Ah, Ancient Aliens one of my guilty pleasures. I especially like the way that the narrator always says things like "Could Aliens..." or "If Aliens had...," I always interpret it as a kind of backhanded disclaimer. Those lines and the Whale Wars opening "warning" where they say that they views of the show are not the views of the producers are such great honesty in television--"Look, folks we don't believe this shtuff, we just hope you find it as entertainingly bad as we do."
One of my guilty pleasures too - but my favorite (funny) aspect is the narrator always starts every line with, "Ancient astronaut theorists believe..."
Yeah, they might as well start it with "Some cranks in their parents' basements believe..."
"that life down here began out there." Imagine it in Patrick Macnee's voice...
