Tonight, the next landmark natural history series from Discovery and the BBC, Africa, premieres on Discovery Channel starting at 10/9c. From the makers of Frozen Planet, Life and Planet Earth, Africa is a surprising look at a seemingly familiar continent that still holds many secrets.
The premier of this show was last night, and I want to shriek like a little girl: OMG, it was fuckin' awesome! The giraffe fight was even more violent than it showed in the promos. Who knew? Lots of times I had to flip the channel for a minute because something was just a bit much. I couldn't watch when the armored crickets were moving in on the unprotected baby birds, and I didn't catch who won the spider-wasp fight, although I was rooting for the spider. And nighttime black rhino get-togethers at a secret watering-hole? Again, who knew?
I don't even have an HD set, and I thought it was the most beautifully filmed thing I've seen. Definitely looking forward to this show each week.
ETA: Discovery, this almost makes up for the cancellation of Dirty Jobs. It does not, howver, make up for Amish Mafia.
