This epic natural history series reveals the glorious variety of life on Earth and the spectacular and extraordinary tactics animals and plants have developed to stay alive. This is evolution in action; individual creatures under extreme pressure to overcome challenges from adversaries and their environment, pushing the boundaries of behavior. Cutting edge cinematic techniques capture unprecedented, astonishingly beautiful sequences - birds running and dancing on the water's surface in dazzlingly intricate displays of courtship and fidelity, fish outwitting predators by using their fins to take flight, flies competing in a mesmerizing eyeball inflation contest. This is Life - as you've never seen it before. Narrated by David Attenborough.

Not as Good as Planet Earth and The Blue Planet but still enjoyable

I have to admit that I was really excited when I saw the advertisement for this online. But after watching the first few episodes on the Discovery Channel, I realized that it was almost the same as many other nature documentaries that I've seen. But despite all that, I still enjoy watching it. Just so you know, they have several groundbreaking sequences in it such as the defense strategy of the pebble toad in Venezuela where it curls up into a little ball and rolls down the side of a mountain in order to escape the fangs of a tarantula or the humpback whale heat run off the coast of the island of Tonga in the South Pacific. Just because I said it wasn't as good as Planet Earth and The Blue Planet doesn't mean you shouldn't watch it. If you're a nature documentary fan and you just want to watch something entertaining, this show is a good choice.

Better, faster, stronger

As I write this, I have Life in the background. The first episode is playing:
There's an octopus starving to death as it guards its nest of eggs, which resemble a bunch of white grapes. Before that, a hippo fight showed one running in slow motion. Before that, a type of fly went through some metamorphisis by extending its eye-stalks to impress females and intimidate rival males. This series is more focused on the creatures that are on this planet than Planet Earth's more over-all view.
If you enjoyed the likes of Planet Earth, this one is, without a doubt for, for you. Better, faster, and more intimate.

Entertaining and Eye-Catching!

The first time I watched an episode of this was in my biology class, and it was the best thing we ever watched in there. I've never really been into these animal documentary type shows, but Life is amazing and definitely worth watching!
