Quotes

[at the beginning of segment "The House on Baker Street"]
Himself - Host: The story of young lovers defying the wishes of their parents is as old as Romeo and Juliet and as new as today. The next story involves an ill-fated love-revenge and things that go bump in the night. And as you'll see at the conclusion of our story, Romeo and Juliet were never like this. Just ask the neighbors.

Not Exactly Award Winning Material But Fun to Watch
19 July 2002 | by (pa) – See all my reviews

"Beyond Belief: Fact or Fiction" has to be one of the coolest concepts for a series. Each episode has five fascinating stories are narrated or played out and you have to guess which ones are real and which ones are made up. At the end of each episode, it is revealed which ones are true and which are fiction. The stories run the gamut: some are scary, some touching, some just outright stupid. All of them have some element of unbelievability and make you say to yourself "There is no way in the world that this actually happened". While the acting may not be great and some of the stories may be corny, this show is still always fun to watch. The show's appeal is not really based on the acting, it is more based more on imagination and suspense.

Johnathan Frakes is unbelievably as the host. At the beginning of every episode, he'll show some kind of drawing or model which is not actually as it appears. After every story, he will come up with a pun which pertains to the story. For instance after a story in which a guy hitched a ride with a dead person, he said "Is this story true or are our writers just taking you for a ride?".

So, if you are fascinated by unbelievable real-life stories like me, I would definitely recommend it. It is one of the few good shows that really keeps my interest.
