Trivia:
One of the most notable aspects of this documentary is that it pictures the raptor dinosaurs with feathers, even though their distribution has been proven incorrect since the show's creation. They are also more hairlike than feather-like, but this has its justification in that the available CGI technology at the time couldn't render realistic looking feathers.See more »
Goofs:
Revealing mistakes: When the crocodile-like Rutiodon blasts out of the water at the Coelophysis, the tip of its tail rises above the surface for a couple of frames, but there are no splashes or anything else that would indicate that it really breaks the surface.See more »

One of the very best of the Discovery Channel movies, 16 September 2001
Author: McQualude from North Carolina

Perhaps the best effort to date of dinosaur documentaries... "When Dinosaurs Roamed America" takes us back in time and presents the most well known of American dinosaurs in their day to day trials and fight for survival.

My daughter and I loved this movie and watch it again and again. The special effects are not quite up to Jurassic Park but they are the best yet in any documentary I've seen. My only criticism is that the movie is too short, just as it starts to pull you in, it's off to another timeline and new dinosaurs.

Overall a great movie for youngsters, though it will leave serious dinosaur fans wanting more, much more.
