Top 5 Cryptid Television Shows
Tempting The Light is the first novel in my L.A.M.P.S. (Legends and Myth Police Squad) series that features hunky secret agents who find true love while hunting and slaying dangerous Cryptids.
What is a Cryptid? A Cryptid is a creature that has no scientific proof that it exists. Therefore, they are considered legends, myths, folklore, or extinct. The study of these animals and plants is called Cryptozoology. There are several television shows that are about Cryptids.
Here are my top 5 Cryptid Television shows
- Fact or Faked– This show aired for two years on the SyFy Channel starting in 2010. A team of video and stunt professionals debunked video footage of mysterious creatures and ghosts. You can still catch reruns on Syfy. The great thing about this show was most of the time they could prove the video was faked.
- Cryptid Swamp Beast- This show aired on the History Channel in 2014. This was a crazy show. It was more of a drama chase set in the Bayou. The predator lurked in the swamps while the police find the RouGarou’s victims. The show was entertaining but it did get gory and violent sometimes.
- Destination Truth – Hosted by Josh Gates aired on the Syfy Channel. Josh was amusing and funny while they hunted cryptids in other countries. They still air reruns on the Syfy Channel.
- Monsters and Mysteries in America- This show is still on Destination America. It usually showcases three cryptids per episode and they recreate witness encounters.
- Mountain Monsters- This show has to be the most entertaining. Six mountain men or hillbillies chase monsters through the woods. It’s set up as a reality show but each show has the same format. They interview witnesses, build a trap, and chase something through the woods. Each hunter has a specific job such as, tracker, trap builder, caller, head of security, researcher, and founder. They have a spinoff called the Alaska Monsters. Both build traps to catch the beasts but never succeed. Instead they become the hunted.
