The most fun you'll have watching some guys run around in the woods
30 January 2008 | by TanuccoonSee all my reviews

Destination Truth follows the exploits of self-styled adventurer and cryptozoologist Josh Gates. Every episode Gates and his drinking buddies search for two new cryptids (or, when convenient, any other odd stuff in the vicinity).

If you overlook the fact that Gates lacks any real credentials (although he regularly consults with experts), the show is a great watch. It's a light-hearted alternative to series like Ghost Hunters and MonsterQuest.

Although Destination Truth's methods are suspect (as they only spend a few days in most locations), they're by no means worse than other sensationalist documentaries and the casting more than makes up for any shortcomings: Gates is both abrasive and witty as he playfully (and rightfully) ridicules first-hand eye-witness testimony; his outright skepticism is a breath of air; and his sarcasm, well, a bit over the time (he's about as subtle as a hammer... or Michael Moore).

All in all, Destination Truth is a surprisingly good watch for a Scifi channel documentary.
