Storyline

This is a program that examines interesting and often odd locations, with interviews with an assortment of people, posing questions about places, events, seeming historical anomolies and curiosities all portrayed as mysteries being explained. While it purports to be a documentary of scientific examination, it is really just a sensationalist collection of scenes and narratives designed to lead the viewer to the erroneous conclusion that they are being presented with new scientific findings and explanations when, in fact, they are merely being entertained with half-baked theories, speculation, and little to no new scientific or historical information. Watch for such catch phrases like "It looks like..." or "It could be..." or "Maybe..." of similar phrases scattered liberally throughout the script. The programs are not a total waste of time; interesting and out-of-the-way locales are visited which have some scenic value. Remember: Sometimes some rocks and some dirt found in close ...

Interesting but annoying too
24 May 2018 | by kleinaliSee all my reviews

Like the idea of this show. Camerawork is great and I like Josh as a host. You don't see the mysteries solved, but there are enough facts included to pique interest .....I always end up looking for more information about the story afterwards. Having said all that... This program suffers from the same obnoxious and idiotic "enhancements" that so many others do these days.. Too many commercials Constant popup promos for other shows - can I just watch this one please ? ! Annoying tweets that take up half the screen. Makes it impossible to SEE the great video and experience the location. In short . ...promising idea that just ends up annoying me because I CAN'T SEE IT BEHIND THE JUNK. I'm not wasting my time anymore .
