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>

The best documentary series ever!
28 September 2001 | by dtucker86See all my reviews

This show is without a doubt a true classic that has stood the test of time. Even though it first aired a quarter of a century ago it has not aged a bit and there is not a documentary series since that could top it. I'm glad it is still in syndication and that future generations can appreciate its greatness as well. No one else could have done a better job hosting a series like this then Leonard Nimoy. He brought intensity, style and an air of mystery like no other. Everything about this wonderful show was first rate from the crisp narration to the spooky music. Weather we were hunting for Jack the Ripper, Bigfoot or whatever happened to Amelia Earhart, you always knew you were in for a great ride! I remember as a kid there was one episode that terrified me. It was about haunted England and there was one scene where it reenacted a ghost story about a young woman who was frightned to death by a ghost that appeared at the foot of her bed. I lost a lot of sleep over that one.
