Open-eyed historical research and real scientific analysis set the stage for groundbreaking field work: high-tech expeditions to the home turf of famous monsters. Deploying state-of-the-art equipment, each episode scientifically examines the best evidence available, from pictures and video, to hair and bones, to actual eyewitness accounts.

Monster Quest Season 2!
I love this show, glad that season 2 has begun. As of now, only Mega Hog is here at Itunes. Actually, I found that episode to be poorly thought out, and poorly done. Showing hunters posing with trophys of the "Monster" this episode is based on, sort of ruins the fun. Fitting a hog with a camera, that you are then unable to follow...a less than quality episode.
great first episode!! this one really delivered. hope to see more of the same.
Another great season!
This season is better than the first one! I can not wait for the other episodes to become available!
