The Past Revealed in Buried Worlds with Don Wildman

Buried Worlds With Don Wildman' Illuminates Real Paranormal Mysteries of  The World, Exclusive Interview and Preview - Tv Shows AceBy Ed Sum
(The Vintage Tempest)

If Don Wildman is not careful, he’s going to step on toes and piss off the wrong people (living or dead) in Buried Worlds. Before joining Travel Channel, he was the voice behind the series Cities of the Underworld and Mysteries at the Museum. With this latest series at its halfway point, the formula is firmly established. It sends this host into the field, getting involved in seances and perhaps meeting people that he really shouldn’t in the quest for answers to well-known unsolved mysteries.

He better be careful in what he digs up. It may not be pleasant not only for the viewer, but also those better versed than him when dealing with the occult.

“In Search of” Change, than Another Season with Zachary Quinto

In Search of... PosterBy Ed Sum
(The Vintage Tempest)

The original In Search of TV series ran for six years, with Leonard Nimoy as host, and it dealt with a broad spectrum of “unsolvable” mysteries–ranging from the disappearance of famous individuals to the paranormal. Instead of boldly going to where no man has gone before, this series is revisiting familiar mysteries with the new Spock from the movies–Zachary Quinto–trying to be as excited or curious about the topic at hand.

The last episode, titled “End of the World,” feels appropriate to conclude the two season series. It never had the same enthusiasm which I enjoyed from the original run. Plus, History Channel has not revealed if this show is going to continue.

To offer updates on whether or not certain mysteries can get closure–namely on where the missing Roanoke colony went–would benefit this program greatly than to leave viewers hanging. Some of them are worth revisiting from time to time in other shows, but when it’s the same ol’ material, to make one program better than another requires some original, if not unorthodox thought.

When Doves Fly in Thundercats Roar

2 Jul

By Ed Sum
(The Vintage Tempest)

Newborn kitties are always entertaining to watch, but when made anthropomorphic in Thundercats Roar, watching them stumble about for hours on end got boring. I really wanted the 2011 series to get a season two, but it just wasn’t meant to be.

All we got was an outline of what would have been spectacular.

Don’t Walk Away from this Documentary on Who Farted?

26 Jun

Who Farted? The world's first climate change documentary comedy. | The  Screening Room, 120 Princess St, Kingston | To Do Canada

World Broadcast Premiere

Documentary Channel
June 28, 2020
9:00pm ET/PT

SPOILER ALERT
Albert Nerenberg and Nik Sheehan‘s hilarious and insightful documentary shows cutting the cheese can be an art form. Who Farted? doesn’t always mean ill tidings. But, yes, it’s possible to destroy the world from unleashing too much gas into the environment.
All those questions people not wanting to ask about the origins of this needed bodily function are answered in detail. This ranges from learning how we generate this gas to its impact on society as a whole. The absurd is hilariously examined by visiting the World Fart Championships held in Utajärvi, Finland. But there’s more hard pressed concerns, which is primarily about whether or not Nature can handle all this methane and sulphur being unleashed–especially by cows. That is, are we headed towards global warming?
