I’m feeling sad already. My favorite show on television, THE SECRET OF SKINWALKER RANCH on the History Channel, is about to wrap up its second season. In this case, “season” is a relative term. Back in the days of standard network television, the average length for a television series was 22 episodes, or sometimes 24. 13 was considered a half-season. With shows like my beloved SKINWALKER RANCH, though, we get ten. Ten measly episodes. I understand that, practically, they can’t do any more than that. But I sure wish they could.
Viewers who are all atwitter that the team might just solve the big mystery during the season finale will be disappointed. They are doomed to forever remain disappointed, I fear, as the “mystery” of the Ranch is something that simply cannot be solved. Not in full, not ever. Why? Because it is beyond anything the human mind can grasp. Yes, I genuinely believe that. There are some things that are just too big for us puny humans. That doesn’t mean we can’t figure out *some* of what’s going on, though. In fact they already have. And I’ve no doubt they will discover even more in time. I’m in no hurry for the answers. I’m enjoying the search. I only wish we didn’t have to wait a whole year for the next installment of experiments.
