The story, direction, characters, and writing/dialogue is akin to taking a tranquilizer shot to the neck, but everything else was so well done.
Interesting facts about the geography, history, and animal life in the Atlantic. This is mostly an animal documentary, but provides an appropriate amount of contextual information - how the atlantic was formed, a little bit on the use by humans, etc.
The first episode focuses on the Gulf Stream, which acts as a story line for that episode. I quite liked that it provided a natural flow to that episode.The documentary is not up there with the best of BBC, but definitely high quality, with very good camera work - particularly up-close to the animal action.I would have rated this documentary higher, but have rated it down by at least 1 star because of the sleepy narrator voice. He almost sounds disinterested, but at least he is good to understand and not cheesy.
