A decent insight into the theory of human evolution
6 August 2009 | by See all my reviews

The second special in the series and the last episode of the show explores the impressive evolutionary leap of man that started with a lemur just after the dinosaur age.

It's weaker than the first special (on dinosaur-like mammals) because it relays more on theory and less on fossils, and doesn't cover the evolution in all parts of the world, but just it's front-runners. There are also some unnecessary wacky vignettes (like the fun but odd Monty Python's "Always Look On the Bright Side of Life" tuned end-credits) here and there, but all in all it is a decent documentary.

Do look for these two specials. They may be better than the rest of the "walk" and are definitely worth of your time even as a separate watch.
