"As with the five other jammed packed boxed sets, including Ghosts, Miracles, Psychics, UFO's and Bizarre Murders, this "Strange Legends" Unsolved Mysteries DVD should also be on your shelf. Nearly 27 stories hosted by Legend Robert Stack (nearly 7+ hours of cozy documentaries for your viewing pleasure is sure to keep you wanting more and more.
Some stories, while better than others, will keep you entertained completely. You'll learn about the possible curse of Karate Legend Bruce Lee and son Brendon, The Search for the Holy Grail (the cup that Jesus drank at the Last Supper. The incredible search for Big Foot in the southwest, the legend of Billy The Kidd, was he shot and killed or did he live to be an old man? You'll go back in time to Elvis' last day and learn how some believe he committed suicide. The incredible and historic story of John Wilkes Booth is also included, there could be proof that he escaped after assasinating President Lincoln and lived until the early 1900's! The crazy story of a living Moth Man that plagues a small town in Virgina leaving everyone wondering what they saw. This and tons more as you explore this mongo DVD collection.
As always, Robert Stack thrives as the narrator of the series and will be sorely missed. Keep the legend alive of Unsolved Mysteries and make sure you get every box set for some of the greatest documentarires ever put together. The 4 discs also include commentaries by producers/directors/creators on select segments during your stay. Enjoy!"
What An Eerie Series...

I must say, that when I saw my first episode of the Unsolved Mysteries series, I was utterly spellbound. How creepy and awe-inspiring that a show would be made about the worlds most intriguing and perplexing phenomena. To this day, I still love the mystique that surrounds this program, and adore Robert Stack, as one of the greatest hosts of all time! I was saddened to learn of his death a few years back.
My interest in ghosts was spawned by this part of the series. I had always wondered whether there indeed are spirits that live on after death. "Gordy's Ghost" is one of my favorite episodes, as it tells the story of a young girl who one day sees the ghost of a strange man. The girl would talk to this ghost as though he was a real person, interacting with him in a very human way. It was later, however, when the girl told her family of her new friend, that his true identity was learned, and that it was discovered that the man had passed on many years previously. Identifying himself to the girl as "Gordy," the girl was never afraid or suspicious of him, always trusting him as if he were a lifelong friend. Truly mystifying!
I have recently performed a Google Web search, and learned that the "Chupacabra" segment is episode #385, one I have been looking for, for some time. I had not been able to locate this episode on the "Ghosts" set. If any of you readers might know which set episode 385 is on, please do provide this information, as I know that I am not the only Unsolved Mysteries fan who is looking for it!
I still get goosebumps when I think of the shows that I have seen in this series. I think Unsolved Mysteries will forever live on as one of the greatest programs to grace television.
Enjoy in Good Health,
Good but Alot was left out

"I was a fan of the show when it's intial season of 1988 began. The program had a few 2-hour specials that ran in 1987 on NBC. At that time, I was only 13 but was intrigued by the ghost and Ufo Stories. The early seasons had many Legend stories about possible hidden treasures. There must have been atleast 3 or 4 hidden treasure stories that were omitted by this boxed set. My favorite was the one about a Gold Buddha Statue worth millions in the Phillipines but later was taken by the Phillipine government. In addition, others left out were the Mummy's curse (many killed after touching ancient egyptian artifacts), Ice Man(a primitive man put on exhibition), Chupacabris, loch ness in Upstate NY, other loch ness story in Canada. They could have omitted the Agatha Christie, RFK Pix, and the Elvis Twin stories and put the ones that I mentioned. Maybe the produces John Cosgrove and Terry Meurer will do a second Legends boxed set? But overall, it is a good set and will please the fans of the series."
