Alternate History – Spike

We normally don’t waste our time with the silly, albeit guilty pleasure fare of Spike TV for the purposes of the ‘Tastic, however, the “special,” ‘Alternate History,’ piqued our interest with the trailers and then so thoroughly disappointed us with the production that we felt it was necessary for sake of historical and intellectual honesty to warn our readers to stay away from this ridiculous crapfest trying to pass itself off as a serious documentary.
