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!

The Burrunjor - A Present-Day Australian Dinosaur?

Australia is said to be home to a variety of cryptid creatures, from the aquatic Bunyip, the man-like Yowies and Wakkis, and the thylacine. There is another, however, that could be considered stranger than all the others. Why? Because its said to be something that should have gone extinct 65 million years ago!

The creature in question is called the Burrunjor, and is said to be a surviving dinosaur. Now, before you think that there is no possible way the Burrunjor could be real, remember that there are sightings and stories of other dinosaur-like creatures from around the world - for example, the mokele-mbembe, kongamato, and others in Africa, "Mounatin Boomers" in the U.S., the Partridge Creek Monster, and more.

Over the years there have been many sightings and stories of the Burrunjor in Australia, including this one from Rex and Heather Gilroy from the 1970s:

"In 1978, a Northern Territory bushman and explorer, Bryan Clark, related a story of his own that had taken pl…

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…

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.
