"Planet Earth II" is one of BBC’s most gorgeous documentary series to date. BBC and David Attenborough have created yet another documentary masterpiece. This series takes viewers on a journey around the world to many different natural landscapes with diverse and incredible wildlife as well as covering a section of wildlife in urban environments. The photography is incredible. The filmmakers use innovative remote cameras in order to get incredibly close to the animals that they were filming. There are mesmerizing scenes of birds soaring in the blue sky, captivating green of leaves trembling in wake of monkeys jumping over them, the enchanting scene of Nubian Ibex baby deftly climbing down the cliff and dodging the red fox, the eye relieving sight of flamingos parading in a single line and all the grandeur of mountains. This series also presents a warning about climate change having an enormous influence on life on Earth and gives very valuable messages about what humanity can do to take better care of Planet Earth. Once again, David Attenborough does a flawless in providing very informative narration. Hans Zimmer composed an excellent music score for the series. An absolutely gorgeous sequel to Planet Earth. The sheer beauty of Planet Earth and different wildlife species is shown closer than ever. BBC's Planet Earth II is clearly outstanding in every sense of the word. Highly recommended for BBC documentary fans, nature and animal lovers, and environmental advocates who want to preserve the Earth's wildlife diversity and fragile ecosystems.
God love Sir Attenborough. This man has done more for ecology & all of the species on our planet, including US, than even he is probably aware of. His quest to open our eyes & minds to the unrivaled majesty of the Earth should be seen as a gentle crusade to end wanton destruction and ignorance. The world is richer with him in it and will become substantially poorer when he leaves it.

BBC's distribution strategy is stuck in the dark ages. Do a Google search of the old man in charge of BBC and read some of his antiquated ideas. The people I know who pirate content have seen ALL the episodes a while back. I would glady pay to watch them, but they make the paying customer suffer...while the non-paying customer enjoy the show at their leisure. I can't wait until Netflix starts producing their own nature documentaries with the same people that did Planet Earth...it's coming in 2019. Top Gear is on Amazon Prime right now. So after that not a single sane person would pay for BBC to control the way they enjoy the content, and they are digging their own grave.
