And I didn't even know that Zack Snyder made nature documentaries.

The fact that the narration includes the word "gents" leads me to believe that this is one of those things where they take a British documentary and redub it with an American voiceover for no damn reason.

Digging a little deeper, I find that it's a clip from "North America," a documentary series with just seven episodes. Hmm.

Apparently, Tom Selleck is narrating it (though the folksiness is suspicious). The footage looks really beautiful; it airs beginning tonight.

It's like MetaTalk in real life.

Wow, talk about blue balls.

Impress the lady, bow chicka wah wah and some asshole comes over and jumps on your back and starts punching you. I'll stick with being human then.

This is why the prairie is so awesome, all kinds of drama going on hidden in the tall grass. If you were fifty feet away from this battle you probably wouldn't know it was happening at all.

This. Only with T. Rexs instead.

I'll wait for the David Attenborough dub.

I'm going to tune in because I love good nature stuff like this, but in an ad we saw for it, they foley'd a redtail call into a scene to two bald eagles fighting, so, hmmmm. Hoping that was just a marketing department OOPS and somebody got yelled at.

BRB, dubbing sound effects from Joust into this.

It's times like this I wish I was still involved in the dating scene, because I would love, love to do my best prairie chicken impression in a bar to pick up some nice lady.

Hell if I could get one of my friends (a wingman, hah!) involved to play the part of an adversary, it would be even better.

Having watched the first couple of episodes, it could use less folksiness and anthropomorphizing, but the footage is sufficiently stunning to make up for it. Bald eagles playing catch with the head and neck of one of the geese they just ambushed, for example.
