Question: I don't know about you, but after watching the premiere of Night Stalker, I really miss Darren McGavin and Simon Oakland (not to mention Carol Lynley). The cast of the updated show is just so blah thus far. Stuart Townsend is miscast. (Bruce Campbell would have been a much better choice.)
Answer: "Blah" pretty much sums up my feelings about this unnecessary remake, which would be the low man on this season's sci-fi/horror totem pole if not for the unwatchable Surface. And you are so right that Bruce Campbell would have made a perfect Kolchak: appropriate in age, demeanor and, most important, humor.
