Nigel explores the ancient coal forests of 300 million years ago searching for giant dragonflies, and herbivorous millipedes which are over 3 meters long existing in an atmosphere 3 times richer in oxygen than modern day.
Lots of giant dinosaurs and beasties in this creative dvd! Well done!
Nigel really brings the environments and animals to life. He supplies the magic and charm that makes the show successful. Show spans 6 different type periods and environments. The CGI is not 2015 technology but vastly better than WWD. Best not to figure out how they can create worm holes at will and travel back and fourth. I guess Nigel has the energy output of a Giant Star or Black hole in his bag pack or something?? This is not important. Ground keeper Bob is pretty funny too. Too bad they never were green lighted for a second season but this is big fun for the whole family.
I think I will try out chased by Dinosaurs next.
The show frames itself as a real wild-life perserve with "unique" animals, simply brought back from varing time periods. Though there is an aspect of sci-fi time travel, it is a minor detail, allowing Marven to show the science, and aspects of these animals, and the period and geography of where they lived.
I also liked that a vetenarian and game keeper were also involved in caring for these animals, furthering the science and the continuing the story. There are still enough thrills and danger invoved to keep you ointerested whilel you learn something. The effects are seamless and veyi believable, Like whe marven holds a giagantic prehistoric scorpion, from 300 million-years-ago, in his hand. Irecomendthe for "family entertainment," but caution against it for children under six-years old.
**On a side note, if you have really young children (under 10 perhaps?) you may want to watch it with them, but Prehistoric Park presents extinct animals just as any nature show would, so keep in mind it's tasteful.
Of course, you have to ignore the fact that a few individuals do not constitute a viable breeding population, not to mention the fact that the "time gate" consists of two stick-like instruments which Nigel just turns on and sticks into the ground to create a "doorway". But if you can suspend your disbelief, this show is great fun.
Of all the things my 4 and 6 year old daughters like to watch (over and over and over and over), this is by far one of the most bearable for Mommy. Highly recommended, we watch it almost every night.
