Storyline

Ripley's Believe It or Not! is a curious format, sort of a 'Guiness Book of Records'-like magazine on TV. It has no permanent cast or storyline, just a presenting host in the castle-type LA residence who occasionally shows curiosities from 'Ripley's vault' there, but usually simply introduces the topics shown in the various, rather short film sequences shot all over the world, in addition to which some weird facts (e.g. absurd laws) can be quickly reviewed. Each report -usually independent, follow-up is rare- is on something very unusual, surprising and/or spectacular, such as inventions, stunts and records, freak creatures and - accidents. Sometimes the title is taken literally when a few of the least likely items are bunched up for the viewer to guess which one isn't true. Written by KGF Vissers

23 June 2005 | by (Pennsylvania,US) – See all my reviews

Besides Fear Factor, this is the grossest show on television. I mean, it's a good show, but certain elements of it are quite disturbing. Most of the unusual stories on this show are based on sports daredevils receiving massive head injuries, but mostly no one dies, which is truly a miracle. I watch this show every Wednesday night on Sci-Fi and I am impressed, with most of it. I wouldn't recommend this show for children under 7 years of age, but if you're someone interested in Sci-Fi stuff like I am, this is an excellent show for you to see. Of all the Sci-Fi shows, this definitely newly defines the genre to a whole new level. 9/10*.
