History Channel

Just for the record, I'd like to plainly state that I find at least 50% of what is on the History Channel to be total crap. Too much "Modern Marvels" and "World War II". (It's not referred to as the Hitler Channel for nothing). Occasionally, original programming like specials on the French Revolution or the War of 1812 are good (or at least adequate), but for someone with an interest in Medieval History....blech. Outta luck. Unless of course I pay extra to my cable provider and then I can receive 14 more History channels. But I guess that's the point, isn't it? Lowest common denominator served on "regular" cable, intellectual appetite sated on premium channels at greater expense. C'est la vie.

There's a reason why they call it the "Hitler Channel". There could be good, serious history programming, but they are stuck in the Hitler, Kennedy rut.
