Finally, after waiting years for several shows to come out on DVD from Discovery Channel. Yes, we get these shows all on two DVDs! Including the very popular Dinosaur Planet. Here is a list is a shows that are one the two DVDs.

- Valley of the T-Rex

- When Dinosaurs Roamed America

- Utah's Dino Graveyard

- Dinosaur Planet (includes all 4 episodes!!!)

- The Mystery Dinosaur

- Dinosaurs: Return To Life

- T-Rex: New Science, New Beast

Trust me, this is a must have for anyone who loves dinosaurs and loves to learn about them and be entertained. Buy this set! It's worth the cost, which is pretty good. It's eight hours of pure entertainment!

The Essential Dinosaur Pack is more than 8 hours of dinosaur programs by the Discovery Channel. Lots of dinosaur action, groundbreaking discoveries, dinosaur facts, stories and just plain fun. Great for the kiddies and adults and something that makes a great gift for anybody, anytime, anywhere. The shows cover everything from telling us the story of the T. Rex, and the mystery of how he lived his life, to the ideas of bringing dinosaurs back to life via the DNA of birds. Raptors, fossils and birds, this is a wonderful peek into dinosaurs and how we see them.

I hope I don't get blasted for this review, but wanted to warn parents of very young dinosaur enthusiasts that these DVDs may be too graphic for them. I bought this pack due to all of the great reviews, and I don't regret the purchase. However, I do regret not viewing it first, before I started showing it to my almost 3-year-old son. I started showing him Dinosaur Planet, as I had read in another review that Dr. Scott (from Dinosaur Train) was featured in the show. The first Dinosaur Planet episode features a Velociraptor named White Tip whose pack is killed. There are several very graphic scenes of predators killing and eating other dinosaurs. We had to turn off the video after a particularly scary (for a 3 year old) scene. My son has seen all of the episodes of Walking with Dinosaurs and Chased by Dinosaurs & he was not disturbed by any of the scenes in those shows.

I think the computer animation and stories on these DVDs are pretty good. I will be holding on to this and showing it to my son in a few years, when he is ready. Again, just to be clear, I am not blaming anyone but myself for not screening this ahead, but know that there are probably other busy moms and dads out there that could make the same mistake and want to give them a heads up.

Where as the BBC series "Walking with Dinosaurs",(also including "Chased by Dinosaurs", "Walking with Monsters" and "Allosaurus", nicely takes us right there amongst these glorious beasts,(many amazingly convincing and lifelike), the "Discovery Essential Dinosaur Pack" brings us neatly back to the present so we can understand the "study" of dinosaurs.
Therefore, not only do we get to see even more "convincing" dinosaurs rampaging all over the place,(don't worry, there's plenty!), we also get a great deal of scientific "hands on" documentary insight from many of the best known paleontologists around, as well as plenty of step by step analysis and documentation.
This goes perfectly with the BBC series.

The essential dinosaur pack is very well done with a lot of science explained (especially in the creating a dinosaur episode). However, the one point that I found a little odd was that the graphics were not what I was expecting. After watching Jurassic Park and especially the 'Walking With' series from the BBC, the graphics and lack of constant interaction with their environment made the dinosaurs depicted look at times like cartoons, not the realistic creatures I was expecting. A good series, and well worth it, especially with so much on the 2 discs, but could have been better.

First, I grew up with a paleontologist, so I have a great deal of respect for this series of documentaries. If you are looking for something scientifically credible but fun too, this is the set. Second, I have a 9 year old son who is autistic and "obsessed" with dinosaurs. He usually has a hard time staying still for any length of time, but he will watch this entire collection in one day without moving from the couch. Not only that, but he is learning a great deal and asking questions that come from the material he watches for me to look up. We own just about every dinosaur book and video out there, and this is the best one that we have found so far.

We ordered this for my then 5 year old son. I thought he would have to grow into it a bit, but he LOVED it from day one. I am surprised at how much he comprehends and remembers, and he loves sharing his new knowledge with friends and family. I would encourage this video series for any serious dinosaur lover.
