OK I am officially tired of this show. Its ridiculous, and I am having a hard time believing that I am wasting my time on this crap. Look, as if the drone episode wasnt bad enough, now we get this?!? UFO Dogfights!? "Footage never before seen in the United States........OF THIS MADE FOR TV MOVIE!!!!!!"

excuse me?!?! I really dont even know where to go from here. We have this golden opporunity and its being COMPLETELY WASTED.

Why are they not analyzing some of the greatest UFO footage? Why are they not investigating some real prominent cases? Why are they only talking to like 4 witnesses an entire hour long episode then doing lame reinactments that prove nothing?

This show is lame, this show is bunk, this show is no longer being watched by me unless someone can show me good work that they have done. Nice try HC.....this show will be off the air in 6 months.

I do not understand the hate for this show on this message board.

This show is not made for people that post on an alien/ufo website.

This show is made for people with a casual interest in the subject.

I think as a community we would be excited about a show like this because it gets more people interested and more exposure in the mainstream.

What did everyone honestly expect from this show? An interview with an alien? Plus that beam footage from last week was amazing. I haven't watched tonights yet though but I'm sure it will be interesting.

There is an existing thread on this evening's episode, if you'd like to add your comments there.
www.abovetopsecret.com...'

I think they're making progress. This week it was only 2 cases, with a lot of detail. That's better in my view than the 'vortexes' episode where they tried to cover the whole globe in an hour.

They're learning. Hopefully they'll keep getting better

Or maybe the HC will hire some of us

watch any other documentary on UFO's...watch HC's UFO files....10 times better. If you are not interested in UFO's then you are NOT going to watch UFO hunters. Maybe you work for them, or have some sort of reason other than casual interest in defending them, but this show is weak, and they have created at least one show on something that has been debunked on this site.

So to answer your question...People on this site Deny Ignorance, therefore, they are going to question UFO hunters. Its nothing more than money in the execs pockets, while the consumer gets screwed. Look into the subject and you will realize that this show is nothing more than a cheap ploy to supply mediocre proof...and get a quick buck. Give me quality then we can talk.

They are getting better? They are learning? Look at the people on the show! Does an editor for UFO magazine really have to learn about providing evidence and quality to the public? Or does it make more sense to say that he is getting paid to do what the network tells him to?

They are not getting better, and its been a monumental dissapointment.

" We have this golden opporunity and its being COMPLETELY WASTED. "

Wasted to you maybe, but to the folks with an agenda....

You know, ................the folks who, control the horizontal, and the vertical, and the sharpness, and the brightness, etc. I'm sure your recall that intro from the outer limits. That's one of the few times, the truth came off the screen in everyones living room, but was disguised as something else!

Never get your hopes up for truth off the tv set, it is a rare event.

Good luck with your quest for the truth.

You are right....maybe I was being too ambitious with my hope of something new..or something that would provide some good evidence...you are so right though, thank you for that post.

I don't work for them and I'm not so much as defending them as I am wondering what people honestly expected from a History Channel UFO show. Even the UFO Files, which I agree are better, don't really have any ground breaking news on them.

Now, admittedly tonights episode was probably the weakest of all of them, I still think that the more UFO shows on TV the better it is.

Exactly! The subject needs more attention. People treat it too much like some kind of joke. If there were more UFO shows, then people might pay more attention and take the subject seriously instead of being ignorant and just not caring.

I think the show is super hokey. However, I agree with the PP who basically said that it is helping bring the topic back up to the surface. IMO, it is not as taboo for one to claim to see a UFO. With that comes two things (pro and con)...pro, more people are looking up and talking about it, comfortably. Con, more people are seeking their 15min of fame by fabricating stories.

Either way. The topic of UFOs is very "in" right now....rather then being on the fringe like it was when I was growing up.

I totally agree that the more UFO shows there are on TV the better, but the quality of this, after all the hype, is so dissapointing. They have all the resources but they really arent doing the subject any justice.

Again, if I were not into the subject and UFO Hunters was the first show I ever watched on UFO's I would either A) Be impressed by disinformation (the drone episode) or B) be bored out of my mind and think that they are making something out of nothing (every other episode, which lacks anything concrete)

Anyone with a basic understanding of scientific methods will see this show as complete bunk. This then serves no purpose other than to alienate any serious researchers from supporting their involvement with anything.

Sorry, but that's the way I see it.

(btw - last night was the first episode I missed. Sounds like a made the right choice lol)

i am new to researching ufo's "online and tv" . i found the show annoying because they start off in there hunting on what seems like a great place. then they take their investigation way off course waist some time add a few commercials and get back to where they started and ask new questions that they should have started with. its just as bad as any other show that would hunt for bigfoot at night. its purely entertainment like ghost hunters. before every commercial they show a clip of whats to come after the break with everyone shocked at a discovery and all you see is all their faces in total awe. after the commercial you see it all and are wondering what the hell is so amazing about dust moving across the ultraviolet light. Or for this show they wined up standing around talking about how they solved nothing and came up with nothing new and how good they did since its brought us closer to an understanding.
like i said im new at this and i don't know if these guys are famouse for there research but if they aint i think some fellas from here might be better suited for the job. thats to say they want a real hunt to take place. you would need a skeptic in there to keep those guys looking to perfect the hunt for solid proof.
if you love the show don't take any of this personal because everyones a critic. some just expect more then to be simply entertained. Personally i'd watch independence day if i wanted to be entertained by aliens.

You were saying that you missed last nights episode and I was just letting you know what I thought about it. Basically yeah, you should be happy that you missed it.

I'll add my 2 cents about the show as well.....


BORING


What a waste of time. This is the lamest UFO stuff I have ever seen on TV.

Wow.

I agree the topic needs more MSM attention but the show completely blows. It is BAD television and it makes UFO researchers seem more like UFO enthusiasts at one of those silly conventions. Big difference when you are trying to get the world to believe and take it seriously. Overall it came off as "The Hardy Boys and the UFO Caper".

Yeah in last nights episode I failed to see the importance of them flying those airplanes. It seemed like a waste of funds. Maybe they should use their money more wisely.

The only reason I watch the show is becuase of the commercial for it when the tall guy says ''ITS A FREAKIN DISK.'' Its just so funny.
