Ah I see the problem; when I put "Underworld History Channel" in the Youtube search engine I'm shown clips from Cities of the Underworld which actually is one of the shows on T"H"C that I rather like. I'd expect the case is the same on most video hosting sites.

  Well, still can't find the damn thing, although I did find this which I found extremely entertaining:

  And if you read the commentary area, yes that's me attempting to tactfully debate with some of the pro-vampire folks about why they're not really vampires.

get a life, hippy gothik-vampire wanna-be, you suck ass, not? blood.

I think they do best when they stick to "folksy" type histories. I saw one on the history of Halloween (in America, generally) that was pretty good.

Yep it's not like I hate everything on the "History" Channel, but the over preponderance of Nostradamus and Movie Tie-ins and similar shite grates after a while.

This is why I think they should subtly change their logo:



  Speaking of fake history, they ran a 2-hour long "historical documentary" about the underground war between werewolves and vampires around the time the second Underworld movie was coming out a few years ago. They interviewed some people who thought they were werewolves, and some people who thought they were vampires, and apparently these people who think they're werewolves and vampires think they've been waging some kind of pretend war with each other for centuries. So basically it was a documentary about insane people.



Oh yeah, I saw that. Basically a 2-hour commercial for the Underworld movie to get people psyched about the subject. All it did for me was make me wonder whether the people interviewed were serious or not. It didn't help that the "vampires" were your typical gothic euro-trash. Or that the werewolves looked like Neil Young on a bad day.

Oh incidentally I was watching an episode of Cities of the Underworld (I think, there were tunnels and caves in it) about Jerusalem.

In it they were talking about the sacking of the First Temple and kept referring to Zedekiah as the last king of Judea, not once but multiple times. ::)

I realize it's a popular history channel and the distinction is multifaceted but surely they could have at least used the correct historical name for the national entity.

Well, -I- know -I- can't think of the brave men and women who have made the ultimate sacrifice for our freedoms without thinking about the Loch Ness Monster.  :P  Go History Channel!

They did nothing all day to honor vets, their schedule today was all monsters and cave men.

Sadly twice, once before I headed out to the park to walk the dogs, and it was on again after I got back.

It was about a Russian Scientist who was very into Hybridization and he received a grant to breed Ape-Human Hybrids ostensibly to make super soldiers.

But apparently it was really all a big two fingered salute to Religion and its objections to Evolutionary theory.

I think THC just wanted to show Max, Mon Amour and couldn't secure the screening rights. They even used a scene from King Kong as evidence that Apes sometimes find Human women attractive. ::)
