Destination Truth Season 5 Review

Rating: 4 out of 5.

I only give 4 stars because it was such a short season, I felt gipped. 7 episodes to the end of this Josh Gates show,. However, Josh Gates new show is called Expedition Unknown which ended in 2020 due to Covid. I always appreciated Josh Gates sense of adventure and his knowledge on cryptology. If you ever interested in history, archeology and cryptology, well following Josh Gates makes it all the better.
