4.0 out of 5 stars Introduction to Paleontology June 5, 2009
The "Dinosaurs Inside and Out" DVD contains four episodes: "Renaissance of the Dinosaurs," "Land of the Giants," "The Killer Elite," "And Then There Were None." The DVD might be better named "Paleontology Inside and Out" because each episode describes more about how paleontologists research dinosaurs than about the actual dinosaurs. Anyone who wants to be a paleontologist or who wonders how they work in the field and in the lab will find the DVD very worthwhile.

The first episode, "Renaissance of the Dinosaurs," gives a brief history of paleontology and describes some of the very important finds, like Jack Horner's "Egg Mountain." Research to uncover the very first Triassic dinosaurs in Argentina is covered late in the episode.

The second episode, "Land of the Giants," describes how paleontologists study the giant Sauropods of the Jurassic to estimate their weight and how much land area it tool to support the eating habits of a large Sauropod. Other paleontologists study Sauropod trackways to see how they interacted and calculate how fast they could walk.

The third episode, "The Killer Elite," describes how paleontologists find and dig up various Theropod dinosaurs like T. rex and the raptors. The legal battle and auction of "Sue" the T. rex is covered.

The fourth episode, "And Then There Were None," describes various theories about why the dinosaurs became extinct and how paleontologists are researching the extinction. The episode describes how climate change, disease and a killer asteroid could have brought about the end of the dinosaurs.

In 1998 I would have given this DVD five stars. But I bought this DVD, pre-release, from Amazon.

5.0 out of 5 stars Informative! November 22, 2009
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
If you want to learn about Dinosaurs, the people who look for them and how they find them, this is an excellent video. It also describes different views on the extinction of Dinosaurs, as well as new information on how some of them lived. I was also very surprised that it contained information on finds in Argentina! There is also some information on the Jurasic. Most videos concentrate on the Cretaceus, I don't know if it's due to lack of information or the popularity of T-Rex. If you want to learn, not just be entertained I recomend this video.

1.0 out of 5 stars B-O-R-I-N-G!! July 28, 2010
By slcrn2
i am a mother of 3...ages, 2, 3 1/2 & 6yrs. all of my children love dinosaurs, but my 3 1/2yr old son is completely facinated by all things dino. we got this dvd thinking it was going to be educational as well as entertaining as other discovery specials we have enjoyed in the past. WHAT A DISAPOINTMENT! we all sat down as a family to watch...didn't hold anyones attention for more than a minute. i would scan through desperately trying to find something other than a paleontologist talking about fossils or footage of no avail. if you're hoping to watch a movie about discovery of dinosaurs that the life they lived this is not the dvd for you. however, if you want a dvd with interview footage...this is it!!

1.0 out of 5 stars disappointed July 6, 2010
By Riz
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I purchased this video for my son's 4th birthday who loves dinosaurs. He was extremely disappointed when we put the video on and he just wanted to see the dinosaurs. It is all about the digging and searching for the dinsaur bones with talking, talking, talking by men!! He hated it and was very upset. If I could return it, I would!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Pleasantly surprised. February 28, 2012
By achtung
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I had held off on getting this DVD because some on here have said that the quality was low, but being a dinosaur nut and documentary collector, I could not hold off for long.

These programs are more in line with what I used to watch as a young, aspiring paleontologist. In my personal opinion, dinosaur documentaries these days rely too much on advanced computer graphics technology. Some of the technology is fantastic, but the amount of learning is minimal at best. Most of the learning has to do with what the animal is doing on screen at that time. The T-Rex senses danger, the apatosaurus feeds, etc. Not really anything on the overall behaviors of the animals or why we think they behaved in that way.

It is true that the documentaries on this DVD focus on the activities of paleontologists, but you absolutely HAVE to understand how these people work to understand where current hypotheses regarding dinosaurs originated. Otherwise, you are just watching a TV show. This type of in-depth learning is good for kids and I'd encourage parents to let their kids give programs like this a fair shot. Maybe they will want to be scientists one day. I know I did.
