So this kind of goes along with the post about television ghost hunters in the other thread.

There is a show called Mountain Monsters on one of the streaming services, possibly Discovery+.  It features a group of older men from the foothills that research and try to trap creatures from folklore.  For example, one episode is based on the Devil Dog, one around the Wampus Monster, etc.  

While I am completely undecided on there even being anything like these creatures even in existence, these guys are sure acting their hearts out trying to convince us that what they are doing is real.

First off, the way they handle firearms is possibly the most reckless way I have ever seen.  Second, every trap “just missed” their intended target.  Finally, so much sound is clearly added post-production that there is no way any of it is real.

Thoughts?

Equals what television calls the sizzle factor?

Equals possibly a modern day The Three Stooges?

The audio technician should consider eating a different type of mushroom :)

I'm going to look this up and give it a watch. I haven't laughed this hard in a while. Thanks Guardian for the chaotic recommendation!

Quick Note - Well someone likes them, I just found out they are on their eighth season.

I watched 1 season and couldn’t force myself to deal with any more!

I watched a "looking for bigfoot" show in the late 70's.  Even as a kid, I could see how much they sensationalized it to the extreme withe night time animal noises in the distance.  it was VERY lame.

Mountain Monsters sets a pretty low bar. I guess it's entertaining for some, I couldn't even get through one episode

It may have been worse acting than those rescue re-enactments on Rescue 911 in the 80s.

Just a bunch of hillbillies stumbling and running and shouting through the woods. I'd wager in real life they aren't really like that, just playing a role

Oh, I absolutely agree.  TV makes people do stupid things.
