5.0 out of 5 stars It does get much better than this., 2 Oct. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Extreme Fishing with Robson Green Series 1-4 Boxed Set [DVD] (DVD)
This is a documentary about fishing. Robson Green talks about different fish, some of which have to come up for air so they get some oxygen in them. This is just like dolphins do, as all fish need air to breathe. Robson doesn't get bogged down with misinforming the viewer like that Attenborough nonsense Blue Planet does, no, this is all about catching fish and putting them back, or eating them or watching them escape.

Having said that, there is an over reliance on CGI fish. CGI, which stands for Computer Game Images, is used to fill in the gaps between reality and TV. Some of the fish are a different colour when they are underwater, yet they are a different colour out of the water. I checked my trunks when I went swimming, and they were red out of the water and in the water, so Robson didn't spend much on his CGI. Using Computer Game Images is understandable as there is a lot of bobbins talked about by so called sea doctors telling us about rare fish and pollution.

Fish only have themselves to blame. If evolution was true, it would still be happening somewhere, and if swimming about in your own and others fish wee and fish poo doesn't make you want to come onto land and invent a toilet then Charles Dickens Theory of Evolution is a fairy tale.

All four series' of Robson's programme are on a bunch of discs. Some are better than others as they vary in quality and entertainment. The competitive ones are not very exciting though, even with snappy editing and Robson acting daft. There are some nice countries he visits, with occasional facts thrown in, but not much land based information. There is definitely are bias towards coasts, seas and rivers. No forests, mountains or deserts at all.

Jeremy Flynn, his singing partner in a duo they were in does some of the camera work on this show according to the extras on one disc, sadly, all the other discs contain the same extras, which consist of lots of photos of Robson looking cheeky at the cameraman. I wasn't sure what to do with the extras, they really were just lots of pictures of Robson.

Oh my goodness, Tupper you old swine. I see the evolution of your Amazon product trolling has become jaded. Is there still a niche audience floating about for this tiresome tomfoolery? *looks at comment section* Well, ah ha, lets make that last question rhetorical. What became of your ego fluffer, Norcs?

Yes, and it has the same number too.

Not as old as you :)

When evolution has reached its limit, it cannot improve.

Yes there is.

To make it rhetorical you should have used a rhetorical question mark.

He's progressed to physical.
