    One of the more exciting aspects of tonight's episode was when Josh and a local expert went looking for caymens in the jungle. Also, I enjoyed seeing another incredible creature, the anaconda. While it wasn't the biggest snake I've seen on TV, it was surely large enough to show the potential sizes of them.



    One of the more intriguing parts of the show took place towards the end, when Josh, a local guide, and a few others drank a "mind-altering" drink. Josh later explained the way it altered his senses of hearing and vision.



    Tonight's episode was a huge letdown for me. I expected much more of an Indiana Jones adventure, as the History Channel tried to advertise, and this wasn't it.moreless

    • Josh: This week join me on a quest to learn the truth about a 3,000 year old temple of doom, complete with sacred idols and secret rituals. The ruins of the ancient civilization of Chavin have stood for 2,500 years, but we're the first to make full length documentary here. How did this empire endure without the use of weapons and warfare? Was it a Utopian society or was it a warped experiment in mind control? My search for answers will take me through secret tunnels deep within the Amazon Jungle and into the hallucinogenic rituals of a modern day shaman. And one other thing, there really is a temple of doom. We're digging for the truth and we're going to extremes to do it.
