Storyline

They were the ultimate fighters -- prehistoric beasts who walked the earth millions of years ago. With cunning and strategy, they hunted their prey -- transforming the prehistoric world into a battlefield. Today, archaeologists are uncovering these battlefields -- and are gaining startling new insight into how quick thinking, maneuverability, and striking at the exact moment separated the weak from the strong. Blow by blow, each episode will dissect these battles, uncovering a predatory world far more calculated and complex than we originally thought. Written by Official Site

Trivia

Despite the fossil evidence that suggests that the raptor-like dinosaurs were covered (at least partially) with feathers or proto-feathers, this show continues to show them with scales, a rather obsolete image nowadays. The animals in question are only shown to have worn feathers on the back of their heads, on their arms, and along their tails, or, in one case, nowhere. See more »

Goofs

The show constantly depicted carnivorous dinosaurs with pronated hands (with their palms facing down or back). These animal's were unable to twist their hands this way. Fossil evidence shows they constantly held them with the palms facing inward. To turn their palms downward, they would have had to twist their whole arms. See more »

Enjoy watching the dinosaurs, but please plug your ears...
20 November 2010 | by (London) – See all my reviews

A sad show where what are often presented leading minds in their respective fields talk about wild hypothesis and theories rarely saying it could all be a "maybe", often boasting them with a "it's now believed" when it's not and pretending to understand everything from just a few clues (nearly everything is a "know" and not a "could be"). It's disgusting to see how they show no respect for science whatsoever, they don't even think about the fact that they are talking to people who don't have any kind of real knowledge about these subjects and could take everything they say as pure gold.

The CG isn't bad at all compared to other dinosaur shows (I refuse to describe them as documentaries) and the animations are kind of good too. In the end... since there is a huge lack of serious dinosaur shows and documentaries out there I forced myself to watch this as long as I could see decent CG reconstructions of dinosaurs. I also liked the few reliable informations they gave (even if I still have to double check them...).

If you want to watch this just please keep in mind that this isn't something to take too seriously... the science in it is forced and "Dinosaur George" should go study some more for the sake of the people that believe everything he says...

P.S. Why every time I watch an American show/documentary about these animals they only use superlatives to describe them? Everything must be the BIGGEST! STRONGEST! THE MOST EVIL! THE MOST FEROCIOUS! even when they are not...
