I absolutely love this show and am baffled about all the people bashing it. Josh Gates is one hell of a host and keeps things interesting and fun. I have no idea why some people get the impression that he is making fun of the locals in the exotic destinations he investigates. Josh is a goofy guy and finds humor in every situation and I don't think that's such a bad quality and who ever thinks so must lead a boring life. People also seem to complain about them not finding any evidence which I find hilarious. Do you really expect them to find evidence of a werewolf? Obviously there is no such thing as werewolves and if they found "evidence" to support that, I'd stop watching. Destination Truth is about introducing us couch potatoes to other cultures and their superstitions and beliefs and going out there to A. If it is a plausible creature, look for possible evidence of it's existence. and/or B. Look for what people could be mistaking as a unknown creature. Most of the time they find evidence to support the latter. I have also read comments criticizing the on camera "freak outs," I'm sorry but if you are in the middle of the jungle at night; you better be afraid of EVERYTHING. No one on this show claims to be a scientist and actual scientific research can take years if not ones lifetime. So, if you like travel mixed with humor and learning about other cultures' superstitions and "monster" sightings with a healthy does of skepticism then this show is for you. If you take life way too seriously, hate fun, and like to spend time ripping a TELEVISION SHOW apart... look elsewhere.
