What can I say? From the BBC team responsible for the magnificent Blue Planet and Planet Earth series, "Frozen Planet" is another towering, incredible cinematic documentary achievement. It's an absolute stunner. That I'm grading this 4 instead of 5 is simply a product of how excellent their prior work has been, and how crowded the field is here. While there were some of the same jaw-dropping never-before-seen moments found in Blue Planet and Planet Earth, it also felt like a larger share of the content here was covering more familiar ground. Granted, "Frozen Planet" did it better, but it's still frequently content that I've seen before.

Also seems like the editing here and there was a bit off. Early episodes would discuss locations and populations that would be introduced in later episodes as if they'd never been discussed before -- just felt like they might have had some difficulty allocating content to the episode lengths and subjects they were working with. But it's a very very minor criticism -- hardly noticeable, really.

One final word of caution -- some of the content here is not for the faint of heart. Battles between bears, between seals, and between bison and wolves are violent, bloody affairs. The violence is never gratuitous; but it can be graphic.

I loved every single minute of this great series. David Attenborough's magical voice guides you throughout. The scenes that you will see can be really be borrowed by all the fairy tales in the future. It's a shame that I bought this in standard definition. I cannot spend another 30 bucks to buy this in HD. Amazon why dont you give option for me to buy out the license in HD by paying the difference.

Good job team.

This is of course, like anything David Attenborough puts his name to, an unbelievably high quality production. It's not cheap but it is worth every penny. Educational - phenomenal for kids and adults, non-specialists and biologists (like me). The cinematography is stunning. The film crews, consultants and local support are absolutely the best and it shows in the incredible patience and professionalism taken to get and edit the scenes. Really well researched, compiled and narrated. Just a glorious view of our planet and it's inhabitants in the coldest zones.

Watch as a polar bear goes a-courting. Breath taking scenes, wildlife, what is not to like.
A great watch for exploring sights rarely seen by the lower 48 states. Great for educational
purposes without the dull narrative found in most educational videos.

David Attenborough is always a good narrator, but this series probably should have been a little shorter. While the Arctic and Antarctic zones are full of life, this series tends to keep reusing some elements to try and extend the experience. Great film making is evident here, and i'd still recommend watching this if you love nature shows.

I gave it 5 stars because it gave a lot of detailed information often not seen in similar marine life videos. This video covered many marine life not seen before and more in-depth information on marine life seen before but in a whole new way. Seeing the exhausting preparations that were made for getting the many scenes and shots of marine life in a frozen environment was awesome. I would highly recommend this video for all ages.

The photography is excellent and it is a joy to watch the wonders of the world like I have never seen before, also the information given is not super in depth but just enough to keep me interested, but that part is all personal as I like more in-depth information, but all in all a great show and I would recommend it to my friends.
