5.0 out of 5 stars A film of enourmous proportions that shows the majesty and mystery of our planet
It is hard to find a starting point in reviewing a film series that has set such a high standard of achievement. I frequently found myself pausing, rewinding and replaying multiple segments of each eposide, fascinated with the extent to which these expert filmmakers went to capture such amazing footage. What sets this "nature documentary" apart from all that have come...

3.0 out of 5 stars This Version is Missing Content!
A friend of mine showed me this series on DVD. I was so impressed I couldn't wait to purchase the Blu-Ray version and watch it at 1080p resolution. It turns out that not every scene is filmed in high definition, which is understandable given the conditions of some of the filming. What REALLY disappointed me about this version, however, is that much of the content is...

4.0 out of 5 stars Great set!,
Purchased set to watch on our 60" tv with surround sound and was not disappointed! Had us glued to the screen and the sound cranked... Great fun! Only reason I won't give 5* is, as others have mentioned before me, some dark scenes are grainy and the quality of the shots didn't match the rest of the scenes. Well worth the sale price!

Only watched the first disc so far. Will watch the rest in time. Watched it with my six year old, who was interested in all the animals. Would recommend.
3.0 out of 5 stars 5 Star Series, 0 Star Case,
This review is from: Planet Earth: The Complete Collection (DVD)
The Planet Earth Series, narrated by David Attenbourough, is an excellent and informative series spanning the many different terrains of the world. The case containing the 4 discs, however, is utter trash. The reason being it is very difficult to get the discs out of the case without potentially damaging them. I threw the case away since a small cracked formed on one of the disc
5.0 out of 5 stars Planet Earth,

5.0 out of 5 stars Planet earth,
Planet earth is one of the best series out there. If you have not seen yet stop waiting and see it. The things you will see in this series is unreal. A very enjoyable educational experience.
