Movie Reviews

Wonderful celebration of wildlife
M. C Cardoso | Berkeley, CA United States | 11/17/2008
(5 out of 5 stars)

"If you are a naturalist and wildlife enthusiast, then this box set is for you. Includes all episodes of all 12 seasons of the high-quality series that first aired on PBS for most of the '80s and early nineties. Some of the production aspects are dated, of course, such as the orchestral arrangements for the soundtrack and haircuts and fashion, but other than that this series is a feast for the eyes and the mind. The footage is very compelling, from close-ups of the animals in dynamic behaviour to panoramic views of all wildlife sanctuaries in America, from Yellowstone, the Rockies, the Everglades, Alaska and much more! Beyond tons of great animal action and sound explanation of their biology and ecology, the series shares practical advice on how to observe wildlife in the outdoors and the importance of conservation.

While I consider this terrific family "edutainment", be informed that there are dramatic scenes of chases and predation that are bloody and often ends with the cute animal being killed and eaten by a predator. While most adult nature enthusiasts understand this is an essential facet of animal life, such scenes could upset young children. In any case, the narration consistently reminds of the ecological imperative of predation and avoids sensationalism, so in fact it might be a good way to introduce your kids to "animal violence".

This is a labour of love and a celebration of wildlife. "Wild America" was a series that always respected the natural world and the intelligence of the audience. Highly recommended!"
Excellent

"I had high hopes when I bought this complete dvd set of the Wild America series. I was not disappointed. The video quality is very good. Everyone that I watch this with comments on how superb and fascinating the Wild America programs are. I sometimes take a disc with me when visiting a friend or relative. When the program starts, everyone is transfixed by nature's beauty that is captured in this excepional tv series. Marty Stouffer does an excellent job of filming and providing commentary on the many wild animals and scenic locations. I never get tired of watching this, and 120 episodes on 24 discs is a lot of material to watch.
I can honestly say that this is one of the most worthwhile investments that I have ever made, one that the entire family will enjoy."

"An excellent family viewing experience. Though the sharpness of the DVD does not compare with Blue Ray the scenery is spectacular. A well done series which I watched on PBS many years ago and now share with my wife and grandchildren. Highly recommended."

"This is a one of a kind TV Documentary Series. Marty Stouffer's Wild America is outstanding. The Cinematography is second to none. I highly reccomend this series for adults and children. It is one of the most educational series I've ever seen. For wildlife enthusiasts, this series is the very best."
