Don't miss this one!,
This review is from: The Blue Planet - Seas of Life Collector's Set (Parts 1-4) (DVD)There isn't a moment in these four DVD's that won't have you gazing in wonder and admiration at the effort and amazing footage captured in this series. Of all the DVD's I own, and that is no small number I assure you, this entire set never sits long enough to get more than a days worth of dust on it. I often watch an episode as I linger in bed waiting for sleep to overtake me. Equally as often, I have to switch it off so I can get sleep--it is that unendingly fascinating. No matter how many times I've watched it, the presentation and simply astounding events they have captured in this series always manage to keep my attention. To even try and relate what the hours of footage reveal would only do it an injustice. I won't even try and I'm sure others could describe it better than I. Let me say this, if you have never seen Blue Planet then you have been sorely missing out. It most certainly contains footage of the marine world that cannot be seen anywhere else. Not merely a few minutes here and there but nearly every minute of the series is unique and nearly unbelievable to behold.
Yes, I realize that it sounds like I'm waxing over this set in glowing terms--and I am, but for good reason. Don't rent these, don't borrow them from a friend and certainly don't just wait around trying to decide if this set is for you. Just click the order button right now and make this set your own. After you do, I think you'll agree it is among the best documentaries ever created, and simultaneously, one of the best DVD investments you've made.

That kinda how I felt too! It's amazingly beautiful! It's great to watch with the whole family too. I watched the Episode Coral Seas with my niece of 6 years old and she was very interested. She had a 2 gallon fish tank for 2 years with 2 fish. Then I ot her 2 snails to have something more interesting but it was too much for the little tank so I bought her a new 5 gallon one and all 4 animals are very happy in there. Now I'm thinking of trying a Saltwater tank again. My niece loves saltwater fish that we see at the pet shops and she loved seeing the coral, anemones, tangs, in this episode.
