I find Destination Truth to be profoundly disappointing. My first complaint is that they must be addressing an audience of ignorami, as the lion's share of the "little-known mysteries" that they examine are quite well known among fans of cryptozoology or paranormal (e.g., haunting) phenomena. I find the main guy, Josh, to be overwhelmingly arrogant and pseudo-knowledgeable: I'm not sure whether it's his mispronunciation of words that's more annoying to me than his corrupted citations of almost-facts. The specialty of the show is what I term the "red herring cliffhanger": we are introduced to a "Holy cow!" situation that introduces--guess what--a COMMERCIAL and is immediately followed by a letdown. The attempts at detecting evidence of, say, ghostly phenomena are about as childish as, "Whoa, did you see that?" "O.K., guys, I'm getting creeped out," "Oh, it just got colder in here," and that old standard, "Did someone or something just touch me?" The simulated, nonsensical terror--ALWAYS dispelled and resulting in a zero-lessons-learned mission--reminds one (and this is FAR from a compliment) of "The Blair Witch Project" with a touch of bachelor's-degree-level biology or ecology.
