Narrator aside, planet earth is just simply a documentary that I cannot take my eyes off of. The cinematography is (in my opinion) completely unrivaled by any other nature series / shows I've seen. It puts to shame most of the work by Nat Geo, and animal planet, discovery channel, etc. It's just a visually breathtaking show to watch. Make sure and get this in 1080P and watch it on a very good TV. They did a fantastic job at really making the cinematography as perfect as it can be - do yourself a favor and watch it as it should be (in full 1080p, and in its full visual glory)!
I cannot say that I've been interested at all in watching any nature documentaries more than one time. This is the only one that I find to be so involving to watch, that I can watch it many times, and still feel a sense of awe at what the planet and mother nature does. While the structure some may not like (it's fairly whimsical), I like it. It switches from complex to simple, and turns things around, it keeps my attention.
As for the educational value, you get a bit of all kinds of ecosystems, from the deep seas, great plains, to the jungles, caves, etc. It's not a super deep look at everything, but the material is all quite interesting. They are separated by episode, see the list below:
- From Pole to Pole ( a bit of everything )
- Ice Worlds
- Great Plains
- Shallow Seas
- Seasonal Forests
- Ocean Deep
This is in my opinion - the best nature series there is. It's a treat to watch. Do yourself a favor and watch it without any distractions.
Okay, granted, I am a huge fan of Sir David Attenborough. I have all his books, just about all his documentaries, and I can't wait for the blu-ray versions of "Life of Mammals" and "Life of Birds". I'm terribly disappointed that "The Private Life of Plants" isn't available at all as of this writing, and I hope the BBC wakes up and remasters all Attenborough treasures in blu-ray to give them the treatment they deserve.
Reading other reviews and some of the comments, I have to add that I bought a blu-ray player just so I could get "Planet Earth", and I am now busily scouring Amazon.com for other top notch nature documentaries to add to this very special library.
I also have the regular DVD set, and I will keep it for its extras.
Sir David Attenborough, may you live another 100 years, since there is nobody else quite like you. Thank you, thank you, thank you!
