Canceled Too Soon #169 | Night Stalker (2005)

"Kolchak: The Night Stalker" is one of the most important and influential "Canceled Too Soon" shows in TV history. But what about the reboot, NIGHT STALKER, from "X-Files" producer Frank Spotnitz, starring Stuart Townsend and Gabrielle Union? Was it a worthy follow-up to a cult TV classic, or a generic early-2000s supernatural detective series with a catastrophically miscast star?

You'll have to listen to CANCELED TOO SOON to find out! Film critics William Bibbiani and Witney Seibold dig up NIGHT STALKER to see how it stacks up to the original, how it stacks up to "The X-Files," and why all the show's problems probably could have been solved with a $20 trip to an outlet store.

Give it a listen!
