The enthusiasm of Shubin is palpable. The graphics and animations are amazing. Best of all the explanations of the evolutionary morphology of hands, ears, skin, and even brain structure is crystal-clear.

This is not a video for anyone who has already decided that evolution is some evil hoax that is being told to us. It is all about the science of evolution and how it can explain the development of the human being. Fascinating.

Well-produced, good graphics, seems like sound science, and an engaged and enthusiastic presenter - this is a very good example of what a documentary should be!

Interesting material presented in an available fashion.

Elucidates complex ideas and discoveries using clarifying visuals,.. and conveys the excitement of the scientific explorers,.. without talking down to us.

I don't know what exactly is wrong with this series - except I found it to be not very informative. It is beautifully done, but seemed - shallow? And a word of warning - not for the squeamish.

Dr. Shubin is very well spoken. Topics covered were very interesting and educational. Production quality was great.

PBS has done it again very well done documentary series. This movie was interesting, informative, and worse seeing!! I recommend this movie for all to see. Well worth the price of admission to any theater.

One of the more interesting documentaries about our ancestors in the animal world. One of the more interesting facts is that ALL animals share our anatomy regarding our arm bones. 1 in the upper arms, 2 in our lower arm, and many small bones at the end of our lower arm. The film traces this unique part of animal anatomy back to the front fin of a fish-like animal that lived 375 million years ago.

It talks about evolution and why we are the way we are through evolution. It was a fun and informative program. Can you imagine spending your summerS in the Arctics digging into rocks and sleeping in tents with a bunch of middle aged men? Next in the pbs series is "Your Inner Reptile" etc.
