Is it possible that intelligent life forms visited Earth thousands of years ago, bringing with them technology that drastically affected the course of history and man’s own development?

Presented in the 1968 bestselling book Chariots of the Gods, by Erich von Daniken, the theory of “ancient aliens” rocked people’s beliefs in mankind’s progress. Ancient cave drawings of strange creatures, remains of landing strips in Peru, and Indian texts that describe the “flying machines of the gods” were just a few of the odd archaeological artifacts cited by von Daniken as proof that ancient astronauts were well known to our ancestors.

Produced with the exclusive cooperation of von Daniken himself, ANCIENT ALIENS launches all-new expeditions to seek out and evaluate this evidence, with a concentration on discoveries of the last 30 years, including unusual DNA findings on man’s evolution and newly decoded artifacts from Egypt to Syria to South America. It is a balanced investigation into a theory some believe cannot be true, but many agree cannot be ignored.

Includes all five revealing episodes.

DISC 1: The Evidence / The Visitors
DISC 2: The Mission / Closer Encounters

                      This series is the launch pad to take you beyond thought provoking. Just ask yourself, in the entire universe, are there other forms of self aware matter, other than our own carbon based form,. The answer is of course and it is precious. As to the Doubting Thomas's out there, think about stepping into the not so imaginary time machine with an I phone in your pocket and try to explain it to a super bowel full the most brilliant minds you could find at the turn of the 20 century. And yes this is a must view for all us self aware carbon based forms

                                Some arguments presented can be dismissed, but others are just fascinating and hard to deny.
                                A must-view.

                                  Are the theories presented in this series mind-boggling? Yes. Does that mean they can't be true? No. After watching this series and doing some independent research it seems that there is more physical and anecdotal evidence for the Ancient Alien theory than there is Christianity, Judiasm, or any other supposed "organized" religion. This series is very thought-provoking and gave me a whole new interpretation of the history of mankind that actually more closely aligns with my personal beliefs -- that we are not alone in the universe and that to assume that we are the most intelligent beings in the entire universe is folly. Even a civilization only 10,000 years more advanced than ours (.0001% of Earth's timeline) could potentially have technological and mental abilities that would still appear to us as godlike so the precepts contained in this series seem eminently plausible and entirely possible. GREAT STUFF!!!

                                      Before I saw this series I was sceptical about any one of these examples being evidence of alien contact and would consider anyone who was a believer as not being a critical thinker. But when all examples are tied together I found myself struggling to not believe;however, the evidence is compelling. In order to accept these theories you first have to believe that advanced alien life is very possible. The odds of there being alien life are far too great not to believe.

                                        Although this series is provoking, I don't subscribe totally to the ET theory. I, like John A West, Graham Hancock (who comments frequently throughout the series) subscribe to the theory that we humans constructed these monuments and possessed technologies far beyond what exist today. Somehow, part of our history has been almost totally wiped out. The myths and legends of tribes throughout the earth back this up. Mankind has been here for much longer than mainstream historians wish to admit. Our own arrogance clouds true thought.

                                          This series is a creationalist's worst nightmare. The evidence is extremely convincing. I am an agnostic, so this show really is very interesting to me. If people believe in a God or Gods, why not aliens? It is not that farfetched! Great series!

                                              Love it and season 2 as well.

                                              This show is completely insane. The mere notion that aliens had any part in our history is insulting to human intelligence and diligence. Most of the "facts" brought up are either complete fabrications or are easily refuted by a basic knowledge of the internet. I have changed the channel to the History Channel many times listening about stories of an ancient culture, only to be disappointed by the mention of aliens or the sight of Giorgio Tsoukalous. This man would be more welcome amongst the members of the Jersey Shore insane asylum than the History Channel. I suppose I cannot speak poorly on the History Channel's other amazing productions. They always make things interesting, even if it is absolutely psychotic

                                                This series is highly inaccurate, with shady talking heads. An example would be David Childress, who was involved in litigation involving publishing information contained in anothers master's thesis. All of the evidence that is given does not match what scientific dating and evidence shows. While watching this series, do some research on the interviewees, and ask yourself whats more probable: what mainstream science states, or aliens and atlantis are responsible. It is also not wise policy to take legend and myth and bring it into the scientific realm when it wont stand up to scientific critique.

                                                  If you like history, controversy, and persuasive evidence, this series will give you your money's worth. I love the quality of the production, the shoots on location, and detail of explantations in this series. Season 2 is just as exciting and educational. If you have an open mind, you will wonder why the ancient alien theory isn't mainstream science already.
