An Enthralling Masterpiece
2 November 2017 | by farshidkarimiSee all my reviews

From space, astronauts describe the earth as a magnificently bluish sphere, standing out against a dark backdrop.

The earth is an inspiring gift bestowed on us human beings to appreciate the nature, the animals, the oceans and the universe. Oceans constitute a major part of this gift, showcasing a vast spectrum of glorious animals and a boundless array of phenomena.

These animals are the gems festooning the oceans, living harmoniously together, creating vast treasure troves for us to behold and ponder over, to take delight in discovering.

The oceans are the arteries of life pulsating throughout the Planet Earth, reminding us of the splendor and also fragility of rainbow of life hanging majestically over the Earth.

This stunning series awakens in us the respect for life and the gift given to us, reminding us of how enchanting oceans are and the animals that make a large and beautiful part of this awesome Life on earth.

I hope more people, more politicians, more religious zealots are brought to watch series like this to appreciate and respect the glory of life on Planet Earth and in the Blue Planet. It may cast a spell on them to stop the destruction of this magnificent life, as it did on me watching it.

I once again bow to the people involved in the creation of this sparkling diamond of a documentary and wish that Sir David Attenborough live for many years to mesmerize us with his iconic narration and voice.
