This review is from: Life [Blu-ray] [Region Free] (Blu-ray)
If you watched 'Life' on TV and are wondering right away if it's worth splashing out the extra money on the blu-ray, then absolutely yes. The cameras they filmed this series on are beasts and HD really does them justice, i still am flabbergasted by some shots, both at the quality and how they GOT them.
If however you're looking for something to flesh out your blu-ray collection and haven't yet seen life, then you're in for the biggest treat of all. Learning about animals is only one part of the appeal of the series. Theres education, Visual Treats, and convincing drama. This is possible because of the superb editing and voice over, they build up characters for the animals and you begin to really be interested in their storys, even if they are only 5 minutes or so each. Right now i'm watching a new episode and am typing without looking at the screen for the most-part to see if this little animal will escape, it's that good.
As an added bonus, the 'On location' segments at the end of every episode are mini-docs following the crew themselves as they attempt to get the amazing footage you've been sitting in awe at. These sections are filmed in a mix of HD and SD, but it really doesn't effect what is an appealing extra for me as a student filming docs myself. The one following the crew trying to film komodo dragons was especially good.
Overall, 100% reccomended, i'm only 1 disk of 4 in, and i already feel i've got my monies worth.
