ninth episode Friendly Haven (1987) while all of the character's subsequent appearances were either in complete Werewolf form or by use of a body double & even now it's unclear why Connors left the show even though the makers still had a big role for his character. Apparently Skorzeny was given some dialogue in the original script for To Dream of Wolves but when Connors again refused to reprise the role it was all cut & a body double was used as well as archive footage previously shot for which actor Chuck Connors sued Fox & the makers of the show & actually won.

To Dream of Wolves: Part 1 is a decent enough episode from a series that I have actually really liked although this does have one of the more poorer story lines from the show where not a whole lot happens, maybe Part 2 will bring it all into focus a little more & give a bit more meaning to Part 1.
