On November 22, 1963 President John F Kennedy was assassinated, and 50 years later Rob Lowe will be playing 35th President in NatGeo’s Killing Kennedy. The first photo of him in the role of a lifetime was released today, and he looks the part. So much so that if his friend JFK, Jr. was alive today, he would be proud of Lowe.
The two hour movie, that’s set to air in November, is based on Bill O’Reilly and Martin Dugard’s book Killing Kennedy: The End of Camelot.
If you have ever been somewhere and been wowed by a fish tank, then you are going to be floored by Fish Tanks Kings on Nat Geo Wild tonight at 9p. Each week the people from Living Color will convert objects like a rusty VW Bus into a gorgeous colorful aquarium. You will watch them make these aquatic homes from scratch. You will see them tear apart objects to fit in the aquariums and then build them back up to be able to hold one. But what is the point of creating one if you don’t have any fish to put inside of it. We will see them go into the waters near Fort Lauderdale and catch the new residence of these fish condos. And every aquarium needs coral, they make that there too.
If you think watching fish swim in an fish tank is cool, watching that aquarium be made is even cooler. So tune in each week to watch the second season of Fish Tank Kings on Nat Geo Wild!
Tonight at 9p Doomsday Preppers is back on Nat Geo for a second season with two back to back episodes and I don’t know what scared me more, all of these calamities that they are prepping for or how fanatical they are about it. People all over the country are preparing themselves for things like a nuclear war, the return of Smallpox, a global financial collapse and an F-5 tornado to name a few catastrophes. They have built bunkers, started using their sh!t as a fertilizer, stocked up water and food, training themselves for attack and so on. I mean they seriously go all out to protect themselves against something that will most likely never happen. I have lived in Miami that has seen its fair share of hurricanes, Atlanta that has been hit by tons of tornadoes and LA that in known for earthquakes; and never once did I ever prepare for my environment. I think I have had (please stay in the past tense) a better chance of seeing a devastating disaster than these people, yet they are more prepared for it then I am and you probably are.
Now even though I think they are crazy, it did make me think that I need to get a plan in motion. Because even though I have a big cat, I am not sure how many days I could eat her before I ran out of food. I kid, she would eat me before I ate her.
But seriously Doomsday Preppers will really make you think. Especially when they evaluate all of these people after each of their segments. In the 6 (3 an ep) that air tonight, none of them would last longer than a year with all of the years they have been putting into their effort. But then again if they evaluated us, I bet we wouldn’t make it past a week.
Now I can’t not talk about the Preppers themselves. There is/are a single man, families, couples and even a 15 year old kid. Yes, there is a teenager who is so afraid of the world going to sh!t, he is bunkering up for it and he basically tells his mom he wouldn’t take her with him. Then there are the parents who are teaching their kids, one as young as four to shoot a gun just in case. Seriously? But there is some humor in tonight’s episodes when one of the couples tells the producers that since they shot the show, her husband and her are going through a messy divorce. In fact things are so ugly they are suing over who gets custody of the prepping stuff. Maybe they should’ve prepped for that instead? You have to tune in for the two episodes to see if you can figure out which couple it is.
And you have to tune in for a series that makes you think, am I prepared? As we all learned a few weeks ago, a lot of people were not prepared for Hurricane Sandy. You never know when a disaster is going to strike, so we need to have the necessary items to get through what may come. We need a happy medium between the Doomsday Preppers and what we are doing now and watching the show will get us there.
Summer family vacation time is over and if you thought your trip was bad, it ain’t nothing as compared to what happened to the people on Nat Geo Wild’s An Animal #$*% My Vacation! Tonight at 10p when you watch this show that is as brilliant as its name, you will realize that your trip wasn’t that bad. That’s because one woman got dry humped by a dolphin, another guy got a tic on his dick, while another man had a sea lion jump on lap while he was kayaking and the sea mammal thought the guy’s crotch smelled like fish. But it wasn’t only about the crotch area and animals, there was couple who was in South Africa when a baboon opened their car door and decided to jump in. But at least he remained in the back seat unlike the bear in Lake Tahoe who broke into a family’s Prius and wound up driving it away when he couldn’t get out. Oh yeah and did you know that a goat has really huge testicles when he gets excited? All of these awful holidays were caught on video and the people involved relive their tales that seem more like something out of National Lampoon’s Vacation than real life! If ever there was show that appropriate on a Labor Day, it is this one and it is just as fun as when you get home to your own bed after your awful family summer outing.
Barbie went on vacation to Cuba with her boyfriend and a dolphin got more action with her than he did. The trainer told Barbie to let the dolphin kiss her and she did. Well he took it as a sign that it was OK to come out of the water and hump her. She let him do it because what else can you do, and she paid a price for being so generous with him. According to boyfriend not only did the situation stink really bad, so did she. How many showers does one take to wash off the smell of that shame?
It is stories like this one that will make up NatGeo Wild’s An Animal #$*% My Vacation on September 3rd at 10p and I can’t wait to see what else happens to unsuspecting tourists. Watching this video made me completely disappointed because the worst thing that ever happened to me is they airline lost my luggage, and here these people can say things like a bear destroyed my Prius while I roughing it at Lake Tahoe. I need a new travel agent ASAP. Do they still have travel agents?
Maybe because UFO stands for unidentified flying objects, there is something about them that really interests me. So when I heard about Nat Geo’s Chasing UFOs, I couldn’t wait to watch this out of the world show that debuts tonight at 9p. Each episode a team of investigators will look into some of the most famous cases of UFO sightings and try to find out if they identify the unidentifiable. Ben McGee is Physical Scientist who is a skeptic, Erin Ryder does Tech and Recon and you don’t want to mess with this brave woman and finally there is self-declared UFOligist James Fox. Together the three them will go all over the world to find out if there is something out there. I will tell you after watching the first two episodes of the show that air tonight, they changed my way of thinking about flying saucers. So tune in for a show that tackles a topic we have all seen before, but in a much different way.
Today is the day we remember the soldiers who died while trying to protect us, but on National Geographic Channel we see a few of them come home and surprise their families. At 10p Witness: G.I. Homecoming shows five families’ surprise reunions after their loved ones return home from protecting our country. But isn’t just their reunions that we witness, we hear how it all came about and listen to their reactions when they see each other for the first time in a really long time. If you think that the above raw video is beyond emotional, it will make you cry even more when you hear the back story edited together with it. I cried happy tears while I watched her story and the sister who only wanted her brother at her graduation. Then there is a son who goes to his mom’s job to surprise her and his mom’s reaction will leave you grabbing for the tissues. There are a few more reunions that will tear at your heartstrings, but isn’t that what today is all about. Yes we are remember the ones that didn’t make it home, but let’s also remember the ones that do.
I want to thank all of the people who have fought and continue to fight to make us safe from harm. Thank you.
Imagine being shown video of just one unknown person in America and having to identify them? That might sound damn near impossible, but it becomes a little more plausible if you are forensic expert. And that is the premise for National Geographic’s The Great American Manhunt that debuts tonight at 9p. Forensic anthropologist Dr. Natalie Shirley, forensic psychiatrist Dr. Dan Shapiro and veteran police officer Bill Erfurth will be shown an unidentifiable person, given their clothes, hair, skin and some other effects that will help them identify the person. They will not be able to use databases, fingerprints or dental record to look into the John Doe’s ID, but instead they will have to use their smarts and investigative skills. They will give the person a name like Autograph Man and then try to figure out as much as they can. They will think they know what the person does by scars on and in their bodies and they could be right or wrong. Once they have a really good sense of what the person do for a living, they will then try to guess where the person lives. Now that they know that, they will now go to that area and pray they can find that needle in the haystack. It is incredible to watch them find just one person among the millions in the United States of America. In fact on tonight’s show they will find a person we have all heard about, and it is not by what he does for a living. If you think shows like CSI and Bones are exciting then you are really going to love watching the real life pursuit to find one person.
Tonight at 10 and 10:30p on the National Geographic Channel The Indestructibles is going to premiere and you are not going to want to miss the life changing show.
The show documents people who survived unsurvivable crashes. Their story is told by witnesses and even the people themselves. Once we hear and see the shocking moments that changed their lives forever, we learn how they were able to survive by reenactments. Everything about each half hour episode will amaze you and leave you in awe.
Tonight’s first episode deals with a local news helicopter that crashes into a rooftop as another news crew watches and reports on the accident as it happened. The other news crew thought for sure they were dead, and is left speechless when it turns out they are alive and you will be too.
The next episode deals with a man, who was innocently walking the street, when a car hit by a SUV sends the SUV tumbling into the air and rolling over that man. He looks to be a goner for sure, but a computerized reenactment shows how he survived and how he did was a scenario he never pictured.
Seriously this show is a must watch. We all know life can be over in a quick second, but this series demonstrates that that isn’t always true. It will give you a new outlook on life and we always need to have one.
I can’t even begin to tell you how mesmerized by the first two episodes of this powerful episodes. National Geographic shows just have a way about them.
GoodFellas is one of the most revered movies of all time and tonight at 10p on Nat Geo you can get to know the real man and story behind the 1990 film. In Locked Up Abroad Henry Hill tells his side of the story and what really happened, since not everything could or would be told in the movie. This is a must watch for anyone who loved the Oscar winning film and wants to know more about the man that was brave enough to become an informant against his Mafia family.
Next week on Locked Up Abroad the show tells the story of a separated woman pregnant with another man’s child, who was arrested for adultery in the Philippines. After both her lover and her are sent to jail and then released they do what they can to get out of the country with their new daughter because according to the law there her estranged husband has rights to the kid that is not his. Listening to the couple explain their story makes you really glad you live in a country where the laws against adultery are a lot more lenient.
Actually listening to everyone’s stories on this compelling returning series is enough to watch. As bad as we think the justice system is in The States, it is much more tolerable then it is other countries.
