Throughout history there have been countless sightings of mysterious creatures, from Megladon, the father of the great white shark; to gators in the sewer, a result of the rising gator populations clashing with human encroachment; to the Snow Beast of the Colorado Rockies that is thought to be hunting the elk population while fleeing man. Most of what we know of these creatures comes from campfire stories, blurry films and grainy photographs. In Season three, MonsterQuest brings science and technology to bear on these creatures of legend and seeks new, reliable evidence of their existence. Open-eyed historical research and hardcore analysis set the stage for groundbreaking field work: high-tech expeditions to the terrain these famous monsters are said to inhabit. Deploying state-of-the-art equipment, each episode scientifically examines the best evidence available, from pictures and video, to hair and bones, to actual eyewitness accounts. From pilots to policemen to ship captains, a number of seemingly credible people have seen things they can t explain. One part history, one part science and one part monsters, MonsterQuest discovers the truth in these sightings, and the legendary creatures behind them.

So the show is great....but sadly this Set contains only 8 episodes of Season 3, and to my knowledge the History channel decided not to release the other episodes on DVD. It seems like they wanted to release this Season in three different DVD Sets, and for reasons not known to us they decided not to produce Set number 2 and Set number 3. I still recommend this DVD Set because all 8 investigations are very interesting, but it's disappointing to know that the other 17 episodes of Season 3 will never be released on DVD. Or at least it won't be released anytime soon.
Here are the 8 episodes you'll find on this 2-Disc Set:
- DISC 1 (approx 188 min): Death of Loch Ness / Cattle Killers / Swamp Stalker / Devils In New Jersey
- DISC 2 (approx 188 min): Gators in the Sewers / Snowbeast Slaughter / Mega Jaws / Monster Close Encounters / Bonus
1. Death of Loch Ness : A review of researcher Robert Rhines' claim that Nessie, if it existed, may now in fact be dead and its corpse is lying somewhere at the bottom of Loch Ness.
2. Cattle Killers : An investigation into the unexplained mutilations of livestock in North America which are found drained of blood and with surgically precise wounds that do not match known predators.
3. Swamp Stalker : A trek into the swamps around Fouke, Arkansas following skilled trackers in search of a nocturnal, Bigfoot-like creature said to be responsible for violent attacks.Read more ›
With this third season, the quest goes off rails as the team ransacks the New York sewage system looking for alligators (they only find roaches), or sends out a posse to find the...wait for it...Jersey Devil - in broad day light, no less. "Snowbeast Slaughter" looked promising, but according to the perennial sceptics on the web, the episode might actually be a gigantic hoax?!
The real nose dive, pun intended, comes in the episode about the Black Demon, a gigantic man-eating shark hiding out in Baja California. The team does manage to establish contact with a shark of truly enormous proportions, only to find that it's a completely harmless...whale shark.
I was somewhat annoyed by the eye-witnesses who refuse to accept natural explanations to their encounters with "monsters", such as the lady whose car was trashed by a feral dog - apparently, the car was so rusty that pretty much any animal could have chewed it! In her version, a sturdy vehicle was destroyed by a monster (OK, I guess it could have been a rabid St. Bernard).
Am I getting too old for this kind of stuff, or what?
I'm not sure how to rate this DVD (which only includes 8 of the 25 episodes of Season Three), but since I don't want my rusty persona to be mauled by the Abominable MonsterQuest Fan Monster, I give it the OK rating. Three stars.
