When I grow up I want to be an Ancient Alien Theorist so I can sit around on my ass and dream up ways to give credit to every detail of human ingenuity and progress to alien technology.

"Forged in Fire" is entertaining.  Though the, "It will kill," has got to go.

Love that show. When he says it will kill I say to myself, yep. That show amazes me how fast some people can make a quality knife/sword. It sucks for the few that get cracks or just run out of time by decision making but some of the guys make some pretty cool blades. I also like how straight forward the judges are, no BS.

Same here. Reality TV is slowly killing cable.

And no learning on the Learning Channel, or no animals on Animal Planet, and very little science on the Science Channel.

I was so disappointed in that show. The most interesting character was Ray Liottas but overall it was a pretty bad miniseries

I cut the cord earlier this year. Couldn't see paying for hundreds of channels of crap when I only watched less than 10.  I used to like TLC.  Now it should be renamed The Loser Channel.  

The cable execs refuse to change their business model even though their subscribers are plummeting.  People are also fed up with crap reality shows like ice road truckers, but the industry still churns out this junk.

no need to watch Gilligan's Oak Island.
if they find anything significant, we'll know about it long before the editing for the season starts

Forgeries In Fire - Is the History Channels version of Chopped. A some guys with a small shop trying to create a knife on a limited time with a ammo box as a forge. Then the two winners get to go home to small, homemade gas fired forges trying to make a samurai sword in five days. To be tested by chopping through the engine block of a 1965 Rambler. "it will slice. It will dice. It will make cold cuts"

Pawn Starts - "My appraiser said your antique spoon made by Paul Revere passed down in your family for 5 generations is worth $10,000. I will give you $850. "
"How about $28,000?"
"$925 is as high as I can go Chubbie ate at McDonalds today and wrecked my 1951 Porsche at the drive thru and Dad's got hemorrhoid problems."
"Ok, I will take $900, I got to get money to pay for my daughter's dream wedding and holding on this old spoon and telling my daughter to pay for her own wedding she'll get the spoon when I die ain't going too far."

Ice Highway of Death- ok I get it, dangerous, ooooohhhh, scary ooooohhhh, ice popping oooooohhh, gear shifting. I don't need 50 episodes of the same thing to understand. I got it the first time.

Americans Picking your Pocket - I badgered Sam until he sold me this thing for $25. Clean it up and it's worth $875. Too bad Sam was selling stuff to get money for that kidney transplant.

Swamp People - Let's go fishing for alligators. Catch 'em watch 'em roll, shoot 'em. Drag 'em in 'da boat.

Ancient Aliens - See this rock? Aliens. Cars? Alien technology. That mountain over there? Secret Alien base protected by the new world order and the freemasons.

"Tactical Accountants".   Mid-season replacement, starts in January.  Remember you heard it here first.

I love the scripted meltdowns they showed in the previews.  Some dude gets pissed and starts punching out a window, and the camera crew just so happened to have a gopro inside the car pointed to the area he was punching.

Those people start off every fucking sentence by reminding us how tough you have to be to live there.

Do you have ANY idea how fucking hard it is to survive in Alaska when the bikini coffee shack isn't open and you have to settle for Starbucks? Or even worse, when that fucking Amelia bitch in Dutch Harbor won't let you order an avocado milkshake without buying a full meal?

I didn't think so.

I haven't had dish for years.
We can't even get cable here.
I look shit up on the interwebs and watch you boob or Netflix.
Fat Hos,the bald dummie and Chumly,  Two homoes a picking,  they all suck balls.
In a way I am a bit happy.  At least they aren't showing false propaganda and out right lies that they called history.  
Now they can all go suck a dick and so can most of the rest of that horse shit.

My dad has driven a semi for the last 30 years. My brothers and diesel mechanic. I've been around trucks my whole life. We can tell you that 75% of all the crap that happens on that show is completely made up and fake, or is some crazy negligence. Even stuff like saying they are hauling 50,000 pounds of freight and it's really not even close to that. Just stupid stuff that the average idiot wouldn't notice.









The show is and was in the beginning FAKE!

The other night I was saying to my wife "How is it we have so many channels and nothing worth watching?".  I still find a few things here and there but we watch more stuff on Netflix and Youtube, so I'm thinking our days of pay TV are numbered.

You should switch over to History 2, or H2, channel now Vice
Link Posted: 9/1/2015 11:16:13 PM EDT
I rarely watch the History channel anymore, pretty much saw the writing on the wall back in 2007 when the introduced Ice Road Truckers.  I figured it would tank in a season or two, but now that's the formula for all of their new shows.  Boy was I proven wrong.  

I do still watch H2 now and then and History if they have something besides reality TV fodder.

I think we are witnessing the death rattle of cable television.  More and more people all the time are getting sick of the crap and canceling it.  In 5 years or less cable will be in serious trouble.

I hope cable internet hangs on though!

Turn James Burke loose with an unlimited budget and restart Connections.
