Ancient Aliens: Season 9 (2016/History Channel/Lionsgate DVD)

Picture: B Sound: B Extras: D Episodes: B

The thought provoking History Channel series Ancient Aliens continues on DVD with Season 9 (2016) collected together in this collection that is ideal for binge watching. I believe in life outside of our planet, so the show continues to catch my interest even if some of the theories are a bit far fetched. Who hasn't wondered about the mysteries of the Egyptians and mummies or if everyone around us are exactly human? (even if they appear to be) Or if there is indeed a master plan for our race that we are unaware of? Produced by post production legend Ken Burns, the show continues to make us think outside of the box and entertain at simultaneously.

Episodes include Forbidden Caves, Mysteries of the Sphinx, Aliens Amongst Us, The Genius Factor, Secrets of the Mummies, Alien Resurrections, The Great Flood, Hidden Pyramids, The Vanishings, and The Alien Agenda.

Presented in standard definition with an anamorphically enhanced 1.78:1 full frame aspect ratio and a lossless English 2.0 Dolby Digital Stereo audio mix that sounds fine for the format, the show looks comparable to its original network broadcastm though not in HD here. While a Blu-ray edition would be preferred, for what it is the show looks fine here on DVD.

No extras.

I love learning and theorizing about extraterrestrials so I find Ancient Aliens to be a great and educational watch too.
