Very Interesting, and a Little Convincing
on January 7, 2014
I really like this show, and it's definitely better than 'Finding Bigfoot', even if it is faked. I have all of Season 1 recorded on my DVR, and I can't wait for it to come out on DVD, and I really can't wait for Season 2. For Those of You Who Haven't Seen the Show: It's about a real team of investigators (Trapper, Buck, Huckleberry, Jeff, Willie, and Wild Bill), and their organization (A.I.M.S. [Appalachian Investigators of Mysterious Sightings]), and how they search for, and try (and sometimes do) trap mysterious creatures in Appalachia. The creatures they search for actually have been seen, or reportedly seen, and have a historical background, so it all seems legit, and they produce valid proof for these creatures. In 'The Devil Dog of Logan County', they capture three Devil Dogs; in 'The Mothman of Mason County' they catch the Mothman on camera, twice (and for those of you who are skeptical, one thing: it's hard to animate black and white footage, and have it look real); in 'The Wolfman of Wolfe County', they catch it on thermal, get a picture, get tracks, and hear howls. These guys looking for these creatures are real Backwoods Americans, and they ain't stupid: they carry shotguns, .30-06s, and .22s with 'em out in the woods, and they don't take any chances on their night investigations. The witnesses aren't idiots either, cause they actually take pictures and videos when they see these things. Faked or not, it's quite an interesting show. The most convincing episodes are 'The Mothman of Mason County', 'The Wolfman of Wolfe County', 'The Devil Dog of Logan County', and 'The Grassman of Perry County'. In 'The Grassman' episode, this show produces more in one episode than 'Finding Bigfoot' did in 4 Seasons; they say that the Grassman is a cousin of Bigfoot, and they catch a picture of it, and a video, and howls. I like it, and would recommend that anyone unsatisfied with other reality shows, or 'creature-finding' shows check this out. 'When Folklore Bites Back, and Leaves a Trail of Proof, One Team of Native West Virginian Sons Seek the Truth.'
