MONSTERS OF THE ATOMIC AGE
Atomic mutants? Giant insects? Monstrous reptiles? Fact or Fiction?
Well, I think we already know the answer to that question but this Saturday night we?ll get some definitive answers. Animal Planet will debut a new special called 'B-Movie Monsters', in which a variety of biologists and zoologists will separate science from fiction when they reveal the reality behind some of favorite B-movie monsters of the past. Find out why the giant ants from Them! would collapse under the weight of their own body armor before they ever got to ransack L.A. and why The Killer Shrews would probably be better off if they really were just dogs dressed up in carpet samples, among many other classic atomic age monstrosities that get dissected by eggheads in rim-horned glasses using big fancy scientific words. The 2-hour special premieres this Saturday night at 8 PM EST and again at 11 PM EST and 3 AM EST.
