Review: Finding Bigfoot 1-22-12
The team ventures to the Canadian Rockies, where they investigate a piece of footage from Todd Standing which Bobo seems convinced by, but the rest of the team thinks it is a hoax. (Actually, Cliff thinks it is ambiguous). Bobo recreates the footage as best he can, but the comparison seems to be a bit inconclusive. Going into night investigations, the team splits up, with Matt and Cliff on one team, and Bobo and Ranae on the other. Matt and Bobo each do calls, but get no response. Bobo believes he sees eyeshine and uses a thermal imager to scan the area, but sees nothing. It turns out to be a reflector. The team decides to head back to base camp after a fruitless night. The team is in a valley which is 20 miles long, and they want to continue to work that valley to see what they get. They leave Matt out there alone. The rest of the team goes to meet with the indigenous tribe where they hope to get a blessing and maybe some insight. Meanwhile Matt is alone in the wilderness (except for the camera crew) and searches the area. A town hall meeting is scheduled in Camp Horizon. Cliff and Ranae go to meet with a witness who claims to have seen a Sasquatch jump across a trail. Ranae attempts to recreate it, but the witness says that Ranae does not even come close. Meanwhile, Matt is pursuing solo night investigations. He is actually doing the investigations at dawn, which he figures is the right time for possible interactions. Matt does a howl, which echoes through the valley, but only gets a pack of coyotes. Bobo meets with another witness, a hunter who apparently had something urinate on his tent one night. The three go to pick up Matt and go to meet with two more witnesses. The witnesses apparently hear strange growls. The team does more night investigations, and find...well, I won't spoil it for you. All in all, kind of a disappointing episode, a 3 out of 5 stars. Next week, the team heads to Ohio, 10:00 Eastern/9:00 Central. Check local listings for time and channel.
