You can watch it without getting bored even if you are not a "believer"...
27 April 2011 | by chester1908See all my reviews

Before letting you know my thoughts about the show,it would be very useful to inform you about my beliefs. In my opinion,when a person judges a documentary which presents non-mainstream information/ideas, the reader must be sure that there is no extremist or conservative point of view.

Personally i find it not only hard,but also foolish to accept everything mainstream archaeologists propose. But on the other hand i am not really a big alien fan,and i do not have a theory of mine which i am radical about.I simply like being skeptic and more importantly always trying to find reason in everything.That being said,let's move on to the actual review.

The biggest plus of the show is it's most obvious element: you know it is going to try to convince you about the existence of aliens and their appearing in human history and you definitely have the curiosity about how they are going to achieve it! Furthermore,you get what you would expect to get from a show messing around with that subject: lots and lots of footage from ancient monuments,artifacts,drawings,carvings,legends and scripts. That alone is justifying the summary of my review. Huge variety of information about many civilizations from all over the world are presented in good detail;not about every aspect of the culture thought, just information related to the topic of the show (personally i don't think it is bad to stick to the topic). The pieces of the "puzzle" created are so many, and at the same time the -original- footage is so eye-grasping that it gets you thinking.

On the other side however on SOME occasions, the philosophy and attitude of the "experts" presenting the show,follow the general rule of flawed approach to the truth:instead of trying to prove their claims the best logical way they can in order to MAKE YOU think for yourself (possibly) that "yea,they could be right,from what i see it is very possible that...", they prefer to prove them by disproving (and using irony in small doses) the other side,which on our occasion is mainstream archaeology. This,along with the fact that (again,on some occasions) they seem to jump on the desired conclusion a bit too easy, is why it gets 8/10.

As i pointed out,it is a decent show to watch no matter your beliefs, even if you don't care about aliens at all. The huge variety of original footage gives "Ancient Aliens" a quality only reduced by the occasional "extremism" of its main speakers. Bottom line:give it a try. It may convince you, or it may not, but you will learn something new for sure.
