The videos, and some photos, of this DVD are 'analyzed' or 'probed' by a supposed footage analyst who is shockingly consistently embarrassing:

THE Sweden UFO

One of the most striking UFO videos, this was tricky. Was it a glowing blimp? It suspiciously just floated along. No, it was a small boat, and you are looking at the water. That explains the narrow longer end and blinking light. You can almost see the horizon. Maybe the prankster gangster who filmed it or sold it put the brightness up to make the floating object 'glow.'


Helicopter searchlight. That's why you see cars through it. As you can see, it's filmed from the air. That 'probe' that has jumped as far away from the 'UFO' as the analyst's logic and sight has, is probably the back of vehicle, maybe a motor bike. It has a red tinge.


This is the lowest form of name-calling. Calling everything a probe. A satellite. Or Venus - which is the first thought of the video with lightning, and is not pulsating but is atmospheric effect everyone sees when the star is low.


Already debunked as landed helicopters I think.


This really is as lame as the moon conspiracy irrationality. But I can't figure what part of the spacecraft - err, human spacecraft - it is. This starts as video where you can see the sun and horizon briefly before it's conveniently kept out of view, as if a camera was being set up.


Moon with Earth. Very tricky. Took a long time. And shows how easily fooled you can be even when you are essentially skeptical.


This here defines perfectly the logic of this whole program, and the narrator who also doesn't seem to mind being mindless. That famous frame of the nighttime UFO which is accompanied by the estimate of unearthly speed - of the nervous guy's hand-held cam in a shaky plane.


Now the creme-de-la-alien. Dr. Roger Leir always creeps me out, as if I can't trust him, and I cannot solve this implant junk as easily as cattle has been. But first, it's foreign matter - from earth, maybe from a fall or hitting something. How to explain the non-earth composition? How many fragments of meteorites there must be lying around. How would a piece of meteorite serve any function? No circuitry, nothing. So that alone almost proves it is delusion. It has not been cross-referenced with biological experts. Just the scientific analysis data. So this Leir guy takes it on his own that these are alien, with no second or real opinion. Just him. No one else. Plus it could be faked. Conclusion: Crackpot.


This doesn't leave much, but those with actual experience who talk. And the few good photos we have all seen before. Yep, there is not one video in this shameful mess, let alone that is newer. Lazaar is always compelling and fantastically believable, yet again alone. Dr. Leir's talking of the piece of the alien craft that crashed at Roswell could finally seem a valid input too, if it could be trusted.
