Hey stranger!

I looked forward to it, but I was a little disappointed. I thought it could have used some more detail, fewer characters with more character development.

I think it has promise (I found myself thinking of Twin Peaks).

What did you think?

Hey Lady!!!!!

I really didn't see Twin Peaks, so I can't comment on the similarities. I like it so far. There's a lot to take in and they're not going to give it away up front. I like the casting and I also feel it's got lots of potential. Let's hope CBS doesn't screw this up like they did with American Gothic.

I've always liked S/F, Fantasy and supernatural stuff. Did you watch the recent ep?

Due to scheduling conflicts and the fact that I always forget CBS exists (can you blame me?), I missed the first two episodes, so I guess I'm out of luck. Come to think of it, CBS has a real problem on their hands. I heard about this show a while ago and thought ... hmm ... this might be pretty good ... I need to watch it when the Fall comes around. Then, as time got closer, I realized it was on CBS and thought ... hmm ... I guess I can miss this show ... I mean, come on, it's on CBS. As a fan of most things Viacom, I certainly have no problem with CBS, but it's definitely a psychological disadvantage working against them.

Anyway, you'll have to let us know if it stays good. My plate's pretty full right now, as I'm sure you can imagine , but if it's a keeper, I may hop on in the summer.

Prob(Wolf Lake last through November sweeps) = .10
Prob(Wolf Lake lasts through May | survies through November sweeps) = .30
Prob(Wolf Lake is renewed | making it through May) = 1 (be optimistic)

Prob (you'll be watching Wolf Lake this summer) = very small

Seriously, it lost audience from start to finish, its ratings are low, and its up against both L&O and NYPD Blue which hasn't even started yet. This show was DOA.

Granted it's up against two good shows, but I could care less about either of them. Been there, done that. The audience for Wolf Lake would more than likely be those who are into S/F rather than mainstream drama.

There's a good chance it may not make it, but for now, I'm happy to hang in there.

I've been looking forward to it as well, but have been disappointed with what I've seen so far. I will give it time to prove me wrong though...

Way to slow after the first two episodes.
I realize that character development, etc. takes time, especially in a series, but I'm afraid this won't be around long enough for true devlopment to take place.

Also, I'm having a hard time envisioning where the story lines can go. Granted we have the missing person angle and the ploce chief's daughter angle...but I can't see where else they can go.

I hope this picks up steam because it has potential Not every show is a hit right out of the box, and Lou Diamond isn't much of a draw. There is a good supporting cast - lots of cute girls, Tim Matheson, Sharon Lawrence (Sipowitz' wife) as a hot older broad but I'll watch it for Mia Kirshner. If you haven't seen her schoolgirl stripper act in Atom Egoyan's "Exotica" you are missing a treat as well as one of the best movies of the '90's.

I too think it is rather slow so far. I will still give it a chance though.

I'd put this show as a cross between Twin Peaks and The Kindred. It looks like it's going to take a couple more eps. to really take shape, but I'll be watching.

"But what if I don't want a siezure?"
