Some residents of what’s been called “America’s Bermuda Triangle’’ have poked fun at the mention of paranormal activity or monster sightings in their South Shore communities.

Others have gone on record and sworn by what they’ve witnessed or encountered, be it strange lights in the sky, hairy creatures in the swamp, or a spirit in disheveled clothes lingering on the side of the road and waiting to hitch a ride.

While people’s opinions vary about the unexplained phenomena, on this they seem to agree: News that a major network could be making a series based on the legends of “The Bridgewater Triangle’’ — an approximately 200-square-mile region of Southeastern Massachusetts that has long been linked to the supernatural and macabre — is exciting, to say the least.
