I guess I should be asking, DID you watch Monster Week, since by the time you are reading this it is likely that Monster Week will be at least partially over. What exactly is “Monster Week”? It’s Animal Planet’s version of Discovery Channel’s Shark Week, a week of monster and cryptid-related programming airing on that former network. (The same company owns both networks, just FYI.) Last week I was a little disappointed in the line-up. How about this year? There’s gonna be plenty of FINDING BIGFOOT on display. (SPOILER ALERT: They don’t. Find Bigfoot, that is. If they had, we’d have heard about it long before now.) Other offerings are THE LOST KINGDOM OF THE YETI; WEIRD, TRUE, AND FREAKY; MONSTERSOF THE ABYSS; and FEAR ISLAND (in which scientists attempt to track down the reputed largest bear to ever live).
You can find the full lineup for this year here. Don’t forget to set those DVRs! Or, um, I hope you didn’t forget to set your DVRs. You can catch up on any episodes you missed from previous years, too, so if you happen to have missed one this go-round, there will always be next year.
