At the end of every episode, there is a mini doc on filming that particular episode. They focused on volcano / penguin island this time. Not sure if you missed it or it wasn't included in whatever media you watched it from.
I'm a sucker for these kind of things. The camera work in this series is top notch. That baby iguana vs snek scene was more intense than a lot of action movies I've seen. Also those seagull looking birds totally did look fake...it did actually look like something straight out of a pixar movie.
Same here. And I'm so happy that this time around I'm getting to watch it as it comes out week after week, because I sort of feel like the majesty and epic-ness of the first one was diluted somewhat for me because I binged it all at once. Seeing one absolutely jaw-dropping episode a week really makes you appreciate just how fucking awesome it is.
A friend of mine watched the original version narrated by Oprah. /shudder He didn't know any better, but why do they even feel the need to do that shit in the first place?? It isn't like Attenborough (sp) is hard to understand for us Yanks.
