Storyline

Leonard Nimoy hosted this quasi-documentary television show which portrayed unusual natural phenomena and 'investigated' the paranormal. Its style of interspersing 'talking heads' with sensationalistic video segments may have been the forerunner of 'info-tainment.' Written by Tad Dibbern <DIBBERN_D@a1.mscf.upenn.edu>

An Amazing Documentary Series on all things Supernatural and Unexplained!
7 April 2006 | by jackabibSee all my reviews

Its such ashame that shows of this caliber don't exist anymore. For gods sake if your gonna do a real life series about strange things... make it seem realistic. The best thing about "In Searh Of" was the production values and style. Very similar to the classic Nostradamus TV movie narrated by Orson Welles all of the things on this show may not be 100% factual, but boy do they come across that way! The location filming, somber tone, simple editing techniques, and excellent work of Leornard Nimoy are all pitch perfect and create just the right mood. The new version that aired on the sci-fi channel a few years back looked like it was shot in someones basement and featured a lot of flashy lights, quick cuts, weird people with little credibility, and talentless hack Mitch Pileggi. Is it just me or are good hosts impossible to come by these days? The last one i can remember for a dramatic series was Robert Stack on Unsolved Mysteries. Man was he good. Now we get people like Forrest Whitaker and Henry Rollins who just aren't up for the challenge. Anyway if you wanna feel like your actually watching something true to life steer clear of the new one and check this classic out!
