Re: Dragons on Animal Planet March 20

"Dragons" made its North American debut last night. As was discussed last month when it was shown in Europe, it had some appeal. However, I wish that the makers of Walking With... and other spinoffs would get away from the variations on a Bambi theme for a plot.

As Martin Baeker pointed out in his review in February, the science terrible. The body was thawed, everyone but the lead scientist wore a mask (and his flowing hair might have been contained in a real lab situation--or restaurant), methods for extracting the gases were hap-hazard, many other things.

The last half-hour "making of" program was a lot more interesting, especially the interview with John Sibbick.
