The continent's unique geography creates some of the most extreme weather on the planet. Wild animals living in these astonishing and sometimes brutal habitats must be fiercely resilient sharing that human spirit the continent is known for.

Nice to look at ,but in the end MEDIOCRE!
28 June 2016 | by tankaceSee all my reviews

North America is an other one of the documentary about the corners of the world in which wild life does its thing and the inhabitants try to survive. To be honest I have seen more or less a dozen of this type of documentaries and see one more I was thinking " The faction of that is out and the documentary number 17 is unnecessary and what has more to give?". It was fine ,but didn't give me something I didn't already know.

For starter I have been watching wild life series since I was nine years old ,so I can say that I know well these series. North America just show you the creatures of the wild west (wow what a twist) ,again the California coast and the Midwest. Although the series isn't badly made or be offending to the audience the fact it doesn't try to be original just gives me a dejavou filling yet again. That is tiring and frankly why eat again pizza when I have eaten every combination imagine?

If you like it ,fine I don't blame you it is an entertaining documentary and the images showed are good looking. My problem is it doesn't give something new and that's an issue with the majority of the documentaries nowadays ,it seem, they have been out of content and they just give you the same things again about WW2, Dinosaurs, Vietnam, Irak , Rome, WW1, Inventions, China and so on.

In the end as said by Immortal Joe himself :" Mediocre!" ,no originally is a sign a laziness on the creatures part and I want to see new content for ones ,I crave it since 2013. Three whole years, even if you aren't an expert ,you can get that the documentary genre is stagnating.
