DATELINE: Episode 6, Finale
Rock of UFO: Tom De Longe.
The final episode of the six-show season of Unidentifed is basically self-congratulatory.
You see, they believe their unremitting pressure on the government of the United States has resulted in a changed policy for pilots who report seeing little green men.
It is well overdue, yes, that young officers do not face ridicule for pointing out that something is happening out there, and no one seems to want to explain it or investigate it.
That is the series ultimate message: not that there is a coverup, but that there is a never saw it and never want to see it attitude.
They even interview Sen. Harry Reid, now retired, who gave the Pentagon money to record these black budget hidden items.
We keep wondering how a former rock star, like bewildered Tom De Longe wound up as a producer and billed as one of the government experts.
The theories are intriguing: either there is a secret race of super-beings hiding under the ocean, or there is an armada of light-travelers racing across the universe, or we are under the thumb of a group of spiritual beings.
In any respect, our goose seems cooked. The creatures behind the phenomena are far superior to us, and if they want to take over Earth, they can do so in a heartbeat.
Instead, we seem to provide some amusement. Shows like Unidentified are a bit different, more cynical, and increasingly desperate to wake up the sleeping human race. Will there be another season of this show? It’s unidentified for now.
Whether this is panic or paranoia, only the ultimate revelation will tell. Yes, Virginia, there may be a Santa Claus, but he is at the South Pole, not the North.
From Minot to Roswell to Guadalupe, to the halls of the Pentagon, we are following a trail of bread crumbs that take us only deeper into the forest.
