    I just finished watching the show. I am pretty much into everything about werewolves, so I was looking forward to this show. I was not disappointed. I was a little worried when I heard about the exec. producer being replaced and the pilot being reshot, but it sounds like they made the right decision. The only thing I would change about the show is all the slow motion walking and music, but those are minor complaints. I already like Graham Greene's character and am interested in what happens next. I say watch it while you can, because I see the show will go the way of American Gothic.

    Agree the show was interesting, maybe a little strange.
    It is in a tough spot if it stays Wednesdays at 10, up against Law and Order and NYPD Blue.
    I will also ditto the Graham Greene comments. I can not think of a role he has done where he did not shine.
    Nudity was surprising. Even the wife mentioned it.

    My wife and I were shocked to say the least. They clearly showed the woman's left breast, from a back/side angle in a sexy scene. I was actually flipping channels when I saw Lou Diamond and thought it was an HBO movie at first, then we saw the CBS logo and then the nudity. I didn't think the networks would allow this, I guess they are getting less strict on their nudity issues...
    As a note, I don't mean shocked above in a bad sense or that we were appalled or anything, just that we were very surprised to see it on network TV. I have absolutely nothing against women's breasts on TV [​IMG]

    It's funny you mention you saw the CBS logo. I've pretty much tuned out those logos, to the point where I don't even notice them, but for some reason on Wolf Lake, it stood out to the point of distraction. I don't watch any CBS shows so maybe it's that way all the time, but it seemed more opaque then other logos and it was very distracting (maybe because there were a lot dark scenes.)
    I thought the show was OK, not great, I'll give it one more try, but at this point I could leave it.

    Not only did I like but my wife liked it too. The only other genre show she really likes is Buffy and Night Visions.
    As far as the nudity goes, it started on NYPD Blue, I guess it's catching on, yeah.

    I enjoyed the new episode more than the pilot. I think it was more coherent and we got a better grasp of what was going on. I will continue to watch the show but I still don't like the music/slow-mo running shots. Nice to see that Tim Matheson got a bigger part in this episode since he wasn't in much of the first episode.

    Looks like this show might be cancelled fairly soon as the ratings have dropped quite a bit for the 2nd ep. Lets hope that this doesn't happen as this is a good show.

    The last episode was better than the first, and I agree that the musical bits are annoying. However I wonder if they revealed too much this episode? After all, if our policeman hero bumbles about in the dark for too long, I can see myself getting quite annoyed with him.

    Has this show been cancelled or something? A repeat of last week's Survivor:Africa was playing in its timeslot tonight.

    I think they just re-ran the "Survivor" premiere for people that missed it last week when it was delayed by the President's news conference...
