Another season of alien intervention belongs to HISTORY. ANCIENT ALIENS continues to examine 75 million years of the most credible alien evidence here on Earth. SEASON 3 explores new directions, including sightings and phenomena from ancient times to the present. From the age of dinosaurs to ancient Egypt, from early cave drawings to continued mass sightings in the U.S., each episode gives historic depth to the questions, speculations, controversies, firsthand accounts and grounded theories surrounding an age-old debate. Did intelligent life forms from outer space visit Earth thousands of years ago? Do they visit us now? HISTORY ignites the inquiry while exploring possible connections between UFO phenomena and information decoded from ancient texts and artifacts.

The first episode: "Aliens and the Old West" featured too much of the newly released film "Cowboys and Aliens", but did offer some interesting viewpoints. Nearly every episode that followed seemed to re-hash the same subjects of religion, spirituality, gods, and ancient traditions of man.
Many scenes elaborate on the mysteries of our past and speculate in which manner these events are interpreted, but do not offer relative connections between these events and tangible extraterrestrial theory. The show seems to be straying away from solid theories & evidence and is moving more towards superstition, speculation & conspiracy theories.
There are a few highlights of season 3's episodes. Aliens and Ancient Engineers: The unexplainable construction of ancient temples & cities always offers reassurance that our ancestors were influenced by other worldly beings (this subject has already been covered in various past episodes).
Aliens and Evil Places: The mysterious "cauldrons" found in Siberia bring intrigue as to what truly lies beneath the permafrost. These stories are what help make the show great.
Aliens and the Secret Code: Fascinating connections between high energy fields and ancient monuments, locations are too specific to be a coincidence.

I think that's one of the problems of the show. As it has evolved, it has become less about putting together one big theory and more about episodic nuggets that don't always flow together in a natural way. Among the wackier entries of Season Three's sixteen episodes is the inclusion of Aliens as they might have influenced or been interrelated to other monsters (zombies and vampires, for example). While both zombie and vampire legends have remarkable historical back stories that support their current worldwide interpretations, adding aliens to the mix is just a provocation. Several of the episodes were such a stretch, I laughed more often than I was convinced of anything.Read more ›
Then came season three. I must say I was a bit saddened to see the first episode of the show act as a tease for the "Cowboys and Aliens" movie that was due in theaters around the time of episode one. Still, the episode made some pretty strong points. After that episode, things went downhill fast with only two episodes really worth mentioning. One dealt with "Engineering" in ancient times and the other dealt with "Evil Places". It was nice to see the show go more into detail about these two topics. Both episodes did a good job linking to ancient history and providing good evicence.
Besides those two episodes, Season Three felt very flat and was a big disappointment for me. The material talked about in Season Three, for the most part, was not very interesting and even felt recycled from previous seasons in some parts. To top it off, some episodes did a very poor job linking the material to history. Seasons 1 & 2 did a great job making the material simply blow your mind, most of Season 3's material came across almost boring and far-fetched. Both Season 1 and Season 2 linked the material to form a very clear theory that had plenty of evidence to support it; Season 3 comes across as just a miss-mosh of very weak theories that draw at strings sometimes.Read more ›

1st, 2nd and 3rd season of this series are the best. After that they pretty much just repeat themselves over and over each season, with a few new thing here and there. Read morePublished 8 days ago by Clinton
