One of the greatest reporters of all time could hardly publish a word. He's KOLCHAK: THE NIGHT STALKER, he's played by Darren McGavin, and every week he uncovers another supernatural or sci-fi monster, and every week the evidence vanishes or the government shuts him down.
If that sounds familiar, it's because KOLCHAK: THE NIGHT STALKER was one of the biggest influences on THE X-FILES. But it only lasted one season! Was it CANCELED TOO SOON?
Film critics William Bibbiani explore the iconic failed television series episode by episode, monster by monster, to discover what works, what sucks, and why KOLCHAK desperately needs a reboot.
