I was afraid of that.
I saw a clip on Facebook where Bob buys Bobo a Samurai sword. It was only a minute or so, and I figured it was funny. I have the episode on the DVR at home, and now I'm wondering how it will leave me feeling when I get home and watch it.

But doesn't that pretty much describe the BFRO? (dives for cover).
I got the impression the episode does not elevate the reputations of Bigfoot researchers. ... Possibly it was the editing process that was unkind. I don't know, but I just got the impression the show portrayed Matt Moneymaker and the other guys as a bunch of hooligans/weirdos with hi tech equipment.
And yes, Bobo carries that sword around for some of the episode.
On the plus side, they got a possible response to one of their calls, which Mr. Saget seemed quite happy about. Matt proved that woodland rats do show up on a thermal camera, as well as rocks. He also proved that a passenger in his car is a brave man indeed! Or maybe that was the editing?
All-in-all, I would say the episode was a plus for bigfooting, as they got a possible response to a simulated vocalization, which is more than some monster dedicated shows have gotten. It was certainly a minus for the BFRO, or is the saying, "even bad press is good press"?

I watched the episode with the BFRO outing. As it was presented, I got the impression the episode does not elevate the reputations of Bigfoot researchers. I don't like those kind of shows/interviews myself. Possibly it was the editing process that was unkind. I don't know, but I just got the impression the show portrayed Matt Moneymaker and the other guys as a bunch of hooligans/weirdos with hi tech equipment. The investigation procedures observed in the episode: 1. Farting in a sound dish......2. Nice close up on the yells (compare that segment to the news team having the trailer park resident describe what the tornado sounded like.) then more later at the bait station activities.......3. presentation of facts: "Bigfoot loves beer." I didn't know that myself. I wonder what brand of beer Bigfoot normally drinks? Nice going guys....very professional.
Yes, you called it Chris. Elevate the weird and off-beat. I wish someone could do a straight ahead show with some action. Not turning it into a realty bit.

There are just some people in Bigfootery that simply give that heebie jeebie EB feeling. You know, where your whole body shivers and you exclaim YUCK! I get that feeling from John Cartwright, especially when he proclaims he's the WGBH. My dog has more class.- Skookumqwest

It's time to be taken seriously.

To be fair, I really believe the BFRO were victims of the edit. I'm sure Matt and the Guys/Gals are all professionals but the segments left in the show made for a poor presentation of professionalism. I did enjoy the response they got, it was the high point of the show for me. Chris B.
Having worked with the BFRO on several projects (lending tech support), I can say that your assessment is correct. They are professionals, they do take it seriously. And I agree that the final edit is probably more responsible for the feel of the show than anything else.
My problem is that shows like this are going to attract a lot of followers from a social standpoint rather than a research standpoint, and that this type of show has the potential to reduce Sasquatch research to something tantamount to seeing Elvis on a piece of toast. I'm not saying this show specifically does that, but that this show and others like it have this potential, and it's troubling.
