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 »
(r#89)This is not a very bad show and it is very interesting to see how these scientists and CGI artists have imagined what the world may look like millions of years from now. But when you compare this to its utterly brilliant predecessor "Walking With Dinosaurs", it becomes obvious that for what it is, "Wild" is a flawed series.
The biggest flaw is that it's repetitive. I love to marvel at the awesome creatures the imaginative minds behind the show have thought up. But when some geeky guy with a ridiculous beard spends several minutes explaining the anatomy of the animal, and when the same scenes are shown repeatedly to demonstrate what the animal is capable of ... it becomes boring.
Still this is a rather good show and it features some very cool creatures, such as the lizard that walked upright and caught flies in its neckshields (is that a word??) and the (literally) flying fish. As long as a gigantic CGI monsters roam across the screen instead of some dude with an obviously fake beard, this is fun to watch if not necessarily wild.
