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, 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. According to the creators, this is due to budget issues and technical limitations, although the episodes that focus on mammals did manage to animate the animals with hair. 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 »

unrealized potential
14 September 2010 | by (Israel) – See all my reviews

This show has a very interesting idea, but unfortunately, its potential was not fully realized. Dinosaurs fascinate most people because they are shrouded in mystery. The CGI reconstruction of the fight scenes are very well done, even though there might be inaccurate in some cases, but in my opinion, that's part of the fun, the fact that you can play with the presentation a bit.

On the other hand, despite the good idea and great CGI rendering, the show's major problem is it's time. The show has 45 minute long episodes and it is very repetitive. The announcer and paleontology experts repeat the facts many times, and you can't help but feel that they think you're dumb. I think this show would of worked better in a 25-30 minute time-frame, giving the great feeling and graphics, but wouldn't be repetitive and boring.
