On a unique underwater voyage spanning millions of years in prehistory, our dauntless presenter explores seven different seas, encountering an extraordinary variety of underwater life from seven different eras. His journey culminates in the late Cretaceous period - the most dangerous period ever in the ocean; the time of the awesome mosasaurs, a 20-metre-long monster with a mouth that could bite a tree in half. Before this period there are many other challenges the explorer must tackle first. In the Triassic period 230 million years ago, he meets and attempts to feed a six-metre nothosaur and the serpent-necked tanystropheus. Further back 400 million years ago and the plants have yet to evolve. The seas are terrorised by giant sea scorpions and even more monstrous, the 12-metre long tentacled orthocones. How does our expert plan to approach these terrible creatures?Written by
The last segment takes place 75 million years ago. In one shot, a Tyrannosaurus rex makes a cameo, yet the species only evolved millions of years later. It could be argued that this is another kind of dinosaur related to T. rex, but it look no different than the series' former depiction of the animal. See more »
A tour through the most dangerous seas of all time
One year after Chased by Dinosaurs Mr Marven goes yet again in a time traveling adventure ,this guy should be pair up with the Doctor ,they would be a great team. To the main subject "Sea Monsters" is a three part series ,in which Nigel goes in to the most dangerous of prehistory in order to show what creatures ones called the ocean their kingdom and some of them are quit odd ,for a lack of a better word. It was a great experience to see this real life leviathans swim around and the way the crew tries to study them was not amazing ,but nevertheless a interesting subject ,which will have you hocked( no pun intended).
The reason why I did not score higher is the ending ,which is a cliff hanger and in all honesty, it did not need to be that way ,although if they continue the series and show me what happened it would be better from my point of view. Not that it is diminish the quality of that series , as its on I have seen it about four times ,like with all the Walking with program and still I am going to recommended it for those ,who want to watch a quality documentary, which unfortunately are a thing of a past I fear. Happy bench watch to everyone.
