    Anyone watch this show? There was somewhat of a marathon on Sunday and I never left the recliner. There are HD downloads off the BBC (UK windows users). If you have been looking to exercise your HDTV this is definitely the show.

    It'll be worth the $200 HD DVD Player.

    Is it true that they redubbed over David Attenborough's narrative with Sigourney Weaver's voice for the US broadcast? What a travesty.

    All I heard was Sigorney Weaver, so I guess so.

    No? Why do US TV stations insist on doing that? Is the Brit accent really *that* annoying?

    Not that it is annoying but threatening. American women are like butter when they hear it so we are just taking preventive action (unless you're from Wales).

    The companion series for the oceans - the Blue Planet - is similarly breathtaking (although there is some content overlap; the beeb has a soft-spot for penguins & polar bears)
