Default "Life"

Not sure if this is the right forum for this, but my best guess is that it is.

Anyone else anticipating seeing the new "Life" series on the Discovery channel? It's being billed as sort of a sequel to the incredible "Planet Earth" series, and I can't wait to see it, although I'm a bit puzzled by their choice of talk-show hostess Oprah Winfrey as narrator. When has she ever evinced any interest in nature before?

Click here for a page with info on the series.

Ive noticed Oprah has a wide variety of interests. Probably the reason she has become a multimillionair in the communications business.

I think its a good thing. She'll draw people who normally might not be interested in such things.

Yeah that might be a good thing about her doing the narration,and I'm sure she did a good job.

But I'm a fan of David Attenborough and feel it's only reasonable that he narrate every nature documentary ever made.

There are two more from BBC documentaries out there that were excellent, You can watch one online, Nature’s Great Events | Watch Free Documentary Online Nature's Great Events was way cool. The other one was Planet Earth, Amazon.com: Planet Earth: The Complete BBC Series [Blu-ray]: David Attenborough: Movies & TV . That might be online for free too. I like Oprah but... there's just something weird about her narrating instead of Attenborough. Doesn't matter, this new one is going to be as good as the other ones.

Back when HD-DVD and Blu-Ray were still fighting to see which HD format would prevail, I bought into HD-DVD, and among my 30 or so HD-DVD's are Planet Earth and Galapagos, both of which are amazing documentaries, particularly in the Hi-def format with 5.1 channel audio. Planet Earth is just plain mind-boggling.

I received a Blu Ray player as a gift last Christmas, so I'm ready for Life on Blu Ray now.
