Syfy renewed Destination Truth for a fourth season to begin this fall!  Fans of weirdness around the world rejoice, and our numbers are growing!

Building on Syfy's successes in original reality programming, the first half of Destination Truth's third season (Fall 2009) established all-time series highs in total viewers (2.2 million), Adults 18-49 (1.3 million), Adults 25-54 (1.4 million) and Household ratings (1.6). The series increased in total viewers (+43%), Adults 18-49 (+41%), Adults 25-54 (+39%) and HH ratings (+33%) compared to Season 2 (SCI FI Wire).

Destination Truth plays with the sense of wonder, skepticism, and adventure alive in all of us.  This shows success is a testament to spirit of inquiry that defines us.

What do you want Josh and the gang to hunt for in season 4?

DVD Releases: March 16th 2010

Out this week we have Three DVDs to feature:  Destination Truth: Season 1, Astro Boy, The Twilight Saga: New Moon.  Do we Love It, Rent it, or Avoid Like Plague?

Owner

  • Destination Truth: Season 1: This show is awesome, Josh Gates does a wonderful job taking us on an adventure all over the world.  IN season one we go hunting for a mermaid like sea creature, the Chupacabra, has an amazing Bigfoot sighting, the Tokoloshe, werewolves, and visits a haunted village.

Don't Care

  • The Twilight Saga: New Moon: Even though I don't care to watch this movie like the first one I have added both to the rental que.  That said I'm actually more interested in the the second Twilight movie just because Christopher Heyerdahl is in it.  Even the studios don't think so high of the movie.  They have released it at the marked down price of $16.99 rather then the $20 range that is typical of the double disc releases.

SF TV Series To Watch This Fall

Ghost Hunters

With so many Speculative Fiction shows and new shows coming out this fall I thought I could help sort them all out.

Currently Airing

  • Eureka (Syfy):  A fun sci-fi show.  Love it, watch it on Hulu
  • Ghost Hunters (Syfy):  Fascinating exploration of U.S. ghost stories and haunting investigation.  Love it watch it on Hulu
  • Warehouse 13 (Syfy):  A fun sci-fi show that adds a dash of paranormal into it.   Love it, watch it on Hulu

SEPTEMBER 9

  • Glee (FOX):  loved the pilot, a nice feel good musical tale with a dash of fantasy.
  • Destination Truth (Syfy):  Loved the previous seasons can’t wait to see what Josh and the gang get into this season.  Hopefully nothing from Chernobyl bit Josh.

SEPTEMBER 10

  • The Vampire Diaries (CW):  A vampire is in it so I have to check it out but I don’t have much hope.  I realize it is not a Twilight clone (I have been schooled on that subject, lol) yet I can only hope that it is way better then Twilight.
  • Supernatural (CW):  I’m a sucker for a paranormal show involving demon hunters so this is on my check out list because I also realize there are a lot of bad ones out there as well.

SEPTEMBER 22

  • The Forgotten (ABC): I don’t have much hope for this show, mainly I’m concerned this will turn out to be yet another show for people who don’t like sci-fi to watch.

SEPTEMBER 23

  • Eastwick (ABC):  The trailers looks really good, they captured the essence of the movie so well in the promotional material I’m looking forward to watching it.

SEPTEMBER 25

  • Dollhouse (FOX):  Season one rocked!!! A must see
  • Smallville (CW): I could appreciate the concept behind Smallville but until this season just didn’t care enough bout the show to want to watch it but with Callum Blue joining the cast this year I think I may start watching it.

SEPTEMBER 27

  • The Simpsons (FOX):  If you don’t know then I’m at a loss for words.

OCTOBER 2

  • Stargate Universe (Syfy):  I started out not caring much about this show, but as more came out and especially the latest trailers I’m excited to watch it.
  • Clone Wars: Rise of the Bounty Hunters (Cartoon):  Season two of George Lucas' animated Star Wars tales covering the era of the Clone Wars.  The animation style is a unique style that has been difficult for some to get into but worth it.  The story is really good though lighter because the show is marketed more towards a kid audience I have hope that the second season will get better.

OCTOBER 9

  • Ugly Betty (ABC):  What an amazing retelling of the classic fantasy tale
  • Sanctuary (Syfy):  The original web series was good.  The first season was awesome so of course I’m looking forward to season two.

NOVEMBER 3

  • V (ABC):  I enjoyed growing up with the original show V and it is one that could use a retelling, plus Morena Baccarin.

November 7

  • Legend of the Seeker (syndication):  Season one was so good I can’t wait to see how season two unfolds.

I find it interesting that all of the speculative fiction programming out there are on either sy-fy, Fox, CW, or ABC.

Armored Catfish Fish Found in UK

Armored Catfish Cryptid

Check out this crazy armored fish!  It was identified as an armored suckermouth catfish.  Cryptomundo has a great write up on this prehistoric creature.  Thank goodness that it's an herbivore.

Seeing this really makes me wonder what else is out there in the rivers and lakes.  I wonder if destination truth could find a live one of these.
