Boooooooo
8 January 2014 | by monkeyrackSee all my reviews

Watched the first 20 minutes of this and was horrified, behind the great CGI was the most factually inaccurate documentary I have ever seen. Weapons used before we know existed, earliest cave paintings in France? No Spain, the United Kingdom shown as a separate island when in fact it was still connected to mainland Europe, Stonehenge showing only a fraction of its construction. I stopped watching when the Architect of the great pyramid was depicted as a great innovator, what about the architect of the pyramid of Djoser 850 years earlier? A pile of glorified crap that I found frankly insulting. Most humankind changing history happened well before the dawn of the USA so it would be nice to see Americans learning and teaching truths of our origins. That's if your not too busy clinging on to an archaic constitution enabling you to carry guns and shoot each other.
