It Was a Thing on TV Tripleheader: Episodes 208, 209 & 210 - Kolchak: The Night Stalker/Dead of Night/The David S. Pumpkins Halloween Special

Halloween may be over but we're giving you the leftover candy on this week's drop on It Was a Thing on TV.
 
First, we start with what might be considered the ultimate short-lived cult classic.  Kolchak: The Night Stalker has been remade several times, became a comic book series, and is a progenitor to similar later shows, but its original series only lasted a season.  With a celeb-laden line-up, what happened?
 
Next, our Halloween Trifecta of Terror continues with a one-off three-part anthology from 1977 titled Dead of Night.  Overall, it is pretty insignificant, though some big names were involved with it.  However, the first story does star one of our favorites, a young Ed Begley Jr.
 
Finally, we wrap up our Halloween trifecta of shows with some humor, straight from the minds at Saturday Night Live.  In 2016, David S. Pumpkins appeared on a Halloween sketch.  He proved to be so popular that he got his own half-hour special the following year.
 
ANY QUESTIONS?!?!

Into the Spidey Movieverse: Episode 7 - Venom (2018)

It's a new edition of Into the Spidey Movieverse as Greg and Chico are hitting the homestretch on the way to No Way Home.
 
This time the two look at 2018's "Venom" starring Tom Hardy as Eddie Brock. They look at how Sony could possibly make an origin story for Venom work without Spider-Man and shockingly succeed at doing it.
 
Among the things discussed include Eddie and Anne's relationship, the disgust at how we were lied to as kids as to how fun space would be, how far it is to get from East Malaysia to San Francisco and the joy of taking a bath in a lobster tank.
 
Next month we go animated as Greg and Chico go into the namesake of this podcast as they cover Into the Spiderverse.
