    Having your own production company can be a good thing. :)

    Really wish I wasn't so lame. This looks incredible. I just cannot watch animals eat each other. Yes, I get it, I just can't see it. That ruins my ability to watch all the amazing animal shows, especially anything to do with big cats, which are my favorites.

    Yeah, these shows inevitably devolve into 'let's watch the animals murder each other', but I wish they could just focus on the spectacular cinematography aspect for an entire hour without that other stuff.

    They really can’t avoid that, it is nature, but BBC does not dwell on it and I don’t think it’s more than 1% of the Documentary. There are some really sad parts, I was watching Blue Planet II today and it was really sad when they showed the sperm whale who’s calf had died and the mother carried it with her for a few weeks.

    I know that happens in nature but it's the producers who choose how to edit the program together. I feel they historically emphasize the gory stuff because they think that's what people want to see or what helps the ratings, or because they themselves are just as zoosadistic as they think the audience is.

    I always thought I was the only one. People give me a ration if I say it, so I usually keep it to myself. Like you, I do get it but I simply cannot see animals getting hurt in any way. That's just how I am and, also like you, it does keep me from watching some nature shows that I would otherwise love to watch.
