*Special Note*
PBS and the various Discovery Channels are all great sources for specials on killer asteroids, historical and possible future pandemics, bio-warfare, nuclear accidents and degradation of the eco-sphere. In addition, Discovery has proven over the years that they're not above tossing out pander-fests on UFO's, alien abductions, Nostradamus prophesies and Marian messages. But it's the History Channel and its affiliates that have practically turned into ground-zero for crazy-town programming; from conspiraciana of all stripes to UFO mania to Apocalyptic rave-a-thons to even a few specials and series on actual historical subjects, like the development of the A-bomb and the duck 'n cover mentality of the Cold War era. Always pays to check your local listings.
