Is It Any Good?

The Unexplained Files takes an in-depth look at allegedly supernatural occurrences that have stumped scientists and inspired urban legends. It also highlights some of the specific scientific theories that modern experts use to debunk these incidents, some of which fall apart upon further investigation.

The discussions of strange occurrences and the theories used to explain them are mildly informative. However, the dramatic reenactments make the show more entertaining than informative. It's not for everyone, but folks who enjoy paranormal-themed shows will find it worth watching.
