Review: Finding Bigfoot 3-4-12
This week, the team heads to the Hoosier State of Indiana to investigate a piece of footage alleged to be a Sasquatch. The footage was apparently taken in the Indiana Dunes area and shows something, either a Sasquatch or a human in a suit. They apparently find a hotspot in Morgan Monroe State Forest. Cliff has doubts about the authenticity of the footage, but does want to check it out. Ranae thinks it looks like a person in a suit. The family has asked for anonymity, so they have their faces blurred out on TV. They put Bobo in the same position as the alleged Sasquatch, and Bobo looks bigger. Matt does think it is a human and not a Sasquatch. The general consensus of the team is it is a person in a suit, but Cliff believes that the people who took the footage were not in on the hoax. Night operations commence in the State Park, and they do calls, to which they get a response, possibly of a coyote or a wolf. It was a coyote according to the team members. Ranae and Bobo attempt some woodknocking, with no success. The group decides to head to southern Indiana because, in Bobo's words, "Northern Indiana sucked." In Bloomington, they hold a town hall meeting where they get several accounts. Cliff decides to spend a few nights in the woods alone. Cliff does some 'Squatching in a cemetery (which is a good idea considering there have been sightings in cemeteries). He does woodknocking and hears coyotes. He says that is a good sign because that means the food is nearby. The rest of the team goes to meet with the witnesses who claim to have seen Sasquatches in the area. Bobo meets with a hunter who had a sighting, and recreates the sighting for the hunter, who says what he saw was 9 feet tall and jumped a good distance. Bobo is convinced the fellow is telling the truth. Matt and Ranae go to meet with a witness who saw a Sasquatch breaking a freshwater clam open with a rock. The witness Matt and Ranae meet with says what he saw was about 6 1/2-7 feet tall. Ranae inserts her opinion into it and says she does not think it was a Sasquatch that the fellow saw, but might have been a bear. The other three team members other than Cliff meet with a father and daughter who say they saw a Sasquatch. The team does more night operations, where they set off fireworks, which I am not so sure is a good idea, but what do I know? Their results are...well, interesting to say the least. All in all, not too bad an episode this week. I would probably give it about a 4 out of 5 stars. Next week is the Season Finale where they head to Utah, 10:00 EST/9:00 Central on Animal Planet.
