My favorite show on tv
on April 10, 2010
My husband and I have been fans of this show since it began, and have been waiting forever for it to hit DVD. We can only hope the rest of the seasons follow shortly.
There are a lot of reasons this is my favorite show. For one, I've always been a fan of Cryptozoology, but this show manages to be informative and very funny at the same time. Unlike other shows on the topic (Monster Quest, Is It Real?, ect.), Destination Truth manages to respect the subject matter without taking itself too seriously. Host Josh Gates is a fantastic host. He knows his stuff, but makes sure to have fun on the journey. This show also stands out for putting the spotlight not just one the Bigfoot, Ghosts and Sea Creatures of the world, but on the towns and people that pass these legends on. Each episode informs us not only of the creature being looked into, but the area, culture and people who live at each location. It is like the best of travel, cryptozoology and great comedy. Josh is helped in his adventures by a team of researchers, specialist and other companions that bring their knowledge as well as their personality to each show.
With each episode generally highlighting two investigations, most of which take place internationally, the sights and sounds are always fresh and exciting. I would also note that fans of SyFy Channel's Ghost Hunters would be excited to see Jay and Grant (as well as others from their show) appear from time to time to offer their expertise. And even the seeming little details, like transportation or what is on the local menu, help to keep this show on my must see tv list. I am so glad the SyFy Channel has supported this show and hope it stays on tv for a long time.
