V – The Series (1985) – The Wildcats, and The Littlest Dragon

Julie (Faye Grant) and Kyle (Jeff Yagher) have their work cut out for them in the first episode this week, as the battle for Earth and its people continue with V – The Series. Written by David Braff, the episode first aired on 15 February, 1985. It seems a deadly epidemic has broken out, and…

I Was a Teenage Werewolf (1957) – Gene Fowler Jr.

Before he had a Little House on the Prarie, or traveled on the Highway to Heaven, Micheal Landon was a Teenage Werewolf, and I got to go on the prowl with him as I settled in for this 50s era classic, and the next recommendation from DK Canada’s Monsters in the Movies. Landon plays Tony,…

The Omega Man (1971) – Boris Sagal

This time, I sat down to watch the second cinematic interpretation of Richard Matheson’s classic tale, I Am Legend,…

Monster on the Campus (1958) – Jack Arnold

This one is, sadly, nowhere near as fun as Creature from the Black Lagoon, or The Incredible Shrinking…

The Island of Dr. Moreau (1996) – John Frankenheimer

The first episode up, Proof Through The Night, aired 11 February, 1984 and was written by Clyde Ware. Deborah Pratt’s recurring character, Marella is back, and we learn Archangel’s (Alex Cord) actual name, Michael Coldsmith-Briggs III. When a deep-cover agent…
