Show explains gar and jumps to sturgeon
This show, as an ecology major and as a scientifically literate person, is physically painful to watch. As my emphasis is on fisheries, the most egregious insult so far happens about 21 minutes in to the first episode, where the explorer clearly describes a gar, with it horse like head, rows of teeth, and armored (ganoid) scales, they even show a drawing of a car, and then they proceed to declare that he was likely describing a lake sturgeon which.... don't have visible teeth, only have five rows of scales called scutes and are obviously not what the writer was describing. The lake they are talking about is up north,a bit out of the modern range of far, but, and I am exasperated that this needs to be said, a gar is exponentially more likely then a pliesosaur or any other prehistric creature. It is physically painful to me, that they clearly bend and break facts to fit their narratives and conclusions. This is a show that can be entertaining if you half watch it, or if you want to see experts weigh in and their conclusions doubted and second guessed by people with a vested interest in monsters being real.

Nostalgic Guilty Pleasure
I enjoyed this show as a kid, and I enjoy it to this day as a guilty pleasure, but Monster Quest was never very informative or ground-breaking. The monster hunters never find anything (aside from some iffy video footage in the giant squid episode, and some genuinely compelling sound evidence in the Champ episode), but it's fun and spooky hearing eyewitness accounts of creatures that may or may not exist. I like to think of cryptids as modern folklore, and in that context, this is still a fun/dumb watch. If you want something more scholarly or thoroughly researched though, you're going to have to look elsewhere.

I Gave Up After Two Episodes...Lot's of Talk, So Few Real Facts
I picked the two I thought would be of most interest to me. That would be the one about dogs being attacked by something and the one about fish attacking humans. I’ve got to say I wasn’t too impressed by these shows. They were more about trying to find something and little about finding anything, at least anything of great interest. I’m not going to watch any of the others as a result. You may find these better but I’m really thinking much ado about nothing.

A waste of time
I came into this program as a skeptic and left after two episodes even more skeptical than ever. As with all shows about monsters or the paranormal there is nothing that counts as actual evidence. Science is misused and misinterpreted to fit the researchers presupposed conclusions. And most episodes end with the so called evidence being inconclusive. Cryptozoology is not a real scientific field of study and most of what they claim to be science turns out to be pseudoscience ie not real science at all.

Possibilities
I liked all the Seasons of Monster Quest-I wish they'd bring it back. Our world has some wild Flora & Fauna & creatures we didn't know are migrating to spots that they've never been seen before. I say it's Climate Change, loss of habitat, man shooting anything that moves or that's strange to them (THAT'S getting old). The alleged "killer fish" eyeroll attacking humans--oh no, not humans! How many "people" has this alleged killer fish really eat?? All I saw was a predator in it's own natural habitat. Why can't people leave anything alone?

Terrible. Just terrible.
This is so bad haha. Just a lot of talk, a lot of repetition. Absolutely no physical proof of anything. I found myself saying.. “What does that even mean?”, and “What is that person even talking about?” for every episode I sat through. One of the most pointless uninformative shows I’ve ever watched. Every episode that ends you’ll find yourself saying “that’s it?”.

I am so enjoying this series...
There are a lot of unexplained creatures out there. Love Loren Sandborn. Some of the DNA experts are getting it wrong th. There's a place called Plum Island where htey literally create strange hybrid creatures that have washed up on the shores of the US, such as the Montauk monster. Still watching the series, thx Amazon, fascinating stuff! Highly recommend.
