My personal slice of Heaven on Earth has done it again. Or at least he did last week.
Last Thursday marked the beginning of season four of Destination Truth. The day before the season premiere aired, I stated that I was skeptical this season could stand up against last season. Well, if the first episode is any indicator of what to expect during season four, us Destination Truth fans are in for a treat.
Last week’s episode kicked off with an investigation of the Pompeii city ruins. For those who aren’t familiar with Pompeii, it is an ancient city that was buried under ash during the eruption of Mt. Vesuvius in 79 A.D. It’s believed that over 2,000 residents of Pompeii died following the eruption. With such a large number of deaths, it’s no wonder that the city is believed to be haunted.
More ash-covered goodness (and video!) after the jump…
I must admit, though, there was one part during the Pompeii investigation that tugged at my heart strings and made me choke up. Josh and his merry band of cohorts stopped by the Garden of the Fugitives, where some of Pompeii’s residents were entombed in ash when they attempted to escape the city. Plaster was later poured into the hollow spaces found within the ash that marked where the residents died. There was one set of casts that appeared to be a mother and child. For a mom, it’s hard to see a sight like that and not feel sadness at the loss of life.
On a lighter note, I predicted last week that Josh would have a new lady on his team, and I was right. She’s a brunette named Ali. Ali isn’t the only new person on Josh’s team, though. There’s also three new men and BearTalkie, a pivotal new member of the group. (He’s a combination walkie talkie teddy bear.)
As for this week, Team Truth will be investigating Angkor Wat and the legend of a Canadian lake monster.
Nicole Ireland lives in East Armpit, Maine and drives a skidder when she isn’t writing. She once shot a man just for snoring but she sucked at shooting guns and only got him in the leg and then felt awful and smothered him cause his screaming was worse than the snoring had been. When the cops came she said he had shot first and they believed her cause she’s a witch. She’s clever and she’s quiet. She’s so quiet you might just not notice her there. You might just fall asleep. But god help you if you snore. Look what happened to the last guy.
Has he done Little Big Horn yet Nikki? That’s the other site with all the grave markers where they got shot that reminds me of the plaster casts.
I don’t think he has, but it would be cool if he did.
another american ASSHOLE who wanna look “Tough”?
take more tattoos than the “Madden-Sissy-brothers”!!
Well, CA, it depends on your definition of “tough”. Josh is a very adventurous soul. His job, and the places he travels, require a certain amount of toughness. He wouldn’t do them otherwise. So in my book, he’s tough. Much tougher, in fact, then most men I know.
I would pass on the snake around the neck gig.. tough enough for me.
