The new series is terrific. I'm not sure if the wild west counts as ancient and so if this is a trend I can imagine Roswell surfacing at some point and then we're down the rabbit hole of a news embargo, Eisenhower's disastrous technology for genetics treaty and pretty soon it's living breathing abduction case studies. Probably news will overtake the series. For once.
I learned that Walt Whitman and Ralph Waldo Emerson had interesting ideas about E.T. for their times in this episode.
