Ruminations on Fact or Faked
Meh. That about sums it up. While I thought their experiments were sloppy and conclusions hasty, I appreciated their thoughtful (if sometimes vapid) approach. In the premiere episode, the team managed to debunk one video while leaving another unanswered (and then some). It's worth giving it another shot, I would say. In the future, I would hope they don't cling to the same tired tactics that drag shows like Destination Truth into the muck: the melodramatic "what's that?" moments; the overly-hyped cliff hangers before cutting to commercials; and the overbearing soundtrack.
