Animal Planet "Monster Week" to Feature Final Episode of Finding Bigfoot

Could it be?
"Monster Week" is coming next month on Animal Planet and it's starting off with the final episode of Finding Bigfoot.

The Wrap reports:

Animal Planet's 'Monster Week' 2018 will kick off with the 100th and final episode of 'Finding Bigfoot,' TheWrap has learned exclusively. Not a bad way to get things going, or to finally bid adieu to a fan-favorite TV series.
The week-long celebration will be hosted by Rhys Darby ('Flight of the Concords'), Dan Schreiber and Buttons of podcast 'The Cryptid Factor,' and it also includes new episodes of 'River Monsters,' 'Expedition Unknown,' 'Deadliest Place on Earth' and 'World's Scariest Animal Attacks,' along with a slew of specials, we're told.
We've got the trailer for the annual event posted above and more details below - the news and footage is all ours, not that we're trying to be monsters about it.
'Monster Week' premieres Sunday, May 27 - that's Memorial Day Weekend, by the way - at 8/7c with the 100th and final episode of 'Finding Bigfoot,' which returns to television after more than a year-long hiatus.
The two-hour special features Bigfoot Field Researchers Organization president Matt Moneymaker, researchers James 'Bobo' Fay and Cliff Barackman and skeptical scientist Ranae Holland as they travel to the 50th anniversary celebration of the Patterson Gimlin film, which is often referred to as the holy grail of Bigfoot footage and the most famous piece of evidence ever recorded.
Cutting-edge technology brings forth all-new details of the creature captured on this film and leaves our investigators more convinced than ever about its authenticity, per Animal Planet. A farewell retrospective on the series follows.

There are a number of other cryptid-related specials during Monster Week as well - more on them later!

I for one am kind of glad Finding Bigfoot is ending, though I find it kind of odd they decided to do it now with one episode after having been off the air for so long.

What do you think about the show ending?

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.
