    It used be be Nazis, WW2 in Color, The Luftwaffe, The Kriegsmarine, Secret Weapons of the Nazis, Hitler's Secrets, More nazis, etc. Now it's just reality show bullshit. How is Pawn Stars, Ice Road Trucking, Swamp Logging, or any of that other bullshit actually history? FUCK YOU HISTORY CHANNEL, thank god for NatGeo and the Discovery Science channel

    They have some second history channel now. I think they play actual history stuff.

    Also they still play Modern Marvels, and that's like the best show ever. I watched it for an hour and a half this morning. It was about sugar and sugar confections.

    I can tolerate shows like Pawn Stars and American Pickers on the History channel because they both focus on very old shit that they find, buy, or sell. But Ice Road Truckers, Swamp People, and Top Shot? How is this history? It's not.

    And they have this new show Hairy Bikers? Shit.

    I guess there's no market for channels that air educational programming. Considering the only people who actually subscribe to TV stations and watch it not from their internet are poor, and old retards.
    I remember when Discovery channel first started airing the faggot flagship, Orange County Choppers. It was such a dim day for me, as I used to enjoy Discovery channels programming.

    I was once insulted by three middle-aged guys in OCC shirts and gear. They said I dressed like a fag, and wanted to know if I was a fag - "huh huh!" So I unsheathed by verbal dagger and reminded the guys that OCC was for nerds because it was a Discovery channel show, and that wearing any OCC gear was like wearing a Discovery shirt. They genuinely seemed embarrassed and my cock grew another two-inches.

    I've already lumped the History Channel in with MTV. Neither channel really offers what their name implies is available.

    I like that show about annoying 30-yo douche crews on MTV who wear trucker hats and have beards and likes retro looks while being stuntmen and living dangerous, mixed in with cut scenes of 'boarding with hiphop remixes - *whicchk whhicck whickk!! -- NAAA$$$$TYYY*

    I heard they're going to start airing its clone on History and Discovery channel now too. Can't wait!

    History? On the history channel? That's like putting educational programming on TLC.

    There's more history on national geogrphic. Plus taboo is fucking awesome, I've been emailing them to do a show on furries and why it should be taboo.

    Also, I only go to discovery to masturbate on that cute redhead nerd on mythbusters.

    Modern Marvels is cool, I like how they make even fairly mundane things sound like orgasmic feats of magical braingineering.

    They've done a MM on rope. I've seen it twice and loved every second of it.

    History Channel use to be all Hitler all the time. It was great. I don't know why they changed formats, I wish they would change it back.
