Review "Bigfoot Captured" History Channel
I was interested to watch "Bigfoot Captured" on History Channel. Had it been any other channel, I would have spent my evening on Netflix, but I am a HUGE fan of History Channel shows.
I was utterly dumbfounded when I realized the show was almost all about dramatization in the sensational way Animal Planet does its cheesy shows about mermaids being real and the like. I never thought History Channel would stoop to (gulp) lowest common denominator. They are the intelligent channel.
Well, all I can say is I wasn't real impressed with the go-to researcher Meldrum being utilized and the content being filled with "capturing a beast" theme or Meldrum's ape musings.
I am not going to take a chance on a 2-hour special on History Channel again unless they tell me up front they are not using dramatizations.
Enough said. I still love many of their other shows, although disappointed not to see "Search For the Lost Giants" brought back (for shame!)
