Yes!! Even though it apparently won't look or sound like the old show, something is better than nothing. Watching old stories on youtube has really whetted my appetite for more.

EDIT: How 'bout a link that works?

Your link doesn't work. I think you mean http://www.tvsquad.com/2007/06/26/unsolved-mysteries-returning-to-television/ but you might as well go to the REAL source, B&C (broadcastingcable.com). Is Lifetime not airing it right now? I wonder who'll pick it up - my guess would be...one of the A&E children.

Dang, sorry. Actually, Lifetime has demoted UM re-runs to their offspring network, "Lifetime Real Women."

That theme music still scares the crap out of me. During the first year or so of the show I was a wee lad of single-digits and anytime I'd be at my grandparents the show would be on late at night (late for me, at least) and it would always be a story on UFOs that would freak me out.

If I ever woke up in the middle of the night and heard that music playing I would most likely scream like a little girl. Don't tell anyone.

Yeah, that music gives me the chills a little bit just thinking about it..

Hooray for the show coming back though, I love shows like that.

Meh...I was always a bigger fan of "In Search Of..." or even "History's Mysteries" The only UM episodes I liked were the ones about UFO's and Bigfoot.

I even liked the short-lived ISO remake on Sci-Fi a few years ago with Mitch "Picard on Steroids" Pilleggi. Always a sucker for paranormal investigative shows.

Yeah, I liked that show too. They used to rotate that in with other shows in huge blocks on Sci-Fi in the am/afternoon....don't know if they do that anymore though.

Anyone ever watch the show Beyond Belief: Fact or Fiction? That might be my 2nd or 3rd favorite show ever. Tremendous stuff.

I thought that the show's premise itself was better than its execution of that premise. I think there are certainly factual stories that don't seem like they could be possibly true but are, and you certainly can create interesting stories that would seem real enough even though they are made up.

Unfortunately, the show chose to play loose with the term "fact", I guess so they could go for more sensational stories. So basically the definitions went like this: If we made it up, it's "fiction". If somebody else made it up, it's "fact". To me, that took away a lot of what could have been fun about the show. I think it would be a lot more fun trying to tell real stories from fake ones rather than trying to determine who made up the fake story.

Good points, but I do think some of the stories that they said were true probably were. I never did believe the kid in the closet story was true, but it is my favorite story. I liked the show just to see some of the creepy stuff they put on.. I think guessing between fact and fiction always came secondary for me.

Question: Why is The Reaping coming out on a Thursday? And has any movie ever come out on a Thursday? Seems odd to me, especially when The Reaping just seems like a generic horror movie.
