This show is an update in the vein of "In Search Of" with Leonard Nemoy, remember that one? I used to always watch that show in the 70's when I was a teen. I used to read books about UFO's also, I was amazed, but ala you were always left hanging in both regards, no concrete proof. So we have this show which is basically a rehash of those entertainment premises, with maybe the exception that they do try a little bit to debunk some of these myths. I'm not sure they try very hard though which is OK by me, I like to leave it hanging out there. I though about a movie while I watched this one episode of "Is It Real?", that movie is "Amazon Women On The Moon" they did a skit starring Henry Silva called "Is It BS or Not?" except they said the whole BS word. That skit contemplated that the loch ness monster was Jack The Ripper, I loved it when Silva in deadpan humor went, "As we will see in this BS re-enactment that the loch ness monster was Jack The Ripper", LOL. Reminded me a lot of all these shows. 5 of 10 they do try a little bit to debunk things, and the footage is a lot clearer then my memories of Leonard Nemoy's 70's show are. Really comes down to zombie time to watch TV when nothing else is on.
