Kolchak - the night stalker (70s) dvd question

My brother recently became a fan of the Kolchak series reruns on Sci Fi channel. I bought the 1974 series boxset, but I saw that there was a double feature from 1972 called the Night Stalker/Night Strangler. I just wanted to know if these are on the boxset, or should I buy him both so he can have the complete Kolchak cannon

The Night Stalker/Night Strangler double feature disc contains the original made for television movies that preceeded the series and are not included in the series set.

Definitely buy the single disc, double feature first. The events in Las Vegas (the very first movie) are referenced a few times in the series. Besides that, the "Night Stalker" was an outstanding television movie.

Get both. The TV movies on the double feature disc precede the events in the series and set the scene for it, and are also referenced a couple of times.

Watch the two movies and then the series.

They are both fine pieces of television.

And the reason why they're seperate is that Universal has the rights to the series & MGM has (had?) it for the made-for-TV movies.
