Entertainment is the name of the game, and if the History Channel's wildly entertaining but 70% fictional 'Project Blue Book' drama series was
prepping us for its documentary series 'Unidentified' (itself not that intrinsically different from PBB in style and construction, ultra-Woo dramatic
arcs aside), then we are indeed being thoroughly entertained. Let's not forget that Fishburne's 'Rendlesham' TV drama is also on its way, as well as
the 'Capel Green' film, books etc.
And I certainly don't begrudge the entertainment factor; it can be HUGELY diverting, despite the obvious BS. I've seen people sniping at PBB for its
shameless fictionalisations, but isn't that missing the point? It's just 'The X-Files' meets 'Project UFO' meets 'The Invaders' - and if the
alternative was watching Hynek driving from location to location from 1952-1969, taking notes and puffing on his pipe without action/suspense or Men
In Black shenanigans, the viewers - including myself - would have switched off in droves.
But forget Disclosure. The D-word has worn itself out anyway; pop back 10-15 years on ATS, and you'll see threads promising disclosure every other
month - a never-ending cycle continuing to the present day and forever beyond. Perhaps the rather blank, uninterested look on Trump's face when asked
about UFOs a few days ago, says it all.
Overall, I don't get the feeling Tom Delonge was initially "chosen". Like the UK's Reg Presley (from the band The Troggs) but on a far, FAR grander
scale, he simply felt like indulging his personal peculiar hobby, and found a bunch of ex-military goons and cobwebbed old dodgy has-beens from
ufology's past who were more than willing to indulge HIM for a quick buck.
There's more chance of my Siamese cat offering disclosure.
