There are pros and cons to everything. I guess that is obvious. The cons of the show, to me anyways, seem to outweigh the pros.
The reason I do not like the show is because it is done through television. Like you said, its corny, but the attitudes of the "investigators", and the way they portray it in general (camera angles, music, etc) just seems to be trivialize the whole movement. Not to mention, I am sure they are making a few bucks off the season.
That is just my gut reaction and perhaps I need to watch it some more to get a better idea.
There is something funny about television itself though. We, as humans/observers, most likely take anything portrayed on television as fiction. Even if they say, "based on a true story", subconsciously I feel its 'far away' in a sense, not in this universe or reality if you will. I hope that makes sense.
The pros would obviously be what you stated and proved in your OP. The only thing that worries me is: why would "they" allow this to be broad cast? Are "they" trying to get the general population used to the names of the REAL leaders of the world via conspiracy theory programs, so they can more easily have us submit?
I am going quite far with this but I think it is called for considering what this show 'brings to the table'.
Anyway. Thanks for the info.

Why would the elites even let a show like this air on t.v.? It's like they almost want people to know what they're doing or is it just reverse psychology?
