* YouKeepUsingThatWord: The show frequently misuses the word UFO (Unidentified ''Flying'' Object), such as talking about underwater [=UFOs=]. An underwater unidentified object would be a UAO (Unidentified Aquatic Object).

** If you are a secular or non-religious literalist/non-fundamentalist persuasion, please disregard the last 15 minutes or so of this otherwise well-done documentary, since the presenter suddenly starts stating that TheGreatFlood really happened.

* SequelEscalation: The first couple of seasons weren't too bad. Angels were aliens, the Nazis studied alien technology, the Egyptians and the Aztecs were visited by aliens, the Bermuda Triangle is aliens; in short, nothing that numerous other programs hadn't suggested before. Then the later seasons really got carried away. The first episode of season three being titled "Aliens and the Old West" is your first clue that things are about to go downhill.

-->'''Tsoukalos:''' These statues look like some type of a being wearing an astronaut suit, and in my opinion, that means that we were visited by some type of extraterrestrials.
