So, this really cool Discovery Channel mini-series, Planet Earth, premiered last night with the airing of the first three out of eleven total episodes: “From Pole to Pole,” “Mountains” and “Ocean Deep.” I missed it (totally forgot about it, actually), but it looked awesome in the movie-theater trailer I saw a few weeks ago, and it’s getting rave reviews.
The first three episodes will be re-aired this Sunday from 11am-2pm EDT, and then the next two episodes, “Deserts” and “Ice Worlds,” will premiere that night from 8pm-10pm (and then air again from midnight-2am). I only wish I had an HDTV to watch them on! You can see the schedule of new episodes for yourself here, or browse the whole Discovery Channel schedule here.
