I recently checked out some old episodes of Kolchak: The Night Stalker, and I was amazed at how ahead of its time the series was. Kolchak was out hunting and researching werewolves, vampires, aliens, and all sorts of paranormal phenomena decades before it became thew hip thing to do. Shows like The X-Files and Supernatural certainly owe a debt to this trailblazer. Darren McGavin made an appearance on The X-Files as the man who actually initiated the X-Files Program, so it was nice to see them acknowledge their forerunner in that way.
