Tonight on Kolchak….
What happens when an oil company discovers new, undefined organic matter in the arctic circle?
Well, first off, they mishandle it and it ends up turning into a prehistoric, killer ape-man.
Secondly, it’s time for a corporate cover-up!
Fortunately, the world’s greatest (if unluckiest) journalist, Carl Kolchak, is on the case!
Anyway, this is an okay episode of Kolchak. If I don’t seem as enthused about it as I’ve been about some of the previous episodes, it’s because a killer, prehistoric ape-man just isn’t as much fun as a Cajun demon or a killer robot. Still, this episode has a nicely done, underground tunnel-set climax. Seriously, you can’t go wrong with an underground tunnel.
This episode originally aired on January 17th, 1975.
