Trivia

The show depicts the Asian troodontid dinosaur Mei long as an about 2 meter long, scale-covered, "generic" troodontid. Its original fossil was at first thought to have been a juvenile, due to its long, slender legs and small size, so the show increased its stature to adult size. We now know that Mei long was indeed only about half a meter long as an adult, it had very long legs, and was covered in feathers, making it look like a small bird. See more »

Goofs

The CGI version of the Microraptor has its primary feathers incorrectly attach to the wrist, a very amateurish mistake. However when the physical Microraptor puppet is shown, it correctly has its primaries growing out of its middle finger. See more »

very good
11 February 2007 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

The series is educational, interesting and funny. I got the box set and i enjoy watching it. Alomst everyone in my family does, we have not had the disk that long but it has already been watched millions of times, and I'm surprised it hasn't broken. Each episode focuses on a different time so no matter which part of the prehistoric history you are interested in, it will be there with plenty of fun clips and facts. Another bonus is that the animation is excellent and at times believable. As well as facts there is a story with each one, sometimes sad and sometimes scary. For anyone this is a great series and well worth watching!
