'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."
