Default Cities of the Underworld

I'm watching the show Cities of the Underworld on History. This episode is called "Hitler's Underground Lair" but the second half of it is talking about underground beer cellars dug by Berliners for lagering. It's pretty amazing...

I've watched a few episodes of this show now and it's pretty interesting... anyone else enjoy this show?

I've seen a couple episodes that I enjoyed, a few others that bored me. Overall, it's pretty cool, I definately check it out when flipping through.

If anybody wants to check it out, new episodes are on Monday at 9PM EST. I think the season is almost over but they rerun them all the time, as you might have guessed.

Must be a marathon now, watching one about Naples and the area around Mount Vesuvius... very cool

Where do you think the word "bierkeller" (beer cellar) comes from anyway?

Watching "Vlad the Impaler" at the moment. Wow, what a sick bastard.

I kind of dig the show. Altho I've seen the one on the Hippodrome way too many times. Sometimes Mr. Host seems a little too orgasmic over some things as well, but over all, I like it.

Yeah he tries too hard sometimes, pretty sure it's all an act to try and keep the sometimes boring subjects exciting. Usually around that time though they cut to a cool 3D computer model of what the ruins would have looked like back in their heyday.

Should make for an interesting name for his brewing operation!
