"This is a fabulous, entertaining little series. My sons LOVE them- its kind of Walking With Dinosaurs meets the Crocodile Hunter. Nigel is wonderful, the dinosaurs are well-done, and the pace keeps right on movin'. Put this with Chased By Dinosaurs, and you have a ton of fun. I hope he does more seasons of this! We want to know what happens next, and what animals Nigel will bring back next, at Prehistoric Park!"

"I'm 21 and even I loved this DVD. If you liked Jurassic Park, you haven't seen anything yet. An absolutely fascinating watch for anyone, no matter the age, who has ever had even the slightest interest in prehistoric animals. Huge round of applause for Animal Planet successfully bridging the gap between entertainment and education. The cinematography is breath-taking, the acting is surprisingly well done, the facts are not made up by Hollywood, and there's even gory dino battles! I'm speechless. Even the hairs on my arm went up. Yowza. This DVD is worth every penny and will continue to be a captivating DVD even after Season II premieres. ;) If you liked this, check out the "Walking With Dinosaurs" series from the BBC, as well, and keep a sharp eye for Zoo Tycoon II: Exctinct Animals, if you want to take a stab at running your own digital prehistoric zoo. Exciting stuff, my friends, exciting stuff.

**On a side note, if you have really young children (under 10 perhaps?) you may want to watch it with them, but Prehistoric Park presents extinct animals just as any nature show would, so keep in mind it's tasteful."
Fantastic! If you liked "Chased by Dinosaurs" you will love

"A great six-episode series featuring Chased by Dinosaur's Nigel Marvin. This series combines the Chased by Dinosaurs time-travel premise with the premise of Jurassic Park. Nigel travels back to various points in prehistory to rescue extinct animals and bring them back to the present, to "Prehistoric Park".

Of course, you have to ignore the fact that a few individuals do not constitute a viable breeding population, not to mention the fact that the "time gate" consists of two stick-like instruments which Nigel just turns on and sticks into the ground to create a "doorway". But if you can suspend your disbelief, this show is great fun.

Of all the things my 4 and 6 year old daughters like to watch (over and over and over and over), this is by far one of the most bearable for Mommy. Highly recommended, we watch it almost every night."
Great show

"Our family loved this series so much that I HAD to pre-order so I could get it as soon as possible. Quality of DVD etc is excellent (If you take the box apart you will discover a map of Prehistoric Park lining the box set sleeve. An odd touch for a part of the box that would normally never ever be seen, I just happened to be cutting it apart.) Quality of the shows, even better.

The paleontology is all intelligent guesses but they are not bad guesses. The animation puppetry etc are just as fine as in the origional "Walking With Dinosaurs". And then there is the fun with Nigel Marvin! He is a real naturalist who can be seen on Animal Planet, and with every hare-brained capture for the Park, my Mum and I would say, "That is just what Nigel would really do!" He has his 'film crew' with him and some of the footage purports to be of their eye-view adventures, such as a shot of Nigel in a tree talking to whomever is holding the camera, or a shot suddenly going wild as an animal charges and the crewman drops the camera and scrambles for safety. This technique to add authenticity is a bit overdone by the "Walking With" people in their shows but is strangely more realistic where Nigel is involved.

Some of the series involves not the captures but settling in the new inhabitents of the Prehistoric Park. These bits are sometimes the best although the humour involving the beleagured park manager Bob is a little much. But then, in zoos and parks world-wide the keepers find themselves in humourous situations because animals are just like that.

If you like this one, check out it's predecessor, "Chased by Dinosaurs" which is Nigel Marvin visiting the past and trying to study animals without being eaten. Which again is just what he'd do in a heartbeat if given the chance."
