They have been running ads on the science channel for a new series titled "Close Encounters" to be documentary style reenactments of claimed UFO sightings. I think stuff like this would be better placed on the SyFy channel.

i also think so. UFOs aren't a scientific topic. there are Maybe just some unknown meteorological phenomenons waiting to be discovered...
sadly this topic is beeing handled very unserious and childish.

Yes, terrible show.

Bob, Through The Wormhole is back.

Through The Wormhole Season 5, missed one episode.


Through the Wormhole is an American science documentary television series narrated and hosted by American actor Morgan Freeman. It began airing on Science in the United States on 9 June 2010.

Thank Lynn, I always record Through the wormhole in case I miss it. Best science programming for the interested non-scientist.
