America’s Medicated Kids
Ancient Aliens is a docuseries where mythology meets history. It explores a number of historical mysteries through ancient texts, legends, and archaeological artifacts, proposing that they are evidence that mankind has had interactions with extra-terrestrials. The show welcomes a number of experts in a wide array of fields ranging from priests who believe that angels were ancient aliens to paranormal talk show hosts.
While a number of topics, conspiracies, and mythologies are tackled, each episode is based around what the “ancient astronaut theorists” theorise actually happened in history. The base assumption around each episode is that extra-terrestrials gave ancient mankind the knowledge to accomplish major feats in architecture and technology. Ancient Aliens has been criticised for being pseudo-scientific, but that certainly does not mean it cannot make viewers question the world around them.
