Again, we drift into yet another Quest adventure, this time in the Himalayas, and it also involves the Yeti.

This episode, is most noteworthy to me, for all the shooting and violence.
Not only do we get a tremendous amount of shooting, directly at the kids, but also at Bandit, their beloved dog.
This in itself is somewhat cool, as we even get to see the bullets ricocheting, and bouncing all around them.
As I have mentioned before, there is simply no way all this shooting would fly in todays world.
But something else stands out, the throwing of a person off a cliff. We see a supposed "Yeti" actually throw a person over a cliff, early on in the episode. GREAT~!

Although we don't get to see all the neat Quest "toys and gadgets", there is a cool bit where Quest and the clan are landing in their jet, and they switch the landing power from horizontal to vertical.

We learn that these supposed "Yeti" might be the worst shots of all time, with all the buckets of ammunition they waste and miss trying to shoot the boys and Bandit. :clap:

Also, we have a downright brutal ending, where supposedly "Yeti" exact some wild form of justice.
Now how cool can you get?
This may be the most controversial of all endings in the entire series.


Another good show, I'll give it a solid "7".

SPECIAL NOTE - If you go back and watch the documentary I linked, there is one scene that was redone. I believe it was the scene where Johnny is shooting at a disguised "Yeti", and he used some slurs, that apparently weren't appropriate, and I believe it had something to do with nationality. Odd that they tinkered with that, but left all the violence and shooting in. :wtf:
