From: UFO UpDates - Toronto <post.nul> Date: Thu, 26 Jul 2012 05:00:45 -0400 Archived: Thu, 26 Jul 2012 05:00:45 -0400 Subject: Chasing UFOs Stars Blast Their Own Show Source: HuffPo http://tinyurl.com/cta98vu 07/25/20 'Chasing UFOs' Stars Blast Their Own Show Lee Speigel It's been said there's no such thing as bad publicity, but when the stars of your own show give it a thumbs-down, that might be the exception. The National Geographic Channel premiered Chasing UFOs, an eight-episode reality TV show last month, focusing on a trio of investigators traversing America in search of the truth of unexplained UFO reports, alleged alien abductions and reported military cover-ups. On the heels of less-than-positive reviews and viewer comments, two of the show's stars - James Fox and Ben McGee - revealed their own dissatisfaction with Chasing UFOs, complaining that the show had placed more emphasis on entertainment value than a serious look at the UFO subject. Fox: "I know how disappointed all of you are. I am too. It's not the show that was sold to both myself and scientist Ben. Two months into it, we were off to a great start; good locations, solid witnesses and some opportunities for Ben to apply his field research as a geologist at some crash sites. Very exciting stuff. Unfortunately, when we actually got out in the field, we began to realize that they were more interested in poking around at night than allocating the time necessary during the day as, apparently (so we were told), Americans love watching others sneak around at night from the comfort of their couches. For the most part, it was gratuitous nighttime baloney. ... I promise I'll either quit or change my position within the show because at least I can make it all make some sense. The show does get a bit better further down the road, but not a lot. ... My credibility and reputation has, deservedly, taken a serious hit." [More at site... ] Listen to 'Strange Days...
