Destination Truth: Season 5 Premiere Tonight!

Posted by: Loren Coleman on July 10th, 2012

Josh Gates is back and is it my imagination or not, but has his crew of folks grown during the break?

Josh is an absolute favorite of the women viewers, so you’re going to see lots of male energy in this program. Still, as Josh once told me, he loves the warm climes and the short exotic ladies, so look for more shows in places meeting Josh’s location criteria. The bouncing green screen shots are back too, and some cryptids even slip into the episodes.

As in the past, the first program of a new season promises a centerpiece drama (even if we do know that no new species has been verified), so this initial season five opening on the Vietnamese ape reports could be a good one.

Welcome back Josh.

Loren Coleman About Loren Coleman
Loren Coleman is one of the world’s leading cryptozoologists, some say “the” leading living cryptozoologist. Certainly, he is acknowledged as the current living American researcher and writer who has most popularized cryptozoology in the late 20th and early 21st centuries. Starting his fieldwork and investigations in 1960, after traveling and trekking extensively in pursuit of cryptozoological mysteries, Coleman began writing to share his experiences in 1969. An honorary member of Ivan T. Sanderson’s Society for the Investigation of the Unexplained in the 1970s, Coleman has been bestowed with similar honorary memberships of the North Idaho College Cryptozoology Club in 1983, and in subsequent years, that of the British Columbia Scientific Cryptozoology Club, CryptoSafari International, and other international organizations. He was also a Life Member and Benefactor of the International Society of Cryptozoology (now-defunct). Loren Coleman’s daily blog, as a member of the Cryptomundo Team, served as an ongoing avenue of communication for the ever-growing body of cryptozoo news from 2005 through 2013. He returned as an infrequent contributor beginning Halloween week of 2015. Coleman is the founder in 2003, and current director of the International Cryptozoology Museum in Portland, Maine.

    Love Josh Gates and his team. If they don’t find anything or if they do like in Nepal (footprint), it’s still a good entertaining show with Josh being funny! 🙂

  2. dconstrukt responds:

    looks really interesting…. love how they edit this stuff to keep you totally hooked.

    It’d be cool if they actually GOT some type of proof in the series. Most of the episodes are identical at times… they’re out there but weather messes things up and they usually never find anything.

    Still think its pretty damn cool though. 🙂

  3. muircertach responds:

    Love this show. Glad its back.

  4. MountDesertIslander responds:

    Josh probably has the best of all the Syfy reality shows. There was great chemistry between he and Jael Del Pardo. I hope they can recapture some of that with his new crew.

  5. Novelhawk responds:

    This is my number 1 favorite show on television for many reasons, not the least of which is that they don’t take themselves too seriously. The evidence is sometimes there and sometimes not, but Josh seems to be quick to ignore so-so evidence. Great show! Here’s hoping it is more than 5 episodes this season.

    I just wish shows like this could be stretched to an hour per location. I don’t mind going a whole block in between commercials without anything “exciting” happening. I don’t watch for the mysterious roar or heat blob on the FLIR, I watch for the possible evidence they can find and the adventure of their efforts.

  6. William Pora via Facebook responds:


    dont we have enough “bump in the night” shows already?

  7. etheral responds:

    I love the show and always watch it, but my wife affectionately calls it “Destination: Don’t Find S**t” lol

  8. dconstrukt responds:

    ya… josh and crew are pretty funny at times… it makes you more at ease like ‘hey, these guys are like me… cracking jokes at stuff’ vs the stiff “tv personality”.

    looks like they DID find something last night…. tracks…. and were chasing something.

    pretty cool.

  9. bgibbons responds:

    So they are running around at night, stumbling about in rough terrain, shouting at the tops of their voices, panning their flash lights all over the place, then expect to find a shy, elusive animal?

    It might make for good TV, but its awful research methodology.

  10. CDC responds:

    Saw the show last night.

    You know, its amazing, there is so little actual evidence of a bigfoot type creature anywhere in the world, and when some “actual evidence” is found, in this case a series of footprint, this site and other crypto site say so little about it.

    The footprint cast was examined by Dr Jeff Meldrum and he claimed it to be a significant find…yet NOTHING here about it.

    I guess 40 year old second hand stories are more important here.

  11. Craig Woolheater responds:


    The show aired less than 24 hours ago. I personally recorded it on my DVR, but haven’t had a chance to watch it yet.

    How about instead of complaining about nobody here on Cryptomundo talking about the “actual evidence” found on the show, you start the discussion about the evidence?

    Nobody likes a complainer…
