Re: "The wonder of Sir David Attenborough"



BBC released the UK version of Planet Earth in Region 1 format so we could 
watch it here. I snapped it up as quick as I could. I didn't miss a single 
episode when it came out on Discovery US, but I felt like I was watching a 
whole new series when David Attenborough was narrating instead of Sigourney 
Weaver. He's amazing... this is obviously what he was born to do.

You 
know, 
I 
wouldn't 
mind 
watching 
the 
US 
version 
of 
these 
shows 
if 
they 
didn't 
butcher 
them 
so 
badly. 
I 
remember 
'walking 
with 
prehistoric 
beasts' 
being 
virtually 
unwatchable 
on 
US 
Discovery. 
The 
"Planet 
Earth" 
US 
version 
was 
annoying 
too. 
I'm 
happy 
to 
wait 
for 
a 
US 
screening 
of 
life 
in 
cold 
blood, 
but 
I 
suspect 
they'll 
just 
ruin 
it... 
probably 
replacing 
David 
Attenborough 
with 
some 
Hollywood 
C-lister 
who 
struggles 
to 
pronounce 
the 
names 
of 
the 
animals 
correctly. 
Maybe 
I'll 
just 
shell 
out 
for 
the 
UK 
DVD 
when 
it 
comes 
out 
(end 
of 
feb?).

Sadly, 
it 
won't 
let 
you 
watch 
it 
if 
you 
are 
outside 
the 
UK.
