May the FARCE be with you
Aliens exist? Maybe...maybe not????
I keep wondering what the world was like back in the century of the 1400's in the time when Christopher Columbus wanted to sail across the vast oceans and find a new world. The majority of the worlds' people believed that the world had to be flat and to sail past the sun's horizon a ship would fall off of the end of the world. More recently in the early 1900's songs were sung about reaching for the moon and who can forget that fateful day on July 20th, 1969, when the entire world was literally glued to their black and white television sets to watch that historical moment when American Astronauts Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin landed their spacecraft Apollo 11 on the moon's surface. The following day July 21st, 1969, Neil Armstrong took those first steps on the moon's surface and all the world once again watched in awe.
So although the 1960's were the most amazing technical and scientific time to be alive, there were smut papers and science-fiction movies telling us that aliens were real and they were here on earth already in many forms and disguises to blend in with the general population.
This TV series, Project Blue Book is an attempt to provide its viewers some insight into the early days in the mid 1940's and beyond when the U.S. Intelligence and U.S. Airforce were engaged in gathering intel on unidentified flying objects (UFO's), space aliens, real or imagined. Most rational people believed aliens did not exist and the wild stories were all hoaxes, but go back in time in the 1400's when the world was considered to be flat, or in the 1900's when no one believed a man would ever land on the moon, but here we are.
I was taught to believe in Christmas and Santa Claus and I am a better man for it, as are my own children. I for one will be advising my (now) adult children to watch this mysterious TV series Project Blue Book which most likely has been taking great liberties in the factual events of the U.S. Intelligence and U.S. Airforce events, but it makes for great stories and isn't that the main reason we watch television? To be entertained? I look forward to more episodes of Project Blue Book which has captured my imagination.
I give the series a solid 8 out of 10 rating.
