News & Interviews for Our Planet: Season 1
David Attenborough's Netflix series offers a strange waltz between wonder and melancholy. The show thrills us with the marvels of nature, and then saddens us that we are rapidly wiping them out.
It's like watching an American drug ad during which a voice-over reads out lists of horrific side effects over footage of frolicking, picnicking families. Frankly, it's about time.
The new series is putting all its energy into making an impact, sacrificing entertainment value for a shot at changing a few minds.
The camera-work and the colours are exquisite. A lone elephant and zebra walk across an African salt pan, looking like works of art. A flock of flamingos settle on the salt flats after the rains, their chicks knobbly-kneed.
Everything had been written for the thickest audience imaginable. At one point, Attenborough explained how clouds released rain.
Despite its shortcomings, Our Planet is a series more suitable for today, when climate change seems like an atrocious tragedy. [Full review in Spanish]
Our Planet is also exceptional television, but a breezy summer escape through nature, it is not.
Filled with majestic views, dazzling imagery and mesmerising natural spectacles, Our Planet is undoubtedly visually stunning, but it is also traumatising.
Even in his 90s, he remains one of the loudest voices warning of imminent ecological disaster.
Our Planet is not without hope. While the series doesn't directly inform its audience of how to fix this catastrophic problem, it does reassure us that the planet can recover, if we are willing to work together.
Audience Reviews for Our Planet: Season 1
Feb 22, 2021Beautiful, high quality nature series. Next best thing to spending time outdoors, with the huge plus of witnessing rare species and unique behaviors. David Attenborough is a great man living and working his passion which should to some extent be everyone's - it is a dysfunctional anomaly when it is not.
Feb 17, 2021Amazing piece of art. You cannot make animals act like the way they do naturally. Life long experience.
Oct 28, 2020"Our Planet" is one of many nature documentaries that people rave about. I think when it comes to the visual aspect of this show, it is stunning and gorgeous. I truly found myself dumbfounded by how the creators of the series managed to capture this footage. Nature documentaries aren't the most interesting type of show for me, but if they are your thing, this Netflix series is worth checking out. It is a beautiful exploration of different environments all over the world and a reminder that all of us play a bigger hand in sustaining the life of planet Earth.
Sep 23, 2020Beautiful scenes. Amazing documentary, it gives you the problem but also gives you hope.
Sep 01, 2020terrible terrible shaming, watching animals suffer over and over, do not trust the rating of this series
Aug 02, 2020Every episode makes me cry.
Jul 26, 2020A nature documentary series that focuses on the breadth of the diversity of habitats around the world, from the remote Arctic wilderness and mysterious deep oceans to the vast landscapes of Africa and diverse jungles of South America. Narrated by David Attenborough with his legendary voice, he addresses issues of conservation and it's really heartbreaking and upsetting to see the terrible impact humans and global warming have caused to the wonderful nature that surrounds us and the tragic losses of animals, plants and entire ecosystems that are just unavoidable at this point. Urgent call of action!
May 24, 2020It was great to get to see this. It would be nice to get a wild animal you like, like a small wildcat an Ocelot.
May 20, 2020Must Watch Our Planet Behind the Scenes, it is more shock to me how we treat the earth...
May 03, 2020I watch this show after finishing BBC Planet Earth 1 & 2, BBC Life, and Frozen Planet. Feel like even with very nice shots, Our Planet is just combinations of above shows with scenes, storylines, and narratives. Nothing is really new or special in comparison with previous shows.
