It's with great disgust that I write this.
As one who has witnessed the fantastic, I waited with great anticipation for the UFO Hunter's episode on the "Stephenville Lights" case. What I watched was a complete fumble of the "UFO football” . . . completely out of bounds, and just out of the stadium!

Just got done watching the episode on youtube. Personally I don't have too many gripes with it. In my opinion, the biggest thing is Bill. The moment everyone else says, well doesn't appear to be an ordinary aircraft, he screams ALIENS! Makes it seem like I'm watching one of those stupid loop videos on YTMND.

OK.. I can understand how the triangulation of the different witnesses and the UFO being a major piece of the puzzle. But there are other pieces that seem to get ignored here. Why didn't they try and duplicate the light beam scenario. I thought that was not only really interesting (considering that they had some home-shot video footage to accompany), but it was the only thing that I felt would've possibly saved this episode's already blackened eye. We never heard if tests were done to see how far off the ground the beam resided over. We didn't hear anything about the seconds prior to when the Deer all scatter before the beam hits. They spoke about the missing animals and duck's beaks floating in the water.. I'd like to have seen those photos or sketches... What about how many reports were called into the neighboring police stations and military complexes? And the list goes on and on, in why didn't they do this or that.. Yes I know it's only a 45 minute show (after you throw in 15 minutes worth of commercials), but please.. we need some real stimulation here.
Pat Uskert with his random telephone calls to the airbase..... too funny (sorry Pat, I liked you better from your past work).
It just seems to me that they could step this show up a bit. I thought Richard Dolan's "Sci-Fi Investigates" was fairly entertaining and informative. The interaction was delivered smoothly and real. This shows attempts at being pretentious and ends up being so badly staged that it's painful to watch...
Of course on the other side of the fence.. If someone had no clue about ufology, then they may be mildly entertained..

I know Ricky Sorrells personally. He chose not to be part of this show, so that part isn't the History Channel's fault. He's still fearful about going public and being on camera after the phone call he got and the low jet/helicopter fly overs among other reasons.
It is a shame because I believe Ricky is telling the truth 100%. He's a really genuine solid stand up guy. Plus what he saw in day light is the tip of the iceberg as far as all the sightings go. Ricky is the nuts and bolts of the entire event as far as I'm concerned and what he saw was not 'ours'.
