Ancient Aliens
The Profit
Chasing Classic Cars



I do love watching Ancient Aliens. it is one of my favorite comedies!


He's better than most of the guys on SNL!

 
Why the attitude? The show is well produced and by featuring the ruins of ancient civilizations, they do bring up interesting questions.  Where did these ancient civilizations get their technologies? How did civilizations thousands of miles apart and on different continents build similar structures? How did civilizations thousands of miles apart build structures which align with structures of other civilizations?  Their theories, when backed up by physical evidence, is no less valid than the theories of "real scientists" such as theoretic physicists.

    Attitude? I've said that I enjoy the show, therefore I watch it. I actually have done a lot of reading on the subject over the last 40 years since I first read Velikovsky in my teens and don't disagree with a lot of the conclusions. However, the way the show is done is as entertainment and at that somewhat campy. To me, the show doesn't take itself too seriously, but it is entertaining. Many of the subjects such as the Indian "vimanas" have been debated for years but they do get people who wholeheartedly believe it to be true. That's "show business" and keeps the advertisers and viewers coming. At that, the show is very successful. 
     
    PS I do agree they bring up interesting questions----and that's one of the reasons I keep watching. I also agree that a lot of things are not necessarily as they seem. You certainly have read a lot into the one sentence regarding Giorgio Tsoukalos!

      Sorry, Ed. I didn't quite catch your drift. It sounded like you thought it was not a serious show. I don't always agree with some of their conclusions, but I am fascinated by their visits to Central and South America to explore the ruins while comparing them with other structures in places like Africa and England. I'm also inquisitive as to how the ancients built such architecturally and mechanically difficult structures. Heck, we can't even build a bridge that doesn't require major maintenance within the first 10-15 years of construction.

        I havent watched Ancient Aliens in a while ... that guy appears to have put on weight and lowered his hair.
         
        That said, I have toured Tiawanaku high in the Bolivian Andes; there is no way that the ancient ancestors of the Aymara could have produced such cuts in granite with the tools and technology available millenia ago.

          We've really been enjoying Hannibal, Almost Human, Agents of SHIELD and the usual fare of Castle and Person of Interest. Was sad to see Sleepy Hollow finish up its season early and Almost Human, too. But, I'm really glad Hannibal is back for a 2nd season. May possibly be the best thing out there right now.

            That is what I do enjoy about that general subject----it really makes you wonder, doesn't it?

              Darn. I wondered where I left that thing.

                Drama Fever channel for my Korean Soap Operas.

                Real Housewives of Atlanta currently supplies my American drama....in much higher volume.

                  Nothing like jumping into a 6 year old thread, but I've recently discovered a fairly new show on Comedy Central called Broad City that I find laugh-out loud hilarious, and I rarely laugh out loud at TV shows.
                   
                  I thought my days of watching two pot smoking twenty-somethings ended with Cheech and Chong 35 years ago, but this one is like Cheech and Chong 2014 only now it's two girls and they live in NY City and sleep around a bit when the pot plot lines slow down, so there's that too.

                    Come to think of it... 6 years later...& it's not even Fall.

                    I love watching the World Series of Poker when it rolls around every year.

                    If it's not a funny and/or a ridiculously dysfunctional show...let it be full of strategy profit sunglasses indoors & gaudy bracelets for the winners.

                        I wonder how long a show of people doing nothing but jumping sharks would last...
                         
                        Apparently the real-life, self-narrated retrospective sitcom is the hot 30-minute ticket on network TV this season.  ABC started it with The Goldbergs, NBC rolled out Growing Up Fisher a few weeks back, and last night Fox premiered Surviving Jack.

                          There's a show on ABC called The Neighbors.

                          They moved from my beloved Bayonne NJ to Hidden Hills...where the neighbors are aliens. Aliens! C'mon now.

                              I'll be watching the final of "How I met your mother" tomorrow. The paper, today, called it one of the great ensemble shows. I'm surprised that it lasted 9 years. I do appreciate it, though, when stake holders find the way to bring a show to a conclusion. Blacklist keeps getting better, and Intelligence is not half bad, especially compared to Almost Human which I've watched for only an episode and a half.

                                I've watched "How I met your Mother" from the beginning because Ted was an architect.

                                  Another fan of "HIMYM" here.  Davydd, I hope you weren't too Ted-like in your earlier years.

                                    I was probably more like "Dave Willis" (Peter Duel) in an old sitcom Love on a Rooftop. Dave was a married (to Judy Carne) architect who made $85.37 per week.
