Performance

The previews, setups and menu audio on the disks were fine, but when it came to actually watching each chapter there was NO audio with these main scenes/chapters. Just to make sure it was not my hardware I immediately tried Planet Earth and all was well, so it was not my hardware. I have a Magnavox Blu-ray player (NB500MGX A). I even went through their latest firmware upgrade process, but nothing changed with this upgrade. I have seen this same problem only once before with the Wall-E Blu-ray DVD. But I also have not played a whole lot of Blu-ray disks. I'm not finding this problem being discussed anywhere else, so thought I better post this warning. Hopefully Buy.com will help me contact the disk producers and figure out exactly where the problem lies. Is this a disk manufacturing problem or is it some issue with my player and particular disk audio creation techniques? Just strange that Planet Earth is fine, but Life by the same production company has the problem.

Stunning!!!

by Jose on 3/29/2012

The series Life on bluray is simply stunning it shows our beautiful planet we live on. The 1080p video is great to show off your tv. If you own a bluray collection this set must be in it. This set not only shows the planet but also various animals we share the planet with. The set includes 4 discs with each disc pretty much seperating the animals to stay organized. Read More

Editors Note
Note The producers of PLANET EARTH explore some truly remarkable creatures and their unique habitats, many of which have never been captured on camera before. Star nosed moles, Zambian bats, and the Vogelkop bowerbird are just a few of the creature's you'll encounter as the filmmakers take viewers to distant continents, using state-of-the-art filming techniques to drift along with migrating elephants, soar through the sky with monarch butterflies, and witness a mating battle (also known as a "heat run") between male humpback whales. A two week visit with some Komodo dragons allows us to witness with striking detail how the mighty, ancient beasts can manage the unique feat of taking down an animal that towers over them in size. The series concludes with a "making-of" special which reveals how the dedicated filmmakers worked for more than four years to deliver a nature series with the power to take your breath away. Narrated by David Attenborugh.
