    Josh goes Bigfoot and giant sea monster hunting!



    Josh goes hunting for bigfoots and something hits a camera to the ground! Plus a big foot print is found. If it's there or not, hey who knows, but maybe!



    Another thing is that he goes for the Loch Ness Monster's cousin. THat was my favorite because it was funny, because the truth is insane cienteit tested superweapons, but left after everything had gotten horribly wrong. Josh pits this as just some earthquakes, and not a giant sea serpent though.



    Personally it was good, and a funny episode! I'm hoping for the next one will be good two!moreless
  • He still sounds a bit too condescending. But, not as badly as he did on episode 2.

    So, first off, let's look at the Malaysian Bigfoot segment. I've been a junkie for this topic since I was in high school. And, this is the first I've heard of these particular sightings! True, I've read about the pint-sized orang pendek, of Indonesia, which most people have likewise dismissed out of hand. That is; until that pint-sized fossil skeleton was found of a Stone Age primate matching reported descriptions of the orang pendek. But, jungle creatures matching the reported size of the Himalayan Yeti and the American Sasquatch? I repeat: this is the first I've heard of it. So, I am seriously hoping Gates can return to that part of Malaysia to try and find out just what toppled that night-vision camera from behind! As for El Nahuelito? Part of me is disappointed that most of the sightings might be seismically-caused ripples. But, another part of me likes to optimistically point out that "most" does not equal "all." That the remaining percentage of unexplained sightings might have a flesh-and-blood creature--previously unknown to science--behind them. Which is the same feeling I have with regard to Nessie and Champ sightings. In short, then, I think this was the best episode of this new series to date. If only because Josh Gates is starting to act more like a mature professional.moreless

  • QUOTES (6)

    • Josh: A monster born from the bowels of a nuclear experiment gone wrong? Did I just step into the pages of a Stan Lee comic or what?

    • Josh: (suspicious he was given a bum steer) Did you see what the guy said to us when we parked the car? He asked me to park it really close to the tree because it makes it harder for the locals to steal it. And then as we got into the boat there were a thousand monkeys on the hood! (finding his car is totally trashed) Dude, the monkeys did a number on the car. All the other cars are fine! Our car? Monkey poo town!
      Eric: Isn't this the spot they told us to park in?
      Josh: Exactly! Park it right here! This is where monkeys love to sit, crap, and play with it!

    • Josh: With dilapidated structures at every turn, the island looked like a science fiction movie where mad scientists from the '40s had used the island as a testing ground to perform nuclear experiments, and then just abandoned the place when everything had gone wrong. I kept telling myself that this wasn't a movie, and the reality was that, mad scientists from the '40s had used the island as a testing ground to perform nuclear experiments, and then just abandoned the place when everything had gone wrong.

    • Adan: (translating for a "Bigfoot" eyewitness) His uncle bring him at night because this Bigfoot have no dress. The sex is like human.
      Josh: You mean the sexual organs? It has human...?
      Adan: He's shy.
      Josh: You mean, they went at night so that they wouldn't startle Bigfoot or embarrass him? Okay...

    • Josh: (after the Argentine cab he's riding in breaks down) It's amazing, it takes twenty minutes to get a cab, two minutes to get a tow truck.

    • Josh: (as the guide prepares to boat them to Bigfoot's supposed jungle home) Marc, this guy's got twenty gallons of open fuel, his foot is on the fuel line, cover's off the engine, he's smoking a cigarette six inches away from it. I don't mind the jungle, I just don't want this guy to Hindenburg this engine!
