In Search Of... "Bigfoot" (1977)

Episode five tackles the mythical and legendary Bigfoot creature. We start off talking about the various versions of the creature but for the most part the episode stays in Northern California where we hear about a couple separate sightings including the Roger Patterson video. The last portion of the episode focuses on whether or not someone should kill one of the creatures even if that's the only way to prove that it's real. The series has certainly gotten more entertaining over the past few episodes with this one here being the best so far. ALl of the stories have been repeated countless times over the years but the episode is still a lot of fun.

Episode: B+
