    Tuned into the current episode of Mayberry RFD on the Decades binge to find the cast camping and fishing on Miramanee's lake/village location.

    Airwolf! The pilot movie. The CIA attack helicopter demo ground looks suspiciously like several alien planets.

    We caught John Fiedler (Mr. Hengist - Jack the Ripper) on The Munsters last night as the postman "Tiger" who ran afowl of a love potion.

    Finally got around to watching the episode of 'The Starlost' with Walter Koeing in it as the alien Oro.

    I will admit that there's a gem of a good idea in the premise of the series, it's just that the ideas out stretch the budget and the acting (if there ever was a definition of 'dull surprise' Keir Dullea would be it); and that it maybe desperation on the part of the producers that they're introducing an alien only 7 episodes into the series (played by a Star Trek alumni) in order to boost the ratings.

    Not necessarily. Logan's Run, the TV adaptation of a movie about escapees from a dystopian post-apocalyptic regime, did its first alien invasion of the season in its second episode.

    Anyway, a series' episodes are usually produced at least a couple of months in advance of release date; for instance, the seventh-aired episode of Star Trek, "What Are Little Girls Made Of?," was filmed a month before the show premiered. So it's likely that The Starlost episode 7 was also written and filmed before the series premiered, and thus could not have been affected by ratings.

    Katherine Woodville thinks Kolchak is crazy in the Night Stalker episode "Primal Scream."
    This is one of those "something ancient and deadly thawed out of arctic ice" stories.

    Non-Trek notables were Jamie Farr as an anthropology teacher, Pat Harrington as a sleazy PR guy, and the always wonderful Barbara Rhodes, because when you needed a very tall, beautiful, sexy redhead in a 70s TV show, you called Barbara.

    That reminds me - Kolchak the complete series is coming to Blu-ray; remastered from the original negatives. It includes both made for tv movies as well as commentary for all episodes.

    Oh yes, Kolchak was one of the major inspirations for X-Files, freely admitted by Chris Carter.

    Just caught this one and came in to check. And I, too, was taken aback by the late, out-of-the-blue appearance of her character.
