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.

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..

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.

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.

While this series is not without it's merits - some lovely undersea footage and interesting interaction with some of the native islanders - every episode I've watched so far eventually just turned into "Masakazu goes fishing!" I realize sea food is very important to the Japanese, and I'd imagine they are very interest in each "is that fish edible?" adventures. But I picture a meeting with the producers reviewing the footage. "So, Masakazu. Looks like you cut the diving expedition to go fishing again. In fact you spent nearly all your time in Palau fishing and then eating." So, if you'd like to watch a Japanese guy go fishing over and over this is the series for your. I find the translation of the Japanese voice over fairly hilarious - and SO earnest! I also noted several mis-identification of the fish. Oh well.

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.

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.
