Recently I’m finding myself awash in too many options for what to watch on my television – and we don’t even have cable! I’m learning that shows recommended by friends always seem to be the best. So, with that in mind, I’ve decided to become a bit more outgoing in my recommendations for things I’m watching which I think are exceptional – or I found to be a lot of fun. It’s not like anyone has to watch these, but I decided to begin alerting you when I find something I think is super, over-the-top good and why. First up is this one:
If you’ve upgraded your television in the past year or two, this short series is a visual and auditory delight. While impressive on any decent television set up, with a 4K TV capable of 30+ fps, you will gasp at some of the most stunning scenes ever filmed. The sound is equally spectacular. Add in David Attenborough’s grandfatherly voice and distinctive speech cadence and I was just mesmerized. Yes, it is an educational documentary film, but don’t be put off by that. You may or may not agree with the script, but don’t let anything hold you back from enjoying spectacular scenes of astonishing beauty. So far I’ve only watched the first one, and plan to ration myself as I want to make this experience last as long as I can. The eight-part series was produced by the BBC and took four years to make. It was filmed in 50 countries using over 600 crew members. It is simply amazing, and you’ll find it on Netflix.
