Watch Destination Truth

There is a world of ghosts, legendary creatures, and paranormal events out there just waiting to be discovered....or is there? That is what Josh Gates and his intrepid crew hope to find out in the ScyFy Channel's original series Destination Truth. Using the most technologically advanced equipment on the market, Josh and his crew head to every corner of the world to try and capture evidence that will either prove or debunk the existence of those otherworldly beasts. They do so by examining the history of the legends, talking to the locals, and conducting painstaking investigations of the area in question.

Destination Truth differs from many other shows of this ilk by adding a few elements that really add to the adventure of the investigations. Much of the excitement comes from them actually trying to reach the remote locations as they often have to cross raging rivers, rickety bridges, and fly in rather suspect looking airplanes. The investigations are always serious, but charismatic show host Josh Gates always manages to throw in a little splash of humor, often at his own expense.

The hour long show usually features a pair of investigations, with each segment ending with the team taking the evidence to animal and paranormal experts for further scrutiny. What they don't do is simply pass off the evidence as something that it's not, opting instead to always reach for the truth, even if that leads to a rather deflating conclusion.

Shows about the paranormal are all over the TV airspace at the moment, but none of them take the approach to the subject in the way that the Destination Truth team does. You really don't have to be a fan of the paranormal to get a kick out of this show, and can instead just sit back and enjoy the adventure that Mr. Gates and his team lay out before you.
