Storyline

This is a program that examines interesting and often odd locations, with interviews with an assortment of people, posing questions about places, events, seeming historical anomolies and curiosities all portrayed as mysteries being explained. While it purports to be a documentary of scientific examination, it is really just a sensationalist collection of scenes and narratives designed to lead the viewer to the erroneous conclusion that they are being presented with new scientific findings and explanations when, in fact, they are merely being entertained with half-baked theories, speculation, and little to no new scientific or historical information. Watch for such catch phrases like "It looks like..." or "It could be..." or "Maybe..." of similar phrases scattered liberally throughout the script. The programs are not a total waste of time; interesting and out-of-the-way locales are visited which have some scenic value. Remember: Sometimes some rocks and some dirt found in close ...

Keeping an open mind and an ultimate must watch series.
20 July 2017 | by sergioschoutSee all my reviews

Whenever I see Josh Gates I find out what the great guy is up to. Now Expedition unknown is really solid on the academic approach and source materials which is a huge plus. Josh isn't someone who will dismiss things out of hand because " it is folklore" or whatever. But then I would expect nothing less from someone who went to a reputable university.

About the show itself: there are some weird ones in it but he tries to remain neutral and only giving his educated opinion at the end of the show. Now he does seem to be over enthusiastic at times which can lead to hilarious situations ( like him falling, jumping off stuff(nearly plunging to his death) etc) So it is quite fun to see what he does next.

He also keep things up to date with the scientific methods and practices so it is a true show you have to watch.
