I was perusing the Ancient Aliens on Demand selections when I came across "Aliens and the Civil War".
How did I miss this?!?!?!
So I set my DVR for it.
Friday at 7:00, I think.

You will, of course, report back.

Oh, you can't DVR it?

Here's a summary:
Looks promising!

Winston, I'm a little concerned by your description of this as 'promising'… O_o

Promising to be yet another load of non-historical drivel that avoids facts like icebergs avoid tropical holidays?

Promising to be a laugh-a-minute? Or maybe promising to fail to recognise that the Civil War was an all-human affair, for which neither credit nor blame can be assigned to extraterrestrials…?

Wait a moment… if these aliens were interfering with events in the 1860's… how can they be ancient??? ;)

heck, I'm only 65 and many people think I'm ancient!!

Yeah, in less than a month, me as well, but in my case, they're right. ;->=

Could "Ancient Aliens" be worse? Yes, I watched it on Vice for about 5 minutes. They had two stoners watching the show and commenting on it. Much worse. "Fat, drunk, and stupid" only in this case fat, stoned, and stupid.

No Giorgio? It can't be Ancient Aliens then.

I'll just cross that off my to watch list and watch something else.

Taking into account a few of the G.A.S.L.I.G.H.T. scenarios I've witnessed and played, I'm surprised it hasn't shown up yet! (Hey Chris, Buck--how 'bout it? "Take us to your Leader" Yeah, but which one? Honest Abe or Jeff Davis?)
