I love the ocean. Swimming in it, sitting by it, watching shows on tv about it. When I was a kid I gobbled up as many of the discovery channel shows about sharks, whales, fishes and anything to do with the ocean as I could.
When the Discovery channel released their new series called Planet Earth I was thrilled. It was promoted like crazy and I tuned in every week to see what new crazy animal they managed to capture with their new cameras and technology. Last week I happened to catch a commercial for a new Blue Planet series, updated from the Seas of Life series they did a while back.
If you have any remote interest in this stuff you HAVE to check it out. The discovery channel will probably run the shows in re-runs for a while. You can check out the show listing and more details through their website:
I really like how they’ve incorporated some of the cameraman interviews into the shows. Which is what I thought the Planet Earth episodes were lacking.
So set up those DVRs and grab a wetsuit!
