Last night was episode one of this new series on the History channel. Getting ready to watch the first installment and will post my thoughts and comments later this morning.


Anchored by never-before-seen footage of the ranch and what it contains, the series will feature a team of scientists and experts who will conduct a daring and thorough search of this infamous 512-acre property located in Utah’s Uinta Basin in an attempt to find out the “who?” “what?” and “why?” behind more than 200 years of UFO SIGHTINGS, bizarre animal mutilations and paranormal related mysteries. Utilizing the latest in cutting edge technology from lasers and ground-penetrating radar to drone thermography, and more, the team will apply hard science and make shocking discoveries while going further and risking more than anyone has done on the ranch before.

Beginning in the 1950s, Skinwalker Ranch and the area around it has been referred to as “UFO alley,” where numerous anomalous events and strange activity have received worldwide media attention. Since then, the area has been the site of decades of study, some clandestinely funded by the government. In 1996, the property was purchased by billionaire businessman and UFO enthusiast, Robert Bigelow, who used it to conduct his own experiments into the study of the ranch and its other-worldly connections. His findings were never shared with the public. Three years ago, the property was sold to a new owner who is now leading this team in a new investigation and, for the first time in history, allowing television cameras to document their shocking discoveries.

I woke up this morning to a note left for me by the hubs informing me of this series, so I will be finding it this evening.
God bless that man- he knows what I like!

A good choice to dull the virus tedium. A proper ATS topic.

If it's anything like the other garbage that's on History Channel these days, I wouldn't waste my time.

Honestly, not super impressed yet. The show is scripted a little to "Oak Islandy."

The "formula" follows with all the appropriate personality "types:" tha Skeptic, The No nonsense gruff security, the "just the facts scientist," etc...

Its like watching Oak Island at Skin Walker so far, just like World War 2 Gold..

We have watched Oak Island for years, but WILL NOT view a 3rd iteration of this format.

Also, the "rich financier" with his phallic insecurity" reving his Lambo around...just frickin horrible insult to your intelligence.

So, a hotshot physicist, you’ve seen him on Ancient Aliens, comes to the ranch to check it out.

Hears the magic wolf tale and sees a dead cow and some excess radiation and gets a little excited and wants to dig.

The head of security says no way are you digging…on Skinwalker ranch buddy!

I'll stop it at that. It got a little interesting in the end and left the watcher waiting for the next episode.

Its a manipulated show in the vein of Curse of Oak Island. In fact, this physicist was on Oak Island.

Probably embarrassed he spent exorbitant amounts of money on a giant nothing-burger.

Most of the shows on HC are incestuous....meaning the personalities migrate from show to show. Comments are accurate that the show came across as very scripted...almost predictable. I initially got excited that SOMEONE SOMEWHERE was going to actually follow Scientific Method and do some serious research. Imagine my disappointment when that appears to have gotten "canned" based upon superstition and/or scripted drama...yet future series clips clearly show a drill going into the ground....really?

I will probably continue to watch just out of curiosity, but be prepared that the show really is an insult to your intelligence.

Oh yeah, someone pointed out the Lambo and how they had to come across as flashy (not to mention TONE DEAF in our current social environment), but also when all the security guys "greeted" the helicopter while being armed to the teeth...again, really??? **insert eye roll here**

I am not familiar with Oak Island or the Astrophysicist involved, and as someone who found the subject matter interesting I very much enjoyed the first installment. First time cameras have supposedly been okayed on the ranch. I was impressed by the images of the mesa which lit up in different sections at night as well as the photos of light objects in the sky some moving some stationary....and the story of the one team member who did some digging and was VERY apprehensive about any future digging based in the bad experience he had with the unexplained goose egg on his head was mildly interesting....I noted the comments from the Astrophysicist about the high levels of micro radiation in different areas which seemed to move around, and then the theory that the Ranch was the victim of fallout from possible nuclear testing in Nevada from the 50's and 60's......As for entertaining, it definitely did that. An interesting distraction for sure from the virus news we endure each and every day now. You have to admit, there have been SO many strange things that have happened here. I plan on watching this, and am eager to see what was in the box they opened up at the end of this first installment.

Why bother? This was filmed in the middle of last year. If they found anything significant, we'd have heard about it already.

Always take "evidence" on shows like this with a grain of salt.... It is absolutely possible that they faked the mesa footage themselves for the purposes of being used in a show. I'm sure the owner was well aware of the cash cow that Oak Island has created for the Laginas/HC and could have intended to repeat that success from the very moment he purchased the ranch.

Always have to be skeptical when it comes to entertainment...

Myself, I didn't feel it insulted my intelligence. I found it interesting high entertainment about a very interesting subject matter, but your opinion is respected none the less.

Yeah, total hokum with the security guy..."no digging!"

alrighty then...no point in the rest of the season....

Lol, building suspense over the fear of digging holes!!!! lest they unleash the anger of the "Giant Wolf!" apparently it doesnt want folks to find where it hid its bone.

Hey, nothing against your excellent OP. Great topic, I guess its just some level of disappointment due to higher expectations.

Have there ever been any evidence that suggest there is something to this "skinwalker ranch"
Or is just a bunch of ghost stories to scare the children.

I completely respect your opinion, as well... My point is that the show could have easily gained a great audience based upon the subject matter alone and didn't need the clearly scripted "suspense" thrown in for pure entertainment value.

Plenty of substance, but the Actual facts Usually get turned into ghost stories.

I've been talking with the new owner, Brandon, fairly frequently.
There will be some pretty interesting analysis coming to light.

Well please indicate to him how silly he looks showing off in his super car. It just ruined so much of the initial story, particularly for people not as informed.
