    I've heard it was of the first Fox shows. It sounds pretty cool. If it ever comes out i'd pick it up and add it to my blind buy list that also includes other short lived shows Profit & American Gothic.

    It was one of the first shows on Fox. If I remember right, it came on Saturday nights. I enjoyed it and would buy it.

    Count me in as another who would pick Werewolf up in a second if it were available on DVD. Chuck Connors as Skorzeny made a great villian.


    Funny....I recall it being on Friday nights when it originally played. It was so long ago, I can't be sure anymore. Sadly, I haven't seen this show on TV since it's first run. [​IMG]

    This is one of my top 10 most wanted series! I would love to see this show released! But unfortunately I am starting to loose hope that we will ever see it come out.[​IMG]

    Obviously... I would buy it in a second if it was tro come out.

    That's the one! The BEANS/WEREWOLF double bill was a blast!

    I imagine that when the swamp's been drained, WEREWOLF is a title FOX will release. There's only about 20+ episodes, and at 30 minutes each, they could easilly put this out as a 2 disc set.

    Music will be a problem - there's are several "big" 80s songs in each episode. In fact, in the opening minutes of the pilot there is what seems to be an extended music video for "The Future's So Bright (I Gotta Wear Shades)".

    But I'd snap this up in a second. And BEANS too!

    Hell yes, I would be all over this series. I've got Kindred so now I just need Werewolf to fill out the set. 2 shows I enjoyed that were prematurely cancelled.

    Well TV on DVD is a really big seller these days. It's entirely possible that we might find Werewolf available someday. Beans Baxter would be cool too! [​IMG] By the way, did any one else have to watch Werewolf covertly due to parents being freaked out by horror shows?

    I've heard recently that this show is tied up in so much red tape that it can't even be shown on tv let alone DVD, Gord could you possibly find more info on this from Sony even if the show can't come to DVD i'd like to know the specifics of what's going on here.

    I'd so love to see this show, so a DVD would be perfect.

    They've received a number of requests for the show, but they looked into it and it was the same people calling and emailing over and over. I don't think they believe there's the demand for the show. I know they've looked into it.

    Thanks Gord thats too bad though. Looking at the number on your site it said something like 700 or so that's pretty good. It seems there are people who would want it. It seems like such a cool show and i'd love to see it. Do you think they could release it to go along with that werewolf movie Cursed or the upcoming Marvel movie Werewolf By Night? That would be a good cross promotion i'd think.

    There's a really good fansite by the way and it's amazing

    They should release a small production run of this show and others that they think has "not much demand". There's lots of other shows that are on DVD right now that I'm sure aren't burning up the sales charts. Every show has some audience.

    Even though this isn't news I thought it was kinda cool that it got mentioned in this article so I thought i'd chime in again. It's too bad it was the same people they might have had a chance getting it out if it had a bigger request. The small blurb is at the last paragraph of the page

    Not only that, but the pilot episode also features the song "Silent Running" from Mike + The Mechanics prominently. I wouldn't buy this if those two songs are not kept intact.

    Hey guys I wanted to bring this up. Lonewolf the webmaster of www.werewolftv.com has started a petition to Sony to get Werewolf broadcast on the Horror Channel, and hopefully if Sony see's how many people want this they might release it on DVD.

    Here's the link to the petition.

    I hate to say this, but this show is in Sony's shitlist because the same fans kept emailing and mailing. They looked into it and realized it was the same people over and over, so they feel there's a lot less demand out there than what's represented in the emails and letters.

    I was talking to Lonewolf the other day about this and he told me to pass this on.

    "Gord may be right and that Sony has turned a blind eye to Werewolf,
    but that was a while ago when those idiots did that to them. This
    is the present and WE should not be punished for other people's
    ignorance. The petition I have going now is legitimate and has
    legitimate signatures. And besides, it will be The Horror Channel
    that approaches Sony and not an individual (a fan). Sony MUST
    listen and realize that WE are serious and there are enough of us to
    back this project. We currently have 100 signatures but there is
    still a long way to go before I can hand it over to The Horror
    Channel. We need to show Sony that it is not just a handful of us
    signing the petition over and over. The petition board I have setup
    will NOT allow the same person to post more than once anyway. We
    need more real people to stop by and show their support! Tell
    everyone you know!"

    I think he's quite sincere about this being legitimate and very hopeful to help Horror Channel show Sony there are more then a few people interested. I really hope this goes well.

    That's good news, but they need a lot more than 100 signatures to get Sony's attention.

    Anyway, I'll let you know if anything more develops.
