Mysterious Encounters

Lately, I have been watching a show on the OLN TV network. It is called Mysterious Encounters. This show exclusively deals with Sasquatch/Bigfoot related sightings across the country. The team, lead by Autumn Williams, drives around the country in their RV and stakes out areas that are purported to have Bigfoot-type sightings.

If you've seen the show, you know that some of the production values are lacking. There is some pretty cheesy music too. However, what it lacks in those categories, it makes up for it in others.

While watching the show, I wasn't even aware that some of the areas the team investigated had Bigfoot sightings. Such as New York State, as well as a few episodes in Oklahoma and Texas. The main thing that impresses me about the show is the technology they use in their investigations. A lot of high-end infrared cameras, motion-sensor cameras, cameras attached to a remote-controlled blimp, among other snazzy gadgets. Obviously there is some money going into these investigations.

Even with all of those gadgets, their investigations always come up inconclusive and the team usually leaves with little to no evidence at all that an unknown primate may be in the area. Still, the show is entertaining and I really dig it. My Tivo is set to record any episode that comes on.

So, check out the show. If you are even remotely interested in unknown primates or the Bigfoot phenomena, I think you will really like it.
