Premiere episodes can certainly make or break a TV series. I’ll use these posts to let you know some of the premieres (new and old) that I loved and kept me watching a certain TV show through all the seasons.
Season 1 Episode 1 of Ancient Aliens on the History Channel aired on April 20, 2010. It was a one-hour, 29-minute episode called “The Evidence” to get the ball rolling. There was a two-hour pilot episode (S1, Ep 0) called “Chariots, Gods and Beyond” that I have never seen.
This is the episode description from the History Channel:
“If ancient aliens visited Earth, what was their legacy, and did they leave behind clues that exist in plain sight such as sophisticated aircraft, complex electrical grids, and intricate construction machinery?
Indian Sanskrit texts, dating back to 6000 B.C., describe in varying but vivid detail flying machines called Vimanas. Megalithic stone structures in Egypt reveal evidence of precision saw work.
Interpretations of the Jewish Zohar writings offer depictions of a life-sustaining manna machine, eerily similar to chlorella algae processing systems today. Are these examples of modern technology, or is there evidence that these incredible mechanisms existed on Earth thousands of years ago?”
This episode (and all Ancient Aliens episodes) is narrated by Robert Clotworthy. He does a masterful job, with his voice, to maintain interest in any material. The series is based on and inspired by the works of Erich von Däniken and Zecharia Sitchin, among other writers.
Ancient Alien theory is a pseudoscientific hypothesis that holds that intelligent extraterrestrial beings visited Earth and made contact with humans in antiquity and prehistoric times.
Proponents suggest that this contact influenced the development of modern cultures, technologies, religions, and human biology. A common position is that deities from most, if not all, religions are extraterrestrial in origin and that advanced technologies brought to Earth by ancient astronauts were interpreted as evidence of divine status by early humans.
Some of the recurring guests are David Childress, Giorgio A. Tsoukalos, Linda Moulton Howe, Philip Coppens, and Jonathan Young. The executive producer for the show is Kevin Burns.
I’ll probably never get to visit any of these museums or places like Puma Punku so this is as close as I’ll ever be. I really enjoy the theories and making me wonder if some of them could possibly be true. There is certainly a lot of things I can’t explain.
