Re: WWB EPISODE 1 SPOILER
That's too bad about the adapid primate (Godinotia) being given
chimp-like vocalization and behaviour.
I obviously haven't had a chance to see the show, but from the picture
of Godinotia at the BBC site, it also *looks* too much like a chimp. If
they made it a little more lemur-like, I think it might be more accurate and
less like "Planet of the Apes".
As for the behavior, would adapids have spent much time on the ground
(much less shaking small trees)? Will have to wait until I hear their
vocalization to comment on that, but doesn't sound like I will be liking
that much either. I will probably have the same reaction as Darren
did----too apish. Maybe Godinotia will look better on wider shots (I assume
that they at least gave them long tails).
That said, the other restorations look very good. The crimson and blue
plumage on Gastornis makes it look even more like a "Jayhawk", and has me
feeling a little homesick for KU (except that our jayhawk has more of a
smile on its beak). :-)
