The Back 80: A Modern Day Bigfoot Encounter

The Back 80: A Modern Day Bigfoot Encounter – Review

The Back 80: A Modern Day Bigfoot Encounter Directed by Alan Megargle & Jesse Morgan The Back 80: A Modern Day Bigfoot Encounter is a documentary that is precisely what its title implies – a focused examination on one woman’s fairly recent encounter with an alleged Bigfoot. There are of course some other corroborating stories […]

Bigfoot Spotted in New Jersey

Last month, I did a blog post about the Jersey Devil and how the legend may have originally been borne of people simply misidentifying Bigfoot. After the post was published, I had a number of people contact me privately and on social media because they were surprised to hear that Bigfoot could indeed be living […]

Finding Bigfoot Series Finale

“Finding Bigfoot” Ends its Run on Animal Planet’s Monster Week

The Animal Planet show Finding Bigfoot has long been a guilty pleasure of mine. Sure, they never do actually “find” Bigfoot, but they do make a lot of noise, as well as a lot of jokes, while looking for him. My interest in the show was always less about the four main cast members from […]

Bigfoot Likes Pizza and Nutter Butters?

There’s been a lot of drama surrounding the Bigfoot community as of late. First there was the report of numbskull hoaxer Rick Dyer claiming once again (he claimed the same thing in 2008, and the Bigfoot turned out to be a gorilla costume and some racoon entrails in a cooler) that he had shot and […]

I Want to Believe: Bigfoot on the Brain

The summer of my Bigfoot obsession began with an episode of MonsterQuest on the History Channel, which had long since stopped showing shows about history. I was watching my niece—she was napping and I was half asleep on the couch. I heard a groan escape the television and crawl its way up my toes, my […]

New Bigfoot Map Details Sightings

So you want to hunt Bigfoot, but don’t know where to start? Try reading a book! No, but seriously, it seems as though a doctoral candidate has plugged in Bigfoot sightings from the past 100 years into a computer, and generated a Bigfoot map of all of the sightings. It’s pretty common knowledge regarding where […]

Bigfoot Sighted By Nebraska Teen

When one thinks of Bigfoot habitat, Nebraska is probably one of the last places most people think about. The Pacific Northwest, Canada, even the Northeast, sure. But Nebraska? It doesn’t seem like Bigfoot country. But a teenager there has reported seeing a 7-foot tall hairy creature running across the road, and the local sheriff is […]

Finding Bigfoot Team to Use Hot Air Balloon

At this point, I think a lot of people would say that the show Finding Bigfoot couldn’t sink any lower. So apparently, Matt Moneymaker and his team are looking to do the opposite of sinking: heading into the skies in a hot air balloon in their search for Sasquatch. The Finding Bigfoot team is always open to […]

The Finding Bigfoot Halloween Special

When I first heard about the Animal Planet show Finding Bigfoot last summer, I was really excited. Don’t get me wrong, I love ghost hunting. But watching it on TV has gotten tiresome, and for me it is just enough already. The airwaves pretty much got saturated by Ghost Hunters, its 17 spinoffs, Ghost Adventures, […]

Animal Planet renews “Finding Bigfoot”

In what is probably not a surprise to anyone at this point, Animal Planet has announced that they have ordered a 10-episode second season of its highly-rated (and highly-controversial) show, Finding Bigfoot. The show, which follows Bigfoot Field Researchers Organization founder Matt Moneymaker and crew while they search for Sasquatch, has received a lot of […]
