Kodiak
14 November 2008 | by rcj5365See all my reviews

The reason why the short-lived series "Kodiak" has a place in television history and one of the forgotten cop shows of the 1970's?

For one,this series replaced "The Brady Bunch" which was a huge ratings winner for the five astounding seasons that it ran on ABC. And to think that network executives at ABC thought that "Kodiak" would out do "The Brady Bunch"? However,it was the opposite.

"Kodiak" produced four episodes(and also an unknown episode that was never telecast)and it ran on ABC-TV from September 13,1974 until its demise on October 4,1974. The series was produced by Stanley Shpetner for Warner Bors. Television. "Kodiak" was filmed on location in Alaska. For one,the series was on Friday nights at the 8:00 hour(where they put this on the same time slot where "The Brady Bunch" used to be),and it was clobbered in the ratings opposite CBS' short-lived action-adventure science fiction series "The Planet of the Apes",and opposite the NBC powerhouse comedies of "Sanford and Son",and "Chico and the Man",which were Number One in their timeslots.

"Kodiak" ran a half-hour and the series stars Clint Walker(Cheyenne)as Alaska State Patrolmen Cal "Kodiak" McKay who was responsible for 50,000 square miles of rugged country for all the criminals,avalanche victims,miners and con-artists he had to contend with therein the Alaskan wilderness. Basically he does get his man in every episode,and in the process rescues people in great danger with his assistant Abraham(Abner Biberman). Only four episodes were produced of this series,which I can say about some shows that don't even stay on the air more than less these days. Some of the episodes were in order:"Red Snow,White Death"(telecast 9-13-74,special guest star Stefanie Powers), "Death Chase"(telecast 9-20-74,special guest star Kay Lenz),"A Time To Die"(telecast 9-27-74,special guest star Steve Forrest),and the final episode of the series "The Last Enemy"(telecast 10-4-74,special guest star William Shatner). The unknown episode that was never telecast was titled "Lesson In Terror". After this series,it to know the reason why Clint Walker went into retirement after this.
