Watch Ancient Aliens


Ancient Aliens is a popular documentary style television show produced by Kevin Burns. The pilot first aired on The History Channel in spring 2009, and the series began regularly airing in 2010. The premise or the show is that archeological artifacts, historical texts and folklore all prove that aliens have been in contact with humans for centuries. Though many scientific minds dispute the credibility of the show, it was picked up for a fourth season in 2011 and has millions of dedicated viewers. The pilot show was based on theories by Erich Von Daniken who believes early aliens visited humans and taught them the basics of math and engineering. This knowledge contributed to them building such structures as the heads of Easter Island and the pyramids.

One of the most recent and controversial episodes of Ancient Aliens suggests that Bigfoot, a popular legend of an apelike man that wanders and hides in the forest was actually an alien species that visited our planet. The fourth season explores many theories that include aliens forcing dinosaur extinction so the human race could be dominant, time travel in The Bible, alien contact with NASA, and the Mayan doomsday prophecy and its connection to aliens. Each episode tends to draw mockery and criticism from the scientific community. However the show continues to increase in popularity.

Anyone interested in watching the series in its entirety can see previously aired episodes on The History Channel. They air Friday nights at 10/11 PM. Seasons one through four can also be purchased directly from The History Channel's online store.

Ancient Aliens Full Episode Guide

  • What compelled ancient man to move colossal stones, in some cases weighing thousands of pounds, and to build remarkably similar stone monuments all around the world? Is it possible that extraterrestrials instructed the ancients to build these complex structures, or were our ancestors driven to create these monoliths to reconnect with celestial travelers who once walked the Earth?

  • Ancient Astronaut theorist Giorgio Tsoukalos explores the mystery of the Nazca Lines found in the desert region of Southern Peru. Hundreds of gigantic lines, some in the shape of animals, geometric patterns and even an alien-like being, extend for miles over a vast section of the arid plain. Scholars are divided as to who built them and why.

  • Many of humanity's most significant turning points have testified of unexplainable events. Is this merely coincidence, or could it be evidence that the course of human history is being manipulated by an alien agenda? Ancient Astronaut theorists have long proposed that extraterrestrials played a pivotal role in our past, and some believe they continue to keep a careful watch over the progress of mankind.

  • Stories of civilizations large and small disappearing without a trace can be found throughout history and across the globe. Is there a possible connection with sites connected to mysterious vanishings of people, planes, and boats in various locations throughout the world?
