* DidAnastasiaSurvive: There's an episode about Anastasia Romanova, including an interview with an ancient-but-still-living Anna Anderson. In 1991, DNA evidence proved Anna Anderson was not Anastasia. Furthermore, Anastasia's body was found in 2007, proving she was killed along with the rest of her family. As a side note, the episode is clearly an artifact from a time when [[UsefulNotes/ColdWar certain issues]] prevented Western historians from having direct access to Russia. Come to think of it, that probably played a large part in how that legend survived so long.

* {{Dracula}}: There was an episode dedicated to him, complete with StockFootage from ''{{Film/Nosferatu}}'' being used to illustrate the Creator/BramStoker version of the character. There isn't really a mystery as such, since the episode mostly just relates the history of UsefulNotes/VladTheImpaler. Although the episode itself leans towards HammerAndSickleRemovedForYourProtection, it's interesting to note that it was filmed on-location in {{UsefulNotes/Romania}} at a time when that country was ruled by the more modern tyrant of Nicolae Ceaușescu (who admired Vlad the Impaler, no less!)

The series conducted investigations into the controversial and paranormal (e.g., [=UFOs=], Bigfoot, and the Loch Ness Monster). Additionally, it featured episodes about mysterious historical events and personalities such as Anna Anderson/Grand Duchess Anastasia, the Lincoln Assassination, the Jack the Ripper murders, infamous cults (e.g. Jim Jones), and missing persons, cities, and ships (e.g., UsefulNotes/AmeliaEarhart, Jimmy Hoffa, D. B. Cooper, the Mary Celeste, the Titanic, the lost Roanoke Colony). Because the show often presented offbeat subjects and controversial theories, each episode's opening credits include a verbal disclaimer about the potentially conjecturable nature of the evidence and theories to be presented:

* TwentyMinutesIntoTheFuture: The episode "Future Life" focused on predicting how people would live in the twenty-first-century. The progress of space travel and medical science is wildly overestimated while the phenomenal future predicted for computers is accurate if vague. The only really specific computer prediction is still a bit fantastical, however, with its suggestion that NeuralImplanting could lead to a {{Transhuman}}.

* ShoutOut: When the subtitle of the third StarTrek movie was announced, many viewers and reviewers noticed the similarity between it and this series.
