Private investigation episode., 21 January 2017

*** This review may contain spoilers ***

Private investigation episode. The Missing Heir introduction has the background of lovey San Francisco, which narration describes as a finical hub. The viewer learns about the monetary system, and unclaimed wealth. In Search investigates unclaimed stock option worth 3 million (1980). The history of the stock is traced. A cross country investigation of last names, rumors, and locations across the U S to find leads on the missing heir. A Mike Hammer meets In Search of episode. Interesting in a America's most wanted way. Did not find the most compelling episode of the series. There is mystery. A change of style for In Search of. Okay, but not memorable. Six out of ten.

Riveting episode!, 19 January 2017
8/10

*** This review may contain spoilers ***

Riveting episode! In Search of Air Disaster Prediction enthralled the audience with person stories of psychic phenomena! There is interviews, and scientific explanation of the premonition of air disasters. Could psychic phenomena be used to prevent future disasters? There is an interview of a women with a detailed radio prediction of a crash. A gruelling story/reenactment of a man with recurring detailed nightmare of an air crash. The tormented man phones the F A A and tries to help. Painful to watch as the two try to prevent the un-preventable. In Search of Air Disaster Prediction left an impression on me. Air Disaster Prediction is one of the most memorable episodes for season 4. Eight out of ten.

Earth Visitors is an interesting episode. Hopi, Greek, Iranian etc past cultures may have had Earth Visitors influence. Costumes, perfect math for arrangement of temples and art does resemble aliens, space observations, and unknown physics. How much of Earth Visitors evidence could be labelled coincidental, and circumstantial. Thin on fact for some of the evidence. The strong evidence for Earth Visitors is the rock with mechanical thing ma gig in it. A few of the art works being in several cultures explain there is evidence of some strange past events we do not understand. Mix review. 7 out of 10 stars. Worth watching.

Interesting episode! Not great, nothing special, but interesting. I like the biblical re-telling of John the Baptist. The reenactments are great. The actor played a believable John. The second part of John asks what happen after John's death? The first theory about were John's body lies is just conjecture. No hard facts. Interesting, but not compelling. Belief, faith and emotion are evident with the experts. Narration, filming and opinion is by the numbers. I did not mind the episode. Watched worse episodes. Not not on my favourite episode list either! A good retelling of the importance of John for the Christine world. Six out of ten.

It was okay!, 16 January 2017
6/10

*** This review may contain spoilers ***

It was an okay movie! What worked:Wellacted and directed movie. The mystery of could this machine work? Alan Turing characters comic bluntness. Turing job interview scene was hilarious. How intelligence system works, and Turing's ability to manipulate his boss. The portrayal of spy games and spy masters was compelling. What did not work: Turing was bright and right about issues, but lacked social graces. The viewer could see why Truing's co-workers and boss hated Turing. The declassification of knowing the German cold and the harsh decisions left the viewer cold. The Imitation Game okay, but hard to watch. Six out of ten stars.

A sad episode., 15 January 2017
7/10

A sad episode. Leonard Nimoy who played Vincent's brother in a play wanted to find out the truth about Van Gogh. We learned of Van Gogh's brilliance as an artist. The story of Van Gogh who sliced a piece of his own ear off, shot him self, and was hounded by external and personal demons. Nimoy though Van Gogh was elliptic but not insane, which could explain Van Gogh state of mind with out medication. The reading, explanations etc were very personal for Nimoy. We find the actor/artist side of Nimoy in the Van Gogh episode. My wife thought Van Gogh suffered a mental illness. Maybe one day we could find the truth. In Search of had visits to the town in France, and were Van Gogh drank coffee, the mental hospital were interesting. A few interviews, but more Nimoy's personal interpretation of events. A personal In search of for Nimoy. 7 out of 10.

Interesting episode! A must watch if you live in California. In Search of The San Andreas Fault explains what causes of earth quakes. Plates shifting, under ground pressure, weak points in the earth, cause earth quakes, faults and especially the San Andreas Fault line. In Search of goes into detail about how California's fault lines work. I would not want to live in Holister California after watching this episode! Past earth quakes are vividly portrayed and how a over populated California will be worse off when a big quake hits. Not a matter of if, but when! San Andreas Fault episode, after the depressing news, end with research on how animals act before a quake hits. The interviews, earth quake footage, experts, research methods, and narration creates a synergy for an interesting episode. Not as entertaining as Haunted Castles episode, but watchable. Six out of ten stars. My wife would rank the episode higher.

The Dogon tribe of Africa, live a peaceful existence based on the belief everyone, and nature is intertwined into a natural order. The agriculture is based on the position of the heavens and the life of the tribe. How did a Tribe with no N A S A technology base The Dogon belief system on the origin of life and beliefs comes from a dark star which could not be detected until modern age? Experts say coincidence! The ceremonies match the dark stars rotation every 60 years, and the position of the consolations! Details which match science! More coincidence! The Dark Star is mix of the Dogon's culture, ceremonies, expert interviews, scientific explanations, and Star Treck's Spock's great narration. I ask my self how is all this possible. Fascinating Captain! Eight out of ten.

In Search of Pompeii is okay! What worked: Viewer found out about the life style of Rome 1900 years ago. The Volcano buried perfectly the town.Gladiator arena, and houses intact is interesting to look at. How the dig was discovered by chance was an interesting story. How the molding process to mold to scale people was fascinating. How 1900 years ago had no idea of how Volcanoes work. Bird entrails predicted Pombeii was safe. What did not work: The interviews and experts where so so. Six out of ten stars. Watch it.Pompeii is such and great topic. Interesting, but forgettable. Still liked it. Not one of the better In search of episodes.

Educational/boring!, 7 January 2017
5/10

*** This review may contain spoilers ***

Educational, but boring! I did not mine the Mexican Pyramids episode. The Mexican Pyramids episode was interesting, but shot like one of those educational movies I watched in grade school. The pictures, and footage of the the lost cities were interesting. The explanation of Aztec building, science and math was fascinating. Aztec's understood the concept of zero, which many other culture did not I never knew. The human sacrifice for the rise of the son, and the way the sacrifices were done was horrific. I wonder if that many sacrifices is why the population bolted form the cities out of fear, with the lower and higher classics at odds? The above mentioned suggestion from the Pyramid episode subliminally implied, and is conjecture! Regrettably, In Search of Mexican Pyramids got across flat. The usual bluster of narration, shots, interviews never materialized. A slower episode. 5 out of 10.
