Editorial Reviews

Continuing in the footsteps of TLC's signature series - PaleoWorld - this ambitious project takes viewers on a global journey to five lost worlds, each home to a unique cast of dinosaur characters, many only just discovered. Each of the five locations presents the opportunity to film headline-hitting discoveries for the first time, and tell the definitive story of the dinosaurs and their lost world on a truly global scale.

Rumors of a lost civilization and lost gold once sent explorers to the lush South American jungles. Now the sought-after treasure is the remains of a 250-million-year-old predator that conquered South America after the worst natural disaster in history.

Sixty-eight million years ago, prehistoric Montana was a rainy, tropical paradise for sophisticated and bizarre groups of dinosaurs. In this mosaic of ancient life, one creature reigned supreme--the terrifying and fearsome T-rex.

A primeval river in the heart of a landmass known as Pangea was the home of a creature called Mokele Mobombe. For over a century, explorers searched Africa for this elusive beast until they discovered its 200-million-year-old remains.

In the searing heat of Australia and frozen wastes of Antarctica, the dinosaurs that ruled these lands were the toughest creatures that ever lived. Follow a path of over 3000 footprints left in soft clay, proof that dinosaurs lived in the deadly Outback.

Far beneath the ruins of Europe's glorious civilizations lies the even older world of the dinosaur. One of France's foremost paleontologists attempts to solve a 150-year-old mystery on the site of the largest known dinosaur nest in the world.

If you are looking for the spectacular computer animated dinosaurs that are found in 'Walking With Dinosaurs', look somewhere else. This set doesn't have them. What it does have, however, is a lot of wonderful, up to date, fact based information on dinosaurs not found anywhere else. It is enough to keep a five year olds' attention, and intelligent enough to pull me into watching it as well.
I have a five year old son who is absolutely ga-ga for dinosaurs, and voraciously watches anything he can find on them, pours over books about them, spends hours putting together and taking apart puzzles of them, colors endless quantities of pictures of them - in short, anything with a dinosaur on the cover he wants. When he saw this, there was nothing for it but to buy it. I have to say I don't regret it for a minute.
To be honest, I purchased this not expecting much. I had read reviews of others and thought it would be inferior to anything else out there, but might keep him occupied for a while. To be fair, the animation is substandard, you can tell that it was made for tv, and the editing isn't the greatest. However, I found myself watching it with him, facinated dispite myself. The information is presented in an easy to listen to maner, with graphs, charts, and animation that(while substandard compared to Walking With Dinosaurs)gives you a feel for the size and weight these creatures must have had. And, being that they were produced in 2000, the information is more up to date than most everything else out there with facinating new discoveries.
True, there is repetion of content from one DVD to the next, but the repetion deals more with the basics of dinosaur evolution and the relevent time periods than repeating information about the individual dinosaurs themselves.

Both my 3 year old son and brother majoring in Animal Science completely enjoyed watching this series. It is detailed enough to keep an adult viewer interested. It also has enough computer animation and storyline to keep a younger viewer entertained while being educated.

I didn't think this DVD would be as good as "Walking With Dinosaurs", but it's different. The animation isn't as good (it's good enough) but there is a lot of information you wouldn't have heard before, it has the very latest information.
If your interested in Dinosaurs get this DVD, if you're more interested in good animation get "Walking With Dinosaurs". I think both are worth buying.

I am still facinated by dinosaurs, and enjoy learning about them. I have read a lot of books, now I like to watch the DVDs so I have purchased several. Some are more entertaining and I believe for younger people. These are for older people who want to know and understand dinosaurs. We can't know exactly how they looked or lived. But the Paleoentologists can try to understand by following the evidence. These dvds are pretty good with the information. In a few years some of it may be proven wrong, but you will have learned about dinosaurs that have been found in the past few years, that information wont change. This set has dinosaurs that I have never heard of, and talks about some I have heard of but couldn't find in books. The dinosaurs do not look or move as well as the ones in Walking With, but that is not the basis for these DVDs. They are to inform and I think they do a good job. I also like Jeff Goldblum's voice, it does fade out in a few places, but nothing to bad.

This series isn't for someone with a short attention span, it goes into depth, and isn't quite as well-paced as Walking with Dinosaurs. There isn't quite as much action, and the 3d effects aren't that great looking here and now in 2010. With that said, it can often to into greater depth than Walking with Dinosaurs, and if you love dinosaurs and don't need fancy 3d effects, I highly recommend it for your collection.

When Dinosaurs Ruled was TLC's solution to the cancellation of their other popular documentary series on prehistoric life, called PaleoWorld. If you haven't seen it and are at all interested in this set then I highly recommend looking for it, although it's hard to find nowadays. Paleoworld and When Dinosaurs Ruled have a lot of overlap, in themes, information, and layout.
When Dinosaurs Ruled features five episodes, around 45 minutes each. The episodes mainly focus on particular regions of the world during particular ages, and looks at the dinosaurs from there. There are some great interviews with world renowned Paleontologists, including Bob Bakker, Phil Currie, Paul Sereno, and many others. Jeff Goldblum, whom the show clearly snatched up after the success of Jurassic Park 1 and 2, provides the narration. I've found there's some controversy regarding his narration style, but for me it works. He offers a lively narrative, even if he sometimes mispronounces complicated names or places. The show often displays earth on a digitized map and demonstrates the morphing of the continents over time, such as the break up of Pangea. Once in awhile some decent animations or animatronics of dinosaurs make an appearence, but mostly its fact based and interview oriented, unlike the BBC series Walking With Dinosaurs, which is completely different from what is here.
As I mentioned earlier, the series is very similar to TLC's PaleoWorld. Almost all of the music is taken straight from that series, as well as significant information on select dinosaurs, such as Cryolophosaurus, Carnotaurus, and Tyrannosaurus Rex, among others. It does offer plenty of other information on new dinosaurs and prehistoric areas (such as cretaceous Australia) never featured in PaleoWorld.
