Kolchak: The Night Stalker - episode 5 (They Have Been, They Are, They Will Be...)
release year: 1974
genre: TV horror/suspense
viewing setting: home DVD, 10/29/05
what Kolchak faces in this episode: An invisible, energy-wielding, electronics-stealing, bone-marrow-eating alien from elsewhere.
impressions: I was getting annoyed with this one until the very end, when Kolchak's musings kind of summarized the episode's events in one sentence and really put it all together for me. Lots of sci-fi here: invisible foe, telekinesis, things vanishing into thin air, even a UFO. It's a little slow at times, but when it was over, I realized that it was actually a good episode.
