Destination America "Alaska Monsters" Review

By
Alaska Monsters Destination America

The show Alaska Monsters is a new program that airs on Destination America, Fridays at 9/8C.

Episode 1: "Central Alaska's Bigfoot", aired on Friday, September 12.

The show begins with this statement:

"Alaska, where some people go to disappear, and others just go missing. It is home to a mysterious triangle, rumored to be the the stomping ground of Bigfoot and other strange and unexplained creatures. Now a team of experienced frontiersman, using cutting edge technology, is exploring this massive triangle zone by zone."

The monster hunting team consists of a Team Leader, Researcher, Trap Engineer, Tech Expert, and an Expert Tracker.

The show starts off with a group of bearded men (much like Mountain Monsters) sitting around in a circle discussing their upcoming Bigfoot hunt.

The team then goes to interview an eyewitness, who comes off as acting. So right off the bat I'm thinking this show is just a spin-off of Mountain Monsters. Which is fine, if  you just want some entertainment. And like Mountain Monsters, some tid-bits of knowledge and history are given throughout the show.

They then strap on their weapons and head into the woods in search of Alaska's Bigfoot: the Bushman. After hearing some noises in the bush they stumble upon what appears to be a giant footprint in the dirt. Which leads them to think they are definitely in Bushman territory. So now that they know where the Bushman lives they decide to set up a trap to try and catch the elusive beast. They end up building a giant cylinder snare trap that they will try and use at nightfall. And just like the infamous hoaxer Rick Dyer, they use ribs to try and lure in the Squatch. But before it gets dark they go and talk with another eyewitness, who pulls out his phone and shows the team a video of a Bigfoot walking.

As darkness falls the team visits a stick structure they think was made by the Bushman and hear a loud growl from the treeline. They then catch the beast on their thermal camera and begin chase. They are trying to push the Bushman into their trap. After a short pursuit they lose sight of the creature and think it's given them the slip. So they head over to meet up with their teammate who has been in hiding by the trap and find out that things got a little hairy for him, as he is quite shaken...

Unfortunately the Bushman did get away, but there's always next time...

Overall, the show is just like Mountain Monsters. So if you like that show, odds are you'll like this one too.

Tune in to Destination America this Friday 9/19/14 at 9/8C for Episode 2: Alaska Monsters: Saberwolf

    3. How can anyone be so negative. They wouldn't show it if weren't true. They have so much evidence, I truly believe it's 100% not fake. I only hope they don't get injured. I would be disappointed if they stop the series due to injury. The woodman and the otter man are especially cool. They are very dangerous.

LOL LOL LOL How can you be so naive they can put anything on tv and you would believe it. Bigfoot is real but the show raises a lot of questions it is about making money not finding bigfoot

    2. After 96 shows 2000 cases of beer, 3000 farts, lousy jokes older then Crusty ( and he is ) not 1 ( one) capture. But lotta ad time and wahoo yelling in the dead of night while trying to be stealthy trackers. Give us a break !! Pure " corny" skirt writers trying to give America what they believe mountain men do in their spare time. Dressing up and being dumb.

  5. it's like they took the cousins of Mountain Monsters, changed the name of the monsters except used the same POS script. Same ol'lame excuses for why they don't catch something and the same blurry digital cell phone video captures. I've actually blocked it from even showing

  7. Example of fake to me was the one of The Northern Giant. When bear messed his arm up and met with the team. When they were discussing the trap both hands were in his pockets then the minute they said they feel should stand down all of a sudden his arm is in sling! Another thing is how come when the GIANT knocked off GPS device that stuck to it and they found it, they never mentioned getting fur tested. The gps had glue to stick to fur!!!

  11. I am ready to send them to Washington to run this country....it would be an improvement.

  12. Thanks for watching folks! Very glad we could at least provide some entertainment value and give you some talking points for BlogSpot!

    ReplyDelete
  13. does everyone notice that they use the same sound effects every episode for a new creature. it's literally exactly the same. the show won't get a second year guarantee. on top of that what annoys me the most is when they're setting up a trap how loud they are. you would think that they would be as quiet as possible. just my opinion but this shows a joke

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Notice that the trap builders are never armed. Guess the producers told the creatures not to attack while setting up the traps.

      Delete
    2. No, everyone knows that bigfoots are afraid of traps, trap makers and trap making materials. So they are never in danger

      Delete
  14. sad to say, all this does is make the bigfoot community look nore like a joke.
    With the money spent on this series (which I do believe will be very short) the producers could have spent that money on a real expedition to capture Sasquatch and display definitive proof.
    But no, they make a farce of the whole situation and add more disbelief to Sasquatch as well. Truly a waste of time and money spent on this series. The Producers could have made real money spending on a real effort to capture sasquatch and send him to a zoo, what a waste of time

    1. As much as I know this show is fake as amungst other shows I watch, it's entertainment to me! However , I do agree I believe in Bigfoot and your right the money they spend in this shit should def be put towards research on a real expedition towards a real not fake animal!!

  15. What a bunch of DBs "I smelled alot of doo doo and I know it was bush man doo doo". Something smells like doo doo alright.

    1. Raises hand, I would. I love the one where they build a trap, but just miss capturing Bigfoot in the trap. Then there the one where they are chased by Bigfoot and have to hide inside of the trap they built to survive. Oh and how about the one where Bigfoot growls and scares them so they fire off a few rounds to try and kill in!! So exciting, I can hardly wait to see what lies.. err I mean adventures they come up with next.

  20. This is a marvelous show. Never before have such a squad of highly trained and seasoned veterans come together for such important research. I've only seen the first episode and all I can say is Wow! The trap designed was absolutely genius and their use of technology is mind boggling. Little Bear is the most impressive. He is basically an Indian War Chief using ancient techniques to guide and protect his crew. What brave men. What brilliant men! What examples to the world and the research community.
    Now I'm gonna go shoot myself!!

  21. Shouldn't these jokers actually catch one monster before they move on to the next one.all of the elaborate traps left in the woods boggles my mind as a hunter.they should stay hunting one "monster" till it's caught.

  22. Absolutely the worst faked show I've ever seen. I already know what's going the supposedly happen every time... And know exactly how they will screw it up to get evidence. Anything is better that this crap

  23. Oh and the biggest proof it's fake.. EVERY SINGLE TIME there's a chance to get video of it, they view the idiot actors instead. EVERY TIME. How can you have it right beside you every five minutes and yet they do not pan the camera to the area where the noise came? STUPID. I only wasted 15 minutes of my life watching this crap

    ReplyDelete
  24. The sad part is that this show is being shown all around the world. Just one more thing making us look like total idiots in America.

    ReplyDelete
  25. Have to agree with the last comment it does. Watching these guys at work is like watching a bunch of retards trying to f@@k a door knob. The amount of nouse they make I'm supprised they caught coyotes on camera. I can't believe people actually think it's real or they should put the money into more serious research into finding big foot. Sorry but those comments are nearly as funny as the programme it's self. Sorry to break it to some of you but the otter man, saber wolf, lockness monster and big foot aren't real. I'm looking forward to next season though apparently they have some big leads and are going to attempt to catch the easter bunny

    ReplyDelete
  26. I live in Scotland and to a sensible person it doesn't make every American look idiotic, unless of course you spend your life charging through the woods with guns chasing mythical non existent animals/monsters. It makes the "funding bigfoot" crew look positively scientific. Are these men actors or is this serious?? It can't be, its to staged and faked, the monster is always right there close enough that they can here it roar, smell it, but never manage to catch it on camera or trap it. Its so bad that it's actually hilarious.

  31. My question is, why don't they have a tranquilizer gun?? They always seem to see it close enough, plus I agree with several of these comments. They build these traps but never catch anything, what happens to the trap when they leave?? Do they spring it or leave it open or what?

  34. This show is like that blare witch movie crud if you think this bigfoot show is real you need to be shot.

    ReplyDelete
  35. This show is definitely fake. But it is entertaining in a bang your head against the wall kind of way.

    On the latest episode when they are after the Yukon bigfoot, they find a tarp type tent, which of course is a bigfoot nest, becouse what else would it be? If you notice when they pan in that sceen there is a blue/white tent in the background, obviously another nest :)

  36. It goes back to a bunch of guys running around in a wooded lot carrying empty shot guns. Then they get in new vehicles and drive around the same empty lot yelling........lol god bless them they are making beer money... shame on the producers no gun safety there's they lock and load there shot gun aim at the guy next to him. Honey they just bag a beer drinking mountain man.

  39. one of the most idiotic programs I've seen. If you believe any of that you've got to be crazy.

    ReplyDelete
  40. When one of these shows has camera men that actually film what's going on instead of the reaction of the hunters, it might make it more believable. No film crew could have pulled their cameras off a real Bigfoot to film the crew.

    ReplyDelete
  41. What a joke. A bunch of yahoo's hollering while chasing a guy in the dark. No pics of a creature mere feet from them. Chases it past the trap. Can't believe such crap is on tv. At least have a decent cgi pic to gawk at. Or invite bobo to wear a sasquach suit on the show.

    ReplyDelete
  42. There's a Bigfoot (that weighs upwards of 1000 pounds) jumping up and down on the corrugated metal roof above them and the roof doesn't show as much as a dent and holds it's weight? The camera NEVER sees one but they always do? Oh, come on! If anything is supposedly caught in one of their traps, it always escapes and there is never a trail cam in place to get a pic of it? More serious shows like Finding Bigfoot, where four people search using common sense methods occasionally hear a howl but never actually see one, and these shows, with all their shooting, hooting and hollering, always experience a Bigfoot... riiiiight! I do believe Bigfoot exists, but Mountain Monsters and Alaska Monsters are total fakes, in my opinion, and for entertainment value only..

  46. The show and the actors are a joke. I would be ashamed to be one of them. Everything is so staged that it's corny. Do they really think that they will be able to find the most elusive creature in history by riding around on atv's and screaming? I truly hope that a grizzly bear attacks and kills them all.

  47. These guys are nothing but a bunch of idiot Hillbillies, who have nothing better to do than make themselves look stupid. Television shows like this insult people's intelligence, and should really be on cartoon network.

    ReplyDelete
  48. How about this if you don't want to shot one use a tranquilizers to knock big foot out and why don't all of you have thermal glasses I watch the show you all run around scared and yelling if you real hunt like that I see why you never get anything!

    ReplyDelete
  49. In the latest episode they at least FINALLY set up a tranquilizer pad and managed to collect some hair. Why didn't they end the episode with the DNA results to make the show more believable? Even if it came back inconclusive, it would at least add some scientific entertainment. I will say that this show is 10x better than the West Virginia clan that screams and hollers enough to scare off every animal within 3 counties prior to their "seeing and finding" bigfoot. The "supposed" ex Marine, "Wild Bill" is a total embarrassment to both the Corps and everyone's intelligence that watches the show, even if for a good laugh once a week!

  50. I watched their season two show on animal planet and claiming that the thunderfoot had attack them after they enter the contena.. unluckily, the show was not good as there were no camera caught the bear on tape even after they claimed there were several bears attacked them..

    Why they dont also set up a still nightmode videocam to record what really happening there from other perpectives??

    I dont think the investigation is real..

  51. These guys couldn't catch shit in there own pants.

  55. This shit show is an insult to people with even marginal intelligence. Of course it's fake but mocks actual outdoor experience. Do these actors look at each other and laugh when the camera stops rolling or do they shake their heads in disgust? They probably realize the damage done setting humankind back years just by being part of this farce.

  56. Another bullshit production.
    Really....how stupid do they think we are? Not even a young child would believe it's true.especially when the cameramen was shooting from outside the cabins when everybody was inside scared the snit out of them.

  58. Tonight on Alaska Monsters....We're in pursuit of that nasty Bastard the Siberian Saber Wolf. Crusty: that son of bitch has a history of messin' wit people's camps. In the background Face: perrrty damn cold out here...what whattt was that, that son of a bitch is howlin' right outside our camp. Crusty: son of bitch Face woke our asses up middle of the night, that hairy bastard was russlin' in the brush howlin' right around our camp. He don't know who he's messin' wit Tarrrrheeet. Mark my word we'll get that hairy bastard.
    Either these dudes are extremely overpaid or just are as retarded as they present themselves to be. Maybe there is a creature out there that resembles a "Bigfoot", but they really go over the top when they "hunt" for these creatures that appear to be nothing more than a large wolf with an absurd name like Alaska Saber Bush Wolf. Reality tv has become a platform for outlandish nonsense, that makes its viewers dumber with every second that passes.
