Question by Claire Standish: How can I tell good History Channel documentaries from bad?
I’ve been getting really into documentaries recently but I’ve noticed some of the History Channel stuff is really well done and some is absolute garbage! Anyone know how to tell the difference before I buy one? Are there certain directors to look for? Or “specials” vs. tv shows? Maybe the amount of people involved in making it will clue me in?

Personally I consider much of what’s on the “History” Channel to be crap designed to help charlatans like Erich Von Daniken sell more books and videos. I stick with PBS Nova these days.
