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
