‘Ancient Aliens‘, the History Channel masterpiece, that has spanned more than 150 episodes since its debut in 2010, is a documentary-style historical series that attempts to analyze if it was an alien intervention that resulted in the extinction of dinosaurs. According to the theorists featured on the show, extraterrestrial entities helped in the evolution and progress of humankind. Adopting conspiracy themes, coupled with ancient symbols, secret societies and cults, mysterious ruins, and shady data, it tries to support its claims with reasoning.
Although it’s not quite possible to simply accept all the ridiculous theories presented on the series, you should know one thing — it is definitely an enjoyable watch. And building up on this material is Viceland’s ‘Travelling the Stars: Action Bronson and Friends Watch Ancient Aliens’. Producers Hannah Gregg and Jordan Kinley decided to create a show that would feature a group of rappers and artists, discussing the episodes of ‘Ancient Aliens’ while being completely out of their minds. The cast members sit on a couch, smoking marijuana, as they talk about the events depicted on the screen before them.
‘Traveling the Stars: Action Bronson and Friends Watch Ancient Aliens’ debuted on Viceland in 2016. Now, after a hiatus of almost three years, it returns to the channel for a second installment. Here’s everything we know about the renewed version.
Traveling The Stars Cast: Who is in it?
‘Traveling the Stars: Action Bronson and Friends Watch Ancient Aliens’ is hosted by rapper Action Bronson. The huge, tattoo-covered artist is a chef-turned-rapper, who is easily recognized by his red, shaggy beard. He is best known for his mixtapes ‘Blue Chips 2’ and ‘Dr. Lecter’ and album ‘Mr. Wonderful‘. Bronson has also appeared on Vice’s ‘Fuck, That’s Delicious’, a food documentary that chronicles his trials with food and travel. He is the perfect host for ‘Bronson and Friends’ as ‘Ancient Aliens’ happens to be his favorite show.
Apart from Bronson, the series also features The Alchemist as his co-host. The duo is accompanied by several of their artist friends from the entertainment industry, including Schoolboy Q, Knxwledge, Earl Sweatshirt, Andy Milonakis, Melissa Etheridge, and Tyler, the Creator –– who join them in the most absurd discussions across the episodes.
Traveling The Stars Plot: What is it about?
‘Traveling The Stars: Action Bronson and Friends Watch Ancient Aliens’ features Bronson and his buddies binge-ing on episodes of ‘Ancient Aliens’ and discussing the theories presented on the insanely weird series — all the while being high on weed. Multiple guest stars such as famous music producers, musicians, actors, and celebs accompany him on his couch as they watch ‘Ancient Aliens’ on a monitor while the show is green-screened behind them. The series brings in psychedelic elements via floating objects and is narrated in a free-form, unscripted manner.
