Review: Finding Bigfoot 1-20-13

This was a fair to good episode, about a 6 out of 10. It begins with the team heading to Colorado, investigating an older 8-millimeter piece of footage from 1962 of what appears to be a humanoid figure hopping from rock to rock. Even the team is unsure it is a Sasquatch in the footage, so they do their first night investigation, which finds nothing. Cliff, Ranae and Bobo go to investigate others' sightings at the usual town hall meeting, while Matt goes and does a solo investigation. In one case, two people claim they saw two 'Squatches, one tall and one short, in an open field, which was recreated by Cliff standing on a fence. Ranae is skeptical of that claim, but Bobo seems sure they saw a 'Squatch. Meanwhile, the other sightings seem to have some credibility to them according to Cliff and Bobo, but at least one sighting actually left Ranae stumped. In their last night investigation, they employ a group of Girl Scouts to site out as "bait," where they let out screams that echo into the night, and they find...well, actually, nothing. This was the first time in 3 seasons they did not have any success. This was the beginning of the Fourth Season, and hopefully it will get better from here. Kind of an ultimately disappointing episode. Next Sunday, they head to West Virginia, 10:00 EST/9:00 Central on Animal Planet. Check local listings for time and channel.

(Editor's Note: Finding Bigfoot will take Super Bowl Sunday, February 3rd, off, but will return February 10th, same Bat-time, same Bat-Channel.)
