Supposed historical re-enactments of investigations performed by Dr. J. Allen Hynek and his Air Force counterpart, Captain Quinn. What caught me as strange was that all the places and DOD names for events were kept but the witnesses were not. For instance, Project Grudge, Project Sign, Project Mogul, etc. are mentioned correctly. Area 51, Roswell, Maury Island, Wright Patterson, etc. are all the places with names intact but the rancher at Roswell, (which all UFO enthusiasts know was Max Brazel) was now Jeff Connor. Quinn's superior is General Harding when in actuality it was General Twining. Why keep everything else intact but change those names? Moving on, how is this any different from the "X-Files"? Oh, instead of a Skully, there's Quinn but with the roles reversed. Its a period piece, beginning at the onset of the US Air Force's "Project Blue Book" which began in 1952 so filming on site was out of the question because all the places visited (Roswell, Wright Patterson, etc.) look totally different today and a lot of effort must have gone into props, buildings, cars, etc. to be chronically correct. If Hynek were here today, I'm sure he'd be pleased with the History Channel's treatment of him

Quite stirring in interpretation. Special effects were very convincing. Some friends of mine in the early 70's saw UFO activity one night heading back to campus after a church event. That was a fright for them.
So, this series is pretty close to reality, in that the world wanted sightings to be squelched by those who experienced them.

Project Blue Book is one of best tv shows on air. That tells truth behind this government cover-up about UFO's. This is a well done tv series.

Way to much completely unnecessary and disgusting smoking. It appears everything revolves around plausible deniability and definitely not finding the truth.

Sorry to disagree with so many other borrowers, but I dislike that the producers picked SO many weak experiences from Hynek's records. The cases shown are very "har har look at the swamp gas, or this guy faked it for money." None of this impresses me. Hynek became convinced the government was using him.

A well done period-piece series. The acting, directing, writing, and most especially the set designs are all top-rate. It does however raise the question as to why alien sightings were so prevalent in that time period compared to our current high-tech world. Makes you think don't it?

The paragraphs at the end decribing the real characters is eye opening.

If you love X-Files you will like this show also!!! It's great!

I always liked the UFO report that was checked by Blue Book when the woman who was reporting said she could show investigators the UFOs any night. When they told her those were ordinary Earth airplanes, she said that it was just a small town, there couldn't be that many airplanes in the area. So obviously, they must have been UFOs. Will that story be told on the TV series? Watch and see.
