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
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?
