Storyline

Sweeping across some of the most diverse landscapes on the planet, North America takes viewers from the silent grandeur of lofty snowcapped peaks to fertile forests and dramatic windswept coasts. The continent's unique geography creates some of the most extreme weather on the planet. Wild animals living in these astonishing and sometimes brutal habitats must be fiercely resilient sharing that human spirit the continent is known for. From jaguars to spinner sharks, wolves that fish to wolverines high in the mountains, this is North America. Written by Discovery

You've gotta see this one....
26 May 2013 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

"North America" is a nature show about the animals of North America that has been shown on the Discovery Channel here in the States. While I have not seen all the episodes, I was blown away by "North America". As I sat and watched with my aunt and uncle, I just couldn't believe the cinematography--and it simply looked too good for television. It has about the best camera work of any show I can recall--with breathtaking scenery, clips of animals doing things you've never seen on film before, and a scope that is incredible. Seen on a large HD TV, it is simply a delight. Now I would give the show a 10 but for one small annoyance. Too often the filmmakers thought it would be clever to show clips of these animals set to pop music (such as a pika running about set to the tune "9 to 5") and I found this really annoying and took me out of the moment. Still, a minor crime in an otherwise impeccable show.

By the way, although the show is called "North America", it only seems to be about the animals of the US and Canada--not the rest of North America (such as Mexico, Belize, and the Caribbean).
