Storyline

In 1911, Hiram Bingham, famed American explorer, stumbled across a remote Inca city atop a high peak in the Andes. The site was called Machu Picchu--perhaps the most famous ruin in the world. Was it, like Bingham believed, a military fortress or did this glorious ruin have a secret purpose? From the mountains of Peru, host Josh Bernstein will follow in the footsteps of Hiram Bingham. He builds a log bridge across a raging river, examines the stonework at the site, and reviews ancient manuscripts to discover the "true" purpose of Machu Picchu. Written by THC

Indiana Jones treating us like a bunch of idiots
24 January 2010 | by (Latvia) – See all my reviews

GOD, how I hate this kind of storytelling - as if our host is the first one to discover all the things - but these "questions" and "found" "answers" had been answered a long time ago - so why does even this style of documentary exist? To feed upon brainless wallets? To entertain the fools? I'm no friggin interested in building a crappy bridge just to follow in someones footsteps (I want information about the site and object, not some useless side stories), but unfortunately our host does this in order just to do what "first" discoverer, but in the next scenes our expert on topic miraculously awaits us on place of interest and later we are taking a helicopter and exploring stuff. Just plain stupidity. Why couldn't he (jost) just pick up the damn book in the first place and tell the whole story instead of being a uselessly hiking douche-bag, with fake questions and answers, which have yet to be "discovered".

I hate this style!
