Chasey Ray McKnight,
The top of the heap, as UFO investigation on TV goes, was "Sightings" (on Fox then SciFi) which, in its weekly newsmagazine format, did its level best to be journalistic, and to report on new cases (or at least those we might not have heard of). And Then...despite being a solid hit on both networks, it was GONE. Almost as though it was making Someone nervous. So what's come along since then to fill the void? The History Channel had the excellent "UFO Files," which did not avoid controversy...it pointed fingers and named names, and managed to be shocking at times. And Then...it was GONE. Then History's "UFO Hunters" in which our intrepid 'investigators' never managed to look into anything more recent than the '70s; History's ongoing "Ancient Aliens" which, while intriguing, leaves you wanting to throttle those silly-haired geeks over such blockheaded assertions as that there was NO indigenous science in ancient Egypt, ONLY alien science. Sheesh. And now there's THIS, which could be mistaken for an unsold 3 Stooges pilot. THIS intrepid troupe shows up at sites where someone saw something 10 or 20 years ago...they come back at night with their expensive night-vision gear, huffing and puffing, assuming that if someone saw something once upon a time, then they'll see it too (one of them is James Fox, a once-respected ufologist with a couple of solid docs on his resume, who obviously always wanted to be an action hero). What those entries from "UFO Hunters" forward have in common is that they're all new-age Cold Case Files, seeking out the over-reported and the unsolvable, and they are ALL wastes of time. There are Some who'd have you believe that this is because there haven't been any new sightings in years'n'years. BUSHWAH!! There's a terrific website which will convince you otherwise. In the meantime, I'd rather have NO UFO programming on the air than this fol-de-rol. Someone...PLEASE...Bring Back "Sightings"!!!!
