Have You Ever Heard of Wolf Lake?

Well, if you haven’t, it’s a werewolf show that came out a few years ago – a very short-lived werewolf show. I hadn’t thought about Wolf Lake in a while, I actually forgot about it completely, until it came out up my Amazon recommendations. Turns out the show just came out on DVD a few weeks back, all 10 episodes of it. Check out the show and DVD details below.

Description:

Seattle police detective John Kanin (Lou Diamond Phillips) finds his world turned upside down when his girlfriend Ruby (Mia Kirshner) mysteriously disappears one night after leaving his apartment. After months of searching, an anonymous tip leads Kanin back to Ruby’s hometown Wolf Lake, a place where the residents are hiding a dark secret… they’re all werewolves.

Episodes:

1. Meat the Parents
2. The Changing
3. Soup to Nuts
4. Tastes Like Chicken
5. Excitable Boy
6. Four Feet Under
7. Leader of the Pack
8. Legend of Lost Lenore
9. Unaired Pilot
10.If These Wolves Could Talk

Special Features:

  • Episode with audio commentary by series creator/executive producer John Leekley and director Rupert Wainwright.
  • Wolf Lake: The Original Werewolf Saga Documentary

Starring Lou Diamond Phillips (“Longmire,” La Bamba), Mia Kirshner (Exotica, “Defiance”), Paul Wesley (“The Vampire Diaries”), Mary Elizabeth Winstead (Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Killer, The Thing) and Graham Greene (Twilight: New Moon, The Green Mile).

The DVD is only $20 on Amazon, so it may be worth a buy. Have any of you seen this show? If so, what did you think?

I have actually never seen a single episode, so feel free to fill me in.

I’ve heard of it, but never seen an episode either, because it was cancelled.

I hate it when they cancel great TV shows, only to air the retarded reality ones. (Biggest Loser immediately comes to mind.)

I heard of it and seen some episodes but a big thing that killed it is the networks kept moving the broadcast time so it was hard to follow before they canned it. I don’t remember much from it though occasionally. APTN has reaired it.

Wolf Lake was an excellent show… Sort-of “Twin Peaks” meets “Teen Wolf”. It’s a shame it took more than a decade to be released on DVD. The show suffered from seriously unfortunate timing – It was originally scheduled to premiere the day after 9/11 2001. The ensuing weeks of 24/7 news coverage and national distraction killed the show after barely a month. The final 4 episodes didn’t even air until 6 or 7 months later on a different network. Such a wasted opportunity. ABSOLUTELY worth seeing… Also, and early starring role for Paul Wasilewski (Wesley) of Vampire Diaries fame.

Shame they never aired the last episode. Looks like it’s not on here, either. You can easily tell this series ended long before it was intended to just from the last 6 minutes of “If These Wolves Could Talk”: Sheriff’s daughter comes home sporting glowing golden eyes and asking him to help her, Ruby as a white wolf fleeing into the woods from a cage belonging to the bad-guy wolf who had been holding her under the threat of killing her husband if she didn’t stay with him, John clearly determined to find Ruby (his wife) and figure out what was going on in that town. At least we get the pilot ep…I guess.
