If you’re a regular reader of Cheese Magnet, you know we’re big fans of the old CBS Late Movie. As a kid, that’s where I saw a lot of the crazy horror movies that shaped my existence, and of course they also aired some cool TV shows. That’s where I discovered The New Avengers, for instance:
At the time, I had never seen any of the original Avengers episodes so Purdey (Joanna Lumley) was my introduction to John Steed’s vast array of sexy sidekicks. Plus, Caroline Munro was on an episode, and if you read this post you know I was a big fan of hers.
Now, I had been a regular viewer of Kolchak: The Night Stalker when it originally aired but somehow it was even spookier on the CBS Late Movie. The intro for the show is still creepy today:
I’m currently re-watching season one of The X-Files and it’s amazing to see what an influence Kolchak was on Chris Carter.
And I’d be remiss if I didn’t post another CBS Late Movie intro. What were some of your favorites?
