This review is from: Fry's Planet Word [DVD] (DVD)
I watched it when it was on TV and thought it was excellent. The huge range of topics that Fry covers is phenomenal and fascinating, and it is all done in his distinctive, presentable style. The combination of 'Stephen Fry' and 'exploring language' is pretty much a winning formula, and Planet Word is brilliant for anyone with any level of curiosity about language.
My only criticism would be that the DVD isn't packaged very clearly: the whole five episodes are on two discs, but it isn't made clear which episodes are on which disc. The only other negative I have about Planet Word is that there isn't more of it.
