Happy St. Patrick’s Day ~ DT vs MQ

Posted by: Loren Coleman on March 16th, 2010

Tired of watching Leprechaun, Leprechaun 2, Leprechaun 3, and Leprechaun 4 for St. Patrick’s Day? You have some choices this year on Wednesday.

Okay, most of the programming this week is scheduled so, if you had the time, you could watch SyFy’s “Destination Truth” and History’s “MonsterQuest” throughout Tuesday and Wednesday, in alternate hours. But I had to pretend there was an intentional St. Patrick’s Day smackdown in all of this, because it feels that way.

Don’t forget, for every hour of DT, half of the programming is usually ghost stories and the other half is cryptid-related. MQ sticks to one cryptozoological topic, usually, under one umbrella.

DT begins its new season this Wednesday with “Ghosts of Masada/The Leprechuan,” and if it is like the “Iceland Elves,” Ryder will be scared, looking very “Blair Witch-like,” and Josh will crack some good Irish Little People jokes. (Yes, Josh, I thought the “elf off” was quite humorous.)

Meanwhile, MQ returns to one of its most successfully done topics, Sasquatch, and screens its second-to-last episode this Wednesday. (See my longer posting, with videos and images about the “Sierra Sasquatch” episode elsewhere on Cryptomundo.)

On Monday, March 15, DT showed four straight hours of reruns. They are gearing up for their new series. Josh is funny, and I wish them luck. For MQ, I feel joy that they were able to do so much, and yet sad to see them go.

Here are the DT programs scheduled for Tuesday and Wednesday, all times are Eastern:

Allegedly, History may pre-broadcast some parts of “America’s Wolfman” on YouTube this week.

Coming soon, MonsterQuest is generously donating some of the series’ props to the International Cryptozoology Museum, for public display. Can the museum get anything from “Destination Truth”? Stay tuned. More details later.

    I am a big fan of both shows, but neither are perfect. I love “Destination Truth”. I love the humor Josh brings to it, I love looking at Jael and for the most part, they seem to turn up more exciting results than “Monsterquest” does. What I don’t like, is the ghost stories.
    I also love “Monsterquest”. I love its more scientific approach and they way it shows tons of backstories and possible alternate explainations of what the creatures might be. What I hate, is when they go off topic and create entire shows about non-cryptid species like sharks, bees, dogs and other common animals. These shows belong on Animal Planet and are subjects that should never be covered by a show called “Monsterquest”. It’s like false advertising.
    My favorite episodes from either show, is when they cover lake cryptids. I am still waiting to see episodes dealing with “Memphre” in Quebec, “The Tianchi Monster” and the “Zhangke River Monster” in China, “Selma” in Sweden, “Illie” in Alaska, “Tahoe Tessie” of California and “Brosnie” and “The Vholhov River Monster” in Russia. I would also love for the “Monsterquest” team to visit Lake Kanas in Japan. DT went there and saw some very interesting things that need more explaination.
