For those who do not know, Monster Quest is a show on the History Channel that delves into the world of unknown crytids. The show takes the hour to
look into physical evidence to prove the existence of such creatures.
The best part of the show is the individual cases of the witnesses and reenactments of the experiences and encounters of the week's creature
featured. Most of the witnesses seem very reliable and quite sure of what they saw.
The main problem of the show is each episode seems to promise some type of conclusive evidence, and then such evidence peters out in the end. The best
example of that is from the 2 hour episode on the Abominable Snowman. After sitting through two hours, only one footprint was deemed to possibly be
unknown. The prints in the snow were melted tracks of deer and other animals. The supposed head of the yeti turned out to be a yak like animal.
Another words, no real conclusions.
In a nutshell, last nights episode was the same. The "Gable Film" footage of the so called werewolf was the focus for the main evidence, along with
a huge paw print. Well, the paw print turned out to be a mud print of a wolf, and the deep mud itself made it look much larger than it was. The Gable
film turned out to be a hoax. That probably was the most interesting part of it, but when they showed it, it did look like a man was crawling in a
suit. No other evidence other than the reenactments was shown.
Maybe it is too much to want some real DNA, or other evidence to show that a cryptid really does exist. But I am getting more tired each episode with
the teasers that I will actually learn something I didn't already know from the books of researchers out there.
