  1. Cavemen movies rule. You are not alone

  2. Wife and I saw this on MeTV last week. It is a strangely produced episode that really deserved 1.5 hrs to pull off correctly. But it IS Kolchak - late night weird TV!! Great stuff. It's a shame that interviews with the writers and actors was t done years ago. Enjoy!
