Wonderful homage to Douglas Adams's book with same title
12 October 2010 | by (Netherlands) – See all my reviews

Many years back I read Douglas Adams's book "Last Chance to See", in which he so colorfully tells the story of how he and his friend, biologist Mark Cawardine, traveled the world in an effort to see the seven most endangered species of animals in the wild before it was too late. Now, twenty years later, this documentary revisits the same places. Douglas Adams isn't alive anymore, but Stephen Fry is possibly the best man to take his place, providing the series with his witty comments, while Mark Cawardine provides the cold hard facts.

Notably the series has six episodes, presumably because one of the seven animals Douglas Adams wrote about in his book did indeed go extinct since then.

Despite the sometimes sad story that unfolds, the humor with which it is told makes it a delightful watch. Douglas Adams wrote a hilarious passage about the Kakapo bird in his book. If you've read it and want to finally see that strange bird on the screen, this is your chance! As in the book, the bird makes quite a comedic appearance in the documentary. Highly recommended! 9/10
