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.
