I have but a brief question.  How many of you watch the Ancient Aliens series on History Channel?  If so, what have you gleaned from it that has made you a believer?  Or non believer?

Use there search function and you'll find loads about AA on the forums.

You will also find that, except to a select vocal few, the show is complete and utter BS.

Semi-entertaining BS, i mean, if you have absolutely nothing better to do or need background noise it works.

True. I like to sleep with the tv on sometimes. AA always knocks me out.

It's the best way to just shut your brain off and pass out. :tu:

I love Ancient Aliens. The "theories" (aka sci fi movie plots) are interesting. You just need to take the show as a piece of entertainment, not education. As far as information goes, AA is total bunk, and most things they present as fact are not even close to true, but it's fun to watch, nonetheless. Think of it as professional wrestling. You might have started watching it believing whole heartedly that it's true, but as you get older, it becomes painfully obvious that what you are watching is fake. Shouldn't matter, though. Most entertainment is fake anyway.

The opposite for me. That show makes my blood boil lol. I would be up all night if that came on while I was falling asleep.

I have watched it and it always amazes me at the out and out lies told on the show in a way that fools people.  I am not sure what bugs me the most.. that the people on the show lies sooooo much or that people watch them and take their word rather then doing simple research online!


Such a fictitious show being on the History Channel is also very confusing to me.

I agree. I used to love watching the history channel but it seems this is all they ever show any more, and I can't watch more than a few minutes of it without getting fed up
