Search for the Lost Giants

So, is this a new low for the History Channel? Or is it just me? I might expect this dreck on SyFy.

Was/Is this an actual History Channel show? At least it wasn't Search For The Lost Giant Ice Road Truckers.

Remember when the History Channel used to be jokingly called the Nazi or Hitler channel? Those days are gone.

Sadly yes, in fact it's a whole series.

Stonemasons Jim and Bill Vieira are on a quest to investigate an incredible theory: that the myths and legends we’ve all been told about giants are actually rooted in fact.

There is a well known medical condition that produces 7-8 ft tall people fairly regularly. A lot of them end up in professional sports now. Imagine you live in a culture where the average man is 5'6" and 140 lbs and someone with a pituitary disorder is born and grows into a Andre the Giant size person (he did have the disorder). Of course there are going to be legends about that "giant".

So yeah, giants are real. They are humans with a glandular disorder. The whole double row of teeth thing is stupid, though. Its not uncommon to spice up legends to make them more fantastical.
