Missing in Alaska Taken off the Air



If you are someone like me who likes Ken Gerhard's new show Missing in Alaska, you probably noticed it was not on Friday night. Gerhard commented on this on Cryptomundo on yesterday:

"I'm sorry to announce that Missing in Alaska has been removed from the History Channel schedule for this evening. Admittedly, I'm not sure precisely what that means and those decisions are obviously way above my head. I know we've averaged about 1,000,000 viewers for the first three episodes and have ranked decently in the ratings. I appreciate all of you who have supported and watched the show thus far. I'm hopeful that the network is merely making a strategic move as they evaluate which time slot might work best for moving forward. If any of you are concerned, I invite you to send an email or letter to History Channel expressing that you enjoy the program. Much Love!"
So far, three episodes of the show have aired, and I have really enjoyed all of them. I really hope the History Channel didn't take the show off the air for good. It's cool because it isn't the totally staged thing like Alaska Monsters or Mountain Monsters (the latter of which I actually also really enjoy) or the same exact thing every time like Finding Bigfoot. So far each time it's been something different.

History Channel, please put Missing in Alaska back on!

What do you think? Do you want the show to keep going?

I know I haven't been blogging this week, and that's because I've been at the fair. But now that that's over, be sure to check back later for more on Tyler's Cryptozoo!

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…
