Only slightly more interesting than Decoded and Monster Quest, but otherwise, more of the same seeking but never finding anything. At least you get to see some American History along the way, however, if you already don't know your American History, which most people don't these days, you are liable to come away with some incorrect information regarding American History.

The Ancient Aliens series is much more substantive and better done.

I learn about some artifacts and places I hadn't heard of before, which I think is fun. As a descendant of those Vikings, I of course don't believe that Columbus was the first non-native to come here (duh). But I think this gets me thinking about who all might have escaped here. Wolter doesn't lie about stuff, I don't think. It strikes me as possible that he is paid to be a debunker. Anything that could seriously undermine the existing world order comes up negative... which I guess I sort of feel is a good thing. Anarchy is not a good thing.

His "I'm going to get to the bottom of this" rings false to me, especially when he usually doesn't. I'd prefer it a little more understated and humble, especially since there are often tiny shreds of evidence which ultimately come up as nothing. All the music sounds like he's going into a massive battle, which wears me out a bit.

He goes to a park some miles outside the Denver airport, digs a 2 foot hole in the ground and concludes that there could in principle be a massive underground tunnel system there. (?) And some dowsers smell 50 ounces of gold, which never turns up, but there's a weak spot in next to some well in the woods on some guy's property, which they think might house (yes) the Ark of the Covenant... (?) And amazingly enough, they don't find it. The bravado is so overstated and the results so unexciting, that I think it's on purpose.

And would somebody please research the burial site in Salisbury, MA?

I love geology and I love exploring America. As long as they don't start chasing Big Foot or whatever, I'm in. The only thing I wish they did talk more about, is what's going on. Maybe it's not sexy to enough viewers with all the science being used?? I happen to like that, and if you want to talk about it, fantastic. Also, I don't need dramatic music for watching people walking down a hill. Maybe the producers need some time to work out the bugs. (?)

This could be such a great show...it is amusing that some of the regular people on each episode hate being on camera and are totally awkward. There are always questions while I'm watching and wish the show was meatier! Explain why a burial site is off-limits to imaging methods to determine what's under the surface. You'd make sense of the local or __ laws and also keep viewers on track with why activity was halted. Explain to people what the heck you're seeing as you see it. Otherwise, we are watching a reality show of sorts. We're not all drooling on ourselves here; give us something to chew on!

If only they showed images as the host looked through the microscope...I'm constantly asking the TV, "What do you see? What's the difference?" And so on. Still gonna watch this, though. REALLY hoping they do eventually find giant Vikings in MN. Or anywhere in the States. Plus, it's really intriguing to think about random people visiting the country when it was so difficult to get around (before modern travel options)--and it took forever to make a 300-mile journey. So, why did they?

Scott Wolter repeating himself again and again was too much me. Not only that he mostly just repeated what everyone else said. Don`t waste your time or money

Don't beleive this garbage. Scott Wolter's creditials are false. Less than 10% of what you see in this show is true.
S1E1: Richard L Thornton has done all of the research. See his review. The government did not keep Scott out of that site because if they had he would have been arrested for flying surveillance over the area.
S1E2: Anglo Saxon runes from the 1200's? The basis for Old English has existed since about the year 400AD... so 800 years later runes would be nearly phased out. Secondly the runes pictured when translated do not follow the grammar guidelines of Elder Futhark... which was phased out 400 years before the claimed date of the runes.
If you need more information on why you should not beleive the most of this, check out Author Jason Colavito's blog. He is a reputable author who has done research into Scott Wolter's credentials, as wel as debunked his supposed discoveries.

In the MN Giants episode, why didn't he just did up the bones to prove there was a giant there... What a scam! Truely disappointed!

Fun to see the artifacts uncovered. Not mutch depth or justification for their conclusions.

Really a waste of time. Kept waiting for the big reveal only to be disappointed.

I found this series interesting but felt that some of the conclusions were a bit "forced." I also have to add the caveat that I was expecting more of an archaeological type of program and that's not what this is. This is a "forensic geologist" searching for evidence to prove theories. My favorite archaeological program, "Time Team," searches for information to figure out what might have been going on in the area and formulating theories based on the physical evidence. Very different.

I can't give this series greater than a 2 star rating. The information, subject matter and my own curiosity dragged me to watch. However, I could not sit through any one episode. While another reviewer said to just take it as entertainment, I can not bring myself to do that. The Geologist in this series is, quite simply, an idiot. I was too distracted from his antics and ignorance to enjoy the subject matter. So disappointed with History channel for this.
