Review: Finding Bigfoot 1-27-13
This was actually a really good and enjoyable episode for once, a 7 out of 10. The team travelled to West Virginia where they investigated photos of what appeared to be some kind of dark object which was ambiguous at best, and the teenager who took the photos was making no claims on them. In their first night investigation, they had the young man with them to show them where this area was, and they heard some kind of a howl, but it was inconclusive at best, and Ranae and Cliff had a branch land behind them. Ranae made a decision to stay in that area while the guys went to conduct the packed town hall meeting. Matt went and met with a couple who claimed they saw a 'Squatch near a fence and left some hairs which were collected. Bobo and Cliff met with a witness who saw a Sasquatch in an wooded area (the witness was a former sheriff and Marine) who seemed to be credible. A final witness was interviewed by the three guys, who saw something as well. In their final night operation, they set out some old gutpiles of various types of animals, including deer, and set up a camera trap which was aimed at the gutpile. They heard a loud howl, almost an ascending scream. The results of the DNA extraction from the hair samples were inconclusive, and the camera malfunctioned. Still, the best episode of the new season, but there are other episodes to go, starting with the return of the show in two weeks, where they head to the Badlands of South Dakota, 10:00 EST/9:00 Central on Animal Planet.
