1.0 out of 5 stars TERRIBLE!!!!! January 14, 2011
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
If you want a DVD on nature this is the worst DVD ever!!! It is all about fishing and where the fish are sold. I was very disappointed in this DVD since I bought for my child who loves the ocean and wanted to learn about sea turtles and fish not how to catch and eat them!

1.0 out of 5 stars Disappointing May 1, 2011
The photography is beautiful, but the narration is embarrassingly ridiculous -- and frequently unrelated to what is actually being shown onscreen at the time -- as if the person responsible for synching the audio and video did not understand the language being spoken so did not know what images should go with which words. The voice-over translation for Masakazu Nagata is flat and awkward. It is not worth the investment of your time (or money).

3.0 out of 5 stars Ok BUT July 14, 2010
Would be a lot better if it were not for the extremely annoying music and the celestial vocalizations in the background. The language interpreter for the Japanese oceanographer sounds like he is waving pompoms while he translates, and the narrator is a tad obnoxious.

It is too bad because it does have some great underwater scenes.

1.0 out of 5 stars Save your money!! September 24, 2011
Save your money! This series is terrible. The people are speaking Japanese but the narration is in English and it runs from ridiculous to ludicrous. Most of the time the narration is not even close to being synched what you are seeing on screen. The music was stolen from some bad b-rated movie in from the 1970s. If you buy it, watch it with the sound off.

1.0 out of 5 stars Discover Planet Ocean January 9, 2011
By Pankaj
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I think the title and the way it was shown on the Video was misleading and I ended up buying a wrong product. I had heard about a new series from Discovery and BBC as a follow-on to Planet Earth and decided to purchase it on Amazon. When I received it I realized that it was from a different company and had no relation to the excellent work done by Discovery. The big capital letter name for the video is misleading.

1.0 out of 5 stars HILL - AIR - E - US!! December 25, 2009
OMG, this DVD set is so poorly produced that it will make you split your side laughing!
Misleading us by putting the word "DISCOVER" on the front appears to be a good marketing ploy.
If you want a good laugh at hoaky voice over narration and repetitive jibberish about nothing meaningfull... "buy this DVD set"! It's almost worth the 18 bucks for the chuckles you'll get.
Cheap Asian garbage cinematography.

5.0 out of 5 stars Discover Planet Ocean, a trip through Baja California January 2, 2014
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
It wasn't exactly what I was expecting- I originally thought that it was a Planet Ocean series of Nagata's that covered many different locations around the Pacific, not just Baja California- but it was still an interesting, enthusiastic show. Cheerful Nagata is a great host, and the chuckle-enducing Japanese-to-English or sometimes Spanish-to-English-to-Japanese translations of science, history, and jokes are, to me, part of the experience, and one of the reasons which I bought it. (Even the title is a slightly funny translation.) While the show has the feel of a very small-scale venture compared with many other nature shows, truly interesting and surprising things are explained and dwelt upon. The human element, too, is never forgotten, and the people who work close to the ocean are always greeted as friends; Nagata is invited onto their boats, their jobs, to their meals, and inside their homes. A good show- I'll look for episodes..

This series is not only an excellent educational presentation of the variety of sea life in different regions of the world. It is also very educational about cultural aspects of the human populations dependent on sea life in the different regions explored. As well as techniques that native populations use to harvest food sustainably.
For those who prefer to coddle their children into believing that fish are to look at and not be eaten by all means go buy a Pixar movie. This is very interesting stuff for those looking to learn.

I was looking for another version of the planet ocean, but got this one. The rpice was good, so no harm. Just looking at the color and the enviroment. Not the actors.
