Planet Earth

Last night we were mesmerized by the Discovery Channel's new series, Planet Earth. The photography is amazing. Its definitely biased towards featuring the more highly adapted vertebrates on our planet. But who cares? These animals are fantastic - polar bear cubs skittering across the ice, sharks bursting out of the water to catch a seal, enormous whale sharks drifting by in a smokey cloud of bait fish.

I was so excited, I told the kids about the series on the way to school. After homework was done, I turned the ocean episode on for them while I finished dinner. They were just as enthusiastic as we were. "I see a dolphin!" Colin shrieked. "A whale shark!!!!" (his favorite) Anna said, "Those baby turtles are so, so cute! Hurry and get into the water before the birds eat you!"

If you have Tivo, but this series on your list. It gets 4 Thumbs up from us.
