Mountain Monsters Week - New Season Starts Saturday



Since the new season is starting this Saturday, this week is "Mountain Monsters Week" on Destination America.

BroadWayWorld has some more info about the new season:

"For four years, the Appalachian Investigators of Mysterious Sightings (AIMS) have fought a tooth-and-nail battle to trap mysterious monsters that threaten the safety of mountain communities. They've hunted Bigfoot, Sheepsquatch, Hellhounds, and dozens of other beasts, but along the way the tables turned. Now these lifelong hunters are being hunted by a masked rival team with ulterior, dangerous motives. AIMS continues their mission to investigate monsters in an all-new eight-episode season of Mountain Monsters premiering Saturday, April 8 at 10/9c on Destination America.
"'This season more than ever before, Mountain Monsters puts the AIMS team front and center as they respond to the challenge of their rivals,' said Jane Latman general manager of Destination America. 'As the team jumps back into investigating monsters like they do best, their personal relationships and group dynamics will be tested in the most epic battle of man versus beast yet.'
"In the special two-part premiere airing Saturday, April 8 and Saturday, April 15, after nine months of radio silence from the enigmatic 'Rogue Team' - a shadowy foe that has been relentlessly thwarting AIMS' investigations for years - youngest AIMS team member Buck takes matters into his own hands to get answers once and for all. Buck's bold actions cause a rift among his mountain brothers Trapper, Willy, Jeff, Huckleberry, and Wild Bill as they weigh their own personal safety against a chance to lure the Rogue Team out from the shadows. While tensions rise, a whole new mission awaits AIMS in a dark place they have been before, a place they fear with new questions, mysteries, and monsters. 
"AIMS' new journey begins in the episode airing Saturday, April 22 as they travel to Lee County, Va. Despite attempting to ease the investigation, danger finds them quickly as the forest's evil forces wake up to their arrival and target Jeff. There's more supernatural warfare ahead than the team had bargained for, but will they rise to complete the quest? Find out in the most intense, suspenseful, and emotionally charged season of Mountain Monsters yet.
"For a refresher on how AIMS got to where they are, catch up with a weeklong Mountain Monsters Week marathon of every episode from the very beginning starting Monday, April 3 and continuing through the premiere on Saturday, April 8."

So I guess this time the season won't be a "Bigfoot Edition" as I initially thought. And if it isn't, that's fine! I would like it if they go back to going after something different each week.

Be sure to check out the new season of Mountain Monsters this Saturday!

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.
