TV Review: The Lowe Files

I’m not sure why, at this point, I keep tuning in to new paranormal television shows. Partly it’s for my son, who loves all things paranormal, and it’s a fun bonding experience for us. Part of me hopes, even prays, that someone, at some point, will make a good paranormal TV show again. And I […]

Ghost Hunters leaving SyFy Channel

Ghost Hunters Leaving the SyFy Channel

Well, this is a bit unexpected. Jason Hawes, the lovable lead investigator of those wacky ghost hunters of The Atlantic Paranormal Society, announced today that Season 11 will be the last season of Ghost Hunters on the SyFy Channel. While I’d like to believe that Jason and the crew are leaving SyFy in order to […]

Guilty Pleasures: Survivorman Bigfoot

I really hate to include Survivorman Bigfoot in my guilty pleasures category, mainly because unlike the other shows that I have lumped into this category, Survivorman Bigfoot is actually very well-done. The concept is simple: survival expert Les Stroud strikes out into the wilderness, sometimes accompanied by local Bigfoot researchers, in order to find proof […]

Mountain Monsters: Fakest of the Fake Paranormal Shows?

My 7-year old son, God bless him, has recently taken an extreme interest in the paranormal, just like his dad. He’s got a bunch of age-appropriate books on the subject, with Bigfoot and ghosts being his favorite phenomena, but finding appropriate TV shows for him to watch is tough. He loves Finding Bigfoot and MonsterQuest, but […]

Destination Truth: Ghosts of Petra

One of my favorite paranormal/unexplained reality shows of all time is Destination Truth hosted by Joshua Gates. Gates and his crew visit places around the world such as King Tut’s Tomb, the Great Wall of China, Island of Dolls in Mexico, Eastern Island, etc. in search of hints and clues of paranormal activity and cryptozoological creatures […]

Guilty Pleasures: Celebrity Ghost Stories

Last week, I wrote about one of my guilty pleasures, the Animal Planet show Finding Bigfoot. Tough for me to admit, because on the whole, I don’t really enjoy the current crop of paranormal TV offerings. But I must admit that there are a few I watch, and mainly because even though they are not […]

Guilty Pleasures: Finding Bigfoot

It’s no secret that I’m not a fan of paranormal reality TV shows, for perhaps obvious reasons. And over the years, I’ve taken a lot of shots at them here in the blog. But in the interest of fairness, I felt that I had to come clean and admit to some guilty pleasures, as there […]

10 Million Dollar Bigfoot Bounty to Premiere Friday January 10th on Spike TV

So I guess this is really going to happen. I was hoping this show would die a quiet, painless death behind the scenes, and off of the radar, but it seems we will not be so lucky. Spike TV will be bringing us the new “reality” game show called 10 Million Dollar Bigfoot Bounty. And […]

I Want to Believe: Bigfoot on the Brain

The summer of my Bigfoot obsession began with an episode of MonsterQuest on the History Channel, which had long since stopped showing shows about history. I was watching my niece—she was napping and I was half asleep on the couch. I heard a groan escape the television and crawl its way up my toes, my […]

Monsters And Mysteries In America Premieres March 24th

Not sure how I missed this announcement, so I’m glad I’ve been able to watch a bit more TV lately (well, more than the regular none) and was able to catch the commercial and subsequently program my DVR. I’m not a big fan of most of the current paranormal shows, as they basically all feature […]
