    I've seen this guy a few times and he really comes off as an idiot first class. Not a bad person just an idiot, the kind of person that when he smiles and puts up both hands he only has seven fingers and even fewer teeth to work with. Maybe it's just me but television is as close as I'd like to come to that nut bag.

    He's one part Popeye one part demolition man, three parts stupid. Not sure what he has to do with History but he's got a tv show, he's famous.

    **** the history channel and the reality crap they put out nowadays. Cheap way to make tv. They should rename the channel to "the crappy quite unimportant persons reality tv shit channel".

    Discovery is also trying hard at sucking.

    Nat geographic and the bbc channels are the only worthile channels left it seems to check out for documentary's these days.

    However bad the swamper shows or other crap is on the history channel, those shows are better than all the Hitler shows or ancient aliens shows they run. I used to love the history channel, now I can hardly stand it.

    I'm with ya on the alien and bigfoot shows, but I can always watch something on Hitler, not sure why, maybe it's that mustach he ruined for the rest of us.

    Ancient Aliens is kinda cool.

    The never ending WW2 docs indeed got really old really fast. I used to think of it as the Black and White channel.

    "So-called reality crap".

    They need to get better actors if they are going to script the damn shows.


    Have you seen this crap-show?

    Gotta differ with you on this one. The whole idea of ancient aliens is just about the dumbest idea the world has ever come up with. Bad tv, bad science, bad in general, just my take. They always underestimate what people on earth from the past were capable of doing. They couldn't have been that smart, must have been space people what helped them, yeah right, sure that's got to be it. I got some swamp land for sale, a great investment, any takers?

    I don't find the idea impossible, so it's entertaining.

    I'm much more likely to find credibility in that show then in the massive amount of shows I see on tv on Sundays.

    I don't find much credibility in either one, they all come under the heading "The Fantasy Fiction Tower of Power Hour" BTW love that song. If the space ships do stop by and they are not fattening us up for their cook book, maybe they can take those Sunday guys with them and we can all get some sleep for a change.

    Tired of rednecks with TV shows. Sorry if that's offensive, but I can walk out the door and see idiots like that all day. Big deal.

    Mmm, I sense the term Redneck is not being used in a flattering or friendly manner there. :cool:

    I like that Mountain Man show. Eustace Conway is pretty awesome. I'd love to spend some time at Turtle Island.

    It's nice to see there are still 'Guys' in a world that's been neutered.

    I wouldn't confuse slow talking and less of what you would call "civilized" with stupid or idiot.


    There's some uneducated geniuses down there and I doubt most of us would survive for long doing what these guys do. I have respect and figure most of what is filmed is just showing off for the cameras or bits and pieces edited in or out to make the show what the producers want it to be.
