Some of the episodes are marginally better than others, but it really boils down to the all too familiar theme of conspiracy theory and bad science. Particularly when covering subjects of a religious nature they appear to work very hard to portray the Catholic Church in the worst possible terms. Similar to the infamous Geraldo Rivera opening the lost safe of Al Capone to find... nothing... the stories are built with great dramatic effect only to end with no real revelations and very weak summing up of unsupported theory and conjecture. While not so full of obvious crackpots as the typical "History Channel" fare, I did note one episode where they presented someone as an "anthropologist who is, in fact, just a South African filmmaker and hardly an "expert" on anything but drama!
