Someone give the narrator a pay rise. And fast.
6 January 2011 | by jonesd66See all my reviews

I notice that when I selected "one" vote out of ten for this show, the good people at IMDb included the word "awful" in brackets beside the number one. My guess is they must have seen this show too.

Cheap shots aside, this show is best described in it's own words as as a search for monsters by using science. Except that this show is to science what porn is to family values. Let me explain.

First things first let's look at how science searches for monsters on this show. It's pretty special to say the least. My favorite part is the casting. Basically there are three main character types, and each is worth a snapshot description. First there are the "witnesses": no casting agency could have come close to producing a more yokel worthy lot. Even the ones that clearly aren't inbred, still manage to somehow convince you that they see strange shapes in their toast.

Next come the scientists: with very few exceptions the majority are on the show payroll and therefore turn up again and again. I will say this much, if this is the best science has to offer, i'm going back to steering clear of the edge of this very flat earth we're on. These rejects range from being soft touches to being even softer touches. I can't do justice to how embarrassing these noneties really are. Once in every while a genuine, bona fide, and objective analyst somehow manages to get a word in. And I'm not exaggerating when I say a word. Their air time is short and edited to ensure that it either sounds unfinished or uncertain - or is a lead in to someone certifiable.

And last of all, holding the whole thing together are the cryptozoologists. Well the best I can say here is combine the characteristics of the two types mentioned above and you get the picture. Like most crypto/pseudo/conspiratorially minded "independant" researchers - this lot all come with a self fulfilling mission in life. They also always like to be interviewed with stuffed creatures behind them.

As for how the show's put together, it's pure genius. In terms of how to blow smoke without lighting a cigarette anyway. The basic drill is lots of dramatic music, lots of cliff-hanger sequences, dead end searches and a narrator who will stop at nothing to try and make something out of nothing. The end result is nearly forty episodes made up of people mumbling about what they're "sure they saw". And the thousand worst photos ever taken of anything in history. And finally, not a single conclusive finding.

Please watch this show. It's proof that monsters not only don't exist, but that if they did - they'd immediately go into hiding when this welcome party turned up.
