JERMAINE, EVA BRAUN,MENGELE VAN GOGH, THE HUMAN AURA,JIM JONES, ELEPHANT MAN, TIME TRAVEL, BIG FOOT, BERMUDA TRIANGLE, FULL MOON, AND MORE.
What are your favorites?

I loved this show as well!

As a matter of fact, thanks for the post. It's about time for my annual quest to find every episode. I've been searching for a long time to find decent copies of each & every episode.

I've seen people selling sets on ebay for $100+ but I refuse to pay for pirated copies like that.

If they were to make it available commercially I'd have no problem paying for a good set. But the way I see things, if they don't want to sell something, they can't bitch when people download it off the internet.

I got mine at sellers.com 30 bucks. Homemade but good enough. You can talk the price down, probably.

REALLY big thanks for mentioning this. Looks like all 6 seasons are on usenet. They're all in xvid so looks like it will fit one season per DVD. Pretty sweet!

Just thought I would mention that Leonard Nimoy will be joining the cast of Fringe next season.

MYSTERY MAN,

I'm glad someone brought this up. I grew up on In Search Of as well. It helped spark my interest in all things esoteric and mysterious at a young age. It seemed like a lot more fun in the 70's somehow. While I have many favs the episode "Dark Star" is one of my favorites. Its about an African tribe which has traditions going back centuries, who knew of a star that was only detectable by modern astronomy in the last 50 years or so. How did they know? I actually found this episode on Youtube.

This was my introduction into the world of the mysterious, thanks to my Mom. I would love to get my hands on all of the seasons and see if they are indeed as good as I remember or just as cheese filled as the fashion of the day. For some reason I was always fascinated by the episode where they found a battery(s) encrusted in rocks. At 7 I was already fascinated w/ UFOs and ghosts so this was another thing to wonder about.

8) Another great series from the 70's that is on U-Tube is Carl Sagan's Cosmos. It's all there . I watch it while I'm working .
Episodes 9,10 and 12 are the best . Episode 12 covers the possible number of civilizations in our galaxy .
9 teaches Chemistry and the stars .

Bump.

To the best of my knowledge, In Search Of.. was never shown on UK Television, we had Arthur C Clarke's Mysterious World to cover the weird beat but I've greatly-enjoyed catching up with as many episodes as I can find on YouTube.

It's such a great series & the 70's synth soundtrack to the stories just makes it perfect in my book - the music being very reminiscent of that employed on schools programes shown here in Britain during the same period.

God I feel old..

Giving this old thread a bump, given the news of Nimoy's passing.


Episodes are still available to watch free on one of the roku channels.
