Re: JFC - allosaur/ceratosaur - going off the rails?

It was certainly one of the better animated ones too. I thought the Ceratosaurus was a nice model as well...except for those pronated forearms of course. It seems that anytime a paleontologist used cautionary language it was nullified by the narrarator's overblown sensationalist commentary.

Forget the ceratosaurs; isn't it allosaurus who is had the most proof
for being a pack hunter? I did enjoy watching the episode...visually
but the commentary just got under my skin. Especially in regards to
the "obvious" superior intellect possessed by allosaurus that they
kept feeling the need to bring up.

My head exploded when he said that.

What? ??

And there were many other statements of SWAG made out to be facts
in this ep. Kinda rubs the wrong way - how about "some paleo's theorize
... "

On the upside we got to see some more varied faces
and the CGI looked better (to me) in this one.
