What? No comments on the new "Project Blue Book?"

I recorded it and now watching. While some of it (very little) I like, most of it, bleck

It's on the History Channel. Guess I was expecting more of a documentary show.

On the plus side, it's got Littlefinger/Mayor Carcetti. In the negative column, it's a show on the History Channel about aliens. I haven't seen it yet so I'm keeping my mind open.

I suspect bleeck from just reading the pre-debut description. So I passed.

Nice to see I was right.

Even the 70s Project UFO (based on PBB) wasn't that good, but at least it was on the side of truth.* This one looks like it's on the side of the X-Files.


*or government disinformation! "Weather balloon", everything can be explained. Sure Scooby. right.

The only thing that tweaks my interest on this is wondering if this will encourage MeTV, Antenna TV, or one of the other rerun channels to pick up "Project U.F.O." from the late 70s that was about Project Blue Book.

I've seen a few posters for it with "Malarkey" printed in large letters. I couldn't tell if it was the actor's name or a plot summary.

It was bad, bad, bad. I wanted to like it, really I did. Acting was bad. The 2 ladies looked like some highschool production costume- and make-up-wise.

I keep getting ads for it on YouTube and it 100% looks like one of those very low budget government conspiracy TV series that were all the rage after the X-Files debuted in the 90's, but somehow brought to 2018.

Saw it. It's not bad, it's just fine. I'm not sure why they are even using Hynek's name, him being a real man who was really involved in Blue Book, if they are going to make everything else ostentatiously fictional.

I watched the first three minutes. That was enough.

I forgot this was even on. Sounds like that was a good thing.

I had it recorded and watched last night. I thought maybe it would be somewhat realistic but I guess reality isn't interesting enough. It looks like they are just X-Filing some of the reports and trying to build some sort of conspiracy. Too bad.
