Don't waste your time.

Unless you have a child 7 or under, Don't bother with this. Constant rehash of stock footage, the narrator is not only very annoying, and comments on things off topic and tries to portray lava and other natural occurrences such as volcanoes and tsunami as vengeful and alive. Total trash.

This title has:

Too much violence
Too much swearing

Is It Any Good?

Not only will Amazing Planet educate the whole family about the scientific processes that created the earth as we know it, but it will also inspire viewers to think about the future of the planet and how to preserve its well-being. (The series occasionally touches on the potential hazards of the current global warming trend, but that's just the tip of the proverbial conservation iceberg.)
