BEAST HUNTER: Man Ape of Sumatra

National Geographic Channel - Original Air Date: 3/5/11

Hunting host Pat Spain goes to Sumatra in this kick off for a series of monster hunting shows - boldly going where Josh Gates (Destination Truth) and MonsterQuest have gone before.  This show does the usual witness interviews and chats with locals.  Some of the witnesses, especially the naturalists, are very compelling.  Then Pat tromps around the jungle looking for the beast.  And, of course, doesn't find it.

While this might be okay for newbies, mostly it seems like a less entertaining version of Destination Truth.  I expect a little more meat from my National Geographic shows.
