This is a series of half hour episodes in which the host/narrator sets up a series of dubious historical fallacies, dramatically declares them "FICTION" with a big red "rubber stamp" screen graphic, and attempts to correct the wrongs by offering alternative theories from less than authoritative sources. Guest "experts" include Dr. Allan J. Lichtman, Professor of History at American University and frequent television commentator best known for his terrible looking hairpiece.
This show has two main problems: 1. The "popular myths" that are put forth are rarely popular, and often matters of conjecture that can neither be proved of disproved. 2. The so-called "facts" used to disprove the "myths" tend to be riddled with factual errors!
Rule number 1 of any show that purports to bust myths should be "get your facts straight!" This show ignores that rule frequently, ironically and sometimes hilariously. If you're a history scholar, don't watch this show on your own TV, because you will want to throw a shoe at it! If you're a Wikipedia Scholar, someone who cares much more about considering yourself "right" than about making an effort to learn actual facts, this show is for you. This is a show (by and) for the true dilettante. For everyone else, it's just not interesting.
All told your time will be better spent reading a good book.
