  • Tells the truth, partial truths, and exposes pure fabrications

    This show does a pretty good job at portraying various urban legends and whether or not they ought to be taken seriously. Most of the incidents never happened or aren't possible and the show explains why. A few did happen and a few others are based on truth/real events. There's a quick question and answer between different urban legends for a quick learning. It expels some irrational fears and gets to the bottom of several stories with a bit of humor on the side although it can be a little dark by tapping into many people' existing fears. I'm very impressed by this show.moreless
  • All Creatures Great and Small

    On the exploding cow episode, the narrator said that James Elliot wrote "All Creatures Great and Small". It was actually written by James Herriot. Was he just trying to fake us out? ;-) Otherwise my family, friends, and I are enjoying the show. I've been a longtime fan of urban legends. Since the books came out in the 1980's. I'm a Librarian. Keep up the good work. Just do your research and give credit where credit is due. Thanks for a fun and wacky show. I actually do like the semi-sarcastic, tongue-in-cheek demeanor of the narrator. Is this 100 words?moreless
  • The show tells you a story of mostly urban legends some are scary,some is mysterious such as dead hotel beds or a pill to lose weight contains an unhitched tapeworm that eats the food in your stomach and some crazy things you should not believe.moreless

    The show is mildly interesting for it purchase mostly of an old urban legend stories that it's too typical to believe and bit scary in my opinion. That some sort of these events where not usually occur at this present time. I just tremble in the episode where a dead hotel beds was seen. It is so scary as the blood flows in the hotel beds. The show makes me interest in the way that it's too mysterious and their discover the event to enable to solve the puzzle in the story. The show only shows a old urban legend we must respect even it's unbelievable to happen. It is a part of an old culture transfer from entire family from day to day that must respect because it is a part of humanity.moreless
  • Fun show to kill time

    Mostly True Stories- Urban Legends Revealed is 60 minutes packed with those tales your grandma told you before bed. Although most of the stories are fabrications the show itself does not disappoint. Many stories are very poorly put toghether, and you can tell the budget is very low. On another point, it tells the less known versions of the widley known Urban Legends. You could say the show is a jigsaw puzzle that is missing a few peices. Not an original idea but, the essence of the show makes up for all the minor flaws. I rate this show 8.3.moreless
  • i love this show! call me a nerd then ;)

    this is a good show that tells you the truths about legends we all hear. it tells you weather it was true, wheather it can be true, or whether it's impossible to happen. i think this show gets you to watch it because sometime you have always wondered if a legend was true or not, and this show tells you those things.
