I’ve always been a big Star Trek fan. So it was natural for me to queue up the series on Netflix. Yes, I love the cheesiness and the stilted dialogue by Captain Kirk. But I LOVE Spock. He’s always been my favorite.

I used to write fan fiction about the TV series “Emergency”. I had such a huge crush on Johnny Gage, played by Randolph Mantooth. I wrote fan fiction differently than most people. I wrote MYSELF into the story so Johnny Gage was my love interest. Hey, I was about 13 years old. 🙂 So I watched an episode yesterday.

I watched Practical Magic yesterday, I can’t believe I had never seen this movie! I actually thought it was going to be kind of a comedy, but it definitely was not. I really, really liked it.

Now I come to a show I used to love and, after watching a couple of episodes, still do…Kolchak: The Night Stalker. If anyone thinks the paranormal is something new, they haven’t watched this show from the 70’s. The first episode was about Jack the Ripper, who was still alive after all these years. The second episode was about a zombie whose grandmother brought him back to take revenge on anyone involved in his murder. Kolchak is a bumbling reporter who gets into all kinds of trouble, and no one believes him when he tells them what’s happening. I can’t wait to watch the rest of the episodes.

I know most of you are younger than me, but has anyone seen these old 70’s shows (60’s AND 70’s in the case of Star Trek)? Have any of you ever even heard of Kolchak: The Night Stalker?
