Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com

This History Channel series, which moved to H2 for season four, revolves around the idea that earlier civilizations developed their most advanced ideas by means of extraterrestrial influence. A range of speakers, from respected scholars to more conspiracy-minded thinkers ("ancient alien theorists"), sift through the evidence, while a dramatic score juices each revelation. The most famous participant, Erich von Däniken, whose 1968 bestseller Chariots of the Gods encouraged this mode of thinking, figures prominently. Viewers who've watched previous seasons will be familiar with the basic format, as well as the primary theories about alien-inspired architecture and the like, since there's significant repetition from year to year ("Alien Devastations" from season two, for instance, prefigures this set's "Aliens and Mega-Disasters").

Shock-haired, dandily dressed editor and consultant Giorgio A. Tsoukalos presents some of the more colorful, if questionable hypotheses (to Tsoukalos, a close-fitting cap on a Mayan figurine represents a flight helmet). As he exclaims in "The Doomsday Prophecies," an examination of the Mayan Long Count calendar, "Knowledge is the currency of the universe!" He also believes that aliens built Bolivia's geometrically precise Puma Punku. The most science fiction-like episode, "The Greys," revisits abductions through the ages, including the testimony of a woman who claims medical experimentation by tiny bug-eyed men, while the farthest-reaching episodes involve Bigfoot and Leonardo da Vinci (some suggest he was a time traveler). As with Tsoukalos, author David Childress (Technology of the Gods) seems convinced that aliens have been mucking about in human history, even natural phenomena like tsunamis. Reenactments and computer-generated reproductions show how some of these scenarios might have played out. In drawing from archeological artifacts and historical data, there's educational value here, but if you're skeptical going in--you'll probably leave the same way. --Kathleen C. Fennessy

Product Description

Product Description

Could natural disasters really be the work of extraterrestrial forces? In 2011, after a 30-foot tsunami ravaged Tohoku, Japan, the local media reported more than 1,000 UFO sightings over the inundated shoreline. Did otherworldly beings that descended from the sky have anything to do with the abrupt disappearance of the Mayans?

Does the Mayan Long Count Calendar, in which the world ends on December 21st, 2012, give credence to the Doomsday Prophecies? Are Grey Aliens real? Many have claimed to have been visited and even abducted by them. Is NASA sharing all that it knows about the universe? Or are they protecting us from the truth? ANCIENT ALIENS SEASON FOUR continues to examine 25 thousand years of the most credible alien evidence here on earth.

DISC 1: The Mayan Conspiracy / The Doomsday Prophecies / The Greys / Aliens and Mega-Disasters

DISC 2: The NASA Connection / The Mystery of Puma Punku / Aliens and Bigfoot / The Da Vinci Conspiracy

DISC 3: The Time Travelers / Aliens and Dinosaurs

4.0 out of 5 stars An Impressive Fourth Season August 13, 2012
By The Rab
Format:DVD
The History Channel has found its footing once again with the newest season of Ancient Aliens. While some of the theories remain "out there", these episodes explore many possible connections to alien intervention.

The show itself is first-class when providing historical background and finding similarities between unexplained events throughout Earth's ancient past. However, the conclusions that are made are still speculative and do not always directly link these mysterious events to aliens. All other possibilities seem to be dismissed and we are left with "it was aliens and couldn't have been anything else" as explanations.

The episodes are entertaining and will make anyone with an open mind second-guess the history we were led to believe.

First and foremost, History Channel's "Ancient Aliens" is an entertainment program and if you have an interest in the topic (whether or not you believe it), it can be a fun show. Just look at the episode titles if you are on the fence about how seriously you want to take this as science or history. Aliens really can't be responsible for everything that has ever happened on Earth, can they? Tales of mysterious and unexplained phenomenon, folklore and legend, and intergalactic speculation cross all international boundaries and are an inherent part of ancient history and cultural iconography. And as this documentary series began in its first season, it did a good job acknowledging the various interpretations of alien myths across the globe. However, the more we progress--the theories and/or premises behind the show have become a little thinner, a little more hit or miss. I suppose that was to be expected as the program has already delved into the biggest, most well known, and most supported mysteries in earlier seasons. Thus, later seasons (while always entertaining) have had their equal share of fascinating speculation intertwined with engaging historical insights AND with episodes of eye-rolling lunacy.

And I think that is exactly how I might describe Season Four's new episodes. But let's face the honest truth. If you are shopping for Season Four of "Ancient Aliens," I don't think you need much convincing about whether you like the program or not. For my money, these episodes (although still somewhat hit or miss) have a stronger overall impact than Season Three where some of the topics were pretty funny. The show still has some repetition in principle themes. Here, again, we see focus drawn to the Mayans, the pyramids, to Doomsday, to time travel and to various cover-up theories.

1.0 out of 5 stars Too much effort to make it dramatic April 18, 2014
By MLB
Format:Amazon Instant Video
If they use the phrase "....as Ancient Alien Theorists believe..." one more time, I'm going to melt down. The show is, well was, fascinating enough without the continual effort to make it dramatic. In other words, it's become so overdone that it's almost unwatchable. Some of the theorists, such as Georgio Tsoukalos, destroy their credibility by saying that one and only one conclusion can be drawn about a set of data when there are obviously several ways to interpret them. It would be a dynamic show if they would make their case without the huckster showmanship and it would be even better if they would collectively review their conclusions and weed out the ridiculously inconsistent ones before making a fool of themselves by proposing them with no apparent forethought. A good example would be the supposed destruction of Puma Punko by nuclear or high energy holocaust when there is not one shred of presented evidence of even one piece of melted slag on the site. It would seem that the theorist had never seen the results of a nuclear blast, or even an atomic one for that matter.

5.0 out of 5 stars Last great season! March 7, 2014
Format:Amazon Instant Video|Verified Purchase
After season 4 they REALLY start reaching....but season 4 has Puma Punko one of the worlds biggest mysteries. We don't know who built it, but this theory is a viable as any out there.

3.0 out of 5 stars Wow! June 10, 2014
By SWK Mom
Format:Amazon Instant Video
There is no way, what so ever, humans could make a TV show like this on their own, impossible. In my opinion, there had to be some kind of extraterrestrial intervention.

3.0 out of 5 stars Entertaining, but beware of their "facts." April 10, 2014
Format:Amazon Instant Video
The show is definitely entertaining but when it comes to "facts," you better double check their sources. Some biblical references made by the guests were way off so I can only imagine their way off in other areas too.

1.0 out of 5 stars fiction April 18, 2014
By DRB
Format:Amazon Instant Video
Historically and anthropologically inaccurate. Complete fabrication to sell books and films. The Maya did not vanish. The calendar didn't indicate the end of the world or the return of astronauts - it was the end of the "long count".

I enjoy watching this show purely for entertainment purposes. Their spectacular leaps of logic are so funny sometimes that I can't help but watch. It's rather addictive. I don't think the science is exactly rigorous, but it's great for provoking the imagination and the "what ifs". I love the show and will definitely keep watching!
