Extremely bad picture quality
on 22 October 2016
I'm a huge fan of David Attenborough and his nature series. The Planet Earth and Life series are simply magic, just as the Madagascar series, the Great Barrier Reef series, Life in Cold Blood, The Life of Birds and several others. And sure enough David Attenborough's narrating of this series is excellent as always. However, something clearly went wrong with the picture when this series was transferred to a digital format. I am not talking about the slightly grainy quality you normally get from anything before the digital era. I really don't mind that. But in this dvd, for some reason, there are clearly visible blurry stripes all over the screen. At times it makes the whole thing almost unwatchable. It basically feels like watching tv while wearing someone else's glasses. The picture quality is outrageously bad.
Maybe I got hold of a bad version of this, I don't know. But the one I have is a huge dissapointment and I only give it more than 1 star because of David Attenborough's superb narrating.
