Ancient Aliens Season Two DVD Review–Going Where No One Even Knew Anyone Had Went
One of the History Channel’s lesser-known gems probably has to be Ancient Aliens. When you get people together who actually think that aliens have visited the Earth, and couple them onto places and things that are downright unexplainable today, the end result is bizarre and sometimes hilarious. And that’s why I’m glad the folks out at the History Channel sent over a copy of Ancient Aliens Season Two for me to review for you.
Ancient Aliens Season Two will take you all over the world to see strange things that make precious little sense and then explain how those places may be related to or otherwise serve as the work of aliens. Each episode works together to attempt to establish proof that aliens of all sorts have been visiting Earth for millions of years, and indeed, meddling in history for just as long.
The weird part about Ancient Aliens is that it’s all impossible to verify. They’re going to explain a whole bunch of things, and absolutely none of this may be true. It’s hard to get your head around watching the History Channel put on a show that is only vaguely about history.
But at the same time, they will spend a lot of time going to a lot of different places, and that’s more than interesting enough for just about anybody. A lot of the strange descriptions have even stranger overlapping moments. Sure, some could call it a bunch of coincidences, or someone could find deeper meaning in there, depending on how you choose to interpret the things that are going on around you.
Whether or not you believe a word of this stuff–and frankly, I don’t–it’s still interesting to hear about, to hear them draw the connections between events and places and things to get these strange theories all in one place.
Ancient Aliens is weird, bizarre stuff, and if there’s nothing you enjoy quite so much as baffling theories linked together by thin webs of coincidence, then you and Ancient Aliens will get along nicely. I have to hand it to them for the sheer audacity of what they’ve done here; all the greats, from Stonehenge to crop circles and beyond are here, and lots of places I’ve never even heard of are involved.
The Screenhead Ten Scale gives Ancient Aliens Season Two an eight out of ten for doing strange things with places we’d only thought we’d known and loved. This is actually pretty good, if very weird, stuff, so if you want to have your mind blown, this is a great place to start.
