Is there life out there?

The History channel is coming out with a new series called Project Blue Book this fall/winter. As soon as I hear that it reminded me of something that I remember watching as a child back in the 70’s. I thought it was also ufocalled Project Blue Book, but going through the internet, Google, IMDB, YouTube, the only thing that I can find that even closely resembles what I remember is Project UFO.

I watched Season 1, Episode 1 on YouTube and if you’re interested I’ve added it at the end of this post. It starred Caskey Swaim as Staff Sergeant Harry Fitz, Ed Winter as Captain Ben Ryan, Will Jordan as Major Jake Gatlin and a whole host of other actors and actresses that were big back in the day.

I think this was what I remember as a child, but it’s hard to say. So I’m just going to at this point say this was it. It’s got some of things that I remember in it, the two men in Air Force uniforms driving the generic Blue Air Force marked vehicle. I think it was a Dodge Diplomat, but can’t be sure. It sounds about right for the time. They would go around the country and investigate these sightings and attempt to debunk them. The pilot kind of looked like what I remember, but again, I can’t be sure. If anyone out there remembers this series, please let me know in the comments if Project UFO was what it was.

Anyhow, like I said The History Channel is bringing this series back to life but it feels a little like the original X Files show. It starts sometime this fall and stars Aidan Gillen of Game of Throne Fame and Neal McDonough from Arrow.



I’ts the story of real-life, U.S. Air Force-sponsored investigations into UFO-related phenomena from 1947-70.

I think it’s going to be pretty decent from what I’ve seen so far. can’t wait to get a look at the first episode and I can make a better decision based off of that. But overall, I think it’s going to be good.

And if you want to do a little research and investigation yourself, head on over to the Blue Book Archive.

bba_splashThere’s currently around 56,000 pages online and it provides a modern interface to documents relating to the U.S. government’s investigation of UFO phenomena.

Take a look at the trailer and let me know what you think in the comments below.
