This series has a lot going for it with beautiful footage of the someof the most impressive underwater environments on this planet. Being astaggering five years in the making, one would be hard-pressed toexpect any less. I did get the impression that some scenes from thefirst episode where repeated in the latter ones, which is naturallyonly a minor gripe.
David Attenborough is great as a narrator and comments are informative,leaving enough room for one's imagination, and well spaced out, so thatviewers get plenty of time to reflect upon the breathtaking imagery. Ifyou get the opportunity try not to watch a translated version of thisseries.
A definite must-see for anyone interested in the intricacies of ourblue continents and easily the best documentary on this subject I'veever seen.

As a SCUBA diver, I can appreciate the incredible physical strain thecameramen must have endured to get the shots underwater. This series isMUCH more than that, though. The narration is perfect, the scenesborderingon implausible and the subject matter enthralling. The day to daystrugglefor life taking place out of the view of we terrestrial dwellers is mindboggling. This DVD set has open my eyes to another planet right here onEarth. I urge everyone to watch this series.
Mammoth series, five years in the making, taking a look at the rich tapestry of life in the world's oceans.
