Joe Rogan Really Does Question Everything

Looking buff and baked, Joe Rogan has somehow teamed up with the Syfy channel for a show called Joe Rogan Questions Everything. When I first saw the ad for this one, I had a true WHOA! moment. The man who likes to watch babes eat worm guts and coagulated blood balls is now diving into the weird and paranormal?

Eh, why not?

Joe Rogan

Over the past year, Syfy has been throwing a ton of new, short run shows against the wall and waiting to see what sticks. I’m not sure if this one will adhere to the programming wall for a second season, like Ghost Mine, but it does have something going for it that other shows in this genre don’t – Joe Rogan will call bullshit, literally, to a person’s face when they postulate on the crazy theories that plague their fevered brains. Now that, my friends, is refreshing. Since he’s a martial arts guy, I guess he’s not worried if someone takes offense to his opinion. Might be kind of fun to watch him throw some MMA-style beat down to a man who swears the chupacabra is an ET pet.

He had me at Sasquatch, the focus of his first episode. I get the feeling that like me, he wants to believe. And like me, he needs a little more proof than a few plaster casts and grainy films. Rogan looked genuinely flipped out at times during his squatchin’ night in the woods. Naturally, they didn’t find Bigfoot, but the ride was worth it.

I also watched Joe tackle HAARP and the future of robotics where man and machine will meld as one, then separate into possible warring factions. Can someone say Battlestar Galactica?

Here’s a great reason to watch this show : Drinking Game! Joe gets very, very animated when he talks about the unusual. Every time his eyes pop out of his head, take a shot. You’ll be blitzed halfway into the show. And somehow, I think Joe would approve.

His skepticism and open mindedness is (I can’t believe I’m saying this) a breath of fresh air. For me, the show is a Vulcan mind meld of In Searh Of… and That’s Incredible. Anything that makes me feel like a kid again, even if it’s only for an hour, gets my vote.

Keep searching for the truth, Joe. And keep that BS meter running.

    This is a great show. You gotta see the one about weather control and Chem Trails. It’s great. I really hope this show gets picked up. No sound effects and tricks like many of the paranormal investigation shows out there. This is more like Penn & Teller BS, but with more bug eyes and weed.

    Joe Rogan questions NOTHING. He’s too busy being the snarky, self posturing host. And I like you Joe, but your nothing more than a paycheck walking. Instead of half formed, self centered, zippy, one liners, how about actually, well I don’t know, maybe actually INVESTIGATING something to the end? Like, instead of badgering people or glossing over witnesses, maybe you could see their cause to the end? Call me crazy, but I think your better than this drivel. Whatever. Not my paycheck…

    The only problem with this show is that Joe Rogan often acts as if “he” is the first credible person to actually “investigate” many of these phenomena. What a freakin joke. He’s a paid debunker. He is as credible as WMDs in Iraq. Sorry. Ill take the word of John Podesta, Linda Howe, various astronauts, thousands of pilots, cops, generals, and at least two US Presidents before ill will believe a guy whose claim to fame is getting kicked in the head and hosting a game show. He’s NOT intelligent as you claim. He’s NOT even serious. Unfortunately, there are a lot of crazy folks that investigate paranormal stuff, but as my first cousin who was station chief in 3 countries for the CIA told me when I questioned him about the reality of UFOs, “…the Universe is 1,000 times stranger than you can ever imagine”. Sorry Joe. Ill stick with my cuz.

      Though you do have to admit he’s as credible as some of the topics he’s showcased. If it’s on Syfy, I take it with a grain of salt and have fun. These are the Sharknado folks after all.

    Joe Rogan is a sellout and ingenuous. He questions nothing. He looked at Bigfoot much more objectively than Chen trails or anything else that actually matters. If you are a fan of Joe rogan you might like the show, but it us pure bull s
