[quote:Anonymous Coward 869016:MV85Njg4MzVfMTUxMzI0MDVfNkYwMTUzMUI=] Lapis, What do I want to see? Well, real History on a channel that calls itself History. As for WWII, yes, it is real History. It was brought about, fought, won and ended by real people who had a whole lot more to do with who you are, why you are and where you are than the "REAL" people doing "REAL" work that you seem to admire. And if you find this mind-numbing tripe fascinating, that is a matter of your taste and your choice - which speaks very well for the education you have received. What I and many others find objectionable is that this is NON-History and it is being fed to people like you who do not know the difference as "History." It is, in fact, "Reality TV" and it is what Nancy DuBuc does best. And for people who like it, there is a place for it - the A&E Channel. That is part of the same big corporation that owns History Channel. So, we would like them to walk these shows upstairs or across the hall and re-run them ad nausium between the four billionth and five billionth re-reruns of CSI MIAMI and DOG, THE BOUNTY HUNTER. You won't even have to change the channel! As for re-runs, History Channel has plenty of very good material that they do own, that they did produce and that people loved and enjoyed many times over that they absolutely refuse to air in favor of this stuff that simply is not History. There are some of us who know the difference. And as long as everything on these two channels is being re-run and re-run, History has nothing to lose by using some of their good material - except to see how badly the Truckers, Loggers, Pawn Brokers and Pickers stand up against it. That would not be good for Nancy DuBuc's ego - or her career and History Channel knows it. That is why many of us have started a BOYCOTT MADE EVERY DAY and now have added the mantra, FIRE NANCY DUBUC. With values like yours and what you think is "real," I hope you live happily (and ignorantly) ever after - with a Picker. [/quote]
I can NOT believe that the HISTORY channel would show such a disgrace to our older generation. TO think for one minute this would somehow be cleared to air is appalling. To brag or somehow boast about an unsolicited visit to Leland's farm and the price paid versus the actual value should be illegal. If this would have been my granddad I would have felt robbed of my family heirloom and treasures. The History Channel should immediately cancel this show!!!!!!!!!!!!! We were so looking forward to a new show that was really about hidden treasures in American not thievery we couldn't even finish the show.
These guys are scum bags !!!!! Nice job History Channel way to promote thieves . I would love to meet these guys face to face , and work a deal out with them. If you know what I mean ! And my parents always told me crime doesn't pay, unless you make a show for the History Channel .Way to teach kids its ok to steal from the older generation. History Channel you should make things right pay these people fair price for their stuff, and fire these dirt bags
