how many times must they repeat the theme of the documentary?
This documentary is straight out of the Mitchell and Webb "looking for a gift for my aunt" sketch (look it up). Seriously, half the running time is devoted to the narrator reiterating the one question initially posed. I'm not sure whether this is due to the History channel having commercial breaks every 5 minutes, or thinking that their viewers have the attention span of a goldfish, or both, but really, there is not much to talk about, content-wise. "But what is the meaning of the Turin papyrus?", spoken ad nauseum constitutes an obscene amount of time, while the rest of the documentary is devoted to far out speculation (such as that a bow shooting scene is a coded reference to male ejaculation, natch). Not worth your time. It is mockumentary for the MTV generation, not a serious treatment of this interesting subject.
