Editorial Reviews

Is it possible that intelligent life forms visited Earth thousands of years ago, bringing with them technology that drastically affected the course of history and man s own development? Presented in the 1968 bestselling book Chariots of the Gods, by Erich von Daniken, the theory of 'ancient aliens' rocked people's beliefs in mankind s progress. Ancient cave drawings of strange creatures, remains of landing strips in Peru, and Indian texts that describe the 'flying machines of the gods' were just a few of the odd archaeological artifacts cited by von Daniken as proof that ancient astronauts were well known to our ancestors. Produced with the exclusive cooperation of von Daniken himself, Ancient Aliens launches all-new expeditions to seek out and evaluate this evidence, with a concentration on discoveries of the last 30 years, including unusual DNA findings on man's evolution and newly decoded artifacts from Egypt to Syria to South America. It is a balanced investigation into a theory some believe cannot be true, but many agree cannot be ignored.

Includes all five revealing episodes on stunning high definition Blu-ray:

Bought this dvd on a whim because it was $5 at a store. The series is now my secret indulgence. Scientifically, this series take massive inductive leaps from what is often minimal evidence. (I have only seen seasons 1 and 2, so far) Still they do it in a highly entertaining way, and for some reason, I just can't get enough of this show. It definitely makes you think. My main problem with the series is they introduce a piece of evidence, they introduce the traditionally accepted view and then they introduce the alien theory, when there may be some or many other possible solutions that fit. Still it is a show about Ancient Aliens, and they do put there ideas out there as theories or hypotheses. Overall entertaining, and I enjoy seeing the one guy with the supernatural hair.

Could it be possible that intelligent life forms visited Earth thousands of years ago, bringing with them knowledge and technology that greatly altered the course of history and human development on Earth? The Ancient Astronauts mini-series on DVD explores this possibility in depth.

Consider the following:

** How is it that the ancient Mayan calendar is more accurate than our own if the ancients were so primitive?
** What are the pyramids really for? They're located across the globe, not just in Egypt.
** Could primitive people really move solid blocks the size of train cars with only ropes and ramps to build the pyramids? Did they really bring the quartz and granite, which is only found many miles away in most cases, to the construction site, again, by pulling train car sized chunks with ropes?
** Why are there ancient artifacts and glyphs which look identical to jet airplanes that we use today?
** Did ancient Egyptians use electricity to light the internal chambers of their monuments and pyramids?
** Were the Nasca lines actually landing strips for ancient flying craft?
** How was the top of an entire mountain range artificially removed in ancient times to create the plateau where many of the "landing strip" type Nasca lines are located?

There are so many mysteries about the ancients....

** How they built such monumental megalithic structures that we would be hard pressed to attempt to build even today ** Why they had astronomical maps and maps of the Earth that match ours today, yet our maps only became as accurate as the ancient ones in the last 50 years.
** Why does every ancient religion indicate their "Gods" descended from the sky, heavens, or space bringing knowledge to their peoples?

I'm torn: I love the intrigue of asking 'what if' questions--'what if aliens exist?' and etc.

So I enjoy the inquisitive nature of this series. I also find much of the archaeological and historical data to be quite provocative; many of these seem to require broadening our prior understandings and conceptualizations of ancient cultures to fit finds like aerodynamic carved sculptures that are essentially gliders capable of actual flight and exceedingly similar stories and depictions of 'god-like' or powerful beings from the sky, from cultures on opposite sides of the globe, and etc. This series is not short on data that is mysterious and hard to write off as coincidental.

But, just as often as the series brings up 'conventional' explanations that seem unsatisfactory for the data, the Ancient Alien Theorists make blindingly erroneous, or at least baseless, leaps of logic, connect way too many ideas with very separate historical/mythological contexts and artifacts/phenomena. At the very best, the AA-Theorists are way to generous in equating their 'what-if' speculations with logical conclusions from the data; at worst they are simply cramming their favored explanations into the data provided at the expense of much simpler explanations (Occam's Razor).

For example, at one point (I believe in Episode 4) a tenuous connection is made between present-day atomic weapons and the biblical story of the destruction of Sodom and Gomorrah, based on the merit of both being fiery explosions and because Lot's wife was told not to look back at the explosion, which is also similar advice given to people observing the first atomic tests.

Really cool show, very thought provoking. You should have an open mind while watching. Even if you vehemently disagree with the evidence its still really cool to think about.

Picked these up last week as I was looking for something to spark my imagination. These definitely fit the bill.
The entire documentary is NOT a collection of stories or whack jobs sharing ideas on creation. This spans many different topics whether it be human creation, building of the pyramids etc. All pointing the finger towards alien intervention and scientifically supported or debated.

The video and audio quality is fantastic, there are a few short scenes of old footage that were clearly not transferred over into HD but it's few and far between. If you're looking to spark the imagination and open your mind to other possibilities then this is for you. It's a well done program worth watching, especially on Blu-ray.
