>>2057638 Watched the blu rays of Planet Earth the other week. No exaggeration, I was almost moved to tears at some of the scenes. Absolutely amazing program.
I love all attenborough documentaries. I honestly can't think of who could inspire me or others in such a way once he is unable to continue narration, though I think Benedict Cumberbatch did a good job on a couple of documentaries.
The Hunt, which was on at the end of last year, was really good.
Now, I watch these things no matter what animal is featured, but watching The Hunt it did make me smile how they would fit in the animals most people would think of as 'boring' in and around the large apex predators. Like going from a bit about wolves to a bit about ants.
I suppose people wouldn't stick around if they opened with ants.
The last episode about the conservation efforts and human impact world wide was really good too. Now I need to go watch the last two episodes of The Great Barrier Reef.
>>2057647 >Benedict Cumberbatch did a good job on a couple of documentaries. I didn't realise he did any. What sort?
>>2057650 >brian cox He's okay, but I'd rather he stick to the physics kinda ones.
No idea who could take over for the natural sciences ones though. Who has the passion and interest in the natural world and conservation, whilst being articulate and having the presence of someone like Attenborough?
Honestly I wish he hadn't gone on his anti-religion drive. God Delusion is just a babby's first atheism book, and probably his worst work.
But I can also see that he probably thought it was necessary for you Americans, how you can't seem to be able to separate religion from state and all that shit. For a nordic guy like me it seems just silly.
>>2057513 Life in Cold Blood is my favourite just because I love reptiles. Life in the Undergrowth is also pretty good. Both of them show more unique animals and their behaviour that don't tend to be in the bigger series.
>British documentary >Here, in the jungles of Bhata-Tuthu, the praying mantis is in search of its prey >3 minutes of very clean and uninterrupted footage of the pray mantgis following a spider
>american documentary >guitar riff playing in the background >YOU PROBABLY WOULDN'T WANT ONE OF THESE KILLERS IN YOUR BACK YARD >Rapid jump cuts of the praying mantis THE PRAYING MANTIS MIGHT LOOK LIKE A BUG IN CHURCH, BUT THIS NASTY MOTHER-SUCKER IS NOT TO BE MESSED WITH >more flashy jump cuts >THIS LITTLE SPIDER DOESNT KNOW WHATS WAITING FOR HIM, THE FURY OF THE MANTIS IS NOT TO BE UNDERESTIMATED >more flashy jump cuts >the mantis strikes >strange animal growling and screeching noises are dubbed in as it attacks because silent footage is too boring for americans >slow mo replay of the attack in black and white >AND IT'S OVER IN A FLASH >THAT LITTLE SPIDER >SHOULD'VE PRAYED >TO THE MANTIS >Starwipe to the next clip
>>2060109 The Hunt is good but it pales in comparison with Planet Earth or Africa, even if some particular shots are really good. i didn't like the split episode format between actual documentary and how it was filmed, even if some of the techniques behind it were impressive. at most they should be 10 minutes each episode dedicated to behind the scenes, or maybe after the credits.
and i fucking hated that last episode you talk about, which wasn't about nature at all
I've watched them all but the episode on Frozen Planet where the wolf is trying to take down the young bison... holy fuckaroo... it's a fight to the death for both of them, it was absolutely enthralling and incredible footage. I almost cried at that scene
