The Prime of Darren McGavin


ABC's Night Stalker has apparently been axed. I tried watching it, but there was really wasn't much to recommend it. Off work today and, as it would happen, Sci-Fi is running a Kolchak: The Night Stalker marathon. It's very 70s, that's for sure. The first episode I caught featured the least convincing werewolf I've seen this side of Rolf the Dog after a rough night banging out tunes at a roadhouse. Still, they're mildly entertaining, enough so that I've sat through the wererolf, a zombie, a smarmy satanic Senator, an Indian Spirit jewel thief played by none other than Richard "Jaws" Kiel, a vampire cornier than Count Chocula, and now super strong Jack the Ripper. Not sure if my continued viewing is more a comment on how watchable the show is or a condemnation of the rest of daytime TV.
