      Make sure to leave your questions for our Post Mortem episode down below!

      1. Gracie

        If the keeper didn't report anything weird during those two weeks, I wonder if the principal keeper paid him to not say anything and then murdered the other two. Since he had asked just before arriving at the lighthouse with the others whether they could do an experiment to see how long it would take someone to get there between the thing being reported and them actually investigating. Since it was denied, maybe he opted to just bribe the keeper to keep silent. Since he wanted to know how long it would take for someone to come investigating, maybe he was planning out how long he'd have from the time he'd stop turning on the light (leaving the island) until someone would start looking for him. The journal said he was quiet, so what if he was just nervous about his plans. He could have drugged the other two which made them hallucinate and see the storm. Perhaps he was conducting some sort of experiment, and then killed them and left somehow, maybe by having some sort of accomplice pick him up or something.

      2. Plant

        What would you do on a deserted island? What extra person would you bring?

      3. valsol

        shane which part of little women (the movie) did u start crying at this is important

      4. Grace Linnea

        Which rap song would you rather use against the water sprites, Ice Ice Baby by Vanilla Ice or Fancy by Iggy Azalea?

      5. Yazmine Yacub

        whenever i need to do scottish accents i just always say it how i think shrek would say it and i think you guys should try it too!!

    2. Bailey Fears

      Are we just going to gloss over at the beginning Ryan said that there is a dark spirit on the Islands who keep Shepherds off the islands with their sheep?

    3. YOWYoona

      Missed these two so much

    4. Shashank Shetty

      I thought this would be based on the movie lighthouse

    5. Doris2000

      BFU is back with the boys! I'm happy.

    6. ForeverLove230

      Bad luck to kill a seabird...

    7. Daniel Berry

      The dark knight reference>>>>>>

    8. Green Giant

      Oh yeah another night of no sleep

    9. Carlos D Gonzalez

      The one theory no one has tried, its nessy the loch ness monster.

    10. Atlis D

      Kind of just connecting the dots that this story might have inspired the willem dafoe and robert pattinson movie.

    11. Michael Nella

      curious to know if they ever found any trace of the flag. You'd wonder if it was torn down by the storm or if it was just lowered.

    12. Caz Smith

      Americans!! Say “buoyant”, now say “buoy”. Exactly!! Stop pronouncing it Boo-ey 😫😫😫

    13. kmtx

      Well obviously it was aliens, the Rutans of course. Doctor Who was there and so was Leela.

    14. Grace Candaza

      How about Xavier DuPont de Ligonnès ? The aristocrat who slaughtered his' entire family? That remains a mystery up till now.

    15. Katarina Dayinta

      So I guess this is inspire the lighthouse movie?

    16. Stevie Denae

      19:20 I too shipped Willem Dafoe, Robert Pattinson, and off-camera friend 😂

    17. Isabel A

      i think it was a suicide pact. or maybe they were eaten by the sheep

    18. Robin

      Move over Streddie I have a new OT3 now

    19. FD GOD

      Why is this all so familiar?

    20. Adam Reeves

      I’m only a minute in and I’m already completely convinced Shane and Ryan are high off their asses-

    21. Christopher Hays

      Theory 1 is pretty much the most plausible. One fell into the sea, the others attempted to rescue him and then fell in themselves, possibly during a sweltering of waves from the intense winds of the North Sea. Why were the bodies never found? It's the ocean, they sank and were eaten by crabs and hagfish, most bodies in the sea remain there.

    22. Learning and Growing

      I'm so happy they brought the local lore into it!

    23. ShaneMP01

      People: *go missing* Ryan: *alien breathing noises*

    24. Jared Quinn

      They were washed off by a rogue wave. Case closed.

    25. Kiefer The Gamer

      0:03 You stole my Crappy Pun

    26. GreenbloodLady

      This just in: Shane and Ryan think lighthouse keepers run off the same rules as moths. XD

    27. ProjectFlashlight612

      The answer to the mystery is very simple. One of the men killed and ate the others, then ate himself.

    28. Jordan Ramsey

      Couldn't pirates have just landed on the island and kidnapped them? That's the only realistic theory besides the violent lighthouse keeper killing them and then committing suicide. Also, they could have all been at the tackle box and got hit by a wave simultaneously.

      1. Logically Dictate

        I thought the same

    29. Maggie Sullivan

      The resignation in Shane’s voice when Ryan pulled out the Alien Juice was just truly inspiring

    30. hound3000 need some hugs

      Shane is beaten by Ryan in a rap battle? Who would have thought?

    31. Scott Perkins

      I live in the south and I'm offended by those... "accents"

      1. K M

        They were joking don’t take everything so serious 🤦🏻‍♀️

    32. Bevan F.

      Ryan really missed the opportunity to say “shed some light” instead of “shed some insight”

    33. Cora Espinoza

      Rouge waves are a real scary thing though.

    34. kiwitoothpick

      I’m so glad they are continuing this series. I always binge watch when I’m on vacation 🤩🤩🤩


      maybe the men conspired to leave together is some kind of plan...those men need to be investigated deeply as I think they all did this together with a well planned out scheme. And as far as the sheep go--could be some type of marine life that washes up on the grass that contains a hormone booster and when the sheep eat this they give birth to twins.

    36. Dee Ca.

      Why is his voice so nasally?

    37. Faylyn Hillier

      Shane loves lighthouses, I paint lighthouses, gives me an idea.

    38. Geckopanda Covers

      I missed you 2!

    39. Kirsty Anne Allan

      I'm.scottish, those accents were hilarious 😂😂😂😂😂

    40. Caporal Poireau

      Lighthouse keepers are moths confirmed

    41. The Epic Memes And Games

      im glad you guys are finally back

    42. AIDEN LEE

      Maybe the gamekeeper killed them and hid the evidence

    43. Juliette Wahl

      So essentially what went down in that movie with rob and dafoe

    44. H.W. Reid

      You should come here to Scotland for Unsolved: Supernatural! Bloody everything is haunted here

    45. Marshall Mathers

      stolen from bedtime stories and done much worse

    46. Lauren Larson

      Know what it’s kind of like they go through every Accent except Scottish

    47. firewolfgames

      roku like from ATLA?

    48. Souls Borne


    49. Smashmathboy


    50. Sasha Antonia

      Really miss the good old unsolved. It just doesn’t have the same feel anymore. Didn’t even watch this episode

    51. jiji

      18:11 I thought that was shirtless shane beating up the camera

    52. Sheikha Al Busaidi

      Missed you guys

    53. jxsyxng

      Shane is so giddy

    54. Joanne Denney

      Reminds me of the lighthouse film that William Dafoe and Robert Pattison starred in directed by Robert Eggers. Very eerie.

    55. Ojaswita

      Booey !?

    56. Lazy Studio

      Maybe they were consumed by the light

    57. E H

      The accents 😂 you wouldn’t hear that on Sauchiehall Street

    58. YG & SM STAN.

      idk if it's just me but i've had a fear of lighthouses since i was in elementary school 😭😭

    59. Aiana Raven

      "Nice light!" - the Lighthouse keepers had essentially become moths.

    60. meredith m

      nah it was just three lighthouse keepers having a mega polyamorous relationship with those mermen dudes. then they all live underwater happily ever after

    61. Kaitlin Hutchison

      my grandfather was the last lighthouse keeper in Scotland before they went automated! really enjoyed this episode :)

    62. Clarissa Hargis

      A rogue wave seems like the only plausible explanation.

    63. lucus lopez

      video reported for racism against Scottish

      1. lolbit plush productions


      2. YG & SM STAN.


    64. Sydney Mitrecic

      Magic grass😂😂 Its such a funny phrase

    65. Sydney Mitrecic

      YAY!!!!! We're back baby!!!!! I love unsolved! Have a great day anyone

    66. nm

      why didn't they ask the gamekeeper if he saw a storm at least, because that would clarify at least part of the confusion

    67. Julian Gutierrez

      Shane is gay

    68. Gay Slinky

      Ricky goldsworth?!

    69. Gay Slinky

      Why is no one mentioning the fact that this man was payed 8 pounds a year to watch this lighthouse???

    70. The Knightingale

      It’s official: light house keepers are moths

    71. Omeesa Khanduri

      Ahhhhh...they’re back...yess...pure joy 😆

    72. lacrosseguy108

    73. Mark F.

      absolutely disgusting that they make fun of scottish people! im part scottish (although many many many mannnnny generations ago) my family has lived in the US for like 100+ yrs now...but it's still very offensive to me..with the move towards ending racism you'd think these 2 clowns would actually care about people of different races. Make fun of my race = no more sure many others will follow too!!

      1. lolbit plush productions

        * sigh *

      2. YG & SM STAN.

    76. dennislp3

      You guys are so corny you could make a whole bag of popcorn

      1. lolbit plush productions

        Oh god...

    77. Harro Bye

      Probably sea pirates back in the day found the island n made the kidnapped lighthouse keepers slaves.

    78. dennislp3

      "Is that where this is fuckin going?"

    79. Ashley Leasure

      The accents 🤣

    80. Chaotic Maximus

      Correct me if I'm wrong but (1:57) isn't "Eilean Mór" Scottish Gaelic for "Big Island"

    81. Mya Lang

      shane i think we ALL cried at little women

    82. Olivia Skye

      I'm Scottish, and while I wasn't offended by the accents, please never do them again

    83. Braelyn Creamer

      Could y’all please do the Williamsburg colonial parkway murders? No ever seems to talk about it even though there was literally a serial killer running loose .

    84. Scufflegrit

      “The nearby BUTT of Lewis”

    85. Nima Hassan

      What do get when you have 4 men in a lighthouse? Shane: A polyamorous gay relationship with a future in Jamaica

    86. Imagez

      I can't believe Shane is still alive after everything he's said

    87. Caitlin Pallett

      the way the americans say buoy makes me laugh so much it sounds way cooler haha (uk pronounce it like boy, not booey)

    88. Carlos Solis

      Every episode has some kind of humourous jokes, which helps my mind from dreaming this again and again

    89. Gay Calculator

      Its either a poly gay love story or the fey got em

    90. GlowDust7501

      The music makes this so ominous ugh

    91. Fuwa Fu

      The magic grass made the sheep magical.

    92. Jimeth Ota

    93. Rivero Kenshiro

    100. zijuiy wttuy

      Gamekeeper was possibly an Imposter. He wasn't doing his tasks.
