It’s not an invasion from space, but it is an invasion about space.
A batch of programs related to the heavens and what might or might not be lurking in them are coming in March, and the Science Channel gets things started on Sunday with a week of offerings on the theme “Are We Alone”? The answer, of course, is, “We have no idea,” but in exploring the question the Science programs at least prove one thing: No camera angle is too odd when the subject is extraterrestrials.
Take, for instance, the presentations in “Close Encounters,” an embarrassing series being introduced with episodes on Tuesday and Friday. Using hokey re-enactments and a smattering of commentary by supposed experts, it dusts off old U.F.O. sightings — by a farm family in Kansas in 1971, police officers in Illinois in 2000, and more — that it says still defy explanation.
All will be familiar to the U.F.O. crowd, and the program adds no new information or credibility to them, especially since the re-enactments have a silly 1930s look regardless of when the sightings occurred. And the “experts” — authors, self-described U.F.O. investigators — are shot in heavy shadow reminiscent of found-footage horror movies in which someone shines a flashlight on his own face in a dark room.
So many alien/UFO programs on TV...
It does appear we are being "programmed" to accept an alien agenda, especially one of ancient aliens as our creators and benefactors.
But is it fact or propaganda ?
The impossibility of intelligent life else where in the universe is very improbable. The likelihood of them visiting our little corner of the universe for our puny resources is very very small. Unless interstellar travel becomes so commonplace that the average alien can explore where ever they want.
the power to buy a craft and power it up just like we do a car and just as cheap. That type of power within the reach of a large population makes an accidental visit almost inevitable. It would also mean that any one of them visiting us could wipe us out on a whim.
Probably not going to watch those shows. But the new Cosmos show with Niel De Grasse Tyson starts either this weekend or next. I suspect they will cover aliens in an episode.
It should be interesting.
The festival will also include a sneak peek of the first episode of "Cosmos: A Spacetime Odyssey," the upcoming Fox television series that "celebrates the scientific perspective and the importance of science, technology, engineering, and math education." A sequel to Carl Sagan's "Cosmos: A Personal Voyage," "Spacetime Odyssey" premieres in March and will be hosted by It is a follow-up to Carl Sagan's "Cosmos: A Personal Voyage" and will be hosted by Neil deGrasse Tyson. www.latimes.com... 2ujYSwhjf
