0 2 Deb  August 25, 2023
I hope they bring it back, I look forward to go on his adventures with him. Love this show.
0 2 Linda Cain  August 15, 2023
I love EVERYTHING about Expedition Unknown and Josh Gates. My husband and I have been enjoying this series for years. Our dream of going on adventures like these but can’t so watching him is a joy. It's not only the adventure but it’s educational and very entertaining. He is a pro at his job. Please don’t let us down.
0 5 Leemo9755@aol.com  July 22, 2023
☺ Please Josh bring on some more episodes I live to watch You every Wednesday Period one of the best shows I've ever seen you are clever and very talented
0 3 gwendolyn drake Leemo9755@aol.com  August 7, 2023
Is Josh going to release any more episodes after the Cambodia treasure-July 12th episode- seems weird..was this because of the actors and writers strike?
0 5 Kathy  April 18, 2023
If they are not going to renew it then Josh needs to find a different network because this is one of the best shows on TV.
0 2 Rita Kathy  April 29, 2023
Kathy exactly my Dad and I watch Josh all the time we never miss him
0 2 BETH Mom of 3  April 12, 2023
Josh takes these adventures that I dream of. I learn so many new things and love how they are brought to my home. His show has brought much magic to Mt autistic young adult who will actually watch it with me. I hope and beg you to renew his show to come back. Thanks for listening.
0 2 Herb Gadberry  April 12, 2023
The good show on and it’s popular when you delete it. What the hell is your problem?.
0 5 Patricia  March 14, 2023
Josh takes us to places that is very interesting. Not only science but interesting facts of the places and people that he interviews and a little humor really makes the show! Please continue with his show, I have watched him since he started. Love his show!!! ❤ ❤ ❤
0 13 Elizabeth Owens  February 1, 2023
I need to know if Josh Gates will be back in 2023. I'll save a little money by cancelling discovery if he's gone.
0 20 Smith  November 24, 2022
The reason we signed up for Discovery+ was to see Josh Gates and now there is nothing but the older shows. No new season! So what is going on? I believe we need to at least be updated on his shows. So are going to be able to watch his new shows or are u not going to carry them? If not who is????
0 8 Holly Sutton  May 24, 2022
[hands] Josh show has been one of the Best entertaining shows there has ever been. We have followed him since his beginning. And once again, we've waited for his return. Thank you Discovery for returning this show to us. I know we will be completely entertained...
0 4 CHRISTIE crown  August 27, 2021
America's Titanic - so pleased to see Josh getting his hands on the bounty, never heard him so happy. But then, I don't think too many folk have heard of the steamship 'PULASKI' and it's sudden demise off the coast of North Carolina. Good episode!
1 5 CHRISTIE crown  July 23, 2021
Great to see Josh back, but I'd still rather see him in Destination Truth. The first episode of this new season of EU about Dillinger's loot, was not the most riveting of shows. As usual, Josh was like a kid in a candy store over some empty and broken jars. Infact, has Josh ever been fortunate enough to be present at any of these digs, when something amazing has been found?
Destination Truth had a wider scope of topics (for shows), and a bigger crew that truly brought out the best in Josh.
0 14 dwarfstar55  August 30, 2019
I wish they would bring back destination truth. Most of the crew he works with now had things to do with that show. Yea it's great seeing the thing on expedition unknown, but a good cryptid/monster hunt here and there would be nice to see also.
0 4 CHRISTIE crown dwarfstar55  July 15, 2021
My sentiments exactly. Destination Truth was so much more enjoyable and a lot more interesting. Plus the odd cryptid/bigfoot would spice things up real nicely!
0 4 Jon CHRISTIE  May 20, 2022
Totally agree. Part of what made that show great was the banter that he had with Ryder and other regular crew members. His current camera man is from that show and there's a bit of that now in Expedition but not enough. Also, miss his take on paranormal cases.
0 4 Carol H Van Norman dwarfstar55  May 23, 2022
I believe that was why they developed Expedition X. For those of us who can get enough of his journeys into the paranormal. I will say, I am disappointed he does not take part of. Those expeditions though.
0 10 Tomi Smith  July 23, 2019
Love ? this show. I love the way Josh puts his spin and humor in his adventures. Keep up the good work Josh. Your stories are always interesting and fun to watch
0 7 verna devney  April 10, 2019
I was so excited to hear that Egypt Live was being televised. My lifelong passion has always been to go to Egypt. With Josh there I don't have to be. I love watching all of his shows over and over. I was so entranced watching the live broadcast. If I had been able to put my hands through the TV and touch things, that would of made my life filled. I learn so much about people, lifestyles, countries and history. It's like going on vacation, but it's free. Keep up the good work. By the way, congrat's on your marriage and child.
0 6 k c durnett  April 10, 2019
Live Egypt show was great! Of course, anything with Josh Gates is enjoyable. Why, though, do you list reruns as "new"? Annoying.
0 2 dwarfstar55 k c durnett  August 30, 2019
Shows from discovery are listed as new when shown on one of there other networks like travel, science, etc. Also new is used when they make a compilation show out of two older shows. I guess this is used to get people to tune in to up the views.
0 8 Scully  December 11, 2018
It's relief to watch something that is more than the mindless, predictable, police dramas, and reality shows that permeate television these days. I've watched and re-watched episodes many times.
1 11 Brooke  November 4, 2018
I can't tell you how much I enjoy Expedition Unknown. It keeps me in touch with the parts of the world that I know I'll never see, and Josh is just like a kid brother with his comments, humor and spirit. PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE BRING IT BACK FOR SEASON 6. The show is such high quality and relevant, and I learn so much.
0 6 Carol Draime  September 27, 2018
Love the show and don't mind watching reruns. ☺ Looking forward to new season. Only thing I watch on Discovery or Travel.
0 2 Chet Cohron!  September 27, 2018
I enjoy the show, but reruns and reruns on old shows with info added is not good. I hope Season 6 is more exciting with new material.
0 3 Mary & Joe  June 22, 2018
We are avid watchers of anything Josh Gates puts his heart into! But... I don't see these new episodes on Travel Channel!?! What is the problem? We DVR Expedition Unknown weekly to find it's some "humorous " mishmash of previous seasons. Where is The Snake King, Nazis in Argentina, JEAN Lfittes Treasure?? TRAVEL CHANNEL WHY SAY IT WILL BE ON WHEN IT ISN'T??? We loved the Egyptian Queens, wouldn't mind seeing those in rerun instead of the comedy skits.
0 2 Sjgbrown Mary & Joe  July 6, 2018
They episodes are on the Discovery Channel. If you have an Amazon Firestick, you can download the Discovery Go app and watch them.

0 6 Linda Spangler  June 14, 2018
I love EVERYTHING sbout Expedition Unknown and Josh Gates. I'm an old woman now and dream of going on adventures like his with him. It's not the search for treasure, it's the adventure. At 73, vicarious thrills are all I have, and the best ones are with Josh Gates.
0 6 Carol Drame  December 28, 2017
I love the show. Even the re-runs. I'm 72 and ill. This is my travel adventure to all the places I will never see. Josh reminds me of my grandson. Love it.
