In Search Of… my first exposure to the paranormal

Here’s a funny story…

When I was little, my mom loved the show In Search Of… It was my first introduction to paranormal topics and also to Leonard Nimoy, believe it or not (which reminds me of another show that first introduced me to Jack Palance).

In Search Of… was so influential to my interest in paranormal topics. It was where I saw the Patterson Gimlin Bigfoot film. It was where I first saw the famous Loch Ness monster photos. It was where I heard about the Bermuda Triangle and Amelia Earhart. It was my primer to all these topics I still think about and write about today.

Well now, it’s out on DVD. 152 episodes on 21 discs. 63 hours!

I hope it comes out on Netflix so I can rent it. Not 63 hours of it but maybe just to reminisce  I’m a bit weirded out to watch it again. Will it be as cheezy and hoaky as I expect? I think it will bring back a flood of memories. I’ve learned so much about this subject and so much has changed since the 70s when they were made. But, scientifically, NOT THAT MUCH has changed. We STILL don’t have any significantly better answers to the questions of Bigfoot, lake monsters and ghosts. That says a lot.
