    Kolchak: The Night Stalker--influential TV horror

    Despite the writing and production values sometimes being seriously sub-par (it was the 70s), Kolchak: The Night Stalker inspired shows like The X-Files and many other modern television sci-fi/horror shows. Darren McGavin is Carl Kolchak, a reporter who finds himself encountering the supernatural in every episode. He faces every terrifying challenge with wry humor and a healthy dose of cynicism. There are a host of cool 70s guest stars as well.

    Great show for its time.

    The series would probably not be suitable for younger viewers, as I don't believe they would be able to associate with the era of when this show was produced. Simply put, the picture and sound quality do reflect the technology which was available during the seventies. But, I would certainly recommend this disc-set for someone who is older, and who enjoys watching horror/mystery stories. Personally, I loved watching the series as a kid, and I enjoy viewing it now.

    This is one of the best boxed sets out there Darren Mcgavin is incredible as Kolchak, the stories are fun and you cant beat the interaction between the cast, this is one boxed set that is worth 50$ all 20 episodes cant beat it, so for 34 dollars pick it up, you will not regret it...

    I never missed this show when I was a kid and as an adult still enjoy it. It's goofy, some of it scary and some of the special effects (considering it was made in the 70s) are hysterical. Added bonus is no foul language, bare rear ends and other garbage producers seem to think we need these days to be entertained.

    A fun, campy tv show with a fun story line and interesting actors. Some scenes are a bit dark but overall very watchable. Sort of an early x-files type of theme with every scary creature that ever lived under your bed. Enjoy!

    The movie The Night Stalker made be the best made for tv horror film ever. The series tries to capture the same vibe and for the most part it does. Darrin Mcgavin is great.

    One of my favorite tv series of all time. Most of the time the creatures were more comical than scary, but I thoroughly enjoyed Darrin McGavin as Kolchak. Excellent performance every episode!

    Had to pick this up when I saw it. I loved this series when it ran on network TV and still enjoy the shows. If you liked him in A Christmas Story, you like him in these shows.

    You will love this series. Unlike the set that came out in the early 2000's these are single sided discs. Lots of exciting episode will keep you on the edge of your seats.

    I grew up watching this show. Even though the special effects were kind of cheesy it still was and still is a good TV show. They don't make them like this anymore!

    My dad introduced me to this series, and I've been a fan ever since. It's cool to have the entire series on DVD to watch whenever we want.
