Alien proof search tedious, but not bad for kids.

I like it

It is a good show if you like aliens and UFO's. There is nothing wrong with it except for occasional swearing that is bleeped out.

Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say: (2):
Kids say: Not yet rated

Since most of the incidents happened long ago, the team is hunting in areas that have already been examined many times for evidence that, if it ever did exist, is certainly unlikely to be there now. Not surprisingly, their searches generally tend to be in vain -- and there's little excitement to be found in watching these men sift through sand on a beach that may have once been the site of a UFO encounter. The re-creations are more interesting, but the same images are sometimes shown over and over again, making the episodes seem repetitive.

Plus, the team is anything but unbiased. Birnes is the publisher of UFO Magazine, and Uskert claims to have personally seen a mysterious flying object. So even when their studies are inconclusive, they're unwilling to consider that an incident may not have been the real deal. These guys are true believers, certain that the truth is out there whether they're able to prove it or not. People who agree may enjoy their show, but others may find it less than convincing.

Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
