Scenes of tremendous grandeur, thrashing pods of orcas, are switched dizzyingly with Attenborough's other specialty: the vignettes, the micronarratives.

It's a dazzling piece of television.

A worthy successor to the original, Blue Planet II also brings an urgent environmental warning that the first lacked: It demonstrates that the seas are in trouble and that the world must act.

Like the Paradise Papers, Blue Planet II is uncovering vital information, never before seen by the public. And, like the Paradise Papers, its focus on process over the story obscures that.

Blue Planet II can be your educational documentary served at a gourmet restaurant. It can be your cinematography aspiration. It can be your expedition inspiration. It is definitely one of the best pieces of television made ever.

Haunting. Thrilling. Terrifying. Humbling. And, holy shit, gorgeous. All I can say is thank you to the people who spent four years putting this together. Well, that and please, do not miss this program.

Rather than provide any semblance of a lecture, each vignette sets forth its material in a visceral, engaging manner that delights the eye.

Most things on Netflix, even if they're good, are always imperfect. Blue Planet II is close to sublime.

Dec 19, 2018 | Full Review…

Find the highest-definition television you can and some good snacks and settle in. You've got seven whole episodes of jaw-dropping documentary footage to enjoy.

Jul 3, 2018 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…

This documentary is majestic in scale and approach, and you will leave the theatre at bit wobbly at the thought of this giant, seething, living, thriving other planet now menacing our shores.
