True genius. It makes standing in the poles, what' really seems like an
exhilarating experience feel it's being done by yourself. With polar
bears and penguins in the joy of spring, the summertime with less
blues, autumn filled with the excitement of the mating season, the hard
land that is winter, and then in the conclusion, you have people living
there and you can see them. This is a classic series with brilliant
moments all through it. It won 4 Emmys because it deserved them more
than anything else in 2009. Madagascar- one of Attenborough's best
works, the amazing documentary Ocean Giants and the classic Human
Planet. Frozen Planet beat all them because some of the amazing stuff,
as well as educational (not something I look for in Docos) and exciting
(this one is exciting, animal-action-packed series) but also never
filmed before. Nobody had filmed at Antarctic volcanoes or the Russian
arctic before. Migrating eider ducks was new and never done before.
That is the magic behind a classic series. Do yourself a favour if you
haven't already. Watch all 7 parts. Won't waste your time. You could do
an episode a day and be finished with it in a week. Come on. It won't
wreck your life or anything. C'mon.
