Anybody else watching Planet Earth on Discovery?
Well, I've tuned in to Discovery Channel tonight to watch Planet Earth. I was intrigued because they've been showing ads for this thing like every two minutes for the last month or so, and the photography looked really amazing.
However, I'm a little put off by it as it seems to be nothing but animals eating other animals. Don't get me wrong, I'm all about predator/prey relationships, and I'm more prone to donate money to the NRA than PETA. But it's a little old after two hours. They've got beautiful shots of landscapes, rarely seen species, etc. Amazing stuff. And I'll admit, the Great White shark jumping out of the water after the seals in slo-mo was awesome. But crap, EVERY scene ends with some animal getting eaten or dying after some sort of peril. I get it already! They should have called the series "Sh*t Gets Eaten on Planet Earth."
