Whatever it takes, I'm all for it. Love this show. I'll admit it tried with varying degrees of success for that mix of horror/humor that KOLCHAK: THE NIGHT STALKER had before it and BUFFY THE VAMPIRE SLAYER would perfect after it until they just went for the humor with the last few episodes. I didn't much care for the move to Los Angeles and fully embracing the lighter tone but even those episodes provided one of my favorites of the entire series. I still want to see a "Bride of the Wolfman" movie, darn it!
Anyway, Kate Hodge was adorable as werewolf Randi and the chemistry with Neil Dickson as Ian - must've been a school mate of Rupert Giles, I swear - as the would-be lovers (seems like getting frisky with Randi causes the wolf to come out - which really inspires Ian to help find the cure and I don't blame him!) was spot on. The look and atmosphere of the London based episodes push this series above the other syndicated genre shows of the time such as FREDDY'S NIGHTMARES, TALES OF THE DARKSIDE, MONSTERS and the like. And it's about a werewolf! What else do you need?
Even if you're not a voracious werewolf fan such as I, there's lots to like in this series. This release makes the pain of losing the WEREWOLF TV series DVD set bearable.
It's such a shame Universal didn't include the original opening for the first 14 episodes. I am sure it was completely accidental. So many studios really don't know their material as well as the fans do. That's why Studios really should contact a fan website every now and then and get some input or let them preview the check-discs...but they are probably afraid of confidential information being leaked. So mistakes like this happen. The original theme and opening are so great too....So much better than the "Love and Curses" theme and opening. I guess I'll have to dig my Sci-Fi channel recorded VHS' out of storage and transfer the opening.
Thanks anyway Universal for releasing this great show! I really do appreciate it! Next time though, do a little more research, please.
BTW, UNIVERSAL, Can we please have the final seasons of "Amazing Stories" (Season 2), "SeaQuest 2032," and Sliders (Season 5). It seems such a shame to release every season except the last! You've come so close!
I distinctly remember the theme to be very sensuous, with a mysterious undertone. That tied in beautifully with the concept of the "She-Wolf". Instead of the dvd producers maintaining that line of thought, they opted to throw in an opening theme which was so irritating that it almost made me gag. Thankfully, the contents of the episodes included little scenes that were edited by either WWOR or Sci-Fi.
Also, I found a glitch in the video transfer. In the 'Little Bookshop of Horrors(?)', there is a video warp at the very beginning of the episode.[Maybe someone fell asleep at the editing table]. Come on guys! You want this sale to take off(especially in the advent of the 'Wolf-man' movie release to be coming to theaters soon), you have to pay attention!

If you go into this series reminding yourself that it's sort of a tribute to old Universal Studios monster films, it's watchable. Read morePublished 9 months ago by Lester Smith
