Dino heaven.

.

Not content to watch David Attenborough’s new series Prehistoric Planet on my phone I headed out to the barn and began the mind numbing, hair pulling process of setting up Apple TV in the man cave. It took a while to make the connection as our internet service is sketchy at best… but oh, was it worth it.

.

.

The colors, graphics and scenery in this show are stunning …

.

.

And I happily settled in for hours of uninterrupted viewing.

.

.

All Hail Sir David! The passion with which he narrates stirs my very soul. 96 years young and still finding wonder in the natural world. I love him.

.

.

If you’re a dinosaur fan? You really need to watch this show.

.

.

Yes, there are T Rex and Brontosaurs and Triceratops, but it’s the weird and wonderful little known dinos that will steal your heart.

.

.

The giant reptiles really come to life.

.

.

As does our Cretaceous world.

.

.

At times it feels like a sci fi movie….

.

.

And I was loving every minute of it.

.

.

I zipped through part one..

.

.

And was halfway through part two with a big smile on my face when it happened.

.

.

Our *#%”ing internet connection broke and no matter how hard I tried or what I did I couldn’t get it back.

Grrr…

😡

.

I’m in!

.

Let me just throw this out there… I love dinosaurs!

Always have, always will. While other little girls were playing with baby dolls and decorating Barbie’s stupid dream house, I was waging a life and death battle with my T Rex and Brontosaur. When other children wanted to go to Madison Square Garden to see the circus, I begged my parents to take me to the Museum of Natural History to see the Stegosaurus skeleton. In a perfect world I would have grown up to be a fossil hunter, endlessly scouring

the Black Hills for remnants of the Cretaceous. The best I can do now? Live vicariously through documentaries my husband thinks are dry as toast. Until this one –

.

.

Tomorrow on Apple TV, the dinosaur documentary to end all dinosaur documentaries will begin. Hosted by David Attenborough…. All Hail Sir David! …it’s the dino version of Planet Earth and I can’t wait.

Now that’s tv worth watching!
