    The imagery is very nice but I finish an episode wondering what I learned. Seems to have a repetitive theme of look at the nice place... here are animals killing each other there... here is another nice place and more animals killing each other.
  • Attenborough is the best!

    Its crazy how hard it is to find good documentaries on itunes but this is worth purchasing to watch over and over. Excelent value. Also, cant wait for Planet Earth II to come out, hope they dont make us wait too long and especially hope they continue to give us the origional version with David Attenborough, no watered down version made for the US market!
  • Must watch

    Nature & documentary lovers this is a must watch. Attenborough is simply the best and one of a kind.
  • No Sigourney Weaver! :(

    Such an breathtaking serious, but I wish they had the US Discovery Channel Edition narrated by Sigourney Weaver. I don’t like this guys voice.

    Best documentary ever! It can get a little slow at times, but is still incredible. I didn't want to at first, but, even though it's expensive, the HD version is beautiful, and I would recommend getting it. And for those of you asking, the narrator is David Attenborough, the original narrator. I would much rather have him than Sigourney Weaver.
  • Best documentary ever, but...

    The HD version looks absolutely terrible on a 60" LCD TV. Looks terrible on a 27" iMac, for that matter. What gives?
  • Great for Small Kids

    I spent a very long time searching for the version on blue-ray narratted by Sigourney Weaver, she has by far the better narratting voice for this series, and she was also the original narrattor for the series when it first premiered on TV (in america, dont know about elsewhere), i refuse to buy this without her narrating it, and am dissapointed that i cannot find it on iTunes. A good visual experience ruined by a narrator who sounds like a droning history teacher.
  • Good
