Much more to the desert than I had thought
18 October 2019 | by JakeBrinkmanSee all my reviews

My expectations for Wild Arabia were low because I expected little wildlife in the desert lands, so I wasn't expecting the crew to be able to capture many interesting shots to fill the series. To an extent, that was true. The first episode was loaded with excellent info, though many of the animals were small and slow moving to avoid overheating. The third episode had a couple of good segments, but it primarily focused on domesticated animals and human development. But the 2nd episode was absolutely spectacular, jam packed with wildlife and far more predators than I thought lived on the peninsula.

If you know nothing of Arabia, the whole series is a good watch. If you only care about the nature side, skip the final episode. And if you want to skip straight to the action, only watch the 2nd episode.
