In depth look at extinct species hosted by Superman!
10 May 2005 | by (The World Of Movies) – See all my reviews

This one's a pretty hard thing to find. Had I not run into it during a video search, I never would have known that Christopher Reeve took part in something as this. The little learning show goes through many enactments created for the program, and looks at a few clips from movies depicting the ancient species. Reeve is nice, and well spoken with his commentary . Other elements include interviews with scientists and random fans. You won't find stuff like this anymore. Now, programs like this are almost as boring as a waiting room. Getting Christopher Reeve to host was a fun idea, and thusly, watching the historic facts is even better with Reeves' voice leading us on. A nice thing to watch with Reeves as himself, and just as entertaining as his definitive Superman. all in all, a nice little educational program, very big on reflecting the times and technology in that decade.
