Incredible. Not only have I learned even more that Earth is rapt with beauty unchallenged, I have also learned that baby cheetahs are adorable when they yawn

It reminds me of my journey to the wilds of Afghanistan. We lost our corkscrew and had to survive on nothing but food and water for several days.

Breathtaking. The M83 ditty helped immensely.

I could have done without the clip of Red Bull X-Fighters in there, but nitpicking.

That was pretty cool, and a great support for owning a helicopter. Earlier my page decided to go back button and lost my comment. I had some smart-ass comment about oil and the animals, I don't think I'll reproduce it.

pretty video.

the first three minutes of earth were good but after that it quickly evolves into some kind of extreme sports fap fest.

Pretty much this. I'll also mention that a very big chunk of the first half is ripped straight from "Planet Earth" which is infinitely better in its entirety than this video.

All you farkers posting 'Seen it on other shows' are completely missing the farking point. You double down by posting about it.


"I've seen boobies before on other ladies, I'm not impressed."
"Once, I played another game that was fun too, I'm not impressed."
"Oh your grandmother died? Both of mine are dead so...."

actually no, he makes it just fine.

I remember the first time I watched the Planet Earth series. It was like a religious experience for me. I was in total awe of the beauty they captured. A lot of hard work went into that. and it's probably my favorite of all my blu rays.

Except I'm really not impressed. Seeing snippits from a much better overall showcase of Planet Earth (appropriately titled Planet Earth) and then being capped off with xtreme sports isn't my idea of an entertaining video to watch. Sitting through the entire 6 minutes, I feel that it's okay for me to make that assessment.

I appreciate Earth and all of its magnificant beauty. So sure, this video might've briefly encouraged me to reflect upon that. In general, though, it just didn't do anything for me. I honestly don't see how you can have a problem with somebody expressing their opinion, especially when they at least attempt to explain their reasoning.

Well, you've explained your reasoning but you're the first. I just think it's kind of threadshiatting to take the time to post 'Meh'-like comments. I've seen better videos than this too, but, that doesn't detract from the video, nor does it become a cause.

Fair enough. I'm now itching to watch some of my BBC Planet Earth collection on Blu Ray when I get home, so I'll definitely give the video credit there.

If by extreme sports you mean the kid rolling the tire, then well ok. I didn't seem any extreme sports in that clip. Post-video advert perhaps?

If it's a post video advert it's blended pretty seamlessly. I had it too. Went from being beautiful to annoying.

The first half of this video was so super cute and awesome, but then the extreme sports shows up.
Extreme sports made the video seem more like a lead in to the X games. (Athletes training in the open wilderness.)

I'm a sucker for baby animals, cool vistas, and soulful music. But that video lacked any noticible organization.

Ocean, penguin, human, cheetah, avalanche, baby duck, beach...

Did some intern find the video suite on the T: drive again?

Typical Let's-Cut-And-Paste-From-Other-People' s-Works-And-Promote-It-To-Get-Cl icks lameness. Complete with a cheesy soundtrack, amateur editing including parts with wrong aspect ratio, and assholes who contaminate pristine wildlife with their motorcycles.

I saw series footage cut in here from both of those. (haven't watch the others) This Edis Production guy is trying to pass off the work like he actually made it...

This. I wouldn't be so cynical about it if the video hadn't specifically put in a comment about "getting lost in nature". 'Cause yeah, the first thing I think of when I think of a beautiful, unspoiled landscape is a motorbike roaring through and ripping the shiat out of the land.
