Amazing stories told through very flawed cameras. 4,5-5/5 for PQ? Seri
20 November 2012
Excerpt: I don't know what these reviewers were watching, but it can't have been the discs I saw, because those are everything but jaw-dropping, unless he meant it in a bad way. I am not saying the PQ is a disaster, but it's nowhere near reference quality. That's a FACT. Plain and simple. I get it. It's tough to film this stuff, but it's still not reference quality, and I just judge the PQ by what it is, not the circumstances.
Excerpt: The only real negative thing I can say is this is very slow loading with no bookmark or resume feature. Quite possible the slowest loading BluRay I own, thought my player was broken at first. A notch below Planet Earth but another great product from the BBC, who is an expert in this type of production. This was a blind buy for me but at $15 at Best Buy trading in an old DVD to their upgrade program it's a winner.
Summary: This is a great series from the BBC which covers different aspects of human
life on planet Earth, such as how we eat, how we build our houses, how we work
together with animals, etc. It will show you life from a perspective different
from your own!
Conclusion: First of all, this is not something I'd usually watch. Attenborough's documentaries are not my first choice on television. However, this incredible series is gripping, insightful, and best of all, perfectly shot. Following several small communities all over the world, 'Human Planet' shares the vital life skills of these people who survive on the earth, and show the human body, pushed to the limit in extreme conditions and overcoming adversity.
