Clash of the DinosaursThis show explores dinosaurs inside and out to reveal their structures and the lives they lived.

Extreme Survivors: 120 million years of evolution made dinosaur bodies better adapted to their environment than any mammal today. The latest science reveals the anatomical secrets that made them such incredible survivors.

Perfect Predators: The Cretaceous Period spawned walking death machines with a savage combination of speed, eyesight, brainpower, and razor-sharp implements. The latest science reveals the anatomical secrets of these bloodthirsty carnivores.

The Defenders: Predators don't dominate the Cretaceous, plant eaters do. And their bodies are built to take a beating. The latest science reveals the anatomical secrets that made the world's largest vegetarians such successful survivors in a world of claws and teeth.

Generations: More than a million generations adapted dinosaurs to a changing planet. But each successful generation boils down to a single encounter between two like-minded reptiles. The latest science reveals the anatomical secrets to life and love among dinosaurs.

    What a horrible documentary. 4 minutes segments followed by 5 minute commercials. The segments were just copied and pasted into later segments. After the first 30 minutes everything was a repeat and some of the 1st 30 minutes even repeated. Perhaps, they needed to repeat as I couldn't hear the commentary the 1st time but sometimes not even the 10th time they played the repeated segments.

    One could have made a good and informative documentary in half the time – without repeating EVERYTHING all the time! It left me with the feeling the maker of the documentary think I’m a dimwit!
    Also the music is simply horrible: Too loud and to hectic and if you tune down the noise you can’t hear the scientist any longer.
    All in all could have been a good documentary but sadly it is not!

    Give this one a pass, folks.

    Check out the Walking With Beasts/ Dinosaurs/ Cavemen series instead. It's time better spent, and the little ones will dig it, too. :)

      Oops, I left out (Walking With) Monsters.

    Man I would never mess with raptors. Nastiest animals that ever stalked the wild.

    Not very informative and the repeat scenes are just ridiculous.

    And yeah computer generated animation is costly but they repeat the scientists over and over as well.

    Just poorly made IMHO.

  8. Sacco Svd

    boring, lots of repeated/flipped scenes as Richard mentioned, so many that the documentary feels cheap.

    Light on detail, and lots of repeated/flipped scenes.
    Would be good for kids to watch, but not worth it if you're an adult, and you've seen any of the BBC Dino docs.

      Yes,they could have made it better with less repeated scenes. I guess computer generated animation is costly and time consuming, but my five year old doesn't care. He gets just as concerned the 4th time as the first time when T-Rex fights the Triceratops! He can do Youtube by himself, but gets lost on tangents. This way he can watch a whole show without having to click and point. Great for kids!

    Yea! My son loves dinosaurs. Perfect Predators was very interesting.

    1. Epicurus

      I hope you bought your son the Jurassic Park box set that just came out on Bluray!

      my first interest was Dinosaurs when I was a kid and I wanted to be a paleontologist but I became more interested in digging up humans.

    2. His Forever

      Epicurus: One reason I want to study paleontology at the moment is for the very reason that my son is a first-class dinophile. He's got it bad. They and monter trucks rule the world!

      'Digging up humans..' You mean like Burke and Hare..?
