in Search of…

Extraterrestrials… Magic & Witchcraft… Missing Persons… Myths & Monsters… Lost Civilizations… Strange Phenomena…

This series presents information based in part on theory and conjecture. The producers purpose is to suggest some possible explanations but not necessarily the only ones to the mysteries we will examine.

When I was a kid, I read a book The Bermuda Triangle by Charles Berlitz. The book started my life-long fascination with the unexplained.

The TV series In Search Of (1976-1982) also offered a glimpse into weird phenomena. Now the entire series is available as a 21 disc set, comprised of the original 144 Leonard Nimoy episodes, plus the short run Mitch Pileggi hosted episodes from 2002 (the Nikola Tesla segment being the highlight of this series). The set also includes a bonus disc including Ancient Astronauts and Ancient Mysteries, hosted by Rod Serling. All this is packaged as seven separate DVD cases, each containing 3 discs, within a cool cardboard enclosure.

The original Nimoy episodes are the bomb and bring back nostalgic memories. The topics are varied, ranging from Nazi Treasures, Bigfoot, Ghosts, Harry Houdini, The Bermuda Triangle, and ESP. My favorite? I love The Caste of Secrets (Season 5) about the mysterious Coral Castle, near Homestead, Florida, and built by Latvian immigrant Edward Leedskalnin (1887-1955). How that guy moved those gigantic blocks of limestone continues to puzzle me to this very day.

Now I need to stop blogging and catchup on a box of In Search Of…
