A Good Documentation of various mysteries but badly damaged by a lack of basic objectivity and some resource persons with no credibility.
3 February 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Good Points: - comprehensive presentation of various historical places, stories, situations, and artifacts that have mysteries and unexplained factors - a clear presentation of what makes these varied mysteries baffling in light of the history of technology - a comprehensive presentation of the connection between unrelated ancient cultures and structures and revealing unexplained similarities - excellent quality videos of all these sites around the world - a lot of the items they present can really make one ponder that there maybe validity to the possibility of ancient aliens

Poor Points: - the presentation of theories with regards to the mysteries are one sided (for example: they might point to a certain structure and claim that it is not possible to do it with modern technology but will base it purely on the claim of an obviously biased ancient alien theorist. there is no presentation of a credible scientist to at least verify if modern technology cannot do it, etc) - there is no scientific approach in the presentation (they pose a historical mystery and just claim it couldn't be possible and immediately speculate it must have been ancient aliens and not allow the possibility of anything else

Major Fail: - the persistent presence of a resource person who is void of any realistic logic, science, or basic common sense. They keep on letting Giorgio A. Tsoukalos turn the whole documentary into a sensationalized fantasy. All the other resource persons, though obviously biased in favor of ancient aliens share the same basic approach: they would present the historical anomaly, explain why it is a mystery, and present a theory "could it be it was due to ancient aliens?" and it comes across as something plausible. At least all of them present a theory, and makes one think that it might be possible. Mr. Giorgio Tsoukalos claims all of his theories as fact. He doesn't claim "could it be" but he always states with authority that it is a matter of fact. What's even worse is that he does not only state it as a matter of fact, he even goes as far as saying the intention and the reasons why the ancient aliens did that. And,I wonder if he actually listens to himself - he will point to all historic literature and mythologies dealing with angels and state that angels don't exist so they could only have been extra terrestials - oh wow,what logic. He can accept one mystery but not another and no reasoning given. He says so, so it must be fact! This person destroyed the credibility of the show. I can't believe History Channel allowed this as it threw all credibility to the wind.

3rd Season: Sadly, the 3rd season showed a mark decline for the show. Though there are a few episodes that were still thought provoking and plausible, many of the others were pushing it too much. They have gone to the extent of explaining everything as being caused by ancient aliens. zombies were caused by ancient aliens, Jesus' raising lazarus from the dead has to do with ancient aliens, all plagues and epidemics were done by ancient aliens, George washington and the founding of the US also under the influence of ancient aliens... what next?

Sad sad sad, if they only stuck to some objectivity this would have been an awesome series, but they turned it into some fantasy tabloid.
