NO SUCH ASTRONAUT is listed ANYWHERE on NASA's website!!!!
Shirley J. Millican
I don't like this show, thought it would be like destination truth but it's not a real "documentary" the videos are all fake.
Amber
Animal Planet's writers think of a way that "somebody" might come into contact with the creature if it existed.

*****This DVD set is a re-issued version of the first season of the show. This set contains the same programming and deleted features as the original version. The difference in this release is in the editing. When Lost Tapes is brodcast, it often has a splash screen with the show's logo and episode title before and after commercial breaks (which are many). This is (to me) annoying and tends to disrupt the flow of the show. The first version on DVD contained the splash sreens. This new edition DELETES THE SPLASH SCREENS before and after the commericial cuts. The episodes flow better and it is easier to follow the story without the annoying cuts. The logo splash is only at the beginning and end of the show. It is a great improvement.*******

Lost Tapes is my favorite Animal Planet show. It tells stories of alleged creatures disputed by science with first person accounts in realistic settings. It is entertaining, but you don't often get a good look at the creatures. That is why I didn't give this season a five star rating. That was changed in Season 2. The shows producers upped the scare factor in the second season that is currently airing. I can't wait for that to come out on DVD. The first season does contain some good stories and I love the diversity of the casts and locales. The set contains two DVDs with seven episodes on each and some deleted scenes.

Disc 1 contains:
Chupacabra
Skinwalker
Monster of Monterrey
Devil Dragon
Thunderbird
Cave Demons
Bigfoot

Disc 2 contains:
Oklahoma Octopus
Death Raptor
Swamp Creature
Megaconda
Hellhound
Mothman
Death Worm

My favorites include Bigfoot, Death Raptor and the Swamp Creature.

In the vein of Paranormal Activity, Blair Witch and (to an extent) Cloverfield, the Lost Tapes is another attempt to present "staged handfilmed" footage as if it were real. I first heard of this show from my mother who told me that it was based on true frightening accounts and included real video footage of legendary creatures. Unfortunately, I believe that much of the acclaim this series has found is because a majority of its fans believe that the video footage is either real or a recreation based on real events. Let me tell you that neither is true. How do I know? Because I wrote directly to Animal Planet.

According to Animal Planet, these episodes are based on the "possibility that these creatures exist." For example, there is a legend of Sasquatch roaming around parts of the US. Animal Planet's writers think of a way that "somebody" might come into contact with the creature if it existed. Then the writers determine what would be a feasible way that the animal would be captured on film if it "did" come into contact with somebody. The combination of this setting and a reason for it being filmed generates the 15 minute episode. The fact that the entire event is fictitious is not the real problem. The problem is that the level of acting varies from good to mediocre without ever being great. Most episodes are quite cheesy. Some of them never even show the creature in question. The camera becomes shaky, the actor drops the camera, and then you see them being dragged out of the view of the camera. If this were a student film, I'd say it was a very clever concept for a low budget venture into filmmaking. After spending $20, however, I'm not impressed enough by these works of fiction to say that I felt my money was well spent.

This is a great dvd set to own. It is the complete first season with some deleted scenes as bonus features. I bought this thinking that it might be the second season but it wasn't. This is the only reason why I'm giving it 4 out of 5 stars. If you love learning about different "hidden" creatures then this is a good item to own. I would recomend this to all my friends and family.

As a huge fan of shows such as supernatural, monster quest and other just like them I am finally thrilled to find a show that lets us SEE the monsters and what might happen if we came across a real one! This is a set of dvds, each show hosting a new monster that animal planet says "What if they were real" of course they're not saying they are but what if! and what if someone came across it these videos are what could have happened. I enjoyed them it was nice and in some cases kinda spooky to see them!

The episodes look staged and not very convincing to me. Kind like the overrated Blair Witch Project. I couldn't take it seriously, ok for entertainment I guess.

Kinda like that movie with the kids who go into the forest looking for that witch...You know the movie I'm talking about? The one with the kids all running, the camera is bouncing like crazy, spinning and the views constantly changing...It was great, my wife had to walk out because she got motion sickness. It's kinda like that but a bunch more stories.
