Monsters Inside Me is a television documentary series about parasites that live on or, in many cases, inside the human body. Each episode has dramatizations that show illnesses caused by parasitic infection. Once the parasites have been identified, their life cycles are illustrated. Justin Peed is the narrator, and biologist Dan Riskin, PhD, explains how and why each parasite finds its host. A season 2 has been announced and Animal Planet is currently taking parasite story submissions on the show's website. The second season premiered on Wednesday June 9, 2010. As of January 7, 2011, Monsters Inside Me can be seen in Canada on DiscoveryScience. The show returned for a third season on October 5, 2012. Two seasons have been aired consisting of 6 episodes the first one and 10 the second. Third season premiered on October 05, 2012. Mike Hale of The New York Times said that 'theres science amid the frightening stories and said that the series really grossed him out.'
