Somehow, when I was a kid, I completely missed out on In Search of..., a documentary television series that ran from 1976 - 1982 where scientists, researchers and technicians traveled the world investigating the unexplained. I'm baffled on how I missed out on this show growing up, as it is something I surely would have watched with glee each week. Regardless, come November 4th, Visual Entertainment makes it possible to finally check out this classic show when it releases the complete series on DVD.
From the press release:
So popular, it spawned six books, In Search of... took a fresh look at such controversial and mystifying topics as the paranormal; witchcraft, notorious murders; infamous cults; conspiracy theories; missing persons, cities and ships; naturally occurring phenomena; scientific breakthroughs; age-old myths; the lore surrounding historical events and figures; and the downright peculiar!
From the rumored existence of Nazi plunder to the real-life inspiration for Sherlock Holmes to tracking the Loch Ness monster to reincarnation to UFO cover ups (and much more!), it’s an entertaining romp that no sci-fi fan, mystery enthusiast, scientific devotee or history buff will want to miss!
INCLUDES: 152 episodes on 21 discs (approx. 63+ hours). BONUS: Two Rod Serling-hosted specials, which aired prior to the start of the Nimoy-hosted series; and the re-launched 2002 series (eight hour-long episodes) hosted by Mitch Pileggi (The X-Files).
In Search of... The Complete Series is presented in full screen (aspect ratio: 4x3) and stereo and will have an MSRP of $109.99.
Hot damn, and just in time for Christmas.
