Now that horror shows are all the rage, it's about time someone remakes Kolchak: The Night Stalker, ABC's darkly comedic monster mash starring the always reliable Darren McGavin. Unlike Charlie's Angels and Hawaii Five-O, Kolchak deserves a modern-day reboot. Looking a bit dated, no thanks to the cheap effects of times, the genre series has the perfect, easily digestible procedural concept: A wise-cracking newspaper reporter tracks down ghouls, goblins, and other creatures. Until the bigwigs in TV land wake up and revive Kolchak, here's your chance to play catch up.
