MEGAN Fox is a stunning supermodel and credible actress.
Add her to a wealth of ancient fables, conspiracy theories and pseudoscientific technobabble. Then add funding from the Travel Channel.
Sounds like a perfect fit?
For ratings-hungry TV producers — yes.
For those who know what they’re talking about — no.
Archaeologists are worried that an incessant barrage of fantasy being presented as fact on our television screens and books is distorting reality.
Mysteries and Myths with Megan Fox is just the latest in a slew of similar shows.
Fox bills herself as co-creator, host and executive producer.
So she’s not just a talking head.
What she isn’t, though, is a historian. Or an archaeologist.
But this supermodel feels qualified enough to take them on at their own game.
“Now she is embarking on an epic and personal journey across the globe, where archaeologists and experts will re-examine history, asking tough questions and challenging the conventional wisdom that has existed for centuries,” the press release reads. “The series will delve into some of the greatest mysteries of time, including whether Amazon women really existed or if the Trojan War was real.”
