I've only watched the first part of this first episode. It sits somewhere between a hype commercial and a teaser for a reality show. I only managed about 20 minutes before I gave up. Very very disappointing and does injury to a fascinating subject rather than inform or taking the viewer through the discovery or on an adventure.
There is very little information given and what is given is repeated ad nauseam as is the footage and script, repeated over and over, complete with revision summaries for commercial break inserts.
There is a distinct failed attempt to style this as some kind of dramatic reality show.
It is not a documentary at least not for anyone with an IQ above say 50 and does not quite make the geez of wow category it tries to fabricate.
The amount of facts in the whole episode can possibly be written on one page.
It is totally unthinkable that National Geographic spend budget on this.
