The best part of the series was the ten minute tidbits at the end of each episode showing how everything was captured on film, etc. I am not sure why, but none of these are on the Blu-Ray edition, but they are on the regular DVD set.
IF you haven't seen it, you need to. If you have seen it, you know what I'm talking about. This is the same series the Discovery Channel ran, only it's unabridged and has David Attenborough narrating, instead of Sigourney Weaver.
Prestine picture clarity that is hard to believe. HD is definetly the way of the future. Great price, fast shipping to Alaska, perfect for get togethers for friends and family. It can completely captivate you or you can talk with guests without it being overwhelming. Good extras. If you like nature, it is a must have.
I read a lot of positve reviews about this so my expectations were pretty high. I got the BBC version that some say is 1080 P; it's not. It is 1080i, same as the Discovery version. Not bad, but not great. I'd say the same for the sound. I paid $39.00, which is a pretty good value for what you get. I don't think I would pay full price at $80.00.
I went to the store and purchased this DVD in blueray and then found out a couple days later that it was half the price online. So I returned the store bought one and got one from walmart.com. My kids as well as my husband LOVE this DVD...great quality family time!
I watched planet earth on the discovery channel and i really liked it but at that time i only had a small tv with a bad signal. I just recently bought a the sony 52" xbr5 lcd tv and a ps3 and i wanted to see this series on my new setup. When i started playing planet earth on my tv i was completly blowen away from the details of the show. I learned alot from the episodes and i love to share it with my friends and family. Definetly a must buy!!!
This is a spectacular and amazing video. The Blu-Ray color, audio, and clarity are phenomenal. It is a joy to watch this DVD and I am sure I will watch it many many times. I highly recommend this purchase. I researched many online web sites and found WalMart to be the best bargain for this series. Love it!!!
We are retired old folks. And we watch PBS, Nova....animal specials...the like, whenever we can. We hesitated over the price of this, then decided to risk it.
And wound up thrilled. It taught/showed us things we hadn't seen before, and all in the gorgeous Blu-ray format.
If you like this sort of thing...you'll be very satisfied.
Perfect for our new Blue Ray - Spectacular Picture!!
First of all, Planet Earth is the most beautiful thing I have ever seen on my tv. The cinematography combined with high quality film and HD video create the best looking nature documentary I have ever seen.
Besides looks, Planet Earth comprehensively covers every part of the earth, showing places and animals that I never even knew existed. I can't image that there is a better video documentation of the earth in existence. This is well worth the money since you get four discs and 11 hour-long "episodes" dedicated to different areas of the earth. If you have an HDTV and you want to show it off, you MUST have Planet Earth. If you are at all interested in nature, animals, or the earth, you will also love this series.
My fiancee loves this series and she had never seen it in BluRay. She saw things in it that she had not before after watching it for an entire semester.
The Planet Earth blu ray disk series is outstanding for color and clarity.
This product is an incredible adventure that no-one should pass up. epic scenery and fascinating facts about the world. If you have a blu-ray player, you can't pass up this box set. Also, walmart.com's pricing is nearly half of local retailers.
A must buy for every home with a nature lover. Spend the extra $ and get this DVD in BluRay if you're able to play them.
This Planet Earth Collection is well worth the money. I seen the first part and will continue. If you are thinking about buying this it is well woth it. The colors are vivid and beautiful.
Unbelievable entertainment and educational on top of that! A must see and have for all families interested in their planet.
This was the perfect gift to buy my parents to break in their new HDTV. This is the version narrated by David Attenborough (as it should be!). Clips of this series are on YouTube if you want to see what it's like, but having it all on Blu-Ray is definitely worth it.
To sum up this box set I'll quote my brother-in-law who works in home theater and mobile installation:
"We always keep Planet Earth on file to showcase the benefits of bluray and the clear difference in picture and sound."
I think this is a fantastic series. I never saw it when it was on television and originally Netflix-ed the first disc. Decided immediately no need to waste a Netflix rental on this set because it was so amazing I was going to purchase it for sure. I originally purchased this set from Best Buy for $44 or so. But, then I returned it when I found Wal-Mart had AGAIN the best price. Amazing series of photography and great narration. You won't believe your eyes, and a great value for almost 9 hours of breathtaking entertainment.
An outstanding product Planet Earth should be in every household. it has to be one of the finest products available in Blue Ray or DVD
The cover was damaged when I received it in the mail. Other than that, the picture quality on Blu-Ray definitely makes spending a little extra $$ worth it.
