Good except at times when it comes out like a sensationalized tabloid.
24 July 2011 | by (Philippines) – See all my reviews

I will first profess my bias. I do believe in the general idea that we have been visited by aliens and still do based on some of the data presented in the TV series. Prior to watching this series, I have read a bit and watched documentaries on the topic and have no trouble considering this as a real possibility. Thus, this series had indeed caught my attention.

What I did appreciate was the comprehensive gathering of data and information on ancient literature, religion, culture, and archeology which reveals possible alien encounters or involvement. The show was able to present these data and point out the lack of modern science to adequately explain how these were accomplished in ancient times. It presented a good case with various resource persons to state their opinion on the matter.

Now what I didn't appreciate was the biased presentation of resource persons. They only presented resource persons who believed in the ancient alien theories and no rebutting opinions from scientists or members of the academe. In other words, the resource persons were one sided. Now that would have still been okay if they had good resource persons with good, sound credible theories. Unfortunately, they had some resource persons who were so blindly biased that they would make sweeping statements and pronounce theories so far off that their logic closely falls of the edge. I was watching the video with college students who were very interested but would on their own rebut some of the ludicrous claims of some resource persons.

Giorgio A. Tsoukalos, who seems to be the main resource person, keeps making sweeping claims that are just too far off the evidence. It is one thing to see how somethings could not be explained and then speculate from evidence that we may have had help from aliens... but to make sweeping statements that there was a targeted manipulation of our genes by the aliens is ludicrous. It is one thing to speculate that we were visited by aliens but to make statements about their intentions or what precisely they did is not just going out on a limb, but its jumping off a cliff of rational thinking. As one of the students commented, the show would be nice but Mr. Tsoukalos turned it into a sensationalized tabloid.

Also, there were a lot of statements some of the resource persons make claiming that modern science or archaeologists say this or that, yet when we research we find out that their statements are wrong. The sad thing is the show did not address that. They just took the words of their resource persons and their selective and fabricated data they spouted to fit their story.

Bottom line. Excellent presentation of artifacts and evidence. Biased presentation of theories. Some good resource persons while some just have too much of a fantastical imagination that they are nearly disconnected from logic and common sense.

Considering it was history channel, I wish they did more research and had a bit more objectivity.

I still believe in ancient aliens visiting and helping us out but not a lot of the crap some of the resource persons are fantasizing about.
