Best documentary
14 April 2019 | by commelinalesSee all my reviews

Human planet gives you profound perspectives on our planet earth, every episode tells a story about how we, human, survive and thrive across the world. Visually it is not so good compare with other awesome documentaries, but its story and music and narration are indeed great. It is a must watch if you want to know more about planet earth, about human culture around the world, and about how human and other animals, the environment develop in a harmonic way. In a word, it's a must-watch
