Recently the new Chiller channel has been running repeats of Kolchak: The Night Stalker it's from 1974 & stars Darren McGavin it was one of my first encounters with horror and it still retains it's original charm.
Carl Kolchak (McGavin) is a nosy reporter who always seems to stumble onto something supernatural. The cops are always irritated with him and frequently destroy his camera and/or film. In other words, he never gets that redeeming picture to prove he was telling the truth. His editor, Tony Vincenzo has chronic heartburn which is clearly caused by Carl. The characters are great and there are so many guest stars, a real chance to get a peek at some beauties like Kathy Lee Crosby & Richard Kiel in their younger days. Great stuff.
