Unfortunately, The UK will not get to see the series for a while, so unless I can find somewhere online to watch it, (and I have my ways and means of doing so), I can't really comment on the footage shown. However I'll do my best to find a copy of it.
Monster Quest has had a lot of detractors over the years, but I've got a soft spot for the program. Probably due to my involvement on a couple of programs providing background research. I've always found their researchers very friendly and always willing to listen to suggestions.
Over on cryptomundo, there is a letter from Doug Hajicek, the Monster Quest producer
Dear MonsterQuest Fans,
Like many of you, I am a bit saddened by the official cancellation of MonsterQuest. However, we will continue to produce similar programming in the future as opportunities arise.
Cryptozoology will always be passion for me personally.
The official end of MonsterQuest did not happen because of any lack of topics or for lack of viewers. The Network has decided to go another direction to assure their future as a powerful force in television. We are extremely happy to have been part of the successful growth of the History Channel.
I am forever grateful to Loren Coleman and everyone at Cryptomundo. I also thank the hundreds of researchers, scientists and the courageous witnesses we had a chance to work with over the last four years.
It was an amazing run for the topic of Cryptozoology in prime time.
I am sincerely humbled by the opportunity to have created so much programming on this fascinating topic.

Hopefully it won't be too long before another film company (and I don't mean CFZ.TV) takes up the baton and produces more crypto-themed programs for us to enjoy.
