A superb documentary for any of those who never stop imagining.
9 March 2007 | by (Philippines) – See all my reviews

I can still count the days when I watched this documentary series by Discovery Channel, from its pilot episode to the separate ones. Okay, I haven't watched them all yet, but I love this series. Although completely fantasy, "The Future is Wild" is can give as a glimpse of what may happen many years from now. The documentary series is also fresh with ideas. The idea of man sent to another planet, and send space probes to Earth to view life, is complex, if not science fiction, genius. The animals that are supposed to live on Earth during our departure are somewhat bizarre, but very memorable to me. I manage to draw them on paper when I'm bored, and label them by their names. Sometimes I even create my own "future beasts". This series may be based on Dougal Dixon's book "After Man", since they both give us a view of the future.

This is a really memorable series to me. I would recommend this to anyone, if it is still running on the Discovery Channel.
