1. To The Ends of the Earth, Part 1 TV-PG CC

Our journey begins on the frozen Arctic Ocean. We follow a pair of courting polar bears revealing a surprisingly tender side. Next stop is the giant Greenland ice cap where waterfalls plunge into the heart of the ice. Further south, the tree-line marks the start of the Taiga forest, containing one third of all trees on earth. Here 25 of the world's largest wolves take on formidable bison prey.

What can I say? From the BBC team responsible for the magnificent Blue Planet and Planet Earth series, "Frozen Planet" is another towering, incredible cinematic documentary achievement. It's an absolute stunner. That I'm grading this 4 instead of 5 is simply a product of how excellent their prior work has been, and how crowded the field is here. While there were some of the same jaw-dropping never-before-seen moments found in Blue Planet and Planet Earth, it also felt like a larger share of the content here was covering more familiar ground. Granted, "Frozen Planet" did it better, but it's still frequently content that I've seen before.

Also seems like the editing here and there was a bit off. Early episodes would discuss locations and populations that would be introduced in later episodes as if they'd never been discussed before -- just felt like they might have had some difficulty allocating content to the episode lengths and subjects they were working with. But it's a very very minor criticism -- hardly noticeable, really.

One final word of caution -- some of the content here is not for the faint of heart. Battles between bears, between seals, and between bison and wolves are violent, bloody affairs. The violence is never gratuitous; but it can be graphic.

I loved every single minute of this great series. David Attenborough's magical voice guides you throughout. The scenes that you will see can be really be borrowed by all the fairy tales in the future. It's a shame that I bought this in standard definition. I cannot spend another 30 bucks to buy this in HD. Amazon why dont you give option for me to buy out the license in HD by paying the difference.

Good job team.

Planet earth and frozen planet are very awesome in terms of footage and learning about our earth and planet. Would recommend the other series and terrains as well in learning.

The quality of the Atenborough video team's work is superb, here as elsewhere. A harsh, vivid sense of winter in the far north.

Breathtaking shots - loved the HD version of this series, however for the amount paid per episode, the cost is a bit high especially since every episode is only around 30 minutes long.

This is of course, like anything David Attenborough puts his name to, an unbelievably high quality production. It's not cheap but it is worth every penny. Educational - phenomenal for kids and adults, non-specialists and biologists (like me). The cinematography is stunning. The film crews, consultants and local support are absolutely the best and it shows in the incredible patience and professionalism taken to get and edit the scenes. Really well researched, compiled and narrated. Just a glorious view of our planet and it's inhabitants in the coldest zones.

I know it takes a love for cold places to tackle Frozen Planet. I like and I look at anything by Sir David Attenborough.
