I can hardly wait until 2013, so I don't have to watch all their crap about Nostradamus, Mother Shipley, and the Mayans.
The mysteriously free cable stopped when the local company went digital. I thought I was going to miss the History Channel, but in retrospect, they've stopped playing nearly everything interesting. Every now and then they play a new Modern Marvels, but they replay it about 20 times, and never mix it up with reruns of their classics. The Dogfight 360 show was actually very entertaining, especially since they mixed in interviews with the pilots, but one hour of new, interesting programming per week isn't much, and it's appeal is mostly the spectacle rather than information that orients the viewer to a historical context. The Universe
was ok, but mostly about visuals and not very detailed. Those few interesting programs they show kept getting shoved out of prime time in favor of the Nostradamus crap.
In the end, despite being a complete history and science nerd, I ended up missing Alton Brown's Good Eats
on the Food channel more than the History Channel.
I hope this program broke the trend, but did they touch on what sort of crap the History Channel will be showing in the year 2100?
