Thank Goodness for ReRuns. This show aired from Jan 1972 - March 1975 and I lived in the boonies. If I hadn't been a baby, I still would have missed these. It was quite a boon when the SciFi Channel showed the episodes (well, most of the episodes). The recent news that this series is available on DVD is wonderful!
Kolchak: The Night Stalker is the story of Carl Kolchak, an investigative reporter for the Independent News Service in Chicago. Kolchak has a first-rate knack for seeking out the truth, no matter how unlikely it might be. More often than not, the truth proves to be positively bizarre: Vampires, Indian spirits, werewolves, vengeful Greek goddesses, robots, reptiles and even space aliens often turn out to be the culprits he uncovers.
