Quite a find, and even something 'non-nature watchers' would even find very intriguing. Brilliant, colorful stuff!!!!!! Better than a lot of Hollywood movies nowadays too for sure :^)
So why do I give it only four stars? I have one complaint that prospective customers should be aware of. Every DVD and Blu-ray disk has several minutes of garbage that you have to sit through before you can get to what you want to watch. Fast-forward is disabled and you have to just sit through it. These disks are no exception; there is the usual stupid warning about copying, institutional advertising from the BBC, advertisements of other disks they'd like you to buy, and so on. But why do I complain, since all disks have this? Because these Blu-ray disks have disabled the feature that lets the player remember your place when you turn it off. Each disk has four 50-minute episodes. You probably will not watch them all at once. It would be nice if you could leave the disk in the machine and the next time you turn it on, automatically start in the place where you left off. Most disks can do that, but the BBC decided not to permit it here. So you will have to sit through all the same garbage each time. Why? Ask the BBC.
Incredible visual quality. You see sure kills turn into upsets, and seeming failures become successful takedowns. Of course there's also some more straightforward kills and failures, but this series really gives you some insight into how hard it is for some predators. Sometimes, when they get desperate, there's footage of really bizarre strategies to try and get food.
I've seen a lot of nature documentaries, but I think this is going to be my favorite.
