Great cinematography and a few interesting facts though we've seen much of it before in the many shows of this variety that have aired before. Not much on the 'ways' and 'hows' of the planet and it's continents, but more of a quick overview of pinpointed areas that then focuses on a few animals in these areas and how they live and survive, especially in the dire situation of deforestation and climate change. (A dark and worrisome theme throughout many episodes). More of a new version of the vintage "Mutual of Omaha's Wild Kingdom," than a in-depth series like BBC's 'Planet Earth' or 'Blue Planet.' Though like those, it is narrated by the great David Attenborough. It is listed on TV as season one, so maybe it will benefit from additional seasons that when combined will give us a more thorough overview of our world's continents. I was hoping more for a thorough look into everything about each continent, from their land, the forests, deserts, rivers and climate, to their societies and people. Instead we just get some selected tales of how a selected animal hunts and struggles in about an hour's run time. Still an important series to understand what man is doing wrong to this planet.
