Remember Blue Planet, Oceans and Life? Like those movies, Human Planet is an eight-part epic documentary that takes a look at some of the most fascinating creatures in the world: us!!!

People Pleaser

WOW! This set of Blu-Rays/DVDs is incredible! Human Planet takes you around the world to meet all sorts of interesting people who do all sorts of incredible things, like hunt goose barnacles in Spain, herd camels in the Gobi Desert, mine sulphur from a volcano in Java and celebrate the falling rain in Africa!

Making Movies

Not only are the 80 stories that are told in this set amazing, the lengths that the producers went to make each episode will leave you awe-struck. Special featurettes attached to each show explain the harsh, sometimes even life-threatening conditions that were encountered behind the scenes – for example, filming in the Arctic, with shifting ice floes underfoot, was incredibly dangerous.

("wow.. Maybe I can help you some time." PunMaster offered) he landed on a rock below, and Paperjam was about twenty ahead of him. "Great Job! Now let's go!"

"Oh. Um, OK..." I closed my eyes, and jumped. I hoped that I'd land on something. ​(("Um, I did. It's today." Paps chuckled. "You have no idea how many people I had to enlist..."))

Error didn't answer, he just glanced up giving him a sort of look like 'are you really that clueless?' then went back to his game. Paperjam was visible on a floating rock down below, and he started jumping from rock to rock,. "come on!"  (PunMaster nodded. "If it's tiring, haven't you ever asked to get a break, have someone else do it for you for at least a day?")

"Kid! What the heck are you doing? And what am I supposed to do?" I said this last part to PJ's dad, who barely took notice of me, glued to his phone's screen. ​(("I've been delivering messages in-between cities of the Underground for my brother. It gets really tiring sometimes, but Iron says I've been helping a lot, so I do my best!" He sighed.))

Paperjam grinned. "Come on!" Paperjam grabbed Iron's hand, then ran along the path, until they came to an edge a little way away from where error had been... Only Error was there, sitting on the ground this time, still on his phone. Paperjam let go of Iron's hand, and looked out over the edge, waiting... then he suddenly jumped off the edge, plummeting. Error seemed to have little to no concern about what was occuring.  ("Hmm.. recently? I've been drawing, writing stories, roleplaying.. it's fun." PunMaster shrugged. "You?" )
