    Sykes isn’t solving any mysteries. He’s generating mysteries (Himalayan polar bear?!?) for others to solve.

    When one tests only the samples sent to one, one is examining only a small swatch of evidence. Science cautions against sweeping conclusions; it only “knows” what it hasn’t replaced with new knowledge yet.

    Kinda critical, that. I wish more scientists understood it.

    Spoiler Alert! Spoiler Alert!

    Well, guess nobody here needs that, huh?

    The real disservice Icon Films provides is the same outcome you always see when entertainment and science get in bed together. From what I gather, Sykes made a pact with Old Jack, and compromised himself in the eyes of many for this resulting tabloid-esque documentary, and those already aired in the U.K. Some of what transpired was completely foreseeable, but hey, live and learn, right?

    So, this show will be entertaining, if you already don’t know the content. But after you view it, remember that Sykes’ apparently has not told all he knows and there is still his peer-reviewed paper to be published. Read that, for obvious reasons, but also because there won’t be increasingly-frequent and increasingly-longer commercials inserted into it as you go.

    2 hours to hear the dubious claim of ancient polar bear? I think not….

    If this was fully documented evidence from an actual Bigfoot, they would be identifying just what Bigfoot really is…not trying to prove it’s actual existence. You cannot have actual, fully documented samples and not already have Bigfoot’s, or any other animal’s, existence recognized. The true sample does not come before the documented specimen, even an unknown one. If you cannot prove the samples are actually from what you’re looking to identify, then they are marginal at best and your resultant study will only yield marginal results – if any. Are there any samples unquestionably known to have come from an animal such as a Bigfoot? You know the answer to that question. I’m waiting for the news that this has happened. Everything else is speculation at best and quasi-science at worst.
