Nat Geo's new series UFO chasers promises to shed new light on the subject. Unfortunately after watching the first two espisodes you still leave with an empty feeling just like all the other shows on the subject. I want to know the truth as bad as anyone, but sometimes I think networks take advantage of the interest in order to produce shows that their main goal is to capture market share and not really solve the problem.

Take ancient aliens, they show some controversial subjects that make you stop and think but there again they never find any artifacts left behind by the builders that would shed a clue as to how they constructed those relics and buildings. Maybe I'm all wrong but it seems like at the end of the day we haven't learned anything more than we knew the day before.

I was extremely disappointed with this new show as well. Watching it reminded me of "Ghost Hunters" and "Fact or Faked..." all rolled into one...

The Area 51 show that aired before these was way more entertaining...

None that we're ever going to know about. The "mystery" MUST remain a mystery.

You nailed it right on the head. I was very disappointed and it is exactly like "Ghost Hunters" and the other shows that they air. They use the night vision way too much and the subject matter has no substance whatsoever. This show will last about 6 episodes and will hit the re-run trail forever.

Just once I would like to see something creative and compelling.

I will say the people of Dublin, Texas and Stephensville were very credible and seemed to really believe they saw something unusual.

I'm disappointed to see James Fox (who I used to respect greatly as a UFO researcher) act on this show.

The footage they captured near the end of the first episode was cool though.

The show is earth shatteringly horrible not just bad.

There's a difference between 'bad' and 'so earth shatteringly horrible it makes the angels scream in terror as they violently rip their heads off, their blood spraying into the faces of a thousand sweet innocent horrified children, who will forever have those terrible images burned into their tiny little minds'.

Chasing UFOs is the latter.

God, this Chasing UFOs stuff screams utter #e all over the place. All we got here is a hot chick looking reeeal nice & tight while pretending to have a genuine interest in UFOs and taping stupid stuff that is going to be deemed very mysterious, unexplainable and important. Seducing the Forever Alone UFO buffs...

Having James Fox in such a ridiculous action sequence [trailer; opening sequence repeated] instantly results in a facepalm reaction. Jeez, maybe this is the ultimate UFO disinfo operation: make it look like entertainment and entertainment only. all that.

In the end it seems the only thing we'll have to look forward to in future UFO shows is not interesting round objects in the sky, but interesting round objects under the hostess' shirt bouncing around chasing satellites...

Watched the premiere and now watching the second one.

I was wrong.

This is WAY stupider than Finding Bigfoot.

Watching these morons stumbling around doing soil surveys (!) of dubious cases (for instance, one reported by a silly paranormal club leader who obviously believes EVERYTHING) is funny enough. That they do it AT NIGHT is comedy gold.

Unimaginably silly, embarrassing and insulting to any viewer watching for any reason other that the unintentional humor.

What the HELL was that???

In one of the searches they were searching the soil looking for radioactivity from nuclear powered crafts, (I think I'm correct on that, but feel free to correct me), if the UFO's were extraterrestrials, obviously there are much more advanced than we are, so do they really think they would use nuclear power? It seems they would use some other means of energy than we know of.

What!? You mean these networks are looking to exploit a mystery and their viewers in order to make money? And that it's not about a slow, methodical disclosure!?!

Why sir, that is absurd!

Yea it was a stupid show, I quit watching about the time they started romping around in the forest scaring each other about wild boar. I guess I didn't see the first one, I thought that was it.

This show probably did more to discredit any serious study of UFOs more than any scientist and his opinion ever could.

Yea it was. Loved all those declassified pics of early Area 51, if they were even legitimate. Also it did a good job of presenting both sides of the coin I thought.

At first I thought this show might be pretty good after initial skepticism based on the cheesy trailer. I remember seeing the Mufon show (I forgot what it was called. There were only a few episodes) about the Stephenville UFOs (which, like the Phoenix Lights incident, seemed to be comprised of two seperate events, one of which was military jets dropping flares). Chasing UFOs seemed promising at first until they showed a 2 second clip of one of the videos a witness shot of the UFO that is clearly a jet dropping flares and tried to pass it off as something unknown. From there it was just downhill. The show was too goofy for me. It really seemed like a mixture of Destination Truth (without the witty, funny Josh Gates) and Ghost Hunters.

Why do we need those stupid face-pointing cameras? I want to see what's in the sky, not the host's face on nightvision cam as they run from wild boars in the middle of the woods at night.

And on that note, why did they need to go out in the middle of the freaking woods to sky watch? I mean, I was sitting there wondering what the hell was going on and what any of this had to do with UFOs. Also the constant "WHAT THE *BLEEP* WAS THAT?! HOLY *BLEEP!* THAT'S A *BLEEPING* UFO!" got old after about two seconds. Made it sound like one of those terrible "reality" shows like Operation Repo on TruTV.

The second episode was only slightly more interesting. That secret tunnel in the mountain was intriguing, but the whole part where Ryder was sneaking around the airport and being chased seemed completely fake and staged. As tight as airport security is these days with all of the TERRORISM threats, they would have all been thrown in jail if the security guys weren't in on it.

It got worse when they decided to search for evidence of a crashed triangle UFO on a hillside under cover of night (why? So TPTB won't see you snooping around?). Ah, but the night provided no cover, as apparently the goverment/men in black found them anyway and was spying on them! (Again, that whole part with the white vehicle also seemed staged).

The only interesting thing out of both episodes was the three seconds of footage they showed from that guy who claimed to have filmed the military capturing or repairing a triangular craft that crashed on a nearby hill. Does anyone know the back story behind that footage? Has it been debunked? Is it longer or was that all there was to it?

PLEASE DON'T! In-fact Please treat every MSM source as biased information. There is no free press anymore only corporate controlled media, same stories same BS on every channel. On the topic of UFO's pick up a book and do some homework. Critical thinking is the only way to sort this mess out. Step away from the remote and pick up a book maybe, UFOs: Generals, Pilots and Government Officials Go On the Record by lestle Kean, she was the first journalist to cover the COMETA report. Don't know what that is? please search for the English translation on Google for some light reading... search ATS for even more info. Why because there is no need to question the fact anymore, less time figuring it out and more time trying to answer the real question.

God (by which ever name you call him) help us should one day the most powerful propoganda machine on this godless earth land into the wrong hands.

You will never hear the truth, not from MSM. You believe what THEY want you to believe. Thats it.

Fox's documentaries reveal him to be simply another UFO believer uninterested in facts. For instance, "I Know What I Saw" begins with his account of the Phoenix lights. This case has had problems from the beginning and many folks now recognize that it almost certainly was completely prosaic. Fox doesn't even consider any of the virtually ironclad disconfirmations of what some of the witnesses claim.

In a move quite reminiscent of the dumbassery of "Chasing UFO's", Fox shows a completely unrelated video from years before in the middle of his Phoenix story as though it is somehow corroborating.

Hilariously, the witness accounts in "I Know What I Saw" contradict each other in fundamental ways which betray the title of the film with devastating (if unintentional) effectiveness. Of course witness accounts are going to differ on details. What Fox is unwilling to consider (even in the face of very good evidence) is that his witnesses might just be wrong.

The "Chasing UFOs" shows one aspect of the equation that zealots like Fox usually like to hide: that some of the witnesses are highly suspect. But due to the jaded and bargain basement sensibilities of the producers (and their complete disdain for the viewer), the show plays up the idiosyncrasies of the witnesses. For instance, one woman requires her face to be hidden in the interview. She claims that THEY are outside her house and follow her around due to some #ty forgotten video she shot years ago. Honey, if they know where you are, how does hiding your face help?

Another witness takes the Chasing UFOs buffoons to his personal shrine to the paranormal--filled with action figures from the X-files, bigfoot, etc. It is obvious that there is not much the guy does NOT believe. And yet he is their star witness.

I have little doubt that Fox would have hidden these details from viewers in one of his documentaries. In that sense Chasing UFOs may be more honest than Fox's other work!

I learned more about wild boars in Texas from the first episode then UFOs
the footage they found at the end was pretty cool though except the real camera guy could have tried to shoot it too, not just the chick
