Our Planet: Season 1 | Ratings & Reviews

"On every scale, it is amazing. You can only boggle at the endless precision of the natural world, and of the people who devote themselves to capturing its wonders."

The GuardianThe Guardian

"Our Planet is a desperate plea for conservation wrapped up in stunning camerawork and scope; it does retread some familiar nature documentary ground, but with fresh clarity and urgency."


"For the most part, "Our Planet" is so frank about just how badly humans have screwed over the Earth that it's genuinely startling. No matter how huge the crisis, it's rare to see it laid out in such unsparing terms."


"The result is a painfully beautiful eight-hour experience, bewitching in its loveliness and diversity even as it agitates, relentlessly, for human action against climate change."

Vanity FairVanity Fair

"The surprise of the documentary is that when climate change and mankind's role in it is brought up, it's not consistently negative. With each episode made up of vignettes, some of them wind up with a happier-than-expected conclusion"

Slash FilmSlash Film

"The camera-work and the colours are exquisite. A lone elephant and zebra walk across an African salt pan, looking like works of art. A flock of flamingos settle on the salt flats after the rains, their chicks knobbly-kneed."

The TimesThe Times

"The new series is putting all its energy into making an impact, sacrificing entertainment value for a shot at changing a few minds."


"David Attenborough's Netflix series offers a strange waltz between wonder and melancholy. The show thrills us with the marvels of nature, and then saddens us that we are rapidly wiping them out."
