Mods, feel free to move to Media Center after a bit, but I posted it here for initial traffic purposes.

Starting tonight is a 10 part series titled 'Life.' Word is, it has all the visual brilliance of 'Planet Earth.' For those allergic to Oprah Winfrey narration and 'go green' pronouncements of coming Armageddon, watch with the sound off. But watch.

8p EST, Discover and Discover HD.

Oprah is the main reason I have no interest in this. I do like your point of turning the volume down. heh

I don't get the channel to watch it and refuse to pay for it on BD when it comes out because of everything you just stated though.

The review I heard said that the visuals were, once again, stunning.

However, the narration was redone for American release, and while the "Planet Earth" series was engaging and informative , the "Life" series is a bit preachy and condescending...and that while Oprah may be a media titan, that doesn't necessarily mean she brings much to the narration.

The recommendation was to wait for disc release and get the original narration version (I can't remember the name of the English narrator)

Tonight they're going to show the mating rituals of the stalk-eyed fly.

I agree. I hear the words but not the person. I also don't really care about the politics of celebrities, so that won't bother me either.

VLC if you dont want to bother with codecs, otherwise just regular window media player with the right codecs works well.

Both do a good job on my htpc, my xbox (original running xbmc) wont play mkv at all.

As did I. The show is just so fucking good. The angles, the shots, the timing. It's all A+ shit.

I'm thinking now I'll have to watch all of season 1 that Fish posted in another thread and then follow up with season 2. The stuff is too much to miss.

A little note to the video: that shit is horribly sad. Legitimately just born and seconds later they're having the life squeezed from them. Nature is savage AF.

This is reminiscent of the baby sea turtles mad dash for the ocean after they've hatched.

Ah, shit. Link's dead.

It was newly hatched marine iguanas attempting to make their way to the ocean across a killing field riddled with racer snakes.

I tried to find it on YouTube but only found <1:30 clips and not HD. The vid I linked was about 5:30. Very intense.
