Product Description

Amazon.ca

Erich von Däniken's Chariots of the Gods provides the inspiration for this History Channel series, which takes UFOs and extraterrestrials deadly seriously. Over five episodes, it explores phenomena throughout the ages that defy explanation. The first, "Evidence," looks at Indian aeronautical texts, the Great Pyramid of Giza, and the Saqqara Bird, an Egyptian carving that anticipates the airplane. Legendary Times publisher and consulting producer Giorgio A. Tsoukalos feels that items like the figurine "have nothing in common with anything similar in nature." That's a matter of opinion, though other authors, engineers, and investigators tend to agree, which isn't a problem in and of itself, except there are few dissenting voices.

In "The Visitors," "The Mission," and "Closer Encounters," the show travels to Peru, Mali, Iraq, and other locations to discuss elongated skulls, cattle mutilation, and primitive stargazing (the theory that King Tut might have been part-alien seems pretty far-fetched). Further references to the Knights Templar and the Ark of the Covenant, which some believe lies beneath an island in Nova Scotia, bring Spielberg blockbusters, like Indiana Jones and the Raiders of the Lost Ark, to mind. The series concludes with "The Return," a look at sightings and attempts to communicate with aliens by NASA and SETI (Search for Extraterrestrial Intelligence).

Like von Däniken's controversial bestseller, Ancient Aliens presents intriguing data but calls for a healthy degree of skepticism, since there's more speculation on offer than verifiable fact (the boisterous Swiss scribe also appears in the program). The academic speakers make valid points, but a few experts seem less credible. It's easier, for instance, to trust an MIT or UCLA scholar over a radio host or crop circle researcher. This three-disc set concludes with a bonus episode, "Chariots, Gods and Beyond," which surveys the links between theology and ancient astronaut theory. --Kathleen C. Fennessy

4.0 out of 5 stars Hmmm...Human ingenuity or alien technology? Feb. 16 2011
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I liked this series. It brought up a lot of interesting facts and questions that are not normally heard or discussed.

You might have guessed from the title that they are selling an idea; and your right, they are. What I mean is that everything has an alien slant to it. "We don't know how the ancients did it...but...it must have been aliens that help them". Yea, that philosophy is not really good science. I don't know how magicians do their tricks either but are they gods, aliens, or being from another dimension? Not likely.

Despite the slant, they do bring up a lot of good questions and answers. I really enjoyed hearing a different take on an old story. This video makes you think, as it was meant to do. Hear the evidence for yourself and make your own decision.

If this is just the first season, then I will certainly pick us future seasons when they are released. They do bring up good questions even if they can't prove they claim.

Product arrived on time in good condition; I've only watched part of the season so I can't give a total review of the product, but so far, very good. I received the product about 3 weeks ago.

So interesting. Sometimes poses more questions than it gives answers but that is just food for thought. Great opportunity to fuel discussions with friends.
