Re: Kolchak: The Night Stalker (original)...

"The Sentry" **

A reptilian creature is loose in the tunnels of a data storage facility.

This was a genuine disappointment where it felt like the players were just going through the motions, the characters were cliches and the monster was just cheesy without any quirky charm or cleverness. The aborted series, which otherwise was quite good in general ends on a whimper with this half-hearted effort.


Overall this was a good show with cleverness, charm and wit. But it went unappreciated in its time. It was fun, but towards the end it felt like it was getting stuck in some cliches and formula.

I have to wonder if it would have been better served as a series of made-for-TV movies where each story could have been given more care and each episode spaced out about every month to month-and-a-half, like Columbo and some other TV movie series.
