Re: 'Walking with Monsters' or 'Before the Dinosaurs'
I really enjoyed 'Before the Dinosaurs/Walking with Monsters' - but
it would've been nice if they'd included a few brief talks with
paleontologists so viewers could see some of the actual fossils. The
remains of eurypterids and giant millipedes don't seem to get enough
airtime these days.
Perhaps now that they've given a brief overview of each of the major
eras of life on Earth they'll go back for a deeper look into each of
them. 'Walking with Dinosaurs 2' would certainly be welcome -
especially with the advances in CGI since the original. It would be
great to see _Maiasaura_, _Spinosaurus_ and the Liaoning Fauna brought
to life on one of these programs.
