    A cliche, I know, but anything with David Attenborough has the potential to be life-changing if the time is invested and you give yourself up to it. His latest Life in Cold Blood series was wonderful.

    Michael Palin's Sahara is profound for a bit of worldliness, too.

    I'll get on to those veoh links.

    -How beautiful, this pale Endymion hour.
    -What are you talking about?
    -Endymion, my dear. A beautiful youth possessed by the moon.
    -Well, forget about him and get to bed.
    -Yes, my dear.

    I think "Life on Earth" was probably my first real science book. I can remember being enthralled by it at about age 7. Some of the science was a tad heavy, but the amazing photos and history just carried it for me. It was life changing, I believe. Like a childhood enlightenment

    That series was amazing. The first three I remember having me interested, then number 4 came on. It's title was "The Deep", and Lo! It was badass.

    Also, do you remember that one, I think it was "After the Dinosaurs", that detailed the life that arose immediately after the Cretaceous–Tertiary extinction, and basically tracked the "Age of Mammals"?

    That was awesome.

    I don't have the "Blue Planet" one. Never seen it. If I like Planet Earth, I might check that one out afterwards.

    Baraka was really cool. We watched it at school once, no one had any idea what the hell was going on, but I thought it was cool (and I think I got the "meaning" of it, too, if there is one).

    Planet Earth is such an amazing series. We watched it in Science in grade 10, I loved it. I wouldn't mind seeing it again. I loved how well shot it was and how much veriety there was to it.

    I'd also like to note: Beautiful animals, usually smaller ones, but in the case of big cats it still applies.. that is what "Didums" means to me. Thats why I've got this cute little anteater avatar, its a "didums" to me, I don't know if the word has any real meaning but it doesn't matter lol.
