Is It Any Good?

Exploring the world far beneath the waves proves to be not only a visual treat, but an amazing educational lesson. Deep Ocean takes on three distinct scientific explorations, and while things do not always turn out as planned there are plenty of new discoveries to be made. The visuals are stunning, though there could have been less time devoted to faces looking around and better editing to show what was found. The second episode, feature the luminescence qualities of marine life, is fascinating. While the sound is generally good, the voice-over translation of the remarks by the Japanese team is lacking. But what Deep Ocean does do is explore and educate; in that regard, this is a top-drawer documentary.
