Did You Know?


One of the first documentaries to depict small coelurosaurian dinosaurs such as raptors and oviraptorids with feathers. However we now know that they were much more feathered in real life. Instead of having scaly faces and hands with wing-feathers sticking out of their wrists, these dinosaurs had feathery heads (only their nose remained scaly), and their hands were permanently integrated into their primitive wings, with the wing-feathers lining their entire hand, specifically the line of their middle finger.

When the land crocodilian steals a Saltasaurus egg in the Alpha's Egg segment, the thing fuses halfway into its face. Because of this animation error, they mostly show us the other side of its head, but it is still noticeable. See more »

Too much like a Disney programme
17 October 2011 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Before you start going for my throat, let me point out that this is my opinion and mine only. If you agree, fine, if you don't, fine too.

Now, I had the distinct displeasure of seeing two parts this week in a re-run on UK TV.

The first impression was that the dinosaurs look more like cuddly toys, come plastic bathtub Godzilla look-a-likes. In other words, awful.

There is hardly any interaction of the animals with their environment and personally, I don't like the idea of humanised dinosaurs (ie. giving them names and attach human emotions to such animals).

If you are 10 years old, yes, watch it, you might like it. If you've already grown up, grab a book and save the time doing something useful.

As far as a comparison with 'Walking with Dinosaurs' is concerned, I think it beats the hell out of this programme, never mind any inaccuracies.
