{ Boy do I have a show for you.... }

You know I'm always telling you about a book or movie or TV show that I have enjoyed and hoping to pass it on to my readers.

Well do I have a new some new ones, and these I think will be enjoyed not just by us women, but especially our husbands too...that is if you're into shows that delve into mysteries and trying to decipher how things come about on our planet, and what if's and maybes . My kids have actually sat down with us and watched a few and enjoyed it too.

The first one is called "Ancient Aliens", and if you haven't yet watched it, then you are truly missing out on a very interesting, informational and also educational show.

I came across it a few days ago while browsing through my TV channels, I wanted to find something to watch but wasn't really in the mood for the usual stuff, and you know when you're wanting a good show that will catch your attention but is not filled with ridiculous plot points or people doing stupid things all in the name of "reality shows"??

I'm glad I found this one. It's on the History Channel and you can find out more about it here.

If ancient aliens visited Earth, what was their mission, and is there evidence that points to when they will return? Ancient Sumerian tablets describe an alien race, known as the Anunnaki, who came to Earth to mine for gold. Egyptian hieroglyphs depict hybrid creatures that were part man, part animal. Mysterious crop circles and unexplainable crystal skulls are thought to contain messages that man has yet to decipher. Strange evidence may exist in multiple cultures throughout history suggesting that aliens came here to explore, excavate raw materials, experiment on human beings, and even for pure conquest.

You can also watch the episodes on YouTube, here is the first part if you want to take a peek and see if it's something that would interest you.

If that is not your cup of tea, then perhaps this next show will be.

Weird or What on the Discovery Channel is also new show hosted by William Shatner.

We want to believe there is a reason for everything. That everything that happens in our world, no matter how bizarre, no matter how baffling, can be explained. But sometimes things happen that seem to defy logic. This documentary series tries to use science to explain weird events that happened around the world.

Just the kind of show that my husband and I enjoy, we were glued to the TV.

Here's the first part of the first episode:

See for me I need a show that will hold my interest but also teach me something new and I feel like with both shows, it's doing exactly that.

In the past few days I have visited Egypt and got a closer look at the Pyramids, how they were built and how in the heck they were able to move such heavy rocks without the machinery that we have nowadays, and all while watching Ancient Aliens.

I've learned about the Bloop, do you know what it is? Well neither did I until watching Weird or What. The bloop is a powerful underwater sound that was heard several times in 1997 and never again, it has everyone baffled as to what or who could have made it.

What about the Tarahumara tribe in Mexico who are renowned for their long distance running ability? They run either barefoot or wearing their homemade sandals and have actually beat ultramarathoners during their races.

I promise you that you will find something in these shows that will leave you scratching your head or yearning for more information on the subject. I have found myself online researching the Voinovich Manuscript, listening to the Bloop and even looking for the Bolivian ruins of Puma Punku, just to see the intricate rock designs left behind.

So if you're looking for something new to watch, why not give these two a try and let me know what you think. If anything, you'll learn a thing or tow!
