Trivia

After the show had been broadcast, one of the paleontologists, Matt Wedel, wrote an angry blog entry about how the production company, Dangerous Ltd., quote-mined him in an episode he appeared in, which ended up forwarding false information to the viewers about the "second brain theory" in sauropods (long-necked plant-eating dinosaurs). He originally claimed that this is an outdated theory, and that scientists are still unsure about the functions of the so-called "second brain" (actually a widened area on the spinal cord, which is common in many animals), however in the final cut, he seemingly said the theory still held water. The Discovery Channel (who aired the show but did not directly produce it) later went back to revise the segment. See more »

Goofs

The show depicts the giant flying reptile Quetzalcoatlus being covered in scales. Actually, the animal was most likely covered in what can be described as hair. This was common knowledge at the time it was made. See more »

interesting and of overwhelming visual strength
17 April 2015 | by (Germany) – See all my reviews

It's been a while after release but the renderings for this production in my opinion are still some of the most impressive dinosaur-renderings ever made. The quality of the reconstructions, animations, lighting, camera - the scenery as a hole - culminate in pictures of unprecedented visual power. Only pity is that they are repeated over and over throughout the different parts of the series. But these repetitions are broken by cuts into interviews with established and well known paleontologists and other renderings usefully visualizing the explained biological processes. The interviews are over all interesting, sometimes even funny and sometimes well speculative. Underlying almost the hole time is an extensive musically arrangement that adds a sense of drama and may sometimes be a bit too much, but - spoken for myself - never stressed me out. I enjoyed the series for it's interesting information as well as for it's impressive 3D-Visuals ... and even six years after release I'm still very much impressed by it.
