I am moving this to Myths, Urban Legends, and Folklore since it isn't about hauntings or ghosts.

This show was actually on here in Canada on the History Channel over the summer. Very good and enjoyable show!

In summary, a team of individuals (a historian/folklorist, a comic book artist, a biologist and a vet/adventurer) choose a creature of legend (like a krakan for example), study the legends at the sources, examine animals that share characteristics and 'create' the creature with the help of a computer graphic artist and show a little clip of the 'creature' in the modern world. Fascinating. I highly recommend it!

Watched the krakan episode; it was pretty cool. I did laugh at how the one team member kept trying to give the monster epic tools of mass destruction, like spikes and armor.

Saw the krakan episode. Was a bit disappinted that they didn't take a look at Vampyroteuthis infernalis (Vampire squid from hell) as this animal is the only known member of the Order Vampyromorphida, the seventh order in the Class Cephalopoda and combines features from both octopodiformes (octopuses) and decapodiformes (squid, cuttlefishes, etc.) suggesting it may represent an ancestral line between the two groups.

Also saw the dragon episode. Kinda cool, but I hope they revisit the dragon for other habitats beside the forest..

I didn't care for their version of the dragon- it just looked to me like a lizard with glider wings. Interesting research, though

I do not care for this show whatsoever.

It was like they were building a creature from a comic book. Adding spikes, armored plates, & such to a creature that never would have had them in first place. At least stick to what the reports (modern & historical) say they look like, instead of designing it how they think/want it to look like.

This show is pure pablum. It says nothing meaningful about legend, myth or reality.

If you want more than that, you will be disapointed.

If you are just wanting to see a dicussion an depiction of a cool creature, you will probaably like it.

I actually enjoy it, but mainly because I get to see some creative people using their talents, and they show me a lot of fun visual stuuf. I watch it in the same way as a I watch Spongebob Squarepants. It is fun, visually pleasing escapist pablum. I eat it with a spoon!.

Regards, Canis

P.S. Yes I really do watch Spongebob. :wave:
