Much like Dougal Dixon's book After Man: A Zoology of the Future (which served as an inspiration for the show), the series was highly popular in Japan, where people are very fond of speculative biology and strange creatures that existed in the past or may exist in the future. It even received an exclusive manga (comic) that adapted the series into more story-driven narratives. See more »
This is an interesting program. I've never seen anything quite like it, but I like it.
The best thing about this program is that it provides a look into the future of our planet in a way that is both creative and realistic. The show and featured scientists give reasonable scientific explanations for all of the weird fictional creatures that appear, and their abilities. It honestly makes me sad that I will never get to see if this show was right or not.
However, this program is not perfect. There are some things I do not like. First of all, the creature animations are constantly reused over and over, and it becomes annoying. Also, the CGI doesn't always blend well with the photo-realistic environments, making it look fake.
Despite that, this is very unique and interesting fake documentary, that not enough people have seen and need to see. It provides an intriguing look into what our planet may look like from 5-200 million years from now. I highly recommend it.
