An excellent documentary showing us nature in its glory...
28 October 2009 | by See all my reviews

This has to be one of the best documentaries I have ever seen. The cinematography is amazing, the narrator has everything down perfectly, and the wildlife they show throughout the series is very interesting and colorful. The film crew travels all over the globe to capture nature's greatest moments, and they pull this off with ease.

I would highly recommend this documentary to anyone. It is quite comparable to Planet Earth or Animal Planet.

Check it out and let us know via comments what you guys think of it.

I can't wait to buy the BluRay 1080p versions of this series...

10/10!
