Review: Destination Truth

Destination Truth is a series of mini documentaries produced for the SyFy channel that follow the footsteps of the mocked and well-known Ghost Hunters docu-soap. The series has Josh Gates in the leading role, an 'adventurer' by profession who often resembles the regretted Steve Irwin. Josh has a team of 5-6 people, consisting of 1-2 cameramen, a woman (different one in each episode) as a researcher and translator, a video specialist, a doctor and a sound engineer. The stated goal is finding the truth behind the mysteries of the ancient and modern legends, mysteries which generally involve animals with unproven existence.

I found the first two seasons to be entertaining, but the third and the following were not that exciting; they didn't rise to the same level. In the first part, the research activity had an air of authenticity, obviously it was a bit sham, and sometimes the results were tangible; for example a footprint of a supposed Yeti was recently exposed. The following seasons grow more and more similar to Ghost Hunters. The team takes their equipment and hides in different areas at night screaming 'Oh my God, oh my God' at every sparkle on the infrared camera. At least in the third season we can admire the assistant while hopping around as in this season the assistance is one gorgeous Hispanic woman named Jael.

Verdict:

The series has a pseudo-documentary style, and the placing of it on the science side is simply trickery. The team doesn't seem to take themselves too seriously; it looks like everything is eventually made for the sake of the show, and this is what you should expect from Destination Truth.
