My brother is watching 'Ancient Aliens', I greatly dislike that show, everything they point out something historically interesting, they toss in how it had to be Aliens and it drives me mad...I even got a headache.History Channel used to be a nice TV channel. Nowadays, is basically reality shows and cheap conspiracy theorists talking about their bad trips (or that is how Ancient Aliens sounds like).
You're too generous... Even when they had more "history", they got a lot of it wrong. My particular
personal peeve is when they tell some 20th Century story (usually World War 2), and illustrate it with
period motion-picture footage... and ALWAYS
manage to find the wrong footage - wrong army, wrong
kind of plane, wrong bridge... MAPS OF THE WRONG COUNTRIES
