Review: Volume 2 of Season 12 of 'Ancient Aliens' delivers the goods

I will never ever get tired of saying Giorgio A. Tsoukalos. You know, the "aliens guy."

I will also never not post a review of the extremely popular Ancient Aliens without posting the gif below. I mean I'm not saying that it's aliens, but it's most definitely aliens.

How has this one guy been able to convert his 15 minutes of fame into a TV career that shows no sign of letting up anytime soon? Every time that I think that Ancient Aliens has reached its peak zenith, it comes back to life with even more preposterous episodes and I can't stop watching.

Like most of you, I started watching Ancient Aliens for the curiosity factor, but now like a train wreck, I can't turn away. Will aliens ever present themselves on the show? Will we ever storm Area 51? Will the government ever admit the truth about aliens? Will Giorgio A. Tsoukalos ever lose his glorious hair?

Well, some of those questions get answered in Ancient Aliens: Season 12, Volume 2 - or at least they attempt to answer them. And yes, Giorgio still has that hair. Maybe he is an alien?

The truth is that since the show's debut in 2010, Giorgio's hair has gone through various permutations, but his obsession with aliens has only grown. He's now a bonafide History Channel rock star and the cable network doesn't have any qualms in riding his conspiracy theories to the bank.

The funny thing is that they are continually finding new and interesting content to bring to their fans. Sure, some of the stuff seems to be a bit derivative from their earlier stuff, but for the most part, they bring new perspective and voices to the table.

Don't worry though, the star is still Giorgio A. Tsoukalos. Of course, as the series has grown, his involvement has increased. While he still pops up in nearly every episode, he's out in the field more than ever, insuring that his popularity will only continue to skyrocket.

It's quite possible that Giorgio could single-handedly carry this show for another 10 seasons. And who knows? By then, the aliens might return and Giorgio will get to experience his life's greatest desire, to mingle with these Ancient Aliens.

Ancient Aliens: Season 12, Volume 2 is now available on DVD.
