Well, I recorded the first two shows last night and just finished watching the first one ...
The good: Absolutely stunning documentary who's cinematography is even better than Planet Earth.
The bad: Oprah's narration is in my opinion horrendous and makes what should be an awe inspiring experience an ordeal to be suffered through.
So much so that I just went to Amazon UK and ordered the blue ray version (I thankfully have a region-free br player) with Sir. David Attenborough
narrating. I just won't watch another one with her behind the mic. I have nothing against her mind you, I just think her voice is completely wrong
for these documentaries.
So I will wait a few days and watch it with the narration of the man who defines the genre.
Argh, I hate it when the idiots in marketing try to improve perfection into a disaster.
