It just got added to Netflix and I'm thriving. 4 minutes in and David Attenborough is already changing my entire worldview by pronouncing sloth with /əʊ/ instead of /ɑ/ (I think that's what it is, I don't know very much about the IPA) and that blew my mind because I never realized the etymological origin of "sloth" is basically just "slow"-th. Follow this space for more pointless revelations about sloths and the International Phonetic Alphabet.

Without context, my thoughts on episode one of Planet Earth II read like abstract poetry:

 

THIS SLOTHG ISJ !!! SWIMMING!! MICHAEL PHELPS WHO

YOU GUYS IT.S.....THT ETHERES KOMODO DRAGONS YAAAAAAA

I can assure you, i’m not going to like. cuddle a Komodo dragon or something but, love them boys

id watch a soap opera about komodo dragons

This is almost as intense as Bake Off

im Living for the sound effects that play when the lemurs jump from branch to branch

take me down to Fernandina island where the marine iguanas number over 7,000 and the crabs provide a welcome exfoliation service

honestly? i’m the baby iguana staring out from the sand at the iguana who got caught by the snakes

remember when Bibliography Cumulonimbus couldnt say penguins? that was such a cool thing. “pengwings”

this attractive bird’s gf isn’t here!!! nooo!!!

She’s here!!!!!!!!!!!! It’s her!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

tiny crab utopia

the crab playing with the camera!!! the crab playing with the camera!!! the crab playing with the camera!!!

When I would go to my specialist for asthma and stuff, there would always be either Planet Earth or BBC Earth playing on the TVs in the waiting room. It was amazing. 

I would definitely but a book of your thoughts

 

IT’S NOT RELATED TO PLANET EARTH BUT DID I HEAR BAKE OFF YES

@Spring:

 

YES I LOVE BAKE OFF! I really need to watch the season I haven't seen. It's simultaneously so intense and so peaceful and ugh I just love it.

I watched last years season this year, because it airs late on CBC, and I have yet to watch the semi-finals and the finals of Great Canadian Bake Off, because I got busy with Christmas.

 

I know, it seems so peaceful, but I actually started screaming at one point

@Marx: I very much recommend it to crab-lovers, but be warned, in the episode I've seen there are some ants who behave Very Unpleasantly toward the poor crabs

@Eureka: The bulk of this thread has to do with the Great British Bake Off despite the fact that it's about Planet Earth II, which is how most of my conversations end up.

"The Biggest Flex Anyone Will Ever Have Is Dying"

 

SIGNATURE WORK AHEAD

I'm incapable of brevity and I love mountains, that's right, it's time for Episode Two: Mountains

 

Theres a !! ca t !!! what’s more it is my absolute favourite cat, the snow leopard!! them paws! that floofin’ tail! spots! Soft !
the part where the snow leopard is yelling into the mountains? that’s me
you know when you’re playing skyrim, and the horses just stand on mountains, defying gravity like they think they’re elphaba. now i’m not saying ibexes were developed by bethesda, but,
Baby ibexes have a raw, unnatural power no other being will ever possess
BIRDCAM ™
I love the “zyoom” sound effect. At least I think it’s a sound effect. I’m going to pretend it’s not.
I’m aware they’re in very different parts of the world but what if that fox is that other fox. What if.
The golden eagle is a jock with Lunchables, the crows are the weird art kids who forgot their lunch at home. The bigger golden eagle is the cooler jock who brought a better kind of Lunchables. I’ve never been to public school so please add on to my High School Cafeteria Planet Earth II AU
She’s blinking sideways? More power to her
David Attenborough says the word “avalanche” the most interesting way I’ve ever heard someone say the word “avalanche.” Ahvalohnsh
T H E Y E M E R G E
its them!! its the grizzly bears!!
This makes me remember a hot take of mine and that hot take is this: Seekers > Warriors, Survivors
WATERFALLS. WATERFAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAALLS
there’s a BEE!
Pretty goat! Prr eet ytt y pretty goat! Gorgeous!
hongry bears. give em a snack
marmots unnerve me deeply, much like the baby ibexes they have this raw, eldritch power i can’t explain or even attempt to fathom. it’s a different sort than the ibexes’ power, but it’s there.
I love bears so much you guys...there’s only three days until Paddington 2 is released in American cinemas you guys........just something to think about.....
BEAR DANCING! YOU GO BABY! I LOVE YOU! ROCK IT!
The score is on-point
it’s another one of my favourite kinds of cats! hes so handsome and intelligent. i love him.
The bobcat leaping so dramatically and faceplanting and the camera just lingering???? Comedy gold??
This is the prettiest place I’ve ever seen in my life, I love the world, I love birds, I love cats, I love this cool otter, I love waterfalls, I love this cute coyote fisherman who’s doing his best, I love my bobcat friend shaking his feet off, I love this giant deer thing, I love so much about so many things
The bobcat zyooming up the tree to eat the squirrel is my 2018 mood
:0 Mount Kenya is so beautiful?? And climate, biomes, weather, it’s all so interesting??
GLITTER! THERE IS GLITTER! I REPEAT, THERE IS GLITTER!
What is this cursed Andean animal? What is this? What am I looking at?
(Note: this particular animal was written about on Tui Sutherland’s blog so if it’s in any of the upcoming Wings of Fire books. Well. That’s something to think about I guess)
I feel so bad for the flamingos but the music is so hijinksy
You all may know this about me, because I’ve mentioned it a lot, but I am deeply afraid of rabbits and kangaroos. So viscachas are my RABBIT-KANGAROO NIGHTMARE ANIMAL COME TO LIFE
These flamingos and their swanky fashion walk (er, scientifically, “courtship dance”) makes me wish I had a squad. A wingman, if you will
All right, seeing as we’re moving straight on to the global warming bit, I take it we’re not going to learn anything about viscachas and this makes me fear them all the more. David Attenborough, please tell me what I have to do to keep them away,
Anywho I love the part of Planet Earth II where they say “hey, uhh, the world’s being destroyed so like. please do something.” I endorse this message
im crying now..no....not the snow leopard...why is the world like this aduheifhpewjpqj
its the gals :) theyre soft and i would do anything for them :)
Look ok I really like snow leopards, I love them, I want to know more about them, but can I please stop seeing the shots of...you know. You know what I’m talking about.
momther please dont leave ur child to chase after h0t snow leopard dudes
Great! Now they’re on their first date and there’s more shows I don’t want to see!
MOMTHER PLEASE GET YOUR BABY SAFE,,
BABY PLAESE.... RUN.......!!!
This is even more intense than the Komodo dragon’s weird date/fight! I hate this!
She Is Hurt. Why Would You Do This To Me @ Planet Earth II
:(((((((( where is she.
:)))))))) she’s here!!!!!!!!!!!!
im emo now bc of snow leopard mom and snow leopard baby
NEXT TIME IS JUNGLES YALL! I have lots to say about jungles so G E T R E A D Y

this makes me want to try to smoosh in episode two tonight

maybe I will

although I'm lowkey terrified because apparently there are some Rated R Activities™ involving snow leopards and love if I interpreted that right

 

 

adding on to the beauty that is the Planet Earth II High School AU:

(this is all from episode one)

- the fairy tern mom is the popular, nice, generally perfect senior who stars in the school musical with her beautiful soprano voice

- the komodo dragons are jocks 900%

- the smol baby iguanas are freshmen on their first day and the snakes are ruthless seniors and mean teachers

- the albatross couple is that ONE ADORABLE COUPLE EVERY SCHOOL HAS where they're in different grades so eventually one goes to college before the other one and they have to try to maintain a long distance relationship
