* SnarkBait: See {{Narm}}. It even got its own version of the ''Series/MysteryScienceTheater3000'' treatment from ''Viceland'', called ''Traveling The Stars'', in which rapper Action Bronson snarks at the show with his friends and acquaintances, while completely stoned out of their gourds on weed.

** Which is not to say that Europeans get off scott free. People like Wernher von Braun and UsefulNotes/AlbertEinstein are assumed to have come up with their groundbreaking ideas because aliens were implanting them in their heads. Because there's no way that the V2 Rocket or General Relativity were thunk up by us humans.

** He was asked on Reddit how he came up with his hairstyle. He claimed he didn't purposely design it that way, it just sort of naturally evolved over time.

** An episode done after 2012 had one person mention how nothing happened, and then wonder if something did happen, we just missed it.

** Oddly enough, as can be seen in [[https://youtu.be/HnP-WZ4EUtY this]] featurette included with the DVD release of {{Stargate}}, he was once capable of maintaining a sane hairstyle. [[WildMassGuessing One wonders]] if he's just [[{{Troll}} milking it]] at this point.

* MemeticHair: The only reason Mr. Tsoukalos sticks out and gets made fun of the most is because of his hair. It's just so big, messy, and crazy. It really empathizes his [[InsaneTrollLogic style of logic (or lack there of)]].

* UnfortunateImplications: When one strips away the various pieces of ''flat-out wrong'' information produced on the show, it can fall into this: a great deal of the "alien" artifacts or human sites built "with alien assistance" are from pre-Columbian civilizations or sub-Saharan Africa, the implication being that these civilizations were [[http://drmsh.com/2014/07/05/the-racism-of-the-ancient-astronaut-theory/ too backward or stupid to create such impressive structures.]] For instance, the show once claimed that Puma Punku, a fifth century Aymara site in the Bolivian Andes, was "the only site created directly by extra-terrestrials". At the same time as Puma Punku was constructed, the Romans were building equally-if-not-more advanced stone structures...but ''of course'' those stupid Amerindians couldn't build anything white people could, they ''must'' have been helped by aliens![[note]]On the other hand, the show erroneously claimed Puma Punku was a couple of thousand years older than it is, so there's that.[[/note]] It's not hugely far-removed from the 19th century theories that Great Zimbabwe was built by "southern Jews".
** On the other hand, they have also reasserted many times that the ancient people were no idiots, as well as mentioning that it is perfectly possible that these monuments were created by the ancient people, but that due to the very complex natures of some of these places that could not even be created today, it's possible that they were assisted or encouraged to make these items by extraterrestrial intervention.
*** Which is of course nonsense. Ancient structures could ''easily'' be re-created today, it's just that no one particularly feels the need to spend the time and money to build, essentially, a big pile of rocks. There's a reason why experiments to determine how those structure may have been made often have a "No modern equipment or tools" rule: that would make it too easy.

--> '''Tsoulalos''': The Large Hadron Collider bears an uncanny resemblance to the Mayan Calender. Coincidence? ''I think not''.
