Storyline

In 2004, when marine biologist Dr Brian McCormick (Sean C. Michael) stumbled across a recording of mysterious underwater sounds, he launched a scientific investigation to uncover the creature responsible. In search of conclusive proof, he and his research team are called out to an unusual whale stranding in South Africa. Here they find the part digested remains of an animal none of them can identify. As each of its body parts is autopsied, they provide new pieces of the puzzle. As the picture builds, McCormick is drawn to an astonishing conclusion: this new marine creature is related to humans. This two-hour special combines beautiful CGI animation, real natural history, a thrilling contemporary conspiracy theory and a race against time to unveil an ancient secret before it's too late.

Can't understand the point Animal Planet was trying to make...
8 September 2013 | by (Sao Paulo, Brazil) – See all my reviews

At first I was kind of surprised! What was that? Mermaids!???

Well, may be because I have a scientific background, from the beginning I thought that something was very wrong with this "documentary". The story made little sense, and the "scientists" that appeared looked kinda of "suspicious", in special the South African forensic scientist (too beautiful to be true! :)! Logic tell us that almost any animal or creature that lived on this planet left behind lot of footprints and evidence in terms of fossils, etc. Could that be an absurd and unique exception to this rule? The problem was that the thing was live on Animal Planet, not in 3rd class fictional network. And that was how I followed the story to the end. :)

Anyways. It was a good joke! I just still do not get the point the Animal Planet was trying to make with this documentary. One obvious consequence that I see is that they thrown away a relevant portion of their credibility as "scientific" network.

My two cents... Claudiano
