I liked the show. I wasn't bothered too much by the level of anthropomorphism, certainly kept my little cousin from being scared since this was his first dinosaur show,it was really nice when it wasn't over the top cartoony, especially with these guys, the Allosaurus (especially with the beginning of the part), and the Tyrannosaurus parts I wish they could have done more with. I still think these little guys have to be my favorites, they're so adorable. I just want to cuddle the baby. :3
I didn't. But I liked it. Nobody tried to persuade the public of anthropomorphic dinosaur behavior. It was just an artistic tool of the creators. Sweet and funny way instead of boring narration. And it's strange for me that there are so many people who didn't understand it.
I understand where you're coming from and don't get me wrong I did enjoy the episodes. Have you seen Planet Dinosaur by the BBC? 6 superbly crafted episodes, excellent CGI and all based on latest discoveries. I guess you're in the U.S.? It should be available on DVD. It's just Discovery makes these type of programs so sensationalist.
I've seen Planet Dinosaur. Good program and a lot of interesting scientific content but CGI was far from perfect (fine but too "computer", plus a lot of anatomical mistakes). To be honest that was common TV dinosaur show. There are dozens of such programs and they have almost identical format. Boring... Creators of DR just chose another way and another style. And it's good because now we have DIFFERENT movies. And I'm not in US. I from Russia.
I'll agree on some of the CGI in Planet Dinosaur, but it only dramatised what was seen or reasonably inferred by fossil evidence (which was not the case with Walking With Dinosaurs). DR and PD are 2 different types of programs, and unfortunately for me PD almost came across as a children's program with it's sensationalism and storytelling
