fascinating....interesting....excellent photgraphy.... Planet Earth and Blue Planet fans will find these episodes well worth viewing
awesome - hope HD version comes soon
Loved it on TV. even better re-watching it. Just wish it was in High Def, as it was broadcast. but still, worth the 9 bucks for 6 episodes.
I was absolutely fascinated by this series. I agree, it should have been in HD, and I hope there are more seasons in the future. One of the better documentaries on nature and evolution.
