Does anyone actually watch this show?

I've heard it mentioned and I've seen the Giorgio 'I don't know, therefore, aliens' meme, but I don't know anyone that actually watches the program.

I watched it before it was moved to History International (which is a channel I don't have). Some of it was interesting stuff, not too heady but not total fluff either, just the kind of mind numbing distraction I might be looking for at 9PM on a weeknight or earlier morning on the weekends while I cooks eggs and drink coffee. Better than UFO Hunters IMO.

Yep. Watch it all the time. I think it's an awesome show.

I'll watch it once in a while. Some of the stuff can be sort of interesting but I watch it mostly for Giorgio. For some reason that dude makes me smile.

Just saw the newest episode. Love this show.

First time I've seen footage of Nabta Playa.

I saw the first four seasons. there's so much, what if, it's possible, let's go half way around the world to find evidence of some unrelated thing on this side of the world, and so on, that it's awfully flimsy.

When they started blaming EVERYTHING from bigfoots to Satanic cults to Suicide Forest in Japan on ancient aliens, without the slightest bit of irony, it all just go out of hand and became thoroughly ridiculous.

Somebody finally put out a movie called "Ancient Aliens Debunked" that exposes the ignorance, fraud and outright lies that make up the ancient alien hypothesis that I just can't watch it at all anymore, not even for entertainment.

Say all you want about them overreaching on hypothesis, but this show has been one of the few to show good, detailed footage of some of the most places often talked about. Sow me what nabta playa looks like, just don't tell me there are some crazy things there. Show me the nazca lines, don't just tell me they are there. That's why I app irate this show.

Same thing with America unearthed. Where else re you going to see hd video of Roanoke or the hooked x or any of the other mysterious objects out there.

Well it's not just overreaching the hypothesis. the hypothesis itself is based on so much misinformation and outright lies that it's meaningless. I highly recommend seeing "Ancient Aliens Debunked" which is free on youtube, and the filmmaker explicitly made it to be shared freely.

America Unearthed is a different story. That guy is diligent, even rigorous, and isn't afraid to come up short if that's where the evidence leads. I've only seen a half dozen episodes cuz i live overseas, but I did see him let other authorities on his subject say they disagreed with him and why. He's got a passion for his work without the religious fervor for his theses.

The earlier seasons were better. But they've already covered all the authentic evidence. Now they are just reaching.
