44. Sightings

Air Dates: April 17, 1992 - 1997
Network: FOX, Syndication, Sci-Fi Channel
Best Episode: None in particular

Not all that much different than Unsolved Mysteries, FOX's Sightings followed a similar structure—testimonials and reenactments of real-life abnormal events—but didn't pose as many questions. The five-year series was comparable to 20/20, presenting journalistic reports of weird goings-on, and with that tons of low-budget, faux alien encounters that impacted with the off-kilter zest of an oddball student film. By episode's end, the real world always felt a bit less normal, and the comfort of everyday life seemed much more oblique.
