Last year the History Channel screened a documentary on ancient aliens, which faithful readers will recall displayed some of my work in a negative light. Now, I have received a press release from the Center for Ancient Astronaut Research with some truly depressing news:
Due to the success of ANCIENT ALIENS (2009), the show was picked up by the History Channel for a series! It is with great pride that I announce to you: Ancient Aliens: THE SERIES premieres on the History Channel on Tuesday, April 20, 2010 at 8PM with Episode I: The Evidence!
In total, there will five 2-hour episodes, for a total of ten hours of fake history. I can't wait.
Henry Ford was right when he said "History is bunk." He just didn't know he was talking about a channel.
I am an author and researcher focusing on pop culture, science, and history. Bylines: New Republic, Esquire, Slate, etc. There's more about me in the About Jason tab.
