Is William Shatner Weird or What?

The answer, of course, is “yes.”

Hosted by William Shatner, each episode of Weird or What? contains three separate stories of the bizarre and unexplained. As the show unfolds, it weighs various supernatural and scientific theories that attempt to explain the story, and sometimes features tests conducted as proof of a theory’s plausibility. The show features strange occurrences such as aliens, ghosts, monsters and natural disasters, and could lead you to question your understanding of what is real, what isn’t, and what’s just plain weird.

I’m disappointed that he’s only the host here, but considering that he’s as old as the Crypt Keeper and as dramatic as Rod Serling, the Shat is probably as genetically perfect for the job as they come.

Weird or What? airs tomorrow at 9 p.m. on Syfy. See, they can make something we want to see. Or at least that I want to see.

UPDATE (thanks kegs!): This show has quite the channel-jumping history, having first been on the History Channel, Discovery and NatGeo. It’s like the Defense Against the Dark Arts of shows.
