Synopsis

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. —Discovery

Very good, but needs more continental view besides USA

For a series called North America, it seemed too focused to the US market and called some places that were Canadian, American, and some Canadian inhabitants, American. I'd like to see a more continental and balanced viewpoint in some terminology in the narration. OK, that's my only gripe really here.

Photography and production were first rate and I do recommend this. Shows of this calibre deserves a good reception because we need to see more stuff like this and take better pride of our great continent. The BBC sets the benchmark for this type of documentary, but this is a very worthy contender and I will definitely be watching all of this series. The cinematography is stunning and it's a definite must see.

Patriotism in a Nature Documentary?

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.

You've gotta see this one....

"North America" is a nature show about the animals of North America that has been shown on the Discovery Channel here in the States. While I have not seen all the episodes, I was blown away by "North America". As I sat and watched with my aunt and uncle, I just couldn't believe the cinematography--and it simply looked too good for television. It has about the best camera work of any show I can recall--with breathtaking scenery, clips of animals doing things you've never seen on film before, and a scope that is incredible. Seen on a large HD TV, it is simply a delight. Now I would give the show a 10 but for one small annoyance. Too often the filmmakers thought it would be clever to show clips of these animals set to pop music (such as a pika running about set to the tune "9 to 5") and I found this really annoying and took me out of the moment. Still, a minor crime in an otherwise impeccable show.

By the way, although the show is called "North America", it only seems to be about the animals of the US and Canada--not the rest of North America (such as Mexico, Belize, and the Caribbean).
