Top Secret UFO Projects: Declassified is a six-part docuseries that examines various efforts by the US and UK governments to cover up evidence that UFOs – and perhaps extraterrestrial life – has been witnessed multiple times over the past 80 years. The first episode discusses “Project Blue Book” where the Air Force and other military entities investigated UFO claims as they were reported. With a combination of archival footage, expert interviews and some CGI reenactments, we’re told that Project Blue Book’s main goal was to debunk these reports, or at least make the American public think that these reports are being debunked. The show goes over different sightings, from the infamous one in Roswell, NM in 1947 all the way into the mid-’60s, a few years before Project Blue Book ended. In every case, the experts bemoan the fact that these sightings seem to be from multiple, credible sources who were consistent in their accounts, but that the US government somehow explained away all of them with generic descriptions of weather balloons, experimental aircraft or a very visible image of Jupiter. The episodes of Top Secret UFO Projects: Declassified all run about 45 minutes; there was a lot of sound and fury, but nothing was interesting enough to take notice.
