Well, this episode didn't come on until 10pm Pacific for me on Time Warner Cable.
I actually managed to somehow stay awake until the last commercial break, so I missed about the last 15 minutes.
I'm sorry to have to dis a show we were all so excited about, but I completely agree with the posts here, it was a complete let down.
I'm really not sure how you could just walk on by this 'signal' coming from the ground, and not at least do some remote sensing. There is
technology available today that can tell you what's under there, heck magnetic resonance imaging could do the trick. They make this sort of
equipment in (comparitively) inexpensive packages, the history channel could surely afford to rent one, if not buy. In fact, I'm almost positive
I've seen such equipment used on History Channel shows before, it's surprising to me (having worked in the Entertainment Industry) that A&E (owners
of History Channel) didn't purchase such instruments the first time they were needed for an investigation of this nature. They could be utilized
over and over again after that for free. That's just good business sense.
The show to me came off like they were focused on the Vortex issue alone, and merely included Bine Bush as an example of such a possible vortex.
To be honest with you, this was my biggest problem with the show, the use of the word 'vortex'. It really bugs me when people who are supposed to
be doing investigatory research use words completely incorrectly. You cannot call a region a 'vortex', because 'vortex' is already a descriptive
word for a region (of air, space, water, etc.) that is caused to move in a 'spiral' pattern. Since the term 'vortex' actually describes a
specific type of an area (like a tornado, an area of air that is moving in a spiral pattern, or a water spout on the ocean, even a whirlpool, etc.)
the term cannot be used as a generalized term for a region.
To me this is just basic, and once I understood what they meant by the term, the term itself bothered me throughout the rest of the show.
I also completely agree that the 'standards' for a 'vortex' were completely arbitrary, and really all they did was make for a list of interesting
places with anamolies. None of these anamolies seemed to be connected in any way. For example, the Pine Bush anamoly was giving off magnetic field
changes, but they tested Stone Henge for magnetic field changes and found none. So were clearly talking about two different anamolies here, yet they
proceeded to include them both in this show, even though they'd proved in their research (before the show was aired) that the two were not
At any rate, I'll stop rambling now, but I had a lot of problems with this show, and am pretty disappointed. It was nice to see Bruce Maccabee
analysing images though. And it did seem that SOMETHING was going on at Stonehenge, but these guys failed to find any measurable force to guage.
p.s. totally agreed that the 'tesla light bulb thingie' was complete BS. Everyone knows that electricity in sufficient quantities will jump a gap
to find a negative release terminal. It's seen in lightning, and in the modern capacitor. What a joke of an experiment!
