The History Channel's Best Shows
If you are looking for something actually good to watch on TV then check out the History Channel. Surprisingly it is full of contemporary and smart series about the past and the future. It has a lot to offer. The History Channel can boast up to nearly 70 original series. here is a list of some of my favorites.
This is probably the History Channel's most popular show. Mike, Frank and Danielle are treasure hunters of sorts. They look through the most unlikely places and pick out the most unlikely things for their treasure. These guys and gal know their stuff as they are able to make a profit!
I could spend all day watching Pawn Stars, and in fact just did! The show is pretty informative! Not only do you get a lesson on value, you get a little history as well. The characters are pretty entertaining as well. The one character named Chumley really does look like the cartoon walrus! ( yes I know this dates me!) I recommend that you try this show out if you have not seen it already. I think it beats Storage Wars hands down!
This show follows a group of Cajuns through alligator hunting season. This show is based on life in the bayou. Over 20 characters complete the fourth season. The characters are quite funny for such hard working people.
