I buy a 4k disc monthly and watch once with a group of old folks and then sell the movie......not a chance that will happen with these discs....not for twice what I paid.
The filmmakers were able to get incredibly close to each animal thanks to innovative remote cameras.
Further advancements in technology also meant discovering previously unobtainable “wildlife dramas.”
We can see, hear, and admire these dramas better than ever, with clearer, brighter, and more comprehensive photography than has been possible prior to this.
Better yet, the progress Attenborough heartily expounds is more than evident on screen. Covering islands, mountains, jungles, deserts, grasslands, and cities, “Planet Earth II” literally covers a lot of ground in its seven episodes (the final episode is a “making of”), always with an eye toward beauty and our quickly changing environments. Impossible sights are enticingly strung together, forming stories like nothing we’ve ever seen before.
There are 6 episodes in this series- I devoured these pretty quickly and my only complaint is I wish there was more! There is a 3rd disc with bonus content - I'll have to see what is on that!
**(As the box says, make sure you have a 4K UHD TV, 4K UHD compatible HDMI cord, AND a 4K UHD Blu-ray player before buying this version- a normal blu-ray player won't play a 4K UHD disc!)**
I know we are only 1 episode in at the time of this review, but I really enjoyed the variety of animals that was shown on the first episode. I felt that they went above and beyond to showcase animals that weren't on the original Planet Earth. My husband and mines favorite part was the hatching of the sea iguanas. It was almost like a sporting event; we were rooting for the iguana babies yelling, "RUN BABIES! RUN! GOGOGOGO!!"
David Attenborough. Long may he live. I don't know a single person as dedicated to his work as this man. I won't even stage a guess at how old he is because I don't care. His voice is magical. We may have to digitize his voice so he can narrate every nature show from now until forever.
Anyway, bottom line, if you enjoy nature programming and you have the right equipment, you will not be disappointed in this series.
