don't let the title fool you

The tv show uses science of life on earth to predict what life on alien worlds could be like. However, most of the show doesn't even focus on alien life. It just tells the audience facts about earth life that most people probably already know. Each episodes spends about 2-4 minutes on the actual alien planet the rest of the show is just about life on earth. If you still are planing to watch it, you may want to watch out for the violence. Some of the aliens eat each other and blood splatters, but it doesn't last long. In episode 3, you see a close up shot of plant fungus growing out of aliens dead bodies.

This title has:

Too much violence
