The Word Of The Day Is:
The T.V. Show: Cryptid: The Swamp Beast
on The History Channel
Last night, I checked out the show, Cryptid: The Swamp Beast, on the History channel. Now, I’m down for anything paranormal, and I couldn’t find any other show that I wanted to watch. So, I came upon this reality show that looked pretty interesting. From the information on my cable channel, it aired on 5/14.
I’ve gotta say, I loved it! I was drawn into the action from the beginning. The only problem that I have is, after it was over, I’m wondering if it was staged or real. According to the History Channel website, it is fiction, based on eyewitness accounts. They use “dramatizations” to tell the story.
A special team, working with the P.D. in the bayou of Louisiana, works to discover possible Cryptids, based on witnesses testimonies, footprints, and other evidence. A Cryptid is a creature that hasn’t been scientifically identified, such as; Bigfoot, Skunk Ape, Lochness Monster, Chupacabra, etc…..
The team consists of three guys, and one girl, all locals, I believe, and experts in their field.
They seemed to know the ins, and outs of the swamp land.
The excitement was instantaneous. And, before I knew it, I was hanging off the couch, and yelling at the t.v.!! lol
Using actors, as well as locals that wanted to be on the show, it enforces the belief in the strange folklore of Louisiana, such as the Rougarou, that the local people fear.
The Rougarou is a creature that can shape shift as well as possess a person. It has a lot of people in the Bayou scared. They feel very strongly about it.
It is an old Cajun tale that has been retold down through the genereations. Sometimes used to make children behave. The creature resembles a werewolf with red, glowing eyes. Similar to the Skunk Ape!
Okay, now I just scared myself!! Ha ha ha ha!
Especially before bed!! lol
So, if you want to watch an exciting show, that I for one believed to be real, and kept me watching the whole marathon, well into the night,
check out: Cryptid: Swamp Beast!!
