I really thought we weren't going to have any new shows this month being December and all, but some snuck up on us! We have 2 new series coming to us this month, both are non-fiction paranormal shows: The Unexplained Files on Discovery Science and Killer Contact on Space. And they both start this week. Gotta get our scare (and science!) on before the holiday specials overtake our viewing choices.
Let's take a closer look at both of the shows.
The Unexplained Files ~ Series Premiere
Monday December 2, 2013 at 8pm ET/5pm PT on Discovery Science

I originally thought this show was on Discovery, but it's actually on Discovery Science. So many channels out there! I'm really hoping this one is also available to watch online at the Discovery.ca website. Here's hoping!

Killer Contact ~ Series Premiere
Wednesday December 4, 2013 * at 10PM ET on Space
Genre: Non-Fiction Paranormal
We've been tracking this show for quite a while now, including chatting about it almost one year ago to this day when it used to be called Notorious Hauntings. I'm excited to see that it's now making it's debut both here in Canada on Space as well as on it's home station of SyFy.
Series description: "In Killer Contact, viewers will follow a team of paranormal investigators as they research the otherworldly activity at historical sites and explore the gruesome back story of the infamous and heinous individuals who operated out of each location. The team will stop at nothing as they dig deep into the crimes and victims to determine if they are the cause of the present-day haunting.
Investigations this season focus on historical figures including Jack the Ripper (London), Dracula-inspiration Vlad the Impaler (Romania) and the bloodthirsty Borgias (Italy)"
Killer Contact is an American show features paranormal investigators Austin Cook, Hector Barragan, Adam Leidenfrost, Molly O'Connolly, and Greg Niecestro. Season 1 of Killer Contact is scheduled for 6 episodes.
* SCHEDULING NOTE: I encourage you to check your local listings carefully regarding dates and times for this one. It looks like Killer Contact may following a non-traditional schedule. It looks like it debuts once a week on Wednesdays, and then airs Tuesdays and Wednesdays nights.
See more about Killer Contact at the shows website and on Facebook.
I'm sure we will also have lots of marathons and specials to enjoy this month, including the Doctor Who Christmas Special. I'll update with more details as they become available.
