Trivia

On November 4, 2018, two new episodes of Beyond Belief: Fact or Fiction, known as "X-Factor: Das Unfassbare" in Germany, where the show is very popular, aired in Germany under the title of "X-Factor: Das Unfassbare kehrt zurück" due to the 20 year anniversary of the show in Germany. The episodes were hosted by Detlef Bothe. However the reception has been highly negative owing to the fact that amateur actors were casted and the cases were produced cheaply. See more »

Quotes

[at the end of "House of Shadows" segment]
Jonathan Frakes: In deciding whether this story is fact or fiction, put yourself in Ally's place. Are you occupying a space where trust resides or are you sitting in a house of lies?

Engaging Show
20 January 2003 | by cmamusicSee all my reviews

Very interesting show! This show had some of the most bizarre tales you will ever hear, and the whole show kept the watcher guessing as to which of the episodes stories were true or false! It was not always predictible, there were many stories I thought false that were true! Fun premise, and the host made it a lot of fun with all his puns and Magician like delivery!
