    Haha no, reality show people are the same producers so a bit of sarcasm

    They had an episode involving this if you’ve seen the TV series Project Blue Book on the History channel.

    The Blue Book series on The History Channel is not based on "reality" such as a reasonable interpretations of Dr. Hynek's investigations, case studies or anything. They are loose, generalized episodes often fictionalized, and sensationalized, accounts of possible event streams-imagine that!

    I think the above is where Skin Walker Ranch series is at, too.

    For fun reading, there are better (documented?) and equally facinating cases of alien, paranormal, or cryptid activity, locales and events:

    Note: I have read every one of these books and recommend them as a distraction, or sci fi read, if nothing else!

    -The Hudson Valley: By Hynek et al.https://www.publishersweekly.com/978-0-345-34213-3 , and https://www.pinebushufo.com/pinebushpage25.htm Ellen Crystal details her many nights out and what she sees and records in upstate NY (On edit the whole book series starting with Communion by Whitley Strieber are essential and come from this same general geographic area.)

    -Mothman: https://www.reddirtreport.com/rustys-reads/book-review-mothman-prophecies-john-keel
    The Mothman Prophecies by John Keel is fantastic. The movie on the same topic is iffy.

    -South East Missouri: https://books.google.com/books/about/Project_Identification.html?id=3claAAAAYAAJ
    by scientist Harley Rutledge is a serious long-term study.

    -Gulf Breeze: https://www.thriftbooks.com/w/the-gulf-breeze-sightings_ed-walters_frances-walters/574343/
    and others works on Gulf Breeze are crazy.

    There are few others which have arisen with many witnesses, evidence, videos, images which divide the public and experts as to their reality.

    I know, it’s just a fictional tv show, not a documentary series.

    Sorry, didn't me to set you up in that way. I pretty much knew you did but just wanted to emphasize my frustration with the series.

    I like how they are running with the conspiracy narrative on the Blue Book Show. Reminds me of all the rabbit holes I went down decades back.

    The Nimitz UFO encounter video has some real credentials:

    I've watched the first 3 episodes of Skinwalker Ranch. It follows the same premise as all the rest of these sort of shows.

    But dang if they didn't get a decent video of an unidentifiable object over the ranch. Now I will have to follow where this goes after losing interest.

    But do they have this guy? I'll only watch if he's the main narrator.

    It's TV, we don't know if that is actual footage or something they added for the story.

    If you watched the episode it was most definitely indicated to be a day light observation of an object seen by at least five people, filmed which appeared and disappeared with rapidity. If this is made-up added footage it would really be bad.

    Just watched the 6th episode. IMHO this is absolute BS.

    There's a good chance that the Ground Penetrating Radar test results that were being displayed on their monitor was just the detection of a perched water table. So those tests aren't going to lead to anything startling like a huge buried object or tunnel, etc. They need a civil engineer on the team (preferably an ISU engineer)!:D

    The PhD from Alabama is probably wondering by now how much of a hit will his reputation take involving himself with these Utah good ole boys.
    From my working days in northern Utah, the guy that goes by "Dragon" is typical of what you see from the Utah natives.

    If you check out his IMDB profile it seems he decided 10 years ago he could make a living doing BS like this.

    Good find. It does seem as though he bums around doing shows like this. Most of them are very short term, like only for one season or just a couple of appearances in a show. I'm curious about what he does for a living between these short gigs.

    I would think that using his education and credentials in a real job would be more lucrative. As a cable show personality, if I were him, I wouldn't quit my day job!
