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

nothing but a bunch of freaks
20 October 2012 | by (Guatemala) – See all my reviews

It's amazing how time has passed since the excellent TV series from the 80's that was hosted by Jack Palance, the difference between that show and this is one is completely abysmal. Besides the unique charm and charisma that Mr. Palance put in his performance and in every story, the unique presentation of the cases, not only fantastic human oddities, but historical, animal kingdom, curiosities, technology etc, was fascinating and bizarre, and at the same time, attractive, I never missed a episode, the opposite of what this show is, a lot of crazy trying to get attention and besides, with the very bad performance of Dean Cain, who apparently did not have enough destroying the superman character...
