science fiction so it's gotta be trueRating: 2 likes, 2 dislikes

Love this show, much like the X-Files which i know to be based on fact because I am one of those underground deciders that made a deal with the aliens to land their space ships in the Antarctic and import that black serum, that we inject into politicians so they will do our bidding. How do you think our banks got so much federal money and why our ( I mean our groups) are doing so well and the general pubic so poorly. Just look at the US President, every time we let him talk on TV his skin turns really dark. ( He did not turn so well but we may decide to keep him as the dumb US public likes him). Read more

Gosh, I thought this was realRating: 1 likes, 7 dislikes

If the other reviewers are correct then I can't in good faith watch this show. It's not based in science. I thought if it was on TV then it had to be real and factual. Maybe I'll just watch Sons of Guns, or River Monsters. You can't get any more real than that. Read more
