"The Night Stalker" Returns

It's no surprise that ABC, the last bastion of network horror, is the proud home of the rehashed "Night Stalker" series. But it remains to be seen what this new version could possibly have to say that wasn't covered the first time around. Those interested can find out beginning Sept. 29, according to the show's Web site.

No Darren McGavin. No Richard Matheson. No Dan Curtis. No hint of Robert Cobert's original score on the Web site. Seems like a lot of strikes to have against you right out of the gate. Why not just make something completely fresh?

Just once I'd like to see someone take a real risk at one of the television networks. Not as badly as I'd like to see companies like Google and Yahoo! stand up to the Chinese government on issues of censorship and excessive punishment. But it's right up there on my list.--Pete Mesling
