Episode 1 – The Evidence

Egyptian megaliths that are said to show precision cutting work thought too advanced for the time and Jewish Zohar writings that are said to describe a “manna machine” similar to chlorella algae processing of today.
Episode 2 – The Visitors
The episode proposes that alien visitations have occurred around the globe, and cites as evidence, claims that the Dogon people were given galactic knowledge by a star god the Hopi and Zuni celebrations of Kachinas (or “gods from the sky”) that are symbolized with headdress that are said to resemble modern space helmets and that the Chinese Huangdi was a Han leader who came to Earth on a yellow dragon which is suggested to have been a metaphor for a spaceship.
Episode 3 – The Mission
This episode posits that extraterrestrials have a mission plan for Earth and mankind, and cites as evidence, Sumerian tablets that allegedly describe the Anunnaki as a race of creatures that came to Earth to mine gold, the purpose of cattle mutilations, the mile-long “band of holes” near Pisco, Peru.
Egyptian hieroglyphs that are said to depict hybrid creatures that are part man/part animal and Crystal skulls and crop circles that are said to contain messages from aliens.
Episode 4 – Closer Encounters

Episode 5 – The Return
This episode proposes that aliens have contacted man as recently as the 20th century, citing examples such as the Battle of Los Angeles and the Roswell UFO Incident.
It also looks at the modern SETI project and speculates what would happen if aliens answered back what protocols exist to determine who would speak on behalf of mankind, and how we would communicate.
Episode 6 – Chariots, Gods and Beyond
Millions of people accept the theory that intelligent life forms visited Earth thousands of years ago and were worshiped as gods by primitive man. Are monuments like Stonehenge and Easter Island the last remains of an ancient alien visitation?
From unexplainable super structures, to knowledge of the solar system, mathematics, and even the ability to make electricity, Ancient Aliens explores evidence of super-human influences on ancient man and embarks on an around-the-world search for answers. It’s an investigation into a theory some believe cannot be true, but many agree cannot be ignored.
This pilot episode presents the views of author Erich von Däniken who theorized that advanced beings from another world visited primitive humans, gave them the knowledge of the solar system, concepts of engineering and mathematics, and became the basis for their religions and cultures as evidenced by ancient monuments such as the Nazca Lines, the Pyramids of Giza and the Moai statues of Easter Island.
