Will Finding Bigfoot be Over Soon?


If/when Finding Bigfoot will end seems to be in the news a lot lately. We already had the "Finding Bigfoot can't find Bigfoot," (see my post on that here) and now there's more like that.

Yesterday, I saw an article on Examiner.com entitled "'Swamp People' and 'Finding Bigfoot': Knowing when to say when is the key." Since this is a cryptozoology blog, I'm not going to say anything about Swamp People. (Well, that, and I never watch it.)

Here is what Barbie Crafts, "Reality TV Examiner" (is that seriously a job??), and author of the article said about Finding Bigfoot after talking about Swamp People:

"Speaking of comfortable repetition, 'Finding Bigfoot' has had the same basic format for every episode since their debut in 2011. They are riding in a car discussing the upcoming investigation; they have town hall meetings, interviews with witnesses, night investigations, overnight solo investigations and reenactments to determine size and placement. It has been great fun, but frankly, not only have they not 'found' Bigfoot, they have not really 'found' anything. A few wood knocks, some howls in the woods and a few errant sticks are just about all we have to show for five years of shows. It was a comfortable experience where viewers knew what to expect, but, comfort has now turned to uneventful monotony. The Bigfoot Field Researchers Organization (BFRO) , which 'Finding Bigfoot' team member Ranae Holland was careful to inform this writer that she was NOT a member, will continue to monitor woods around the country for Sasquatch activity. They will surely let us know if they find anything. Otherwise, the 'Finding Bigfoot' team should just go back to their day jobs, but we will miss them one and all."

Uh, I think Finding Bigfoot is kinda their job.

In the article, Crafts says "not only have they not 'found' Bigfoot, they have not really 'found' anything." Like I say every time someone says this: they will NEVER find a Bigfoot filming a TV show! It's not just the four of them out in the woods, there's a whole camera and sound crew there, too!! And, those camera people don't really like to go too far into the woods.  Maybe the author of the article should go out someplace and look for Bigfoot. There's a reason these things are still hiding from the scientists - you don't just see one every time you go into the woods, let alone with a group of twenty people.

What do you think? Should Finding Bigfoot just quit? Or should they keep on squatchin'?

Do You Think Finding Bigfoot Should End?

Mountain Monsters - Coming Back in 2018?

Destination America's Mountain Monsters was a huge hit when it premiered in 2013. It's had five seasons through last year.

Season 3 started a "Bigfoot Edition" and season 4 introduced a "rogue team." Last season focused entirely on this "rogue team" and ended with really no conclusion.

Over the past 2 Saturdays, some old season 2 episodes of Mountain Monsters have been playing in the evenings. Could this be a sign that the show might be back for another season this year, or does it have no meaning at all?

If the show does come back, where can they go? Last season made absolutely no sense at all and the whole thing was pretty stupid. If it does come back, I think they should go back to just monster hunting like they did in the first two seasons. Once they went to just "Bigfoot Edition" things went downhill quick.

Some Thoughts on Alaska Monsters: Bigfoot Edition

So far, two episodes of Alaska Monsters: Bigfoot Edition have aired. Here are some of my thoughts on the show.

First off, let's start with the team, the Midnight Sons. There are a few new members on the team this season. The old leader, Little Bear, is gone, and now Crusty (the guy with the bear claw in his beard) is leader of the team. Other members are: Dudley (new guy), the team "forensic expert," Todd, the "trap engineer," Bulldog (new guy), the "survival expert," Rhett, the "greenhorn" (rookie), and of course Face, the "veteran tracker."

Compared to the AIMS Team of Mountain Monsters, Crusty is Trapper, Todd is Willy, Rhett is Buck, Bulldog would probably be Huckleberry, Dudley would probably be Jeff, and Face would be Wild Bill.

I haven't seen the first episode, "Bigfoot of the Arctic Circle: Siberian Giant," but I did watch episode two, "Bigfoot of Denali: Wind Walker" last Saturday. I actually though…

Review - Invasion on Chestnut Ridge

Small Town Monsters' 5th film, Invasion on Chestnut Ridge, comes out soon. STM director Seth Breedlove let me check out an advance copy of the film to put up a review on here. Though I've been quite busy for about the last month and a half, I finally got a chance to check out the film, and these are my thoughts on it.

Invasion is about the strange happenings along the Chestnut Ridge in Pennsylvania. Local residents who have had strange encounters are interviewed, as well as researchers Stan Gordon and Eric Altman.  Along the ridge, witnesses have reported ghost lights, UFOs, Bigfoot, werewolves, thunderbirds, and many, many other odd things.

Many well known sightings happened in the early 1970s, when reports of UFOs and Bigfoot were very frequent. The strangest thing of all this was that sometimes the two would be seen at the same time, or shortly after on another. Some witnesses even saw a white colored Bigfoot that was holding a ball of light.

On another occasion, two Bigfo…
