Im watching it right now, it's very good and if nothing else provides a very decent overview of archeological research.

I posted this in a different thread a few hours ago. I'm about half way through. It is very good. I've been watching off and on since earlier today. I've heard some people complain about the ending, though. Despite his skepticism regarding aliens visiting humans, the filmmaker apparently tries to prove biblical stories as being real during the climax.

I took that as an ironic commentary on the ridiculousness of the whole concept.

There are very, very valid points to be found in that documentary and some very damning evidence surrounding the key names responsible for the Ancient Aliens franchise..

Theories are for some people careers. Particularly ET salesmen and men of god. ...and they have done a roaring trade on the subject. Why? Because they are hard to disprove.

I just finished watching the full 3 hours and I've gotta say that it's really well done.

Giorgio Tsoukalos is a notorious charlatan but he sure does know how to make money off his and his friends' ludicrous theories. He actually makes me laugh more than most comedians

It aggravates me no end when he asks a highly complicated question and then just answers it with "Yes, because I said".

It's sad that there are people who need this sort of stuff debunked.
