The Greatest Science Fiction Story Ever Told...
27 November 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Spending time writing a lengthy review of this documentary is pointless. The visuals are perfectly artistic and still biologically accurate. The information is engaging and valid, the stories engrossing and exciting. This should be required viewing for all students before they graduate - it manages to boil down about 4 months of high school Biology into a three- part miniseries.

This is simply the most enthralling and important documentary I've seen since Planet Earth.
