4.0 out of 5 stars Giant Squid, Flying Fish & Hopping Snails 5 Sep 2005
By T. R. Alexander TOP 1000 REVIEWER VINE VOICE

The basic premise of this series is what the world would look like in 5 million, 100 million and 200 million years in the future if humans were taken out of the equation. Each of the thirteen parts of this series details a single ecosystem from one of the three time periods and tells you about the weird and wonderful plants and animals that live there. As well as this the program also lets you into the minds of the scientists that predicted these creatures, using contemporary animals as a starting point and extrapolating the likely evolutionary forces that will affect them to create the animals of the future. The graphics used to bring these future worlds to life are great, combining CGI with film and photography to produce some beautiful vistas, though there are some inconsistencies when CGI creatures interact with this environment but this is only to be expected. I would say that this is a must buy for anyone interested in evolution or the natural world.

4.0 out of 5 stars questionable but entertaining 14 Dec 2004
This is a TV series which sets to hypothesise what might be living on the Earth thousands to millions of years from now... The immediate question is "How can anyone possibly know?". Well, they don't. The point is to make educated guesses at what may exist, and this it does well. The creatures are all based on modern day or even extinct species, and have been suitably altered and placed in an environment of the future. Rudimentary but acceptable computer graphics are used to show the animals in their 'narural' habitats. It is narrated, and also has insights from biologists and zoologists who suggest how the animal might live. All very questionable, but still entertaining.

This DVD has kept my son very happy for many hours. Was a great gift and in excellent quality.

An interesting premise for the DVD, what might be alive and kicking many years from now . . . interesting choice of creatures. Certainly gets the mind thinking! :o)

5.0 out of 5 stars Postvolution 3 Sep 2010
By Ken Raus VINE VOICE
Verified Purchase
This is an intriguing series except perhaps for classical Christian and other anthropocentric monotheists-The idea of prophetic developments derives naturally from the detective naturalism of Darwin and others reconstructive theories from the vantage point of our relative cultural present and presence.
The possible creatures are not merely as weird as the grotesque fantasies of Science Fiction but are a kind of literal Sci-Fi themselves and the series theme follows the pessimistic trend of various recent apocalyptic disaster and empty world forecast films-Some of the Scientists seem notably eccentric and are excellent entertainment in their own right but there is also much lengthy interessant and provocative information and speculation to digest as well as the spectacle of the bizarre beasts to observe which is oddly redolent of those hybrid animals mediaeval artists were wont to offload skeches of,on vellum...There are seven good extras including an interview and the whole thing is excellent for the curious and imaginative mind that wonders as much about Outer and Inner Time as it does about Space and the Cosmos,Both Micro and Macrocosmic-I didn't find the computer graphics too rough and the series is digestible episode by episode-I highly recommend it as a superior edutainment.

As a piece of mindless entertainment this DVD is all well and good, but by failing to understand that evolution (along with global warming, 911 and the broadcaster Keith Chegwin*) are all LIES(!) it does it's viewers no justice.

The future will certainly be wild for you if you do not accept the love of your Lord and Savior into your hearts- you will burn in hell for all eternity!

*Cheggers Plays Pop was not a real telivision show but an elaborate spoof created by Leftist tendencies in the BBC. Chegwin himself was controlled by a dwarf in the rafters with a wire truss.
