Kolchak: The Night Stalker - The Complete Series @ Amazon £12.48

Found 6th Jan 2010
The cult television series that inspired The X-Files, Kolchak: The Night Stalker was not nearly as successful as that later show yet still maintains an influence. The show, which ran in 1972, follows the creepy adventures of Carl Kolchak, a scruffy, cynical reporter played by Darren McGavin. When Kolchak finds that the murderer responsible for a series of bloody murders plaguing his home city of Las Vegas is a member of the undead, a vampire out for food, he undertakes a quest to defeat the bloodsucking fiend. Gritty, dark, and dramatic, Kolchak was described by many critics as too scary for television!

saw the newer version with Stuart Townsend, which I think was axed before the end as usual, haven't seen that version though.

One of the best TV shows from the 70's, Classic stuff, HOT

A B S O L U T E L Y -- W I C K E D -- S E R I E S .

This is one of my all time TV favourites ever - full stop.

Now, imagine The X-Files in a 70's throwback, but instead of Mulder and Scully, we have Kolchak who is a tenacious investigative reporter determined to prove the existence of all sorts of weirdness that comes his way including Vampires, Werewolves etc.

Brilliant stuff = H+R OP - nice one.
