Pseudo-science for Bored Conspiracy Buffs
29 July 2017 | by maxima-36494See all my reviews

The series started out OK but has since degenerated into Enquirer-level sensationalism. The show has likely run out of ideas and is now willing to present known and already-explained phenomena as unsolved mysteries.

An example: satellite photos and video show an enormous 3,000-mile wide shadow moving across the planet! What on earth could it be?!?

1. Is it secret gov't technology deployed into space to cool a too-warm earth? Evidently, according to our scientists, we don't have the capability to do it or keep it secret.

2. All right, how about a huge insect swarm? The largest swarm ever documented covered about 75 square miles. But this shadow is way bigger and moving at 2,000 miles per hour! Can insects fly that fast? Who knows. Let's check with our scientists!

3. OK, insects are out. So what if the shadow was caused a huge alien ship like the one in Independence Day? And the gov't is covering it up? Let's ask our scientists if its possible to hide an alien spacecraft the size of Australia.

4. Ok, alien ships are out, at least for now 'cuz we ain't entirely convinced. But what else could have caused this shadow?

We're outta ideas so how can we figure this out? Should we consult NASA since they provided the satellite data? They can't be much smarter than our own scientists, but fine, we'll ask 'em during the commercial break ... and, we're back and, OMG, NASA claims the shadow was caused by ... THE MOON? Are they sure? Could this be another cover-up? And NASA "claims" lunar eclipses are 100% predictable? Well, maybe we'll figure all this out someday but for now ... ITS A MYSTERY!

Coming up next: Crop circles!
