I totally didn't just grab a Kleenex and then make Mr. Prim watch it too, with me. Totally not.

I couldn't watch it all the way through to the end. Too much.

I have the Planet Earth series, and most, if not all of those clips are from that. I guess that made me a bit desensitized. I liked it, but I didn't find it emotional.

That's a beautiful series. I've only seen bits of it, though.

"Frozen Planet" will be narrated by Alec Baldwin.


Apparently it will be shown here on the Discovery Channel in March, and we get Alec instead of David. Rar. Hopefully when the discs come out, we will have a choice of narrators.

What is wrong with these people? :x David Attenborough's got a wonderful voice. Is Discovery afraid its American audience is too dim to understand him? :x

Thankfully, the Blue Planet and Planet Earth versions I have are with Attenborough. I couldn't watch them with Sigourney Weaver or Oprah. :puke:
