If You Loved the 'Planet Earth' Series, You'll Love This
17 February 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This is a great series, almost identical to the famous BBC "Planet Earth" series of the past few years. I mean "identical" in its greatness: the fabulous photography and the interesting way the animals, earth, sea creatures, birds, etc., are shown. To see this in high definition, too, as with Planet Earth series, is a marvel. I can't recall how many times my jaw dropped at something being shown on the screen here.

"Wild Russia" took three years to make and involves six episodes. It's magnificent to view and is actually less "stressful," if you will, than Planet Earth in that you don't see all the bloody killing. As you know, that's the way it is in wildlife, a lot of kill-or-be killed. I realize that, but I'm never comfortable viewing it and in "Wild Russia" you don't see it.

As is shown in the short preview every episode, Russia a vast country with 11 time zones. It has incredible scenery and some unique wildlife, animals or birds or fish you don't see anywhere else in the world. However, the patient photographers here have pictures of them, such as Amur Leopard, a rare sight even in the only place they exist in Far East Russia.

Suffice to say, if you loved the 11-part "Planet Earth" series, checking out these episodes is a must, is something you owe yourself. Don't miss them. I only hope these are put out on Blu-Ray because they are worth seeing multiple times.
