I don't know about you, but for me, this is the show to see this fall. Lost is fine, and Invasion looks interesting, but for sheer built-in curiosity value, you can't beat Carl Kolchak investigating those dark things that go "Arrrrrggh!" in the night. If you've never seen the original movie, well...consider yourself a deprived child. It was great. The sequel was nearly as good. The TV series suffered a bit, yet it had its own charms...one of which was that it inspired Chris Carter to create The X Files. And now the wheel's come 'round again. I just hope they do it justice. I must say I'm really confused as to what to expect. On the one hand, the producer is ex-Files producer Frank Spotnitz. On the other: Carl Kolchak is indelibly etched in my mind as a single, rather plain, middle-aged loner. Here, he's a good-looking widower with an attractive partner. His origin has been changed from someone who was involved in an infamous vampire case to someone whose wife was murdered by some unidentified ghoulie. Instead of just being a social outcast, he's now hounded by the police who suspect him of his wife's murder.Now, I understand that everything goes through the "reinvention" process...but some of these things give me pause. Kolchak's fans know him very well, and making over Kolchak in this way is not unlike reinventing Charlie Brown as a teenager with a girlfriend. I badly want this show to work, because I love the original idea of Kolchak. I just hope they don't stray so far from it that you don't recognize him at all. We'll find out tomorrow night, won't we?
