A&E always has something for everyone. They changed the landscape of television by turning the reality show on its head. Instead of losers trying to win a prize by acting like idiots, the cameras of A&E’s shows take us in to the often bizarre and hyper-real worlds of pawn shops, ice road truckers and pest control businesses. The team has put together some nice sets to help fill some gaps in the collection of someone on your shopping list. It’s time to load up on some of these collectible sets before someone ends up with coal in their stocking.
Duck Dynasty Seasons 4-6 Collection
It’s that time of the year again to dust off the old hunting rifle and shake out the camouflage suits, because Duck Commander is back in action. Duck Dynasty comes to Blu-ray for seasons 4-6. This new release brings the show back to the backwoods charm that gained my appreciation from the start. Yes, I still have a hard time calling this a reality series, since just about every episode and sequence seems more scripted than most hour-long dramas, but the characters are so likeable and goofy that a lot can be forgiven.
But getting to the heart of the show, what makes this show work is how well this family seems to pull together for good times and bad. Sure, people can hate on the show because people just have a problem with the Robertsons and their beliefs, but what you can’t take from them is that they genuinely care for one another. In the last episode of the season Jase’s daughter is about to go in for surgery, and the family rallies together to have a party in support of the little girl. This was the episode that not only seemed to be the most genuine, but it actually seemed to capture what makes reality television so fascinating at times. To glimpse into the lives of others while we can sit in the comfort of our homes as we watch the drama or silly antics unfold where we can connect or simply see things we can’t imagine happening with our families is the appeal of reality television.
Ancient Aliens Seasons 1-6
“Millions of people around the world believe we have been visited in the past by extraterrestrial beings. What if it were true? Did ancient aliens really help to shape our history? And if so, what if there were clues left behind, something hiding in plain sight? What if we could find that evidence?”
Ever since Eric von Daniken released his speculative book and its subsequent 1970 film Chariots of the Gods, there has been an entire field of study created around something commonly called Ancient Astronaut Theory, the idea is that extraterrestrials have visited many of our ancient civilizations. The theory continues that these visitors had a hand in shaping our development, whether it be through technology or even manipulation of our very DNA. These believers point to a world of evidence to support their claims. There are tons of images from earlier civilizations that could certainly be interpreted as depicting modern devices, concepts, or even spacemen. There is plenty of speculation that some of the knowledge and accomplishments of these peoples could not have been possible without some outside interference. There are even those who believe that aliens best explain our religious beliefs and that God himself was/is an extraterrestrial being. Whatever your own beliefs on the subject, there are certainly some fascinating points to be made. There is no question that the speculations and observations bring up some interesting queries that deserve our attention. This series attempts to document much of this evidence and the beliefs these findings have inspired.
