real folks

The folks in the show are real people. No pretense, and will talk to just about anyone not monopolizing their time. The organization has a sighting database with over 10,000 witness reports. I'd say there is a greater chance of meeting a sasquatch in the woods than winning a lottery. Good show for 10+ years old. Steve

Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say (3 ):
Kids say (7 ):

Unlike other series about Big Foots and other legendary creatures, Finding Bigfoot goes beyond speculating about their existence to discussing the existence of the large hairy creatures as if it is scientific fact. While the team admits that much of the physical evidence they collect is circumstantial, they consistently declare that what they are finding is credible, and therefore regularly confirm their existence.

Dramatic images and recreations of Big Foot sightings are plenty here, but none of them seem to offer anything substantive. Meanwhile, the team's constant explanations for everything they see, hear, and do, make them seem like they are trying too hard to be convincing. Those who believe in the existence of Sasquatches will find the series informative, but non-believers will find it hard to take what is being presented here seriously.
