Science and mythology – and how they are the same thing.
It’s hard to believe that the History Channels series “Ancient Aliens” has been around since 2009. This week, the new season (11) arrives on DVD. The series has had a cultural phenomenon that has viewers wanting to know: Is this true? Each of the 15 episodes for season 11 hooks the viewer into believing that the truth will be provided right in front of their eyes. However, I found the episodes do a great job of presenting a case for belief, but also allowing the viewer to “stay hungry” and encouraging the viewer to dig a little deeper. Please do not confuse this with a critic review, but a strong point that has made this series so successful.
I found season 11 to be yet another great season. This series is thought-provoking and provides different points of view on our world. It is up to each viewer to believe what they want to believe and to dig a little deeper into finding the truth. The series provides government employees, worldwide researchers, university credentials, and historical data in a genuine effort to inform and expose ancient mysteries. This is what keeps the series a vital part of our information society.
Each series continues to explore the mysteries of the galaxy and to try and bring some understanding to strange and unexplained events. What is also refreshing is what seems to be some tension between Ramy and Giorgio at times. Ramy Romany is the Egyptologist for “Ancient Aliens” and has been for about five seasons, while Giorgio A. Tsoukalos believes in the idea that ancient alien astronauts had contact with our ancient ancestors. So it is great to hear two well-educated individuals offering different opinions on a subject without out them arguing and bickering.
I would also add that even if you are a casual viewer or someone that is not really into “Ancient Aliens,” there are two episodes that most viewers can relate to and they are episodes 2 and 6. Why? Most viewers have heard of Leonardo da Vinci (episode 2) and his unusual methods, while the vast majority of viewers have heard about the strange events surrounding Area 51 (episode 6).
So, let’s see what it is that makes up Season 11: Volume 1:
