Our Planet That Look Like Planets

Lucy Mangen of The Guardian gives out 4 out of 5 stars to Our Planet, saying “it places clearer emphasis on the fragility and interconnectedness of all the species and eco-systems on display, and on the huge impact humanity has had on them in so short a time. Bryan Resnick of Vox praises the series as “can’t really describe the scale of what’s missing” stating “It reminds us we’re living in an age of staggering wildlife loss due to human development, over-fishing, deforestation, and climate change. This series doesn’t let us forget that. Humans have caused staggering amounts of wildlife loss. Our Planet doesn’t hide from it. ” Ben Travers of Indie Wire give out an overall B+ for the series, and claims that the series ruthlessly contrasts the world’s natural wonders with the environmental crisis killing them off, he wrote “Their deaths are a warning for the darkness underlying all of Our Planet, a nature docuseries no longer content with passive commentary. It also offers all the stunning imagery you’ve come to expect from these documentarians, but its attitude may surprise you. Individual entries feel a little less memorable because of it. The light, comic touches that made for lovely little moments in Planet Earth are overshadowed, if not spoiled entirely, by the traumatic lessons put front and centre. ”
