Sasquatch is a riveting three-part true-crime documentary series, co-produced by Duplass Brothers Productions and directed by Joshua Rofé. The show premiered on Hulu in April 2021 and highlights a murder mystery entwined with a regional urban legend of Bigfoot, a hairy, giant creature that allegedly inhabits the forests of North America.

The show is anchored on a journalist, David Holthouse, who, after decades of keeping a hidden incident from the public, decides to investigate rumors that Bigfoot might have been involved in a triple homicide that took place in 1993, in Northern California's Mendocino County. David narrates the events and takes viewers on an intense and eerie journey as he probes deeper into the murder, which has been rumored to have been carried out by a cannabis grower gang known as the Emerald Triangle in the dense Redwood Forest.

The story comes with plenty of twists and turns as David arrives in the area to start his inquiry. He meets a man named Danny, also known as Ghostdance, who lives off the grid and has lived in the forests for years, helping marijuana growers with his formidable skills. Ghostdance is a charismatic figure who speaks in riddles and who has seen and heard firsthand accounts of Bigfoot sightings, sounds, and even smells. He piques David's curiosity regarding Bigfoot and his possible involvement with the murder.

As David digs deeper, he comes across multiple leads, including those who were present at the time of the murder, and other bystanders who vaguely recall the incident. They all reference the same elements - the ‘giant hairy animal’ and ‘the screaming that echoed through the night’ - giving credence to the possibility that Bigfoot was present during the murder.

Apart from the Bigfoot factor, the show also showcases the socio-economic landscape of the area, where illegal cannabis cultivation runs rampant, and the people living there are fearful and reclusive, having a deep-seated distrust of outsiders. The community is intriguing, and characters such as Christopher Dienstag, a long-term local resident, and marijuana farmer with a shady past, add to the color of the story.

Sasquatch's dark and compelling narrative will keep viewers hooked from the first episode till the very end. The documentary probes the intersections between myth and reality while also looking into the murky politics of the marijuana industry, forest crimes, and the complexities of investigating a decades-old case.

The show is compelling and laced with eerie soundscapes and cinematography that are evocative of the forests that surround the area. Moreover, Sasquatch is an excellent blend of true-crime and urban legend storytelling, and the balance is struck perfectly, keeping viewers on the edge of their seats.

In conclusion, Sasquatch is an exciting, compelling account of a journalist's investigation of a murder mystery that hasn't been solved for decades. The Bigfoot sighting, whether real or not, adds an element of mystery and awe that captivates viewers, and the characters and setting of the show make it even more intriguing. Sasquatch makes for an excellent binge-watch, and a must-watch for anyone interested in true-crime or urban legends.

Sasquatch is a series that is currently running and has 1 seasons (3 episodes). The series first aired on April 20, 2021.
