Storyline

Sweeping across some of the most diverse landscapes on the planet, North America takes viewers from the silent grandeur of lofty snowcapped peaks to fertile forests and dramatic windswept coasts. The continent's unique geography creates some of the most extreme weather on the planet. Wild animals living in these astonishing and sometimes brutal habitats must be fiercely resilient sharing that human spirit the continent is known for. From jaguars to spinner sharks, wolves that fish to wolverines high in the mountains, this is North America. Written by Discovery

Patriotism in a Nature Documentary?
28 May 2013 | by ibn-1See all my reviews

The photography is fantastic, however the narration is exceedingly poor. A curious melange; assuming your audience is a naive eight year old whose never experienced nature, coupled to a especially bold level of American Jingoism. I've never heard such chauvinistic patriotism in a Nature Documentary.

It comes across as Americana delirium mated to beautiful visuals, like a pet propaganda project. The Music is often misplaced and overwrought as well... when they shut up and just show the wonderful visuals it's a striking meditation on Nature, but those moments are few. It's a shame that visual genius was coupled to written lunacy.
