Walking With Dinosaurs

Dec 12, 2007

While you've missed your chance to have a real-live dinosaur encounter by about 65 million years, you can still get up close and personal with all of your fave "terrible lizards" at a Walking With Dinosaurs showt near you. Check it out!

The TV Show

Walking With Dinosaurs began as an award-winning six-part BBC TV series that, according to the Guinness Book of World Records, was the most expensive documentary series - minute for minute - ever made. The show was filmed like a nature documentary with "living" dinosaurs rather than interviews with experts. The series won three Emmy Awards, including Best Animated Program.

The Live Experience

The TV show was so popular that a live theatrical adaptation of the documentary series was created in Australia and began touring in 2007. The live show features 15 life-size mechanical dinosaurs, with the largest of them - the brachiosaurus - reaching 45 feet tall! Now that show has hit the road to North America! The super-realistic show is part art, part science, but it's all entertainment!

Show Review

If you’re tired of the same old museum field-trips and textbook [KWLINK ]fossil[/KWLINK] sketches, Walking with Dinosaurs is for you. Not since Jurassic Park have these “terrible lizards” been so alive, beautiful, and terrifying. There are a few clunky bits of narration and view-blocking set décor, but that’s just nitpicking when compared to the sheer technical brilliance of the life-size dinosaurs themselves. The great beasts not only look astoundingly lifelike, their movements are faultless too. Round up the whole family; this is one show you can’t afford to miss.

Why should a caterer or a florist be forced to serve for a wedding that they believe is wrong and immoral according to their religion? Doesn't that violate their freedoms?  No, we already decided this in the Civil Rights era, when the argument was about interracial marriage and segregation instead of gay marriage, and the same arguments were being used by the racists; why should a religious business owner with genuinely held convictions that he believes are religiously inspired be required to serve a black man? Surely, he should be able to deny service to those he believes wrong and immoral according to his religion? Wouldn't it violate his freedoms to force him to serve people of other races?   Or do you see the problem?  Thank you I have had to use that on so many people
