I highly recommend this. Its on for 4 hrs tonight and will be on next Sunday and other dates. You can purchase the 11 part documentary for $49 at the Discovery website. I dont like starting threads. Its a very rare thing for me to do so. But I see many that are kind of not worthy of a thread and I think this is worthy. Lots of great info and incredible footage. Sigourney Weaver does a magnificant job and puts you there. Its all over the Earth. Deserts, oceans, forests, all kinds of wildlife and great info. A must see. Some examples, bats leaving there caves and being chased by predatory birds, the Cicada's coming out every 17 yrs and the short life they live and their contribution to the world around them, Great White sharks and seals in their environment, the great forests and deserts and trees that were here 3000 yrs before the birth of Christ, life at the bottom of the sea, and on and on. Just fabulous.

We have Planet Earth with the man. It's the BBC version. We have watched it quite a bit.

I subbed for 8th grade science a few weeks ago, and the kids LOVED the episode I showed that day. They were talking a lot during the video, but it was all questions, etc.

The movie roles must of dried up for Sigourney. When actors take jobs like this that's usually the reason. It's like when long time movie actors go and do tv. It's because the movie offers stopped coming.

I've seen some of these Planet Earth episodes, and thought they were the most well done of this type of documentary. Weaver, best known for the "Aliens" movie series, may have been chosen because many of the regions and the appearance or life cycle of the creatures that inhabit them seem mysteriously alien to most viewers. Or, she's a crusty old hag - like you said?

As the world gets smaller and the science gets better, there is always gonna be better footage it seems. this series is very well done and educational.

i'll never forget the footage of the the great whites jumping out of the water hitting those fake seal baits being trolled...just amazing. was on another show.

Good to see the discovery channel being the discovery channel again with this series!!!
