El Cosmico here...the BBC's excellent Walking With Dinosaurs, which was recently broadcast on the Discovery Channel, is going to be rebroadcast twice this Thursday, at 8 p.m. and 11 p.m. Eastern Time.
I had a chance to check it out this past Sunday, and I've got to say, it had some outstandingly cool stuff. After all, it was narrated by Avery Brooks, who is one of the most badass actors ever, and certainly one of the best narrators around. Let's face it, we're probably never going to really know what these creatures were like, but this outstanding 3 hour special is worth watching just to get a little bit of insight, and because it's got some of the finest computer animation around. Oh, and the reason they're rebroadcasting? It got the highest ratings EVER on the Discovery Channel, drawing 10.7 million viewers (that's more than tuned into Fox and NBC). A total of 40 million watched some part of this show...that's a hell of a lot of people for a show on the Discovery Channel. Oh, and unlike Disney's Dinosaur, these dinos don't talk or coexist with evolved primates!
So....watch it if you get a chance. Damn good stuff.
