The first one was incredible.
Pretty damn good show. I've seen footage from that show recycled many times.
My lord, the photography in that trailer...
I hope they do not make the same mistake they did on the first version - when they brought it to American television, they replaced David Attenborough with Sigourney Weaver. Nothing against Weaver, but that's like sidelining Vin Scully because Tim McCarver is available.
Yeah I thought the same thing at the time.
Was so bummed that they had Opera narrate "Life"
***spoiler*** This is from the first espisode in the UK
This has been going around the internets today. The video is insane.
Planet Earth II just gave us the most thrilling chase scene of the year
Hiliarious send up with Aussie narrator. NSFW. Headphones only.
I just lost 20 minutes of my life to that guy's YouTube channel.
Some incredible imagery and sequences captured in the first episode that aired last night. Pretty special stuff. Glad this is back. Hopefully it won't take another 10+ years for the third one. David Attenborough is great. "Mountains" next week.
I read that it takes them over five years to make the series.
Attenborough is 90 years old, so they are considering pushing to get another one made.
I watched last night - I'd buy a 4K set just to see this on it.
I have a 4K set, it looked great. Now if only someone would natively broadcast at that quality. I've read DirecTV has had it in the works for a while now, still waiting. Netflix's shows do look pretty awesome however.
Both DirectTV and Dish have this in 4k now. I haven't upgraded (yet), but i hear it is stunningly good.
So they do, yes, I gotta get on that. Another 7 bucks to my ever climbing cable bill. Nerts.
Who's carrying the handheld cameras in a freaking place that's loaded with mother fracking snakes?
The work the camera people do is mindboggling. Imagine having to climb up a mountain, hunker down behind a rock, endure a blizzard and not go to the bathroom for 11 hours in hopes of filming a snow leopard. And failing.
Repeat until you get the snow leopard.
I think I read where the first one took almost 10 years of filming- its really incredible. they have to position cameras in the wild and just leave them since the risk of human interference having an impact on the natural movements and actions of the animals has to be considered. Can take them years to get the right angle on a shot. This is my favorite series on television bar none. Everything from the product to the production is grade A. Can't wait for next week.
First episode is on now on BBC America
Both the first and second installments took five years to film. They hope to start another one soon.
In the interim, BBCAmerica will be showing Blue Planet II later this year.
A note about BBCAmerica - as stated about, they're now streaming episode one. Even better, no log-in required.
Watching the first season of Planet Earth. The pack of lions attacking an elephant was insane. I would have to be scalitoing hungry to take on an elephant, even if I was a pack of lions.
