Is It Any Good?

Attenborough personifies the animals by giving them names that connect with their characters -- like Jezebel for the feisty female leader of the lemur pack. He describes the group as the Westside Gang, saying they live in a rough neighborhood where they must fight to protect their turf. This method of drawing viewers into the animals' dramas is effective, especially for younger viewers, but can sometimes border on silly.

That said, the footage of the animals is fascinating. Watching the creatures' dramas unfold -- such as when Jezebel's baby falls off her back during a particularly vicious fight -- can be gripping. Viewers will be hard-pressed to remain emotionless during the animals' struggles and hard-fought successes.
