Mystery Quest investigates the Jack the Ripper murders.

One of the world's most notorious serial killers stalked the streets of London for three months killing at least five women before disappearing....

Mystery Quest examines the theory of whether Hitler escaped from Berlin at the end of World War II.

Officially the Soviets claim that after Hitler committed suicide his body was burn and buried. Mystery Quest looks into the lost city of Atlantis.

Researchers examines the theory that Atlantis was really a metaphor for the Minoan civilization of Crete. Monster Quest was a fun show, even if it didn't produce the greatest documentaries.

The 2009 spin-off Mystery Quest opted to use the same format and same narrator (Stan Bernard) to examine questions beyond cryptozoology.

They covered topics, including Stonehenge and Nazis, that one would actually expect to find on the History Channel.

However, the sensational Monster Quest format wasn't the greatest to begin with, and the results of Mystery Quest are mixed.

The show did two good episodes about the possible escape of Nazi war criminals after World War II, the first being about Hitler himself.

They prove a skull possessed by the Russian government was not Hitler's, which is interesting, although the claim that it was Hitler's wasn't convincing to begin with.

They also produce two interesting episodes about Jack the Ripper and the Zodiac Killer, but instead of doing a broad overview and considering many possible options, focus on only a couple possible suspects, Francis Tumblety and Richard Gaikowski. They have one person who heard the Zodiac talk listen to a recording of Gaikowski's voice; she identifies him as a match, but how valuable is this?

She hadn't heard the Zodiac speak in decades, and at any rate she didn't seem to recognize the bulk of Gaikowski's voice, she just thought his "don't worry" sounded like the Zodiac's "good bye." Nevertheless, there's no doubt about it- Gaikowski is a much better suspect than Arthur Leigh Allen.
