Okay, 3 December 2016
5/10

*** This review may contain spoilers ***

Okay nothing special here! One learns about what forms a tornado. Hot and cold fronts mix in at the right area of the U S A called tornado ally. Great tornado footage with 40 to 200 mile hour winds, with projectiles. The tornado tracking center with satellites, weather patterns staff, a jet to study pressure etc all work together to alert the public. There is tornado footage of the aftermath and destruction. Interviews with the public, and how towns deal with the twister. Nothing new here. Get more from tornado documentaries from school. If I was going to miss an episode this would be it!The narration and direction is by the numbers. Okay to watch. I seen better episodes. 5 out of 10 twisters.

One of the better episodes!, 2 December 2016
7/10

One of the better episodes! In Search of The Shark Worshippers is both educational, and entertaining. In Search of explains the dangers, behaviour, and physical traits of sharks. Great live footage, of sharks and the dangerous results of sharks. Then the explanation of the Shark Worshippers, the environment and life of the tribe. No longer human sacrifices are part of the worship, but worship is still from the old. The people live in village is portrayed at time forgot back for the 1970's by In Search of. The village has it ways and culture. The Shark Worshippers ways of life is idea for the people there was the impression from In Search of. Worth checking out. 7 out of 10.

Just another episode., 28 November 2016

Educational, but just another In Search of episode. The viewer learns about how the Pyramids theoretically were built! Experts, theories, and great shots of the pyramids all mixed together make for a watchable episode. The experts doubt U F O's helped by the pyramids. The sharping of razors and any other secrets of Pyramid power is rubbish. What did the stars have to do with the Pyramids design is asked! Pyramid Secrets has nothing really secret here! Just another by the numbers In Search of, which blends into all the others. Does not stick out. Nothing special here! Six out of ten stars. I like the Big Foot episode better. Watch Haunted Castles for a good scare about older structures! OH well!

Dated but still good, 27 November 2016

Dated episode, but still good. In Search of Hurricanes was done before Hurricane Katrina , and used older examples. The episode details the origins, and causes of hurricanes. Intelligently mixes footage of the destructive force of a Hurricane with narration. The method are of detecting Hurricanes are studied. A bit dated! The after effects are shown, and the reaction of residents. Direr warnings about preparedness for Hurricanes by the director of Hurricane weather give eerie resonance of the disastrous Katrina. 7 out of 10. A good natural occurrence episode. One of the better episode. Worth watching! I would leave a area before the Hurricane after watching this episode!

Entertaining, 27 November 2016

One entertaining episode! The Western music, reenactments, story telling and Len's narration makes for one entertaining episode. What I liked is the photo shoots of the rugged Arizona's landscape and the reenactment of the Dutchman Mine story. The Apache's story of the mine/legend is told by the Apache's themselves. The stories of people who went after the gold mine. Local's thoughts about people who wonder In Search of gold. Gold fever, people trying to find who they are, and people chasing after a dream is what the locals think. Local's call it fools gold. Nothing there. 1984 it became illegal to gold hunt the area so the show is dated. An entertaining 22 minutes. Eight gold nuggets out of ten. A golden episode!

Make you go mmmmm!, 26 November 2016
7/10

*** This review may contain spoilers ***

Ancient Aviators asks questions episode! A true In Search of. The episode starts out with early Aviators, and flight. Different kinds of flight before the Wright brothers is studied. Then question of similarities of different cultures and flight is analyzed. Drawings, design and thought are theorized. Who, what and why are asked? The idea of something not from earth is breached. What I found interesting is the symbols only visual only from air, were made thousands of years ago. Entertaining, episode. But I would like to hear from the counter argument, which my class studied in Astronomy years ago. 7 out of 10 stars. I see Rod Serling/ Night Gallery influence in the beginning! One can see why In Search of became a hit!

The pilot episode!, 25 November 2016
6/10

*** This review may contain spoilers ***

The pilot episode. Do plants feel, communicate etc is questioned? In Search of Other Voices is a science based episode. There is questions/theories? Experiments with plants? Results and hypotenuses from the experiments. Overall the viewer is left to decide on the investigation. A great premise for a pilot episode. Experts, and people were asked about aura, camera work, music, green thumps etc The interviews give insight. Narration, introduction of Mr Spock, and the closing statements are great. Of course the music and the intro music make for a classic show. Not the best topic, but cool anyways. Other Voice is a green thump of a show. Six out of ten.

Spooky episode!, 24 November 2016
7/10

*** This review may contain spoilers ***

Leonard Nimoy can create a chilling narrative. The Mummy's Curse was a spooky episode in segments! The Mummy's Curse starts out with the history behind the dig, and the characters involved. When the tome was open the topic of the Mummy's Cures was analyzed. Suspicious deaths of the people involved where breached! Experts explain theories with opinions of: rubbish, coincidence, and many micro-virus for the deaths. The play scene was eerie. Then In Search of goes to modern times (1970's) with the modern exhibit in the U S and French scientist analyze a mummy for virus which could have been planted three thousand years ago. One of the better episode. There is only so much one can present in twenty two minutes. 7 out of 10 mummies for this one!

Dated but still good, 23 November 2016
6/10

*** This review may contain spoilers ***

Dated but still a good episode! Dracula episode starts out about the legend. How film, books and folklore created the mystique behind the man. In Search of becomes a historical episode. The viewer learns about the historical time, and the shaping of Vald the Impailer! The war with the Ottoman Empire and Vlad's brutal victory unfolds into a brutal story. Real life can be harsher than fiction! In Search of goes to Communist Romania, goes on a tour with the minister of culture and visits Vlad's home town. The interviews, background, and cultural surroundings created an interesting episode. Not the most memorable episode, but worth watching. Six out of ten fangs.

A solid episode, 22 November 2016
9/10

*** This review may contain spoilers ***

A solid episode! In Search of D B Cooper unfolds like a documentary. One learns of the events. The extortion, escape, and pursuit of the sky-jacking is analyzed. Interviews by witness, experts and theories meld into an interesting mystery. In Search of has great reenactments, music, narrations mixed back and forth with interviews, and theories. What is D B Cooper's real name? The psychologist take educated guesses. Did Cooper survive the jump? Experts theorize. Who, what, where could Cooper be is the million dollar question? Nine out of ten. The gold star standard episode for In search of. Nine stars out of ten. In search is dated for a 70's show.
