Treatment 48 – Kolchak: The Night Stalker

It’s our long awaited super-secret episode, featuring our first ever coverage of a TV show!

Kolchak: The Night Stalker

We’ve been wanting to cover this show for some time, because it’s a fun, classic horror show that often crosses the line into schlock. TV budgets, and a steady stream of cameos make this show perfect fodder for our show. And what better time to discuss it than Schlocktober?! It stars Darren McGavin in the title role, who is absolutely charming. We picked two episodes to focus on for the show: The Werewolf (Episode 5) and Chopper (Episode 15). Both feature laughably conceived monsters.

THRILL… as we discuss vampires in denial about their vampirism!!!

CRINGE… as Matt and Marc get into yet another argument over a totally trivial point!!!

EMPATHIZE WITH MARC… as Doug and Kirk manage to express skepticism about plot points without Matt challenging them on every little point!!!

You can find Kolchak: The Night Stalker (the full series) on Netflix to watch instantly. You can also find it on Amazon for rental, and on DVD. Look for them in our store, if you’re interested. Then be sure to go to iTunes and subscribe to the podcast to join the fun!

Next Week: We end Schlocktober and celebrate Halloween with the winner of our listener poll, Night of the Comet!!
