Grad student Eric Cord's roommate and best friend Ted gives Eric a gun with silver bullets and confesses that he is a werewolf, bitten while he was working on a boat owned by Captain Janos Skorzeney. A pentagram appears on his palm a few hours before he changes. The only way to end the curse is to kill the original werewolf in this bloodline. Eric ties Ted up but he changes, breaks free and bites Eric, who is forced to shoot him. Charged with murder, Eric jumps bail and begins searching for the werewolf who bit Ted, who turns out to be Skorzeney. Eric is pursued by "Alamo Joe" Rogan, a bounty hunter who saw Eric change and now uses silver bullets. Written by Anonymous

John J. York IS The WEREWOLF. The Best Werewolf tv series next to "Lucan"
21 September 2001 | by (Lancaster, California) – See all my reviews

"Werewolf" was one of the first tv series that the FOX channel aired in its early years when it was trying to prove to the FCC that it could become a new network, and eventually it did. John J. York plays a young man in search of his arch-enemy Skorzeny. He must find him because if he can get the blood from the head of the wolf line of the wolf that originally attacked him, a possible serum could be made to end his fits of rage that turn him into a werewolf. However, Skorzeny can sense the young man's presence before he can find him. When they do find one another, it could be a wolf fight to end all wolf fights. It could mean one of them will die and Skorzeny is the strongest and biggest of them all. To make matters worse for the young man, Eric, he has a bounty hunter by the name of Alamo Joe Rogan that is on his trail ready to shoot to kill.

John J. York plays Eric Cord and is perfect for the role. Chuck Connors is deliciously chilling and delightfully errie as Captain Janos Skorzeny, wearing a one-eye patch and speaking in a pirate-like voice. It is always a treat and a grand highlight when Chuck Connors guest stars. This is a well-developing werewolf story and each episode is a story of its own. The highlight of most episodes is when Eric turns into a werewolf and when he fights with another werewolf in other episodes. There are many surprises and twists in this series. You don't have to wait for the last episode to see a grand finale. The story attempts to make several turns. So you never want to miss not one episode. Another plus for the series is the heart-pulsing guitar rock music that they play. It sets the tone and mood of the show. During the first few episodes there contained male nudity mostly of John J. York which was necessary to the scenes, especially after he became a werewolf. Sometimes we would see him laying on the ground bare backside not knowing if he survived or died. The nude scenes were tastefully done. However when the series had ended and was repeated on the USA Network, the USA Network deleted the nude scenes and some gore along with too many commercial interruptions. Never since, The Fugitive (ABC,1963-67), The Incredible Hulk (CBS,1978-82) and Lucan (ABC, 1977-78) has there been a tv series with such continuing momentum and suspense. Oh, how I wish "Werewolf" (1987) was available on VHS video or DVD.
