    Padding and repetition-wise, Kolchak keeps on coming and going in the corporate building. At this stage, McGavin was doing McGavin to death. This is the companion piece to “The Energy Eater” in terms of cheapness and anemic script.

    The writers had the Greek mythology wrong or messy. Oddly enough, the script was penned by story editor Rudolph Borchert and polished by story consultant David Chase (uncredited). The episode feels rushed and cheap as the last three episodes. The series renewed itself from episode 6 by...
