Watch a preview of Missing in Alaska, premiering July 24 at 10/9c on HISTORY.

The Alaska Triangle, a region in northwest Alaska, has more unsolved missing person cases than anywhere else in the world. Over 20,000 people have vanished in the past 50 years alone. Who or what’s behind these cases is unknown. Some believe it’s the work of local predators or simply the rugged, dangerous terrain, but legends thrive in Alaska, and the ominous history of disappearances in the area has drawn comparisons to the Bermuda Triangle. Working together with local experts and eyewitnesses, our team of investigators will go case-by-case to gather evidence, conduct tests, examine history and explore local myths to determine the most viable explanation for the disappearances, all while trying to understand the sinister mystery that is the Alaska Triangle.

    Okay, so is this a real documentary or just another bunch of nonsense like I started watching last weekend?

    Sunday I was flipping channels and settled on a History Channel show called the Devil’s Graveyard that on the surface looked like a documentary, but as it progressed it became pretty clear it was another piece of crap like Mermaids and the nonsense on Megalodon (even though those were perpetrated by Animal Planet and Discovery). It took a theory, threw in Ivan Sanderson’s name and proceeded to spew a whole lot of mumbo jumbo claiming that aliens were intent on ending the world with their evil schemes. Yeah–that’s what I thought too.

    I don’t like those shows simply because they portray themselves as real documentaries (and just because they flash a disclaimer at the beginning and end in a couple of microseconds doesn’t count), when in fact it’s just two hours of hokum.

    I wouldn’t mind if they would just be up front that the shows are akin to a horror movie (though with the special effects it’s more like a syfy movie of the week), but it genuinely ticks me off that they’re trying to suck in a viewer.

    Granted, as I said, watching for a little while you can usually tell–the Devil’s Graveyard nonsense gave itself away. The pseudo-science involved could only come from script writers that showed how little they really knew about anything, but it’s the principle of the thing that bugs me.

    It also bothers me that channels like Discovery and History and Animal Planet will show suspect stuff like that when it seems to me that the entire cornerstone of their programming (well it used to be) was in being factual. However, it seems that all of those channels have gone down the pseudo-reality hole of programming and I have begun spending less and less time on said channels and actually looking at the shows being offered to see if what they’re showing is legit or just horse . . . you know what, just to lure me in.

    And it also ticks me off because I think it makes cryptozoology and other fringe topics look like crackpot endeavors. It takes away the legitimacy–I feel like we’re being made fun of.

    Whew. I feel better (not really, but it will have to do since I don’t have History Channel execs to go off on). Now, does anyone know whether this is a legit program or just the latest pseudo-science, hodge podge of petty horror based on rumor and flat out lies?
