I used to joke that the History Channel should have been called the Hitler Channel because all they showed were WWII documentaries.

Now I yearn for those days. It's all bullshit on Nostradamus and the Bible now. How does that remotely constitute "history"? I can see maybe one show on them but it's all the god damned time!

The final straw was last night. I was watching some dumb show on "The Seven Seals of the Apocalypse" and the narrator let this nugget fall:

I agree with you man.

Those apocalyptic shows are getting old fast.

12:00 - Knights the Templar Documentary
1:00 - Nostradamus
2:00 - More Nostradumas
3:00 - Illuminati
4:00 - Documentary about Meggido

etc...

At least it's not as bad as Teletoon when Scooby Doo or some variant, like "What's new Scooby Doo?" or "Scooby Doo's All Star Laff-alympics" was 90% of its shows.

But don't they still show movies like "Where Eagles Dare" every two weeks?

When I read the title I was going to make this same statement

Quote:

I don't even bother with the channel anymore. What gets me more than the bible/nostradomus stuff is the tv shows that have almost nothing to do with history. Heres the list of shows according to their website.

Ancient Discoveries
Clash of the Gods
Gangland
How the Earth Was Made
Ice Road Truckers
Lock N' Load with R. Lee Ermey
Modern Marvels
MonsterQuest
MysteryQuest
Nostradamus Effect
Pawn Stars
UFO Hunters
The Universe
WWII in HD

How many of those sound like good historical programming?

Hey Modern Marvels usually showcases a lot of great archive footage... though the rest listed are pretty ridiculous.

Here's how Pawn Stars happened:
A bunch of execs are sitting around their board room table. Somebody says "Hey, reality TV is hot, we gotta get on this!" "Well, shit, all of history actually happened, how do we do this?" "Uh, a show about old stuff?" "OK, duh, that's what all our shows are!" "I know, people buying and selling old stuff!" "Duh, PBS beat us with antiques roadshow" "I know, a pawn shop" "Brilliant Johnson, free hookers for everybody tonight!"

WWII in HD sounds historical.

However I'm pretty much over the History Channel because they refuse to admit Rome: Engineering an Empire is something they ever aired. It won an Emmy, people!

The Mayans had about the same level of technology as ancient Mesopotamia and Nostradamus' predictions are so vague that you could conceivably link them to anything (although nobody has done this before it happened.

Saw the "History in HD" program was on so I checked it out. Today's episode is about the making of the movie Valkyrie.. Geh.

Edit: now there is a show called "Nazi Prophecies."

Modern Marvels and How the Earth Was Made are the only real good shows on the History Channel. Gangland is good but it should be on fucking A&E not History. You know what show I miss? History's Mysteries. I loved that show.

Oh, Cities of the Underworld is pretty good. That's historical.

There's so much Nostradamus shit on right now because of the 2012 frenzy with the movie coming out and everything. It'll die down in a month or so. History does so many movie tie-ins it's kind of insulting. I really mainly watch Discovery Channel. Dirty Jobs, Mythbusters, Time Warp ftw.

I'd prefer a show of modern marvel facts that they have before the commercial break rather than an actual modern marvel show.
