by Summer Suzuki: TV Review: Destination Truth 3.08 – “Werewolf/Arica Monster
Werewolves and dinosaurs. I mean, what could possibly make this episode better?
First case is checking out the forests of Romania for werewolves. Not just the home of the vampire, Romania also is maggoty with werewolves. Recently to whenever this episode was filmed, the locals of a town dug up a corpse, removed its heart, and drank its blood in an arcane ritual to ward off werewolves. That is so unsanitary; didn’t these guys ever read Interview with the Vampire? You’re not supposed to drink the blood of a dead man. Duh.
Anyway, the team heads out to Bucharest and promptly gets detained at customs for a bit. I guess if you put down “werewolf hunting” as your purpose for being in the country, and you don’t look like Hugh Jackman, the local officials are going to have some questions for you. After that, they speak with a Romanian anthropologist and werewolf expert. He informs Josh that the werewolf tradition/belief is pre-historic in Romania, and points them in the direction of the most recent activity for sightings. They make a mad dash to the one train that heads to the back forty of Romania, barely making it in time, and the Hogwarts Express takes them from Bucharest to Sibiu.

By Natalie Abrams at TV Guide– V: Sit Down with Visitors’ Leader Morena Baccarin
ABC’s V has finally arrived and, boy, did the Visitors make one heck of a first impression. While most of the world puts their faith in these new alien friends, Erica Evans (Elizabeth Mitchell) and others come to find out that they’re not all they’re “cracked up to be.” Pulling the strings to keep their dirty little secret is Anna (Morena Baccarin), the Vs fearless and seemingly ruthless leader.
TVGuide.com: V doesn’t seem to be your typical sci-fi show, though it boasts many actors who’ve been in the genre before.
Morena Baccarin: We don’t see ourselves as sci-fi people for the most part. It’s not like we’re talking a different language, like an alien language. Elizabeth was on a sci-fi show and [Alan Tudyk] was on Firefly with me, but I don’t feel like V is a sci-fi show. There’s not one big sci-fi fiasco. It’s a show about heart and people and relationships. There’s some spaceships thrown in there, sure, but the sci-fi element is evened out with other things.
TVGuide.com: What is the Visitors’ ultimate goal?
Baccarin: You’ll have to watch to see, but by Episode 4 you get a very good idea that we’re not what we’re all cracked up to be. There’s more to it than we’re saying. We are here for more than just a short while, and we’re here for additional reasons than just water and minerals.

I never watched Eastwick, so I don’t know if this is a good thing or a bad thing. And I like Destination Truth, even though Josh irritates me because he’s so cocky. The ghost hunting one in Chernobyl was really good. And I really enjoyed the first episode of V and I’m excited for the rest of the series.
Are you disappointed about Eastwick? Do you think it’s possible that werewolves or something similar could exist? What do you think of V?
