Some claim it's only about killing. Well I watched every episode and some have every little killing , like Jungle or Ice Words. But I see majestic trees, flowers, scenery. I see the amazing bond between two penguins and the care for their chicks. It looks more like 'love' than I witness between most humans.
Some claim that we should not watch it but go out DOING something about protecting the environment. Well nobody told me this film was forcing us to save the environment. Although I think and hope that watching this magic series does encourage more people into thinking about their own life in context with out planet than not watching it would do.
Some claim it may be dull or shallow.
This film never claims to be a hardcore scientific nature doc. It shows the planet, areas of the planet more or less linked together and gives brief GLIMPSES of the flora and fauna in those areas! If you want more info, more science, more data, go to a library or university! I saw it for what it is. And for me it more than deserves a 10 out of 10
