For those of us who cut our paranormal geek teeth on "In Search Of" in the 1970s, we have something to get excited about again! "In Search Of" is coming back with newer more up to date info and subjects with new host, Zachary Quinto.
LINK: The History Channel announced that it’s producing a new, 10-episode run of the famed paranormal investigation show originally narrated by The Twilight Zone’s Rod Serling in the early ’70s, before Nimoy took over following Serling’s death. In a public statement, Quinto said that while his approach to hosting the show will be somewhat different, he’s confident that he will be able to do right by Nimoy’s legacy:
“I am so excited to be reimagining In Search Of and exploring new questions and phenomena with all of the advancements in science and technology from which we have benefited in the past forty years since the original series first aired. In the spirit of my late dear friend Leonard Nimoy, we intend to honor and perpetuate his endless curiosity about the world – and universe – in which we live.”
The original series, hosted by Leonard Nimoy, ran from 1977-1982. It covered topics from killer bees to Bigfoot, the Bermuda Triangle to life after death.
For we paranormal geeks who grew up in the 70s, this is a super awesome time to witness a beloved series come back to life. History Channel does some real quality work and I suspect that there are some middle-aged para geeks on staff to be sure it's treated with the same creepy music and pace that the original possessed. And, so far as the new host is concerned, welcome to our nerd circle, dear.
