If the sound effects seem overamped, George Fenton's score is always on the money, adding humor and suspense at crucial moments (martial drums for the mud skippers, woozy brass for the Darwin's beetle). Nonetheless, delicate sensibilities may find some sequences disturbing, as when Komodo dragons feed on a water buffalo or when a leopard seal dines on a penguin (according to Attenborough, the Komodo siege caused the camera operators "emotional turmoil"). More often, the filmmakers capture the moment of impact before moving on. The set comes complete with 10 featurettes on the four-year production. --Kathleen C. Fennessy

Netscorer, you are incorrect in your statement. 1080i is NOT visually better than... Read More

|Do they both have the same extras?||
Unfortunately it sounds like the Oprah one will have more extras and an extra episode. The David Attenborough one will have 10 episodes and the Oprah one will have 11.

|this or planet earth?||
If you can only have one, I'd go with Life. As I said in my review, Planet Earth jumps around a lot and goes for breadth instead of depth. It tries to cover the entire planet in the series. Life has more spectacular views of a smaller selection of animals and locations.
