Do you hae the discovery channel, or Discovery HD Theater?  If so then I suggest you set your Tivo, DVR, or VCR to record all the rest of the episodes of Planet Earth.  The series recorded over 5 years with new camera technologies allowed for footage that we have never seen before, and it is amazing footage.  Shot in full HD, and sent to you in either HD or the best possible image for regular TV's, it if nothing else is truly beautiful and some of the best looking footage I have ever seen.  

However breathtaking images is not the only thing it has.  It has shots and images that no one has ever seen before.  The above image that was released a while ago was the first released image from the Planet Earth footage.  In case you are not sure what that is.  That is a great white shark, launching itself out of the water to eat a sea lion along the coast of an Artic region.  It was shot in full HD at 50 times slower than normal speed because it is so fast.   They showed this scene in slo motion on Planet Earth last week, and it was amazing.  It looked fake.  Something never seen before, and if you thought jaws was scary before, now he flies out of the water to eat things.  The numbers of images like this and things I have never seen or even knew existed were too numerous to count in a single episode.  Fast motion bottom feeding shell fish.   Super close up's of the underside of eating sea stars and other alien looking creatures.  Shots that look close, but were shot from over 1.5kms away to not disturb the animals.  

Each show has a theme, the one the shark image is from was called Shallow Seas, and was just perfect.  Narrated by Sigourney Weaver the story and images take you to places people have never seen before.  If you have an HDTV, this is a 100% must watch, and a 90% must buy on DVD.   If you have a regular TV, this is still almost a 100% must watch.  It also most likely could be the reason you finally decide to get an HDTV.
