Throughout history, there have been tales of strange creatures hiding in Earth's waters. While many discount stories of sea monsters as purely mythological, it is estimated that Earth's oceans are home to between 700,000 to one million species--and shockingly, two-thirds of those species still remain unknown.

One of the series that marks the History Channel's shift from documentaries/education to comedy/entertainment . This series is packed to the bursting point with the full spectrum of misdirection, deception, half-truths and out-right bunk. Sprinkled in a generous helping of rhetorical questions posing as "maybes" and introspection, Ancient Aliens is a systematic dismantling of rational thought, scientific process and anything resembling academic rigor.

I love the show. their speculations and opinions are rather fascinating, and the archaelogical value is just simply amzing. but one question what happened to season 9 & 10?

avatar

So for those people wondering what is up with episode numbering in season 5 - 10, know that the info comes from tvdb. There the principle is that numbering is based on original numbering - but as far as I understand History channel decided to renumber episodes from s5-s8 and spread them out so they became s5-s10. And then the started making episodes named from s11. So according to original numbering there is no s9 and s10, but after the renumbering there. Go to thetvdb and you will see that s9+s10 is not there. It seems that s9+s10 was imported into trakt.tv anyhow so that means that s9+s10 now duplicates episodes from the previous seasons. Update Aug2020: trakt.tv now correctly removed season 9 and 10. See more in this discussion (among many) on tvdb forums: https://forums.thetvdb.com/viewtopic.php?f=18&t=29976 I gave this a 3/10 review, why?: I think some episodes are ok, but there is much recycled content across the series it just seems very lazy. So much repetition. And then I really do like that none of the episodes go in depth with their so-called evidence. Show us the texts! And explain the science in greater detail! Show us the full original reports instead of superficial second hand stories by untrustworthy pseudo historians. This could have been so much better.

That dudes hair has definitely been in orbit

I like it, but each episode is just too long. 1hr 30mins just puts me to sleep late at night.

I’m not saying it was Aliens. But it was the Aliens. https://i.imgflip.com/3g5ud2.jpg

They obviously don't believe what the Bible says, unless they can pull it out of context and use it to their advantage. Also a lot of speculation and fantasy run wild. Yes, it would be very cool if it were true, I love syfy, but a lot of the speculations they make have very simple answers. But you can't use your brain unless you're touched by an alien, right? lol

superb show

The show raises interesting questions, but is a bit fast and loose with the term "proof". It's good, but should not be taken literally.

Some subjects are repeated so many times on the episodes just to fill them, and many of the subjects are easily debunked , most of the people commenting on the subjects are just book writers of the same topic or very similar , most of the times is just to sell the books. The positive thing I found about this show is that is very good to make me fall asleep, the narrator and most episodes are so boring that they become so good before sleeping.

A little about me 👋 I am a marketing student in Paris. I love spending afternoons with friends in a cafe or a park.

But more than anything else, I love watching (.. binging…) series on my computer on rainy Sundays or any sunny day for that matter 🙈

I must have watched hundreds of shows by now, from romance to science-fiction series. Often I like to go back to a show I enjoyed. But I don’t feel like watching it all over again…

I created this website so myself and others could find the best episodes of our favourite shows. As of today, I have about 1,000 shows on the website with votes and rating coming from fans.

Hopefully, you can join me from your sofa and enjoy some nice TV!
