Well, Peter, John, and Mark are a tough act to follow (man, we sound like a bunch of Apostles around here, don’t we?), and it’s always a little daunting revisiting a subject you’ve written about so many times before, but after a hearty round of back-slappin’ and log-rollin’ with Mark, my Spotlight on Matheson’s original Night Stalker TV-movie is up at It Couldn’t Happen Here… Coincidentally, and for only a few more hours, I’ll be the featured contributor both there and at Marvel University, and as usual, they’ve done a fine job matching my words with visuals. It’s nice to have that vintage ABC ad to remind us that when the series started, it was called simply The Night Stalker, without the Kolchak appended to the title since, I believe, the fourth episode.
Speaking of reminders, I needn’t post one to tell you to look for my Spotlight on the sequel, The Night Strangler, tomorrow evening, need I? ’Cause I will if I have to.
