Blue Waters or Green forests, visuals are mesmerizing
20 October 2018 | by ravishankar-infySee all my reviews

5+ hours of nature and some parts showing humans. The refreshing thing about this series is that it doesn't go with major interviews or opinions of any specialist, just the narration and that too with Benedict Cumberbatch is awesome not to the level of legendary David Attenborough but inch closer.

Big plus is the visuals as with all the great documentaries. Blue Waters or Green forests, visuals are mesmerizing to say the least. Exploring the fauna and ocean species and their expansion throughout the pacific islands and slowly moving to cover the exploitation of the pacific and its imact on world. A job well done. Some repetitive footage across episodes and incoherence in stitching various themes in each episode is the one which hindered me on giving a 10. Extremely satisfied with 5 episodes and a bit sad on the last one. Last episode is a sad truth on our exploitation of pacific. Even though its brief one hour, it pack a punch. My heavenly bliss faded to sadness on finishing the last episode.. that's it. 5 episodes of paradise and one on how we are losing it. Satisfied 5 + hours of my life.
