Bigfoot of Ashe County: AIMS Erupts…


Well, it was Round Two with the infamous Cherokee Devil on the S3/Ep08 installment of Mountain Monsters. The AIMS team met with “Aaron,” a supposed Bigfoot expert who maintained that there had been 12 sightings of the Cherokee Devil in the past 3-1/2 years, following which encounters seven of the people involved had simply disappeared! For the Devil to manifest himself, the witness has to be alone.

As team members Buck (pictured) and Huck had experienced previous encounters detailed in the last episode, they decided to venture out at night themselves without the knowledge or approval of the rest of the team. Heading to the shack in the woods where Buck had earlier supposedly been stashed by the creature, they found backwards writing on the walls, and heard scratching sounds. Team leader Trapper was not pleased to hear of their exploits the next day, and the assembled group returned to the shack, almost failing to find it as it had been camouflaged, presumably by the Devil. A spooky dude appeared outside of the shack who made the team members appear eloquent by comparison, and it was ventured that he was one of the seven who had seen the creature and completely disappeared. He did exactly that while the team was checking out reversed writing on the rear of the shed, so there wasn’t much character development there.

Well, the master plan was to use Buck as bait, placing him in a protective cage on the bridge trap that had been constructed but unused during the previous episode. Buck however took it upon himself to sneak out undetected late at night to go one-on-one with the Devil, who he felt would not appear if the trap was set, being that the Devil could read minds and all. The episode was reminiscent of The Blair Witch Project as Buck went first to the shack and then to the bridge trap by his lonesome, all the while thoughtfully video-journaling his thoughts for our convenience…

As the youngest member of the AIMS team sat alone on the bridge trap, the Cherokee Devil apparently manifested itself to him, although we in the viewing audience saw nothing; this is a low-budget show, after all. Buck was apparently able to drive the beastie off by uttering the Cherokee word for “leave,” a trick apparently communicated to him by the little Cherokee girl whose ghostly presence had been perceived in association with the Devil. – – Wasn’t that convenient?!

    Re: character development.

    How can they develop what they ain’t got?

      Btw: do you remember a one-season wonder from the 1993 Fox Network line-up called “The Adventures of Brisco County, Junior?”

      It starred Bruce Campbell (of EVIL DEAD fame) and it co-starred “Comet the Wonder Horse as Himself.” Well, apparently, the two of them could converse quite intelligently! Though, not like Wilbur and Mr. Ed, as Comet’s end of the conversation still sounded like a lot of neigh-saying to human ears. So, I am forced to assume that the two of them used what I like to call (get ready for it!)…

      …Horse Code.

    OK! That settles it. He must be off on a Love Boat cruise with some old cougar.

      I is not! I do have my standards; they just happen to be modest to low ones. No old cougar for me, no sir; I’d insist on at least a middle aged one, with an option to upgrade to a nice house cat…
