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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Refreshing Sea Life Documentary September 17, 2014
By Pat S.
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I love this series of videos by Mr. Nagata, who is obviously more interested in Earth's natural wonders than fame and $$$. I know, it is not a high-budget production, and the background music is sometimes a bit odd, but there are many unique forms of sea life explained and filmed in detail, and it is refreshing that plugs for evolution are not constantly being shoved in the viewer's face. It is also wonderful to learn about fishing methods of native peoples, and the local cuisine in the region of Baja California. Mr. Nagata is game for trying any new dish he is offered while checking out the geography.

4.0 out of 5 stars For what it's worth.... October 28, 2012
By Laura
I must say, I loved the main narrator, Dan Green. He did a wonderful job with that terrible script! For those of you expecting a "Discovery Channel-esque" type of film, look elsewhere. For those who can look past the flaws of this series and appreciate the scenes (and Dan's soothing voice) then I would say give it a go. They got a lot of great footage and had a lot to share about different cultures and their relationship with the ocean.

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.

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..
