On Thursday, October 29th, the History Channel is going to be showing four new episodes of UFO Hunters. For whatever reason, they don't seem to be advertising the marathon much (yet). I haven't seen any advertisements for it on TV and I haven't seen it mentioned on the History Channel's website. The only places I've seen it mentioned is over at the Alien Casebook Frontier and on an article about Men in Black that references material that will be covered in one of the upcoming episodes.
I'm excited about all four episodes, but I'm really excited about the Men in Black (MIB) episode (the episode is named "The Silencers"). I think the MIB stories are very interesting, not just because men wearing black suits come and try to make sure someone stays silent about a UFO they saw, but because sometimes the MIB seem to behave in an unusual manner. Sometimes they seem to be confused by everyday items such as pens or eating untensils, and sometimes they use outdated slang. Sometimes they are threatening, other times they may try to convince the subject they didn't really see what they saw. Some people think that the MIB are aliens themselves (at least some of them). The MIB typically claim to come from some government agency and may provide identification, but when verification of their identities is sought later, there is no record of them.
You also have to wonder how many potential testimonies have been silenced by the MIB. Hopefully the new episode of UFO Hunters will provide some new insights on the subject.
And if you like the show and haven't signed the petition to get the series renewed, go here and sign it. To read synopsis' of the four new episodes on October 29th, go here.
