| Lucan is great
I'm a sucker for fugitive shows and this was terrific. It was a cross between the classic "The Fugitive" TV series and The Incredible Hulk. (Two of the best of the genre.) I loved that Lucan had animal/wolf like abilities and how his eyes glowed red-gold when he used them. He didn't quite have "super powers." And of course he's a true hero you can relate to - a sweet, easy-going and ruggedly handsome young man on a quest to find his real parents. Along the way he helps people.

Kevin Brophy was perfectly cast! Why he wasn't utilized more in Hollywood I simply don't know. He played Lucan with great earnestness and you truly believed in the character and wanted him to find his family.

This show should've lasted longer. It was smart and well-acted with a fascinating concept based on a true case of a wolf-boy in the woods.
