Show Summary

Ancient Aliens is an American television series that premiered on April 20, 2010 on the History channel.

    • Great Series

      Nice to hear an alternative to established theories.

      Food for thought.

    • Best sit-com ever!!

      I have watched each and every episode of Ancient Aliens that has ever aired, and find that it is the only tv show for the last decade, that consistently made me laugh from the inane stupidity displayed by it's hosts. I hope they renew this CRAP every year.
    • Stupid

      Also, racist. Yes, I said racist.


      because of the inherent assumption that not-white ancient people were inherently incapable of doing amazing feats themselves... they needed help. Granted, not from the Benevolent White Man, but, in this case, extra-terrestrials.


      Is it really that hard to believe that we've massively underestimated the technical advances of our past? Leonardo Da Vinci was imagining cameras and helicopters and guns. Ancient Egyptians likely had a basic understanding of electricity and energy (see: Egyptian Battery). Hell... the Library of Alexandria!

      I'm fine with thinking we're not alone. The universe is way too big and there's way too much stuff in it for us to be the only life. But in terms of sheer size alone, we are alone. The universe isn't just way too big, it's also expanding into infinity at an ever-increasing, infinite rate. The chances of any creature, let alone us, being able to traverse the universe are slim-to-none. So yeah, there's most likely other life in the universe. There's most likely even more-intelligent-than-us life in the universe.

      But we've never been visited. The speed of light is not an arbitrary human-imposed limit like the speed of sound. The very fabric of the universe itself will warp to keep anything other than a photon from moving faster than a photon. In order to move faster than the speed of light, you essentially have to be able to raise a middle finger to the universe and tell it to f off.

      Good luck.moreless
    • There is something to all this and it is undisputable.

      For example what are the odds that the moon is at the exact distance to perfectly block out all but the suns corona?

      Then the odds that the moon has a lopsided center of gravity so one side is always facing the earth?

      And the odds of the moon having denser metals at the surface to an extent that it rings like a bell when struck?

      Just like the episode the odds would be closer to shredding the entire encyclopedia brittanica and dropping it out of a plane only to find it perfectly reassembled in stacking alphebetical order.

      Dammit people open your eyes.moreless
    • Is anyone ever going to fix the episode list?

      A quick view of this show on reveals that the episode list has some issues. Seems like the edit listing options has been removed as well. I'm not sure if staff are aware of the incorrect listings but clearly EarlyMemphis has given up on being the editor. Please fix the episode guide, or at least place an edit option so I or someone else can update the episode guide.
