There are some valid criticism of it[ul][li] All WWII All The Time-- not so true any more, which is a shame because I love WWII documentaries. No where near enough original programs–[/li]True. A lot of there regular programing is just old network news stuff and English docs reformated and presented as new. Watching how major events were reported at the time that they were happening is interesting. The problem I have with this is the “presented as new” part. [li]There own documentaries are generally shallow and pretty much suck.–[/li]It is shame that The History Channel, going on past experience, will never produce something like Ken Burn’s The Civil War or Shoah. Still, I’m gland there is a place to watch No Surrender: German and Japanese Kamikazes (as shallow and uninnovative as it may be.) [/ul]
Yes, all valid criticisms. But they’ve got Mail Call, R. Lee Ermey really floats my boat (yes, I am strange); History’s Mysteries-- a trivia lovers treasure trove and Modern Marvels.
I love The History Channel. What do you think of it?
