Supernatural Investigator-Canadian Skeptic Documentary Series

VisionTV is premiering a Canadian produced show called Supernatural Investigator beginning Jan. 27.  It is hosted by multiple award winning science fiction author Robert J. Sawyer.

The VisionTV press release:

The Antichrist lives among us, preparing for the battle of Armageddon. Sunken stones off the coast of Florida point the way to the lost city of Atlantis. Mayan priests used mysterious crystal skulls to communicate with the spirit world. And the great buildings of Washington, D.C. conceal the symbols of a Masonic master plan.

Crazy ideas? Maybe. But a surprising number of North Americans believe in these and other manifestations of the paranormal – from reincarnation and remote viewing to astrology and alien abduction.

. . .

Produced for VisionTV by some of Canada’s leading independent production companies, the Supernatural Investigator documentaries bring rigorous real-life scrutiny to the murky world of paranormal phenomena. Each half-hour episode follows an expert investigator as he or she searches for the truth behind so-called supernatural happenings.

These investigators – among them futurist Mac Tonnies, archaeologist Joel Palka, science writer and adventurer Jeff Warren, magician Jeremy Bennett, and musician Tara Slone – confront unearthly mysteries with a clear and critical eye: Have extraterrestrials visited this planet? Did vengeful demons hound a Canadian journalist to his death? Why did the U.S. government experiment with ESP during the Cold War? And did the world’s greatest escape artist somehow slip the bonds of death?

The first show is “The Antichrist” Tuesday, Jan. 27, 10:30 p.m. ET / 7:30 p.m. PT

Other than wondering why is this on the predominantly religion based VisionTV, I think this is great.  I have seen the Naked Anthropologist on Vision so they have some science.  I can not imagine this happening on a US religious channel.

Thanks for the heads up from Kent at The Million Calorie March

  1. I’m going to go out on a limb and guess that this show is not going to be very sceptical. The show seems to be based on the argument from popularity. I am very glad I stopped watching TV ages ago
