5.0 out of 5 stars A very good series, but avoid the "unaired pilot", January 4, 2013
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Wolf Lake: The Complete Series (DVD)
This was a really good show but I can see why it didn't make it on network TV because genre shows seldom ever make it on network TV. Had it been on cable it would probably still be going.

Regarding this DVD set, when you pop in the first disc you'll get the option to "play all" or go to specific episodes. Go to the specific episodes and start with episode one. If you select "play all" the series starts with the unaired pilot, which was a different show than what ended up being broadcast. All the characters were different, their motivations were different, the only thing that was the same was that it took place at Wolf Lake and involved werewolves -- and nothing warns you about this! So I was totally confused until I looked it up on Wikipedia and saw that there was an unaired pilot with a different storyline. The pilot is good, but watch all the episodes first and then go back and watch the pilot.

By 'characters were different' this reviewer is referring to the characters in the film. Many of the same actors who were in the subsequent series were also in the pilot. That being said, I agree with the review, it was a little frustrating to watch the pilot, start to get into that storyline, and then, instead of a continuation, get thrown into a different plot (and somewhat different environment). I also agree . . . watch the pilot last, mostly as a reference, and to get a glimpse of a potentially intriguing and different werewolf based series.
