Planet Earth is the best nature/wildlife series on the planet. No joke. This 11-parter, done as a partnership between the BBC and the Discovery Channel, is filled so many unimaginable images, startling behaviors, and high-definition eye candy, that you’ll finally be able to justify that HDTV purchase.
Thankfully, the entire series is now available on DVD (and Blu-Ray, and HD-DVD), and there’s an accompanying book to go along with it. If you missed a few parts, it’s time to catch up. If you missed the entire series, it’s your loss, because you’ll never again have the chance to say ‘wow’ so many times in a single hour. Want more? How about:
- $25 million budget
- Five years in production
- 2,000 days in the field
- 40 cameramen
- 200 locations
Seriously, if you haven’t seen it, do, because everyone else already has.
