Well what there was was great,
1st episode an overview of amphibians and reptiles, amazing turtles frozen only to thaw in spring, I was amazed!
2nd one amphibians, frogs have been done to death but some interesting stuff on salamanders.
3rd one on lizards, wow the tiniest chameleon in the world and it is a small as a beatle!
4th one is on snakes, I thought this one would be kind of boring but it turned out to be the most interesting one.
5th one on turtles and crocs, this one should have been two, turtle and tortoises and sea turtles can fill an episode for sure (sea turtles have been done to death as well) and crocs and alligators can fill an episode.
David Attenborough is a behaviorist so I guess that's why he gives birds and mammals and even fish so much attention, but I find turtles and tortoises to be some of the most amazing animals on the planet.
What there is is excellent, i just wish there was more.

By A. Volk #1 HALL OF FAMETOP 10 REVIEWER on Nov. 16 2009
Format: DVD
This is another gorgeous series of nature videos from Sir David Attenborough and the BBC. While watching this series, I mentioned that Attenborough was a knight out loud. Someone thought that was a silly thing to do for a nature documentary star. They changed their mind by the end of the series!

This series takes a fresh look at the life of reptiles. There are five episodes. The first is a general introduction to reptiles (and amphibians) that challenges many commonly-held assumptions about these animals. Some of this footage is later expanded upon in later episodes. The second episode is on amphibians- frogs and salamanders. This was a really interesting episode, particularly since I've read/seen relatively little on the lives of salamanders. Next up are dragons of the dry- lizards. I was a little disappointed that Komodo dragons weren't featured, but there are some impressive monitor lizards as well as some tiny chameleons that almost have to be seen to be believed. The next video is dedicated solely to snakes. It's a really interesting video that I quite enjoyed. The last, armored giants, is split between turtles and crocodilians. That's too bad, as I think those are two of the most interesting groups of reptiles. Still, what's there is brilliant.

Overall, the DVDs present gorgeous quality film, often done from really interesting angles or with thermal cameras (that really reveal what life "in cold blood" is about). Each episode is followed by an extra 10 minutes or so of commentary on the filming of the episode, extra details on the animals in the episode, and conservation messages. The story of Lonely George was heartbreaking.

I love all herps, so I figured I needed to get this. I was very glad I did, as I was provided with 5 hours of great footage and narration. Some parts were slightly lower video quality than others, but the content made up for it. You should definitely consider this 2 DVD set.

A great series - to be expected from Attenborough. Personally, I might have preferred a broader selection of creatures surveyed (rather than focusing on just a few), but overall, it was spectacular.
