The Destination Channel seems to have recognized how persuasive bigfootery is and has gone at it with two new shows and a full slate of re-runs.
Mountain Monsters is the newest offering, which premiered over the weekend. Think of Finding Bigpuffery with a dash of Hillbilly Blood (a very good show) and Duck Dynasty and you have a good idea of the show. A few random thoughts about Mountain Monsters:
- AIMS, the group featured in the show started up in 2010. We love thinking about all the aspiring bigfootery TV stars who have labored away for a decade or more and then are dashed by these relative newcomers. We know who you are, there is no shame in being jealous, disappointed and angry. Actually, we love yu’all that way.
- The show is described as unscripted, which may leave some wiggle room on the reality part.
- Finding Bigpuffery may be getting a bit nervous as the mountain dudes produced tracks, video, a lair, sounds and thermal on the first episode, pretty much a whole season for that other show.
- We worry about accidental discharges.
