Series / She-Wolf of London

She-Wolf of London, also known as Love and Curses, featured a young female werewolf and an older male professor of mythology. It was produced by Universal as part of their syndicated Hollywood Premiere Network, an attempt to create an ad-hoc TV "network" that got cancelled after the 1990-91 season (and in turn was the genesis of the Action Pack Universal created a couple years later).

This series provides examples of:

  • Artistic License Astronomy: "Don't worry, there won't be another full moon for months!"
  • Baleful Polymorph: An episode opened with three obnoxious fratboys being turned into carp.
  • Back from the Dead: Twice in the same episodes.
  • Circus Episode: In "Big Top She-Wolf", Randi feels strangely attracted to the Caleb Wakefield, the ringmaster of a rundown circus. The attraction deepens when she discovers that she does not metamorphose into a werewolf when she spends the night of a full moon with him. Randi learns that Caleb has a steep price for this 'gift' - all she has to do to be permanently rid herself of the curse is to sell her soul to the Devil.
  • Circus of Fear: One monster of the week was this.
  • Genre Shift: after the move to Los Angeles the show became much more comedic in tone.
  • Horny Devil: The Succubuses and another episodes features an aphrodisiac that turns people into monsters.
