Boston Rob Mariano’s involvement in the program has already been featured here, here, and here. Remember, some people were upset because the early images of him shown were without a shirt.

Watch the investigators and skeptics look at maps and casts and use high-tech equipment. Haven’t we been here before? Okay, I’ll be reserving my critique until after the program is screened.

The episode was filmed over a weekend with Bigfooter Autumn Williams (above, right).

Give the guy some love. He is bringing more cryptozoology to television, after all. I look forward to watching for your, the Cryptomundo readers’ reviews and comments about the Bigfoot program.

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.

    Filmed over a weekend? Glad to see they are leaving no stone unturned…

    “Where have you gone, Leonard Nimoy? A nation turns it lonely eyes to you…”

    Apologies to Paul Simon.

  2. WVBIG_2006 responds:

    I have two comments:

    1)I wonder how long it will take for someone to play the “No conclusive DNA results” card.

    2)I’m glad to see Dr. Fahrenbach is involved.

  3. prophet54 responds:

    I watched the first episode of the series, which was where the team investigated Voodoo. It was entertaining, but short on facts. Also have viewed their webisode on the road to hell. Again, slightly entertaining to me because I have knowledge of the area. So overall, the show seems to be entertaining, but we’ll have to see if they come up with any concrete evidence.

  4. WVBIG_2006 responds:

    prophet54 says: “we’ll have to see if they come up with any concrete evidence” What exactly would you consider concrete evidence?

  5. TomG responds:

    Wow! A whole weekend! Not much could have escaped their gaze investing THAT much time!

    It reminds me of when I was stationed in Europe. Some guys got to go to the French Commando School. They got teased a great deal:

    (using your best Inspector Clouseau accent)
    “Ze French Commando School . . . ze hardest weekend of my life.”

    I was going to watch it until the length of the “expedition” was revealed.

  6. cabochris responds:

    Bet they can’t leave the Soap out of the Opera!

  7. Berkastler responds:

    Most everything the Sci-Fi channel makes is low-budget and half-baked. This will be no different.

  8. scotto responds:

    All I have to say, is that is one fine lookin babe in the bottom pic. Yeah!

  9. robzilla responds:

    Over a weekend? Wow such dedication.

  10. stillserchin responds:

    The Sci-Fi Channel’s credulity seems to be lacking at times. Perhaps we’ll see ECW”s “The Big Show” in disguise a.k.a “Bigfoot.”

  11. shovethenos responds:

    You could probably do 20+ episodes on the various cryptid hominids if you researched things correctly and broke things into pieces. It doesn’t sound like this was planned very well.

  12. WVBIG_2006 responds:

    Berkastler says: “Most everything the Sci-Fi channel makes is low-budget and half-baked. This will be no different” I disagree. Granted. The recent Bigfoot movie on Sci-Fi was pretty bad. But “Taken” I’m sure had a pretty big budget considering it was produced by Steven Spielberg, & it was the best miniseries or movie I have ever seen in my life! “Ghost Hunters” is also very good & also educational for people who may think they are experiencing paranormal activity.

    I’m not sure about the resident skeptic of the cast of “Sci-Fi Investigates” But the rest of them all have regular jobs & can’t stay on an expedition for as long as they want to.

    I’m looking forward to watching it on Wednesday night.

  13. CryptoInformant responds:

    It’s called taking vacation time from your regular job to go on an in-depth expedition. In short, it’s called planning.

  14. JMarlowe responds:

    Gee a whole weekend. Next they will say they went a whole 100 feet into the woods.

  15. WVBIG_2006 responds:

    CryptoInformant says: “It’s called taking vacation time from your regular job to go on an in-depth expedition. In short, it’s called planning” Yes. Taking a minimum of two weeks would definitely be the way to go if they were doing a one time Bigfoot documentary like “Sasquatch Oddyssey”, “Bigfootville”, Bigfoot: Man or Beast?”, etc… But this is only one episode of a weekly tv series about all kinds of mysteries.

  16. sschaper responds:

    Autumn has changed her hairstyle.

    That is about the only info I think we’ll get from this show. 🙁

  17. cor2879 responds:

    If Autumn is in this episode I’ll be watching!

  18. WVBIG_2006 responds:

    What a joke!!! Where to begin?

    1)Since when is the ’96 Memorial Day footage one of the best pieces of Bigfoot film? I thought it was proven to be a hoax months ago.

    2)No mention of the Freeman film at all.

    3) Where would bigfoot develop a taste for beef liver? I don’t know of a single report of a bigfoot killing a cow or feeding on a dead cow.

    4)Why weren’t fish & berries also used as bait?

    5)There was only one alleged bigfoot vocalization used to attempt to call one in. Which may have been lucky for the investigators since apparently they were unarmed & nobody knows for sure what any of these vocalizations mean. If, in fact, they are really bigfoot vocalizations. My personal opinion is that for an unarmed expedition party to broadcast these vocalizations, especially in the dark, is wreckless & foolish.

    I was very disappointed in this documentary. Clearly none of the investigators did any research on their own before where the episode begins. If they had, they surely would’ve asked about the alleged bigfoot scat specimens that have been collected over the years.

    They also probably would’ve asked about other films such as the Freeman film.

    I didn’t see it. I missed it. I’m sorry. I’m a failure.

Sorry. Comments have been closed.
