I think i might have found myself a new awesome show to watch on TV.
There is basically only 4 programs i ever watch. I dont watch the news, i dont watch movies on TV, i dont watch reruns of Friends. (20 times was enough)
Im a football fan and i dont even watch that at home. I go to the pub.
The only time i turn my TV on is during dinner and only to watch watch the documentary channels. History channel, National Geographic, NatGeo, Discovery channel, etc.
Last few weeks i watched almost every day a docu-series called:
“Second World War in color” (or something similar).
But as all things the series came to an end. There are only so many second world war stories you can tell. We know, the bad guy shoots himself in the head at the end.
I was looking for something else that would peak my interest again and just today did i run into the perfect show for me.
Most of you have heard about this show. If not by watching the show, but from the memes that were popular at one time.
As much as i am a subscriber of what you would call “rational skepticism” and the show completely goes against my worldviews i could not have been more entertained.
Dont get me wrong, the show is completely bonkers and not a single thing they say has any basis in reality but the stretch they make from “mystery A” to “Its Aliens” is so brilliant that it cant not entertain you.
Im someone that loves mystery, fiction, high fantasy. Im a fan of old Greek mythology, Norse mythology, Christian mythology. Anything that gives a larger then life explanation of the world and makes extremely bold claims.
Theres something very magical in seeing how people perceive the world or used to perceive the world around them.
I felt that this show really fell right in there perfectly and i loved it right away.
The episode i watched today was about “dissapearing” islands. (I think it was season 6)
There was this island in Micronesia (i think) called “Sandy Island,” (you can look it up) and in the show instead of looking at more realistic conclusions like:
It was a human error in map making, the island never really existed….
They immediately went with (mind you, without any evidence whatsoever and not a single thing that would even point to alien presence):
Its an Alien base that is hidden by stealth technology where Alien ships come to refuel. (I kid you not)
And how am i not supposed to think this show is brilliant. 😀
Theres also this sentence the narrator keeps repeating that just makes me giggle every time. Its one of those sentences you pick when you play a drinking game.
Could it be possible that alien, dot dot dot….
Its pretty obvious why the show has to do that. The context isnt really changed, but with a presentation like this, what they can do with the narrative expands greatly.
Since this is a nonsense show, that has basically Mulder wannabes presenting the topics, if they claimed with any degree of certainty that “It was Aliens“, they would get a lot of backlash. Instead what they do is turn this into a “What if show”, or a “mystery show”.
Anyways. Just wanted to share that. lol.
So… have you guys seen this show, what did you think?
Have you been probed by aliens?
If you ran into an alien, would you want Mulder with you or Ripley?
haha. Ill see you around. Keep on Steeming and Whalesharing. 😀
