Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Friday, February 17, 2017

The BBC nature series Planet Earth II doesn't debut on BBC America until Saturday, but one of its scenes has already been viewed online more than 9 million times. The two-minute clip shows a baby iguana running for its life through a pit of hungry snakes. (Does he make it? Watch the clip below to find out ...)

Planet Earth II uses all the narrative devices of narrative film-making -- there's emotional scoring, heavy editing and most crucially, an individual animal's struggle to survive.

Narrated by famed naturalist David Attenborough, Planet Earth was one of the first blockbuster high-definition TV shows a decade ago. Now, it's filmed in ultra-high-def. Drones and light-weight steady cams bring viewers right up next to animals.

I don't have satellite anymore or cable either. But I'd love to watch this. I guess I'll have to buy Blu Rays, or pirate....
