Television Review: #AloneShow

Not The Typical History Channel Show Review by David Clark History channel is once again distancing themselves from the stigma of being a documentary channel with Alone, the latest in competitive survival reality television. Alone is not simply another Survivor or Naked and Afraid. To win Alone contestants will need an impressive set of survival skills, but they will also need a level of mental fortuity that has never before been seen in a reality competition. Taking place on the remote Vancouver Island wilderness, Alone pits 10 men against nature, each other, and themselves. It is a last man standing style game with a grand prize of five hundred thousand dollars. For many people that has the potential to be a life changing amount of money which explains the sacrifices some of the contestants have made. Many of them have left behind families for an unknown amount of time. That is the other catch. Shows like Survivor have an elimination process that guarantees the

Television Review: #TexasRising Doesn't Get It Quite Right...Again

The History Channel miniseries doesn't get it quite right...again. Review by Matt Cummings For something whose name suggests they should hold the monopoly on truth, The History Channel seems enamored with constantly telling its own embellished version of America's story. From the terribly-inaccurate Sons of Liberty to The Hatfields and McCoys , History doesn't quite get that our story doesn't need a dramatic touch to be excellent. Such is the case with Texas Rising , the 10-hour, 5-parter mega story that mires us in dirt, filth, and soap-opera dialogue while doing very little to tell us the real story of Texas' genesis. Starting off with the longest dialogue crawl in recent memory (it goes on like Dark Helmet's ship in Spaceballs ), Texas Rising sets us immediately into the center of The Alamo, the fort which Mexico General Santa Anna ( Olivier Martinez )had destroyed in 1836. Word gets back to the commander of the resistance Sam Houston ( Bill Paxton

#LOSTINTRANSMISSION PREMIERES May 7th On @HISTORY

LOST IN TRANSMISSION PREMIERES ON HISTORY® THURSDAY, MAY 7 AT 10PM ET/PT Automotive aficionado and TOP GEAR co-host, Rutledge Wood , and fellow car fanatic, George Flanigen , are hitting the road with one mission: rescue and restore America’s most under-appreciated classic cars. Premiering on HISTORY® Thursday, May 7 at 10 PM ET/PT, LOST IN TRANSMISSION will follow these two car connoisseurs as they comb the barns and backyards of America to find rare rides from the past and get them back on the road to live another day. From resurrecting a 1981 DeLorean that was submerged in Hurricane Sandy to an insect infested 1964 Ford F100 that has been at the mercy of the elements for years, restoring these classics isn't about making a profit for Rutledge and George, it's about uncovering the most incredible vehicles ever made and seeing them run like new. Rutledge is an expert at finding rare cars and George is a shrewd operator with an eye on the budget, providing a much-needed c
