HDTV is interesting. Especially when watching the Discovery channel in HD. It's all to easy to just veg out and watch the splendor. Maybe it's because this planet is pretty spectacular when we aren't screwing it up. I mean come on, mother nature rocks. If you are into nature and the world around you, you'll probably want to check out the "Planet Earth" series that starts this Sunday at 8pm EST.
Here's the description of the series:
More than five years in the making, PLANET EARTH redefines blue-chip natural history filmmaking and continues the Discovery Channel mission to provide the highest quality programming in the world. The 11-part series will amaze viewers with never-before-seen animal behaviors, startling views of locations captured by cameras for the first time, and unprecedented high-definition production techniques. Award-winning actress and conservationist Sigourney Weaver is the series' narrator.
PLANET EARTH airs on consecutive Sundays from March 25 through April 22, 2007, on Discovery Channel and in high definition on Discovery HD Theater. Get an email reminder!
That isn't all. The folks at Discovery have a Planet Earth Game so check it out. And if for some reason you don't have cable tv and don't get the Discovery Channel, you can always buy the complete Planet Earth BBC HD DVD set at amazon.com or the regular DVD set at the shopping.discovery.com website.
