Shows exploring the strange phenomena and cases of the supernatural have been produced with as much regularity as such cases themselves have been reported throughout the years. We can all probably name a few off theses shows off the top of our heads, even if we're not believers ourselves. One such example is the classic "In Search Of". Hosted by the great - and now sadly deceased - Leonard Nimoy, it was the type of show that later such shows would copy in one form or another; the type that investigated the unique mysteries of our planet. This could be not only anything from investigating claims of ghosts, hauntings, UFOs, Bigfoot, Loch Ness monster, reincarnation, past lives, Atlantis, Bermuda Triangle (which are the things the show is most famous for) but also things and events as diverse as the disappearance of Amelia Earhart and the subsequent theories on what happened to her, DB Cooper and his infamous airline hijacking, ransom, and daredevil escape; as well as exploring such varying subjects like earthquakes, tornadoes, killer bees, Oak island, lost Viking colonies, and Voodoo on the island of Haiti! And it was hosted and narrated by the wonderful Mr. Nimoy, who, with his trademark intelligence, eloquence, great voice, and display of vulcan logic, brought much legitimacy to the show's subjects, no matter how outlandish they might appear. Also included were interviews with witnesses, experts - both believers and skeptics - police officers, scientists, historians, and anybody who could shed some light on the subject at hand. Add some unique - and at times spooky - music, and you have yourself a fun, interesting, campy at times, TV Classic. The show might seem a bit dated in some areas, but that doesn't mean it's no less compelling today than it was then. After all, it's been over thirty years since this program was on and we're still contemplating many of these subjects. For that reason, "In Search Of" is the type of show that has a little something for everyone, regardless of whether you're a believer or not. A lot of the episodes are available on you tube and the whole show is available on DVD. Check it out sometime, and go on a journey with Mr. Nimoy in search of something.
P.S. Rest in peace Mr. Nimoy
