Editorial Reviews

Five deadly forces, four turbulent episodes, one powerful surge of entertainment.

Welcome to the ocean's dark side. Building on HISTORY's successful Underwater Universe special, this new limited series goes deep to explore undersea forces that have brought terror and destruction to our planet throughout history. Beneath the surface of our oceans, tides and currents, predators, lethal pressure and killer shockwaves create ongoing and ominous threats. CGI animation, heart-stopping cinematography and submersible expedition footage shed new light on hard science, dramatic historical stories and riveting first-person accounts.

BONUS FEATURES: Feature-length HISTORY Special Underwater Universe

DISC 1: Killer Shockwaves / Predators of the Deep / Tides and Currents Of Death / Fatal Pressure
DISC 2: Bonus HISTORY Special Underwater Universe

This is a typical "modern" documentary series which means ;there is more dramatic camera dancing and loud music than actual science. But the proportion of real information is slightly better than most -- slightly. If the sidebar information was shown just a little bit longer -- or heck, even better if the sidebar info was made main script material -- it would have improved the series 100%.

You can tell that the people who made this series are legitimate documentarians who have been hoodwinked into thinking they need to hold back on the "nerdy" factual presentation. But in exact contradiction, this series is just like the other "modern" junk documentaries that bore you to death with incessant footage of nerdy talking heads.

It's too bad that legitimate producers/directors feel they have to follow the J.J. Abrams "controlled explosion" format of rapidly cutting in and out and bursting blasts of dramatic music.

Note to director: Whoever gave you the suggestion of zooming into tight eyeball shots of the talking heads is not your friend. That is the MOST annoying close-up you can possibly do. Stop doing it. And while you're at it, watch some Attenborough and tell me how many talking heads show up in his supremely great documentaries. Talking heads are boring, boring, boring!

This is just basically a brief preview of what you can really learn with other productions from History and other sources. You don't learn enough to make it worthwhile watching, unless you just want to see if you're interested enough to want to learn more.

I love anything to do with history and especially underwater seaworlds, life, universe, you name it, so I knew this wouldn't let me down. As long as there is the H2 station, I will always be watching history.

This is the entire first season. I am looking forward to the next season when it is released. Great price. Can't go wrong in buying the series or episodes.

I watched this with my 15 year old daughter, and it drew us in from the very beginning. We both learned a lot of things that we didn't know.

Its very well done very interesting. I was not at all familiar with the different aspects of the ocean and this brought that world to life.
