Series cast summary:
 Host / ... (37 episodes, 1977-1982)


Leonard Nimoy hosted this quasi-documentary television show which portrayed unusual natural phenomena and 'investigated' the paranormal. Its style of interspersing 'talking heads' with sensationalistic video segments may have been the forerunner of 'info-tainment.' Written by Tad Dibbern <>

Great show!
29 September 2004 | by (U.S.A.) – See all my reviews

In Search Of ... was a very good show. It was hosted by Leonard Nimoy of the great Star Trek saga. The show would investigate into big mysteries such as cryptids, alien life, unexplained phenomena such as ghosts, and other mysteries. This comment is for the episode In Search Of Bigfoot and Lost Children. The Bigfoot segment was very good. It goes through the basic information like what is a Sasquatch, where their located etc. It shows some experts saying their opinions and such. The most notable one is that one expert says that the Patterson Bigfoot is not a man in a suit and if it was he would have to be a huge person and a skilled one. In the segment of the Lost Children it shows how these children are left in the wild and have been adopted if you will by all kinds of animals and how their behavior is not like human behavior. I think these segments were very good and Nimoy's narration is very good! I am not sure in this series is still on television on A&E but if it is check it out because it was a good show!
