The concept of extraterrestrials influencing mankind’s evolution has been around for many years. Scientists have theorized about it while science-fiction authors have written about it off and on for decades. Still, there has never been a comprehensive analysis of the facts involved…until now. The fine folks at The History Channel have teamed up with Lionsgate to release ANCIENT ALIENS: THE COMPLETE SEASONS 1-6 on DVD. This 23-disc collection is a Must Have for fans of riveting documentary television or anyone who has ever questioned our history books. And regardless of whether or not you are new to the show, this series will definitely make you question a few things about everyday life.
If you are not familiar with ANCIENT ALIENS, here is the series’ plot synopsis courtesy of Lionsgate:
HISTORY® takes you on a mind-bending journey into our deep past with the monumental gift set, ANCIENT ALIENS®: SEASONS 1–6. From 75 million years of the most credible evidence unearthed, we’ll explore the ancient and mysterious, from sacred relics, artifacts, and wall carvings to technologies, places, and lore, all in a search for the humankind’s origins and even the secrets of the universe. New interpretations of ancient texts reveal new historical possibilities: Were ancient gods really aliens? Was Satan really humanity’s ally in the Bible? This groundbreaking HISTORY® series also uncovers the alien dimension within secret codes, deadly cults, mega-disasters, and plagues; alien connections to dinosaurs, NASA, and even the Third Reich; and considers time travel, underwater UFO activity, ancient martian civilizations, the possibility that some children have alien DNA — and if you can believe it, much more. Experience the trip of a lifetime (or many) in this mother of all gift sets.
I have to confess I had only watched ANCIENT ALIENS a couple of times prior to receiving this complete set. I liked what I saw, which is what prompted me to check out the whole series. And I’m certainly glad I did! This is an amazing show, chocked full of informative facts and intelligent speculation.
Each episode is carefully crafted around specific subjects, such as Mysterious Places, Aliens and Mysterious Rituals, The NASA Connection, and much, much more. The evidence is presented in an easy-to-understand way, which allows for more learning and less frustration; there’s nothing worse than struggling to understand an interesting topic because the information is given in a manner way above the layperson’s head. That is not an issue at all here, thankfully.
I think what impresses me the most about this collection is how it ALL ties in together. Despite the hundreds of individual topics and speculations presented throughout the show, the data all seems to circle back to the singular, primary theme: we have been visited before. Every episode tackles tough-to-answer questions, but the end result is the same.
Another big draw for this ANCIENT ALIENS set is the packaging. Yes, this might sound strange, but this set is impressive to look at on the shelf. Some collections are just sold in rinky-dink packages that don’t hold up. But the case for this one is thick and holds the 23 discs easily. This will make an amazing gift to give someone for any reason.
ANCIENT ALIENS: THE COMPLETE SEASONS 1-6 is a huge win for me, and I recommend picking this up immediately. Even if you’ve never watched the show before and are just curious, this is the definitive look into a complex theory. The collection is available now.
