I use to love this show! But, it has become trite, passé and predictable. Josh's humor has become repetitive and dry. If u want to captivate your audience, shake-up the plot and don't be so predictable. So sad that I have to write this.
Too much Gates, too little substance...
Obviously, children would be far better off reading about their various interests rather than suffering Gate’s self absorbed interference.
This show has historical topics that I've never heard about before watching this show for the first time. I would recommend this show to anyone for its entertainment and topics, since history is my favorite topic. Josh Gates is a great host and I can't get enough of his humor.
Best show on travel channel!!!
Josh Gates delivers a solid performance as host, with the same adventure, knowledge, wit and humor that made Destination Truth a success minus the team (where is Ryder, Josh?). Join Josh as he searches for treasure in some of the worlds most interesting and remote places. Buy the season pass as I did, you will not be disappointed. Here is to the hopes for a season 2 and more.
My Favorite New Travel Show
By the culture synthetic
If you love adventure travel, exotic destinations, & mysteries you'll love this show. Explore the world with the witty Josh Gates, (former host of Destination Truth) his great sense of humor & willingness travel into places most hosts would not dare, makes the show exiting, light hearted, & captivating in a unique style. I did not hesitate on ordering the season pass after watching the first episode! I was a fan of Destination Truth, yet the travel aspect was always my favorite part of the show. From what I've seen, Expedition Unknown is an upgrade. Brilliantly immersing you in the adventure through a richer visual lens. EU's superb cinematography &, in-depth dive into the history, & essence, of the exotic locations featured in series; is what Destination Truth lacked.
If your looking for a ghost/ crypto-zoology
Show Expedition Unknown distinguishes itself from DT by exploring global legends, & mysteries, rather than sprinting through dark woods with night vision cams, chasing the Jersey Devil or Bigfoot. I can't wait to see what adventures the new series will bring. Five stars all the way! I hope the travel channel will bring many seasons to come.
I love travel shows, in my opinion, Anthony Bourdain & Josh Gates are the only hosts I've seen that has the mojo or "the funk". Watch the show, you won't be disappointed!
Another Home run
This show is as good or better than destination truth. I highly recommend it!!
Fan Of Josh Gates
I loved "Destination Truth" and I'm really a fan of this new one, Eppedition Unknown. I like anything with Josh Gates in it.
Loved Destination Truth and Josh’s new show doesn’t disappoint. I’m glad the Travel Channel decided to produce this show. It may take a few episodes to get used to the new format but the first two episodes have had very interesting topics. A+ show!
A fun, entertaining show
Josh Gates makes this show. The mysteries are pretty standard and the chance of him discovering anything is minute. But he is very personable, has a great sense of humor, and he's very entertaining to watch. I hope that this won't be the only season they make.
Josh Gates, UPGRADED
By Mandogg the Great
Any big fan of Josh Gates remembers his past 5 seasons of Destination Truth on Syfy. Now we have this new show, Expedition Unknown on Travel Channel. Nostalgia is great, but the quality of this show is so much better than DT - better quality of filming, better story telling, and getting MORE of the story and locals. Instead of compressing 2 stories into one episode and being treated as Syfy filler space, EXU gets the full treatment it deserves. This is going to be a heck of an adventure!
