Description

On Season 3 of America Unearthed, Scott Wolter continues his quest to right the wrongs of history, uncovering new artifacts and evidence that transforms what we’ve long considered fact into fiction. He investigates mysteries in America and around the world involving iconic figures, epic locations and tales of treasure, convinced that clues lie hidden, just waiting to be discovered. Could evidence in China prove an ancient fleet of warriors made it to what is now San Francisco? Will America’s most legendary treasure, the Lost Dutchman’s gold, finally be found? Could new evidence of the Knights of Templar in Pennsylvania be what Wolter needs to convince skeptics that the group of knights made it to America with a secret long ago? This season promises to be the most intriguing yet.

Customer Reviews

“…thought we found something significant. It turned out to be a rock."

Direct quote from the Alamo episode and a metaphor for this series. I love the premise, but I’m giving up. Bought the first two seasons. Shame on me…but I hoped for better. His basic premise is state a wild hypothesis, find some kook “expert” to blather, hype hype hype…crap, it’s a rock. He’s yet to prove a single hypothesis or solve a single mystery. Great marketer though.

Full of Himself

I first saw Scott a few years ago in the "Holy Grail in America" special the History Channel had. I actually liked him in that, as he seemed to be a bit objective. Boy, has that changed. This series is quite a let down. And, I've stuck with it until half-way through season 3. The show is way too scripted, and quite cheesy at that. Instead of just going to investigate these theories of every single civilization from the 'old world' coming to America before the Spanish Expeditions, Scott acts more like some sort of Indiana Jones character. The one thing about the "Holy Grail in America" special was that it actually had contrasting opinions. On "America Unearthed" at most, any contrary opinion to Scott's is given a few seconds before being completely discounted. I recall the episode about Davey Crockett having supposedly survived the Alamo and went to Alabama. The evidence of this was some old document signed by someone with the last name Crockett. After the signature was shown to not be Davey Crockett's, the signature expert also found that another person by the last name of Crockett lived in that area. Scott dismisses the clearly logical hypothesis for the sole reason that the redneck family who made the farfetched claim believes it was the real Davey Crockett. Come on. But hey, at least this episode actually had the contrasting opinion!

This show had a lot of promise and potential to be a very interesting series on less-covered theories. And for that creativity, it gets 2 stars. But the execution of the show is outright horrible. And Scott Wolter, whose "science" was something he has pretty much made up, needs a dose of humility.
