Life DVD Set Review

Life on planet Earth is absolutely amazing. In the Life DVD Set, Oprah Winfrey narrates the amazing stories of some of the countless living creatures that call our planet home.


This Thing Called Life

Each of the four DVDs in this boxed set includes episodes packed with spectacular images and tons of information that let you explore the existence of the varieties of life in over 200 different species spread over seven continents. The project took over three years to film and used 70 camera crews in 3,000 hours of shooting time. The footage is breathtaking. Life shows you plants, birds, reptiles, amphibians, fish and mammals up close.


Tough Times

Through the DVDs, you learn that life on Earth is a challenge. The struggle to survive exists among all creatures. Some of the scenes, especially between the hunter and the hunted, might be a bit too much to take. But the scenes that show how brave and adaptive many creatures are in their refusal to give up more than make up for it.


Amazing Moments

One episode shows how the tiny strawberry dart frog, no bigger than a fingernail, fights for survival by carrying each of her tadpoles from the rainforest floor to a safer location in the treetops. Another episode follows three cheetah brothers who have learned to hunt as a pack, which is unusual because cheetahs usually hunt alone.


One of the best scenes captures Capuchin Monkeys that have learned how to collect and dry palm nuts and then take them to a special rock where they pound them open, using a second stone as a tool. The baby monkeys learn how to open the nuts by watching their parents – it takes almost eight years for the babies to learn how to do it properly!


Basically, you’ll learn tons about life and learn to appreciate how amazing it really is to survive in this world when you watch these DVDs. Each disc includes 11 episodes, plus special bonus features that show you how Life was made. The last DVD includes deleted scenes.

You try to turn on the lamp, but the power is out. You explore the house.Several of the doors are locked, and there seem to be no beds, couches, or any other furniture to sit on. At last you come to a room that is not locked. You open the door and see something you did not expect.The room is bare save for three chairs. One has knives embedded in it, one is an electric chair, and the other one is swarmed with spiders. You are tired after searching for a place to stay and desire to sit and rest. Which chair do you choose? The electric chair cuz it won't kill you unless you flip a switch lol
