    OMG where did this come from???

    By mismore, Feb 20, 2009

    My husband was flipping though the channels a few weeks ago, looking for something to watch while the CSI episode was a repeat. He stopped on this show and we haven't stopped watching. The two hosts are fasinating to watch and the more they dig up on the underworlds the more my husband and I realize there's more to things then meets the eyes. I particuallary liked the Japan-centered episode. we look forward every week to this show now, even going as far as PVRing CSI episodes so we can watch this one 'live'. Keep the quality shows comming History, we can always count on you for a diamond in the rough!!moreless

    Tours of interesting, not seen by the public, places.

    I like when they go to ancient archeological places, but the recent locations are not as interesting. I must warn you the host is really obnoxious, but not as bad as the previous host. It really takes away from the show because the host is loud and annoying and doesn't care about the historical significance of the site. They really should get a someone who knows more about civilizations and truly appreciate it's significance. This guy is a terrible representation of the US and should not be on the show. He is not respectful and doesn't let the other people talk. If the show didn't go to some interesting places, I wouldn't watch it.moreless

    Great subjects but hosts need to tone down

    By azuredesert, Jun 28, 2007

    I love the idea behind the show - going underground in well known cities to reveal features that few people know are there. Sometimes it's ancient caverns and other natural formations, and sometimes it's more modern man-made tunnels and rooms. I tend to the like the older places and am sometimes unimpressed with the more recent discoveries. While the subjects are always interesting, the hosts are loud and borderline obnoxious. When I see them in episodes that take place overseas, I cringe at the representation they give as Americans. Loud commentary while everyone else is observing quietly and painfully obvious exclamations need to go to make this show a 10.moreless
