I’ve seen the first four episodes and can sum up my review in three words: “Wow! Love it!”.  For a more thorough review check out my friend April MacIntyre’s review at Monsters & Critics.  She also has some conversations with the series’ producers about how they managed some of the amazing cinematography.

You can explore more on the web site that will feature videos & games, an interactive endangered species map, breathtaking photography and much more in the coming weeks. Additionally, Discovery Channel fans can learn all about the #factsoflife by following @LifeonDiscovery on Twitter and becoming a fan on Facebook at

*Yes,  I know that the series already aired in the UK and Canada.  This is about the US premiere on Discovery.
