Has it really been nine seasons? I can't remember that far back, but Finding Bigfoot is certainly the longest running bigfoot show. Nine seasons really isn't that long when you compare it to the amount of time some people look for bigfoot. Some search their entire lives.
Has it really been nine seasons since four intrepid Bigfoot researchers began their quest for the legendary creature on Animal Planet’s ongoing “Finding Bigfoot”? If you’ve only seen, say, the first episode of Season One and worry about now needing a scorecard to keep up with the proceedings, fear not: Finding Bigfoot is one of the most consistently predictable reality shows (is that an oxymoron?) on the air. And that might just be its saving grace. Confused? Well, read on!
Let’s summarize for the uninitiated populace out there that has not yet caught hep to the cheesy fun that is Animal Planet’s jaw-dropping version of Ed Wood’s “Plan 9 From Outer Space.” The premise is simple: Four investigators – Leader of the pack and founder of the B.F.R.O.

The team usually sets their compasses to so-called “hot spots” that report unusual number of sightings and then spend one-two days and nights investigating the area and conducting “town halls” where scores of witnesses to this strange phenomenon turn out to share their encounters with the foursome. From these town hall meetings, the most intriguing and sensational cases are culled by Matt and the gang and these are quickly looked into, usually in the form of an overnight trek through dense wooded regions.
