On an archeological dig in Asia, Dr. Roger Bentley find a cuneiform tablet referring to an ancient society, the shadow dynasty, that was destroyed. An earthquake soon after reveals an ancient artifact and the scientists discover the ruins of an ancient temple world on a remote mountain site. It leads them to an underground world, lost in time and where people have adapted to low light. The High Priest Elinu doesn't welcome the presence of the new arrivals and wants them eliminated.

I remember having high hopes for The Mole People when it aired earlier on Sven and ending up kind of disappointed. The world of Mole People and the Mole's themselves were really cool, but I was not impressed. But in the spirit of Creepmas. I will tune in anyway!

“Mole People” will surface on MeTV tonight at 10 pm eastern/pacific, 9 pm central time- remember, if you’re unsure when and where to find us, just go to www.metvnetwork.com- and check your schedule there- or click on “where to watch” and enter your zip code to find the channel in your area. Chicago viewers get one more visit to the “House of Frankenstein” on our sister station, WCIU, the U, this morning at 11 am.


Let me know if you tuned in tonight and how you felt about the Mole People.

  1. Oh - this is where the Dickies song "Mole Men" comes from - I never knew. I thought it was something they created.
