Anyone watching this?  Yes, it's G-Rated "Wild Kingdom" but the photography/filmography is stunning.  I'm not sure how they captured some of this.  It's in brilliant HD and I'm watching it on a 65" screen and it's just dripping and saturated with color.  I think I watched two of these episodes already.

I watched a couple episodes to blend the interests of a 1.5 yo and a 38 yo. Seemed fair and equitable to all parties

Watched part of the first one last night.  The cinematography is stunning- loved the shots of birds and dolphins attacking the school of sardines.  Some of the birds completely disappear in the shoal, then come out with a sardine.  The climate change narration is a bit over the top, though.  Saying that the earth used to be an "unchanging Eden" is just flat wrong.

It's clearly from the point of "man is bad", no question.  The vast majority of it is more subjective showing various animals in their natural habitat, etc. but it always goes back to the fact that humans are fecking it up for everyone.  I don't necessarily have an issue with someone making that point but it's made over and over and over and over.

I’ve heard lots of people express how upset they are about the narrative. I heard it before I watched. Solid meh there. Just watch nature

I heard on NPR yesterday it took 3 yrs to get the shots of the Siberian Tiger. I watched forests last night and enjoyed it like the others.

Yes, there is a narrative but I don’t think it deters from the cinematography.

Agreed.  It's just amazing to watch.  In one episode (where mountain lions rarely come in contact, I think), the voiceover mentions that the animals came very close to their 'hidden cameras'.  I can only imagine that cameras were set up in various places and then the wait..................

And the narrative isn’t as bad as some where they anthropomorphize everything
