| It's a brilliant faux-docu drama
Seriously, when I found out this was scripted and ACTED, the show just got better to me. The performances of the real people are so beautifully done, shot, edited, and then, tied in with the actors whose performances are so good, it made me not even question this was fake documentary for a couple episodes.

But, when I found out it was, I just loved it more. The whole show is acted, shot and edited with such care and realism, it's brilliant. This could EASILY be a one hour supernatural drama and I would watch it.

I just wish that the History channel would embrace that it's a SHOW, and let whoever writes and produces this run with it. List the cast, the writers, producers, and stop shying away from what it is.
