UNSEALED Alien Files – Season 3 Premiere (Review)

unsealed_alienfiles_s3_00UNSEALED is a series devoted to the various files unveiled through the U.S. Freedom of Information Act in 2011. Due to this powerful act, many government files were declassified which gathered much attention from the public. Due to the great amount of data available, Bellum Entertainment Group created two shows from this event: UNSEALED: Alien Files and UNSEALED: Conspiracy Files. On behalf of Nerd Reactor’s Paranormal Division, “Mysterious Campfire Tales”, I’ll give you a brief tour of UNSEALED Alien Files – Season 3 episode “Alien Origins”.

The first episode which premiered on May 8, 2014, has some personal expectation of it being on a caliber of Through the Wormhole. But the contrast between the shows is time. While Through the Wormhole has an hour of airtime dedicated to all the research and questions, Alien Files only has a half-hour. So you might wonder, how can you provide substantial data in a small amount of time? You can, but you won’t be able to go in-depth with it.

unsealed_alienfiles_s3_01The purpose of these episodes, based purely on this premiere episode, is that it is trying to disseminate the declassified information to the public. Although it will provide commentary from specialists, audio tracks, visuals, and video clips, it does not go far beyond the meat of what certain Case Files point out.

unsealed_alienfiles_s3_02This episode’s case files are prefaced by a UFO sighting on April 3rd, 2007, in the English Channel of the United Kingdoms. Two separate airliners and some viewers at the ground-level see two massive vessels giving off an intense glow in the sky, hovering in place among the clouds. These objects stayed in the sky until the airliners broke visual contact. Radar scans remained inconclusive. And from that point, the narrator links to the topic of “Alien Origins”, touching on the Voyager 1 satellite and its journey beyond the Oort Cloud of our solar system, the thoughts behind Planet X, and teasing what was coming up in the episode.

unsealed_alienfiles_s3_03Given the case numbers provided in each section of the episode, I had to do some digging to see if they were genuine. On the surface level, I found no evidence supporting the numerical value of these cases and that cases like Better and Barney Hill who reported the location of the Grey (alien) Homeworld, were known even BEFORE the Freedom of Information Act.

The following case was based on the Dulce Incident in 1979, where the Dulce Papers were based on. The case concerns the story of a excavation operation (contracted to establish a new underground base) that turned into a military operation, when a contingent of Army Green Berets had to supervise the operation. No one knew initially why the supervision was required, until it led to a confrontation with the hidden base of aliens. A battle ensued, leaving various deaths on both sides. There’s even a Huffington Post article about it here.

unsealed_alienfiles_s3_04The Rendlesham Forest Incident is the next case on the list, where a pyramid-like object in the woods caused two people to experience “Missing Time”. This phenomenon is often associated with abductions, where time experienced is not the same amount of time in actuality. This case file is linked with the Chilean Timewarp incident, where a military group’s commander went missing for 15 minutes during a reconnaissance operation, while the commander personally experienced missing a few days and even had the facial hair to show for it. These cases were used to support the notion that perhaps aliens traveled across space through the folding of time.

The last idea in the show was introducing the idea that aliens could possibly be from our future, based on the biological theory that human evolution would lead to resembling the Greys. But this part seemed rush, as the episode ran out of time. I mean, the credits were already playing underneath.

unsealed_alienfiles_s3_05Aside from the somewhat misleading insinuation of these cases being derived from declassified files from the Freedom of Information Act, the show brings to light some compelling cases that I have not encountered in my perusal of paranormal information. Often times we run into stories of farmers or rural folk who get abducted, but never military personnel encounters. But, I guess if it’s military personnel involved, I can understand the need to classify information initially.

If you don’t have time to watch those hour long investigations, I recommend checking out UNSEALED Alien Files, airing Thursday nights at 9/8c on Destination America.
