'Ancient Aliens: Season 12, Volume 1'
(2-Disc DVD / NR / 2019 / History Channel - Lionsgate Films)
Overview: The acclaimed History series is back when 'Ancient Aliens: Season 12, Volume 1' arrives on DVD November 19th, 209 from Lionsgate.
Continue to explore the wonders and mysteries of out galaxy and its strange unexplained phenomena with this brand-new season.
DVD Verdict: To my mind, the biggest plus of the show 'Ancient Aliens' is its most obvious element: you know it is going to try to convince you about the existence of aliens and their appearing in human history and you definitely have the curiosity about how they are going to achieve it!
Furthermore, you get what you would expect to get from a show messing around with that subject: lots and lots of footage from ancient monuments, artifacts, drawings, carvings, legends and scripts.
With each volume released a huge variety of information about many civilizations from all over the world are presented in grand detail. Not just in a sweeping way about every aspect of the culture thought, just information related to the topics of the show and that particular volume.
The pieces of the puzzle created are so many, and at the same time the "Original" footage is so eye-grasping that it actually gets you thinking.
On the other hand however, there are occasions like when the philosophy and attitude of the "experts" presenting the show follow the general rule of flawed approach to the truth: instead of trying to prove their claims the best logical way they can in order to make YOU think, Sure, ok, I get it. That could have happened, they prefer to prove them by disproving (and using irony in small doses) from the other side; which is, of course, usually via mainstream archaeology.
It opens with Return to Antarctica. Has Antarctica served as a home base for extraterrestrial visitors to Earth for thousands of years? As human exploration of the frozen continent increases, are we about to come face to face with both the ruins of an ancient advanced civilization buried under the ice - and perhaps even aliens that still inhabit the frozen continent to this day?
Another good, and thorough interesting one is The Star Gods of Sirius. Did aliens from the tiny star Sirius B visit humans in the distant past, imparting the knowledge of civilization to peoples thousands of miles apart? And did they leave behind a vital clue in the form of a word that's embedded in languages all over the globe?
Another one to have you thinking is The Reptilian Agenda. Serpent gods are found in the religious traditions of Mesopotamia, Central and South America, India, China and Japan. Even the Bible describes reptilian entities interacting with humans. Could these stories be describing a race of reptile-like extraterrestrials? And if so, are they still here today?
This first volume rounds out with a right royal doozy on Project Hybrid. Are extraterrestrials altering human DNA and repopulating the Earth with alien/human hybrids? By following the trail of evidence from ancient cultures to modern-day animal mutilations and alien abductions, could we discover that there are otherworldly beings walking among us?
In conclusion, 'Ancient Aliens - Season 12, Vol. 1' is a really comprehensive presentation of various historical places, stories, situations, and artifacts that have mysteries and unexplained factors.
Therefore, it showcases a clear presentation of what makes these varied mysteries baffling in light of the history of technology and this for the subjects it pertains to is a rather comprehensive presentation of the connection between unrelated ancient cultures and structures and revealing unexplained similarities.
Combining excellent quality videos of all these sites around the world, a lot of the items they present can really make one ponder that there maybe validity to the possibility of ancient aliens. This is a Widescreen Presentation (1.78:1) enhanced for 16x9 TVs and comes with 10 episodes:
