Tired of These Fictional Accounts
14 September 2008 | by (somewhere around here) – See all my reviews

These so-called documentaries about dinosaurs -- and in this case, the creatures that came before them -- are wearing very thin. My problem with them is that they are combining scientific theory with utter fictional hogwash story-telling.

Look, I don't mind that CG is able to give us a peek at how the world might have appeared those millions of years ago. Lay it on me . . . with a disclaimer up front that this is conjecture based on paleo evidence. But when some jive-ass writer starts telling me what the storms were like, and which animals were where in the food chain, and how lizards enjoyed baked spider, I just want to puke. There is no evidence for much of what appears on the screen. They're simply concocting a story, taking what science they have, adding what they think people want to see, and creating a farce.

And how many times do we have to sit through stories about T. Rex??? And why do they always have to be screaming??? I want to be educated about these animals. Unfortunately, these shows do nothing but get me frustrated.
