The Night Stalker

Ever hear of The Night Stalker? I'm not talking about the serial killer in California, but the TV show from the 1970s.  I used to love this show.  Like most of the shows I liked back then, it didn't last long.  Reporter Karl Kolchak would ignore his assignments and go off after various paranormal  things that always seemed to be plaguing the good people of Chicago.  Anyway, in a conversation about Halloween costumes I got somebody interested in it, which is available on Netflix. 

There was an attempt to do a remake a few years back. It was unwatchable. Half of the charm was the relationship between Darren McGaven and Simon Oakland. The remake had none of that and flopped badly.
As we approach Halloween, do yourself a favor and download, rent or borrow this show.  Most people under 35 or so have never seen it. It's a real treat.
