Ancient Aliens explores the controversial theory that extraterrestrials have visited Earth for millions of years. From the age of the dinosaurs to ancient Egypt, from early cave drawings to continued mass sightings in the US, each episode in this hit HISTORY series gives historic depth to the questions, speculations, provocative controversies, first-hand accounts and grounded theories surrounding this age old debate. Did intelligent beings from outer space visit Earth thousands of years ago? I didn’t know there were pyramids all over the world, even in Antartica, so there may be something to all this after all. According to the Ancient Astronaut theorists, these discoveries may reveal not only that extraterrestrials visited Earth in the distant past, but they may still live among us today. The Episode on Steve Jobs and Thomas Edison lost me though – there is no way they got their so-called futuristic ideas from aliens. There are episodes on the greater number of UFO sightings in Russia and China.  And on the Russian president who doesn’t seem nuts but who insists he was abducted by aliens.

The series each week asks if Ancient Aliens truly were involved in the earliest history of this planet, and that researchers agree they were. Well, that remains to be seen, no matter the so-called historical evidence.
