The Nostradamus effect demonstrated
17 September 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The Nostradamus effect is undeniably real - it reveals itself in the propensity of TV producers and (alas) a few obscure academics to turn into blithering idiots whenever the name of Nostradamus or another "prophet" is mentioned. In the episode about Leonardo's "prophecies" the narrator states that the program will attempt neither to refute nor to confirm them: "we will merely present the evidence". The evidence then follows, consisting primarily of rank speculation. The word "perhaps" is the star of the show, with a strong supporting cast of "might" and "could it be that....?". "Many believe" one theory, and "some believe" another, without ever being named, let alone put on screen to confirm their beliefs.

What such preposterous drivel is doing on the History Channel is a mystery. Perhaps SciFi turned it down as too far-fetched.

One out of ten for some mildly interesting historical detail.
