Yawn. Poorly Filmed Snooze Fest.
How sad is this?
There's no way I can possibly love it entirely but I just think its ridiculously bad, but enjoyable at the same time.
Blue Planet II is simply fantastic. This is among the few best documentaries for our Blue Planet indeed. This educational documentary gives you the excitement when you see the amazing things that live in the oceans. They show the human impact on marine life and how we can save them. I like the first part of this documentary as well which came in 2001.
Many movies and television series claim to push the boundaries. This one really does. As the material about the making of the series (at the end of each episode and online) shows, the four years it took to make included a record depth for a manned submersible dive in Antarctica, round the clock diving to make sure they did not miss a once-a-year event at a remote island, coping with huge sharks attacking the crew's submarine, deploying a range of novel filming technologies, and taking so much time under water that they were able to record behaviours never seen before. Around a thousand hours of shooting were needed for each hour of programme.
The results are genuinely sublime, with an astonishing range of natural wonders captured by photography that is surely peerless in its beauty, range and consistency. Skilful editing and commentary helps bring each of the subjects to life. Evocative music and sound effects may irritate some but for me, and I expect most others, these add to the impact. The conservation message is there in part in most episodes, emerging into its own in the final episode, but really the whole series is a uniquely powerful plea for the conservation of the oceans. Beyond that there is not much to say except "see it".
If you are human it can be saved but you will need to give up all those luxury items wrapped in plastic shipped from China to give us a few moments of joy then to the bins.
You have said what we all say we don't deserve the BLUE PLANET. What wonders we have still to discover but the BIGGEST might be ourselves and how we can change. Starting with ME & YOU.
THANK YOU WORLD.
The program shows us how we can change and save some of the fish and animals but everyday we lose more wonders including humans War and Destruction might see the end of us but unfortunately it will take the planet years to recover
Loved the reality hope it's still here for my grandchildren
THINK DO I NEED THIS STOP THE WASTE.
I watched the first installment of Blue Planet II with high hopes last night and it was everything I had hoped for. Once again, the BBC/David Attenborough-led team of international wildlife photographers has come up with a sensational piece of television documentary-making - updating and enriching the theme of the original Blue Planet series 10 years ago. You might think you could not be any more entranced by pods of dolphins swimming, until you see the spectacular footage of them surfing for pleasure in huge waves. And to then see a large pod of dolphins rendezvous with another species in a way never seen before, shows us that this is indeed a new way of looking at nature. I will be glued to the rest of the series to see just how much more the latest underwater filming techniques can show us about the seas - but also to hear the salient warning about how badly we are wrecking this Blue Planet of ours. I suggest the BBC make a gift of a boxed set of this series to every national leader on Earth - with a message that says: the future of all this is in YOUR hands.
