I wish they'd do more as well. I guess you can't keep a show like this going forever (since eventually they run out of empires) but I certainly would enjoy something in a similar vein. The show "Ancient Discoveries" has a similar feel to it and I like it a lot (some episodes more than others though).

I agree, they would run out of empires fairly fast, but I really enjoyed seeing the engineering aspect instead. I thought their episode on China was WAAY too short. It was one hour, I would have made it at least two, possibly three if you included some of the Asian countries that China has owned at one point or another.

What I'd also like to see them do is get Peter Weller involved with narrating another show. That guy rocked.

Oh Yeah!! I think the only other narrator/guest I've liked as much is Dr. Zahi Hawass - He is an absolute riot. He gets so excited when he starts talking about Ancient Egypt, it's great!
