I've watched a few but found them to be pretty much all the same.



I went into the woods, saw/heard a big scary monster and escaped to tell about it on tv. yawn.




stopped watching.

We bought a house that was five years old back in the 1970's. The previous owners had an old dog coupe outside. In the middle of the night we would be woken up by a sound that seemed it was the next-door neighbor's wife being strangled to death. One night I caught a glimpse of a bobcat perched on top of the old doghouse. So we loaded the doghouse up in the truck and took it to the dump; no more bobcat screeching in the middle of the night.

Sometimes one just has to shine a little light on the noise and our fears can go away. Just because we have not heard a noise before does not mean that it points to a mythical beast.

I am sure there are enough people out there who are interested in mysteries and frustrated by this kind of TV series who would watch it.

It all plays to the sensation-seeking side our TV nature. Thats why I think the UK's BBC is good as they do real investigation programs occasionally.
Ive never seen tv show that was interested in doing a REAL investigation into these kinds of things, they are created to be entertaining and get people to tune in and watch, I havent wasted my time watching any shows in years, the times I have, they were all the same...jump scares, "what was that, it sounded weird...oh it was nothing", LOL


Its hard to find 'truths' in any of this stuff, unfortunately, there is money to be made from scaring people, and everyone is out to make more money!

The episode last week about the Bigfoot or Dogman creature was good. The family lived deep in the woods and this thing attacked their horse, leaving big scratches on the horses hindquarters. I’d be afraid to live so far away from civilization, who knows what might be lurking. The woods have seen a lot of people vanish.
I have seen the horse scratch story used several times, no picture or film of the horse ever gets shown. The only good thing is everyone always gets away safely to tell their story. Amazing how these 8-10 foot tall super aggressive creatures built better than Arnold at his prime never catch out of shape little humans.

I was speaking of Dogmen being that size and aggressive from all the stories, not Bigfoot. Bigfoot has grown in size considerably since the 70's when I heard stories as a kid, just not Dogman size yet.

We have heard stories that even military, police and survival experts wet themselves when they have an encounter. But I never see the police reports of any of these creatures killing somebody.

That's because they don't exist. Unless you are to belive a percentage of missing persons cases are victims of bigfoot/cryptid kills.
I do like this show though. Some of the stories are interesting provided you can get past the over the top recreations.

Whoever said Dogman or Bigfoot was killing anyone? Ive never read any claims of that, to be honest, I dont think Ive even read any reports where people were seriously harmed or touched by these things.
