It felt like some of the footage was from Blue Planet/Planet Earth so I was a little disappointed. It is still great to see but I still prefer the Planet Earth collection.

A big disappointment to me, this is what nature shows have come to???
First the lumping together of Reptiles and Amphibians, where reptiles are closer to birds in the animal family tree.
Second the complete omission of turtles in that episode, and the dwelling on the slow and tedious komodo dragons hunting.
Third the Deep sea creatures episode, where very little of it was deep sea and most of it was mollusks, why not call it mollusks and their kin?
Fourth the Hunter and Hunted episode, what family group is that?
And lastly the monkeys and apes episode. what haven't we seen of monkeys and apes? why dedicate a whole episode to them when entire family groups are totally ignored?
The plant episode was very well done I must admit, and the komodo dragons were interesting but too much airtime was given to the slow killing of the ox.
Coming from the Life on Earth / Living Planet / In Cold Blood / Blue Planet people this is pretty insulting. Dumbing down nature shows is just wrong.
