Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say: Not yet rated
Kids say: Not yet rated

The show comes from the same team that created the popular Ghost Hunters franchise and follows a similar format, with the team getting the details on a case and then heading out to hopefully find actual evidence. However, while the stories they're studying are interesting, much of the show features interviews with regular people telling their tales. Some of the witnesses are eager to be on camera, some are clearly nervous and uncomfortable. And, with several people telling variants of the same story, UFO Hunters tends to get repetitive.

Oliver Kemenczky and Ted Davis, NY-SPI's founders and the main investigators on the show, are clearly hoping to document actual alien encounters -- but they're careful to remain objective and let the facts speak for themselves. That said, since their evidence typically comes down to uncorroborated stories, most of the cases end up inconclusive, and there's little drama or excitement in watching people who can't solve a mystery.
