I Watch "History Channel"

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 1,283 People

    Well, I used to, when it was actually about

    history. Now, it's just some really silly crap that has nothing to do with history. This goes for the Discovery Channel too.

    Not Much History Anymore

    I used to watch it a lot more often when the shows had something to do with history. It seems like they've made a switch to more reality type shows and less things that are about history :(

    Facinating

    It is so facinating! Whenever I turn to it the history of sex is always on, I've seen that one like 3 times.

    Alot Of Good Shows

    Most of the programs I watch on this channel are either paranormal or biblical documentaries. But that sums up most of the programming right there lol. When it comes to world war 2 stuff and 'ice road trucker' reality-type shows i lose interest though. It's a great channel...

    Great Channel For A History Major

    Today I watched the history channel; an interesting piece on Nazi war criminals and their escape from Germany . Every time I watch this channel, I feel that I get better insight on a particular event in history; plus I feel smarter too.

    Love The Stuff!

    I love History channel I minored in history in college and love anything to do with the past.  I'm not as keen on the new stuff such as ax men, swamp people, and such.  Those are more reality shows to me.  I do like the Pawn Stars though because they always get in to the...

    Yesss!! But the most surprising thing I found

    out was, while I was at school, I mentioned the show "Ancient Aliens" and one of my classmates looked at me and said "You watch that?" I said "yeah" and apparently everyone in my class watches the history channel! We're all nerds...haha :D

    American Pickers is my favorite!

    I love seeing Mike and Frank pick through people's stuff, and I love all the history involved in all the "stuff" they collect. I especially love the old signage and advertising.

    Pawn Stars. The "old man" is my favorite.

    He is always throwing blunt shade at Rick, Cory, and Chumlee. He is spicy and does not give into your bullshit bargains.

    Where Are All The 'ancient Aliens' Fans?

    This show is long overdue!   I was always infuriated when taught the ancient builders did not have the wheel or the pulley!   Come on, that is the mostabsurd idea I have ever heard!   How can academia present such a concept?   What say you?
