In case no one noticed...
6 June 2006 | by dude-2See all my reviews

This episode is an homage to the second night stalker movie, "the night strangler" starring Richard Anderson as the killer and wally cox as the researcher who clues kolchak into the history of cases similar to the one he is working on now...

every so-many years - i think it was 21 in the original movie - a killer takes several young healthy (mostly women) victims and harvests their pituitary gland to use its legendary essence to prolong his life...

Stylish and nostalgic episode which makes me long for more of both the original series and this one.

As it is, i am nearing the end of the DVD set containing the entire new series and i am getting sad - they should have had a bit more patience before canceling it. Just like "firefly" the networks did not see mega ratings within minutes so they summarily dumped it for what probably were more lurid sex/violence and hipness (undoubtably aimed at that all important 20-something demographic).

Sad - but i CAN watch them again and maybe have a little Kolchak party someday - i now have all of the Kolchaks ever made and am quite delighted regardless of their untimely demises.
