The springboks were good, eh?
Plus that massively climactic battle ontop of a daisy, culminating in one of the insects hanging onto the other's leg for dear life and then seemingly falling to it's doom. Then the best bit the other insect looking down at it as if to say "WHASSUP NOW BIATCH!111!!"
Would prefer it if everything in nature got along, to be honest, apart from giraffes - they've got my permission to knock fuck out of each other.
I'm off for a couple of rolls and sausage, will check back on this thread after.
I know this makes me a masssive crybaby, but i just can't watch it.
They were positively prancing.
The bit when the sharks were eating something that was very dead and disn't even look much like the thing that it was...? Freak.
I can't risk watching the whole episode though. It will be like The Watership Down Incident of 1995, from which I'm not yet fully recovered.
but that sea battle at the end, although impressive, has been loads of times. Sort it out Dave.
It's not been to that extent, with the big bastard whale indulging in massively inefficient lunges towards the surface. I know you probably got your fill of whales from Free Willy, but that footage last night was incredible.
Pretty sure there was more or less exactly the same scene in Blue Planet where a load of different animals, including one whale, ate a big ball of fish until it was gone. There was also a great, and rather poignant, shot at the end of all the fish scales left floating in the water.
the scene you're referring to is whale-free i'm afraid. It's mainly sailfish/marlin as I recall, with birds getting involved as well. These are just facts.
I was wrong about the whale and the fish scales. I'm confusing this one from Blue Planet with Tune - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=B6M_XgiONoo , with this one with a whale and fish and birds - from another BBC show - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=quwebVjAEJA. But there is definitely also one with a Marlin as well, you're right.
Take home comment - too many fish balls.
you can tune a piano.
No birds or marlin in the scene I was referring to initially.
Reckoning hates nature so didn't see it.
his awfully disfigured head will explode.
what a great fucking word.
I might have a cheeky pronk later if anyone fancies joining me...
Dave - 'man who'd be a fish, you get fucked from all sides by everyone else'
Chris - 'just like the jews'
was anyone else totally creeped out by those giant kingfish who swam all the way upriver then proceeded to form a circle pit for days with no apparent reason or ryhme before heading back to sea?
Perfectly normal behaviour.
Anyone else notice that the music has been a bit Bond-like? Very much 'You only live twice' inspired last night when the rocket is about to launch.
Remove the graphics, add a few words from Dicky. Bosh. A few minutes of the programme filled, cheap as (fish &) chips.
my boyfriend's theory was that they're sorting out who gets to be the King of the Kingfish each year. I reckon it's just like a Kingfish disco though.
without resort to a VPN.
...did anyone else expect to see Attenborough buried to his waist in sand and turned into a sand mermaid?
I did shout abuse at those bloody birds grabbing those turtles, though.
