Lol, I'm watching it on the Discovery Channel. Great series. Right now
they're showing whale sharks. That would be incredible to dive
with them.

Yeah... I watched all the episodes on my 50" plasma in 1080i. It was an amazing series.

There was also a special on INHD or some other HD channel that was in 1080i, and was about Raja Ampat. It made me REALLY want to go there. Amazing sealife/variety.

<DIV>you should head to Utila in March, odds are pretty good you'll find them! We had luck twice when we were there, it's an amazing experience to be in the water with them...</DIV>

My DVR recorded the whole series, everytime I sit down to watch one, I tone out everyone and someone usually gets mad because I'm ignoring them!

Be sure and watch the little "making-of" segments that they have.They went through some crazy stuff to get those videos. It'll make you appreciate them even more because they make it look like a day at the zoo where the animals don't mind humans.

I bought the DVD's, and took them to school to show my 5th grade science classes...on the projection screen. They were so mesmerized it was scary! It was a quiet final week of school!!!

Yeah I think I'm gonna break down and buy the hddvd or bluray set. My 3 year old liked watching it with me so I think it would be worth it.

Yeah, I just checked it's 11 50min parts. It comes on five DVDs or four HD/Bluray discs. Amazon has a good price on them right now, $54 for the DVDs reg $80 or $67 for the Hi Def versions if you have the HDDVD or Bluray player reg $100.
