** Well I think being a shapeshifter the skinwalker should count. What I don't get is what was he traying to do.

* Enigma Corporation, if thats not the name for people you send in when you think it's paranormal nothing is. And yet there not what gives?

* For being one of the favorites, the episode ''Devil Dragon'' has one massive plot hole. The entire conclusion is based on the premise that he was bitten by the creature earlier, was infected by the bacteria in its mouth and then dragged off at the end. However, there are a few problems. First off, the guy was bitten by the creature and treated it almost as a bug bite or snakebite. Yeah there were some pretty big red marks on his arm, but he doesn't seem to realize that he was just bitten by ''a lizard that ranges from fifteen to nearly thirty feet in length'', which is a bit of a reach even if it was a matter of this being one of the smaller specimens. Secondly, given that the Megalania's behavior in the episode was plainly supposed to be based off of Komodo Dragon behavior (which they said as much during the episode itself), and that the Komodo Dragon ascribes to the same school off "Attack Once for Massive Damage" as the Great White Shark, before retreating to wait for the target to bleed out/weaken from infection, the hiker should have had a chunk of his arm ''ripped the hell off'', not those lame bite marks. Kind of sad really.

* Does no one know that videocameras have a VCR function that allow you to see what you just shot? So when people say, "What? What?" you can actually ''show'' them?

** You'd be surprised how passive a predator can be when stalking its prey, especially since it has to avoid being seen or else its prey might flee--or worse, fight back. The later rampage could be explained by a mix of aggression (the vampires ''lived'' in that house, after all, and earlier one of them had attacked an exterminator because he had invaded its den) and the fact that its fruitless hunts were beginning to push it to its limits.

to:

*** They could very well have been attempting to evoke the feeling of the "original" wolfman played by Lon Chaney, Jr., who actually still looked very human except for being covered in fur and acting like a wolf. Admittedly, that's unlikely, since the werewolf art on the official website shows the titular creature as looking essentially like a human (specifically [[spoiler: Sophie from the same episode]]), hair and all, except with a wolf-like snout. My best guess is that the werewolf was mid-transformation at the end of the episode, as suggested above.




to:

** The other two officers may not have been able to fire once they were attacked, either because they were panicking too much to think straight since they were being mauled by giant monkeys, or they may dropped their guns in the attack. It still doesn't justify why they weren't more on their toes given all the other evidence around them.




to:

*** At the end of the Bigfoot episode, the poacher attacks the park ranger, trying to break into the building she's in, but is suddenly attacked offscreen by the Bigfoot and found strung up in one of his own traps, reminiscent of ''Predator''. As to ''why'', it's often implied in fiction that Bigfoot as a species is sentient or at least intelligent, and ''Lost Tapes'' was no exception: the ranger notes that Bigfoot seems to recognize that she's trying to help and is watching over her in turn, then the poacher attacks her. [[BerserkButton Big mistake.]]




to:

** The implication seems to be that the Thunderbird was carrying him off somewhere but dropped him, and perhaps didn't try again because there were lots of scary motor vehicles below it.

*** Humans are a species animals, you know, and since zombies seem to have been human... so there's the justification.

**** Seems to just be a trait of the show. A few episodes are named giving a name that more describes the creature instead of what the actual name is. The one focused on Megalania was called "Devil Dragon," the one about Black Shuck was "Hellhound," the giant centipedes were "Death Crawler." They probably think these names just sound cooler.

*** I have a theory that the cultists [[CriticalResearchFailure didn't do their research]] and thought Quetzalcoatl wouldn't mind the sacrifice (I don't think it was ever said that a sacrifice ''couldn't'' summon Quetzalcoatl, just that he actively discouraged them). When they summoned him, he was so angry that he [[KarmicDeath killed them all as a punishment]].
