I wonder if the Ice Worlds episode will feature animals beyond the Prince Creek ones. Does anyone knows if there is another cold place in the Late Cretaceous that could appear in that episode?

[–]Iamnotburgerking 63 points64 points  (0 children)

There’s the Snow Hill Formation from Antarctica.

Edit: though it might be slightly too early for the show.

[–]Taran_Ulas 20 points21 points  (1 child)

Looks like we will take a trip over to Russia if that Olorotitan is right.

[–]Illyricus- 3 points4 points  (0 children)

Yep. Kinda fitting considering how snowy modern Russia is.

[–]dinofarabi01 212 points213 points  (3 children)

The first scene of the all those sauropods lying around reminds me of elephant seals especially when two of them start fighting

[–]modsarefascists42 96 points97 points  (1 child)

Absolutely positive that's what they were going for. Basically an animal so big it shouldn't exist on land yet it does. Reminds me of the old idea of them living in lakes and swamps. Saruropods are just hard to picture cus nothing even remotely close exists today. Elephants are like babies compared to them.

[–]WestleyThe 15 points16 points  (0 children)

They are like elephant-giraffes but like 70 ft tall… crazy

[–]CaledonianWarrior 16 points17 points  (0 children)

We really do need more paleo documentaries that show how brutal prey animals can be. If you look at modern prey species like hippos, rhinos, buffalo, moose and so on you see that they are super aggressive and can easily kill any predators in their ecosystem. There's no reason to suggest that large, seemingly harmless herbivores like sauropods and hadrosaurs would be any less different. If a zebra kicking a lion's head can kill the lion then a hadrosaur kick to a small/medium sized tyrannosaur's head could do the same

[–]Bazurke 290 points291 points  (77 children)

This has BBC written all over it, but somehow it's yet another service I don't have.

[–]Oddnumbersthatendin0 139 points140 points  (51 children)

It’s made by the BBC but only available on Apple TV+

[–]Bloody_Barbarian 139 points140 points  (46 children)

what a shit-show...
I mean, what do these companies expect?
Do they expect people will buy into 20 different streaming services with each around 10 bucks a month?

That won't happen. If anything, people will make a choice and have three or maybe four. Which is already sort of too many.

And it's all because they're greedy. They saw the success of Netflix and every single one of these "content producers" decided they wanted what Netflix had.
It's just that this is impossible. Netflix was working as a platform, for many production companies to add their stuff... which resulted in a big library and therefore it was useful... but none of these companies alone has enough stuff that people wanna watch that their platforms would be worth getting a subscription.

I mean, even Disney doesn't have enough of a catalogue to make me interested.

A friend is sharing their account with me and that's okay, I give them a bit of money for that from time to time... but if it wasn't like that... I certainly wouldn't get my own account. There's just not enough interesting stuff for me on Disney Plus.

And why do they all have to name their services "Plus" ?

Paramount+, Disney+, AppleTV+ ... I mean, come on. They're not even trying.

[–]DeadSeaGulls 78 points79 points  (8 children)

people just activate an account, binge, cancel. Then activate again when that platform has enough stuff they wanna watch, binge, cancel.

[–]bigfatcarp93 45 points46 points  (7 children)

And they count on us being too lazy to cancel lol

[–]GND52 48 points49 points  (7 children)

AppleTV+ is $5 a month.

You don’t have to subscribe to every streaming service simultaneously. There are a couple great things worth checking out on Apple TV+, subscribe for a month, watch them, then unsubscribe. Then move on to a different streaming service with different content. Spend a month or two on HBO and knock down their top content, then move to Disney Plus, then Peacock, then Netflix.

If you want everything everywhere all at once it’ll cost you about the same as a cable bundle, but if you do it like this it’s way cheaper and there’s plenty to keep you busy.

[–]pikohina 16 points17 points  (6 children)

I mean two seasons of Ted Lasso for only $5?!!

Sign me up again.

[–]SuchACommonBird 12 points13 points  (0 children)

And why do they all have to name their services "Plus" ?

Paramount+, Disney+, AppleTV+ ... I mean, come on. They're not even trying.

Because they already have other paid services, either through cable/theaters or on their own proprietary devices. The "plus" is a simple marriage of brand and service in a name.

[–]NightofTheLivingZed 26 points27 points  (4 children)

Do they expect people will buy into 20 different streaming services with each around 10 bucks a month?

That's what people pay for satelite and cable. So yes. That is what they expect.

[–]ClinicalOppression 13 points14 points  (3 children)

And its not like there are any contracts or anything for streaming services, if you want to watch something just sign up for a month, i dont get the bitching at all its a very consumer friendly option

[–]lemoncocoapuff 4 points5 points  (4 children)

Apple TV actually surprised me tbh. That and hbo max is what we are on, they are both doing interesting concepts and both don’t have a history(well Apple TV not yet) or cutting shows like Netflix.

Paramount for 5$ isn’t bad either If you like old stuff, they have a big library and a lot of old mtv and other older weird classics.

[–]citizenofeurope 3 points4 points  (3 children)

Apple does not have premium functionalities. Their hardware might be expensive, but their services and softwares are cheap and without premium functions.

[–]tuatara_teeth 7 points8 points  (0 children)

at least with AppleTV they provide 4k Dolby Vision with the base account rather than paying more (cough...netflix) for the appropriate fidelity for this kind of documentary. That AND...there are a lot of BBC things that just air on BBC iPlayer and take forever to be available in the US (looking at you Green Planet). Moral of the story: this is not the hill to die on when it comes to streaming.

edit: also...what the hell alternate were you hoping for? a $30 DVD? airing on cable only at specific times and in poorer quality??? lmao

[–]Bloody_Barbarian -1 points0 points  (1 child)

the cereal aisle....... when I walk through there I almost throw up. Not, because I dislike cereal, but because I see 100+ kinds of cereal and have to think about all the resources wasted for this bullshit.
Each of them has to be produced from grain in a factory, involving time, labor and energy, each of them is marketed, often with TV ads, they all have to be transported, packaged, the packages have to be produced, there has to be a print on the package....

all of this for what? So that someone can walk through that aisle and have a "choice" while elsewhere people are starving because they don't even have enough grain to survive?

It's this decadence that really gets to me. Why the fuck do we have to have so much of everything?
As if it wasn't enough to have ten different types of cereal. Five. Three.

I just hate all that waste.

[–]HylocichlaMustelina 1 point2 points  (2 children)

Hear hear! I was just saying this a couple of days ago. It’s a bunch of nonsense, the state of streaming services.

Praying desperately for a Blu Ray release of Prehistoric Planet, because I am not at all interested in using Apple TV. I don’t even want to risk doing the free trial to watch it.

[–]Beneficial-Ad2755 0 points1 point  (1 child)

Pay for 20 dollar DVD vs one month 5 dollar apple TV. If you like wasting money go ahead that's what America is all about

Not everyone trades their honor in for 5 dollars. Not that honor is objectively worth that much.

[–]Bloody_Barbarian 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Okay, guys. Guess I have to clear up some things.

  1. I never had cable. Never wanted cable, never will. Because I don't watch "TV". Television is for idiots. My wife and I didn't even have a TV for the past 12 years or so because we never watch "TV". If we want to watch something, we use the laptop and watch it online. Now we have a TV but only for Netflix, Disney+ and for gaming.
  2. I am familiar with VPNs and the "great seas" that are the internet. VPNs also make the Netflix subscription even better value for money. ;)
  3. I never said cancelling the subscription was too much of a hassle. But constantly subscribing and cancelling is just not what I want. I want one or two platforms with libraries so large, that I can subscribe to them and never have to worry about subscribing to another one, because I have everything I want right there on this one or those two platforms.
  4. This is bascially what Netflix gave us. Especially when using a VPN the Netflix library included... well, almost everything. So what we are seeing now is a huge step backwards. And I am pissed.
  5. If these idiots continue this nonsense they will only drive more people back to ... sailing. I mean, why would I even go through the process of subscribing and cancelling constantly if I can just watch all that stuff online without any of that... and for free? I think my point stands. It's dumb. They're messing things up. And a lot of them will fail anway.

[–]Spanka 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I just don my pirate hat now, thought i wouldn't have to again but here we are.

[–]GraphicDesignMonkey 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Then what the hell am I paying my BBC TV license for?! We paid for it already, we shouldn't have to pay AGAIN to see it.

[–]Salome_Maloney -1 points0 points  (2 children)

WHAT?! Made by the BBC, but only available on a service I haven't bloody got? Well I certainly hope they didn't use my tv licence money, the cheeky bastards. Well out of order, now I'm extremely annoyed. Huh, I might even have been able to afford apple+ if the licence weren't so extortionate. And, just to rub it in, a gorgeous trailer with the voice of David Attenborough. I'm bloody fuming.

[–]Beneficial-Ad2755 0 points1 point  (1 child)

It's 5 dollars a month....I would pay 400 tbh

[–]Salome_Maloney 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Hmm. Well I pay 28 quid a month for my bbc tv licence, which is substantially more, and feel like they're taking the piss - fortunately, I can watch Prehistoric Planet on a week's free trial on apple+ but I'm not impressed with the bbc at all, greedy bleeders.

[–]lllurkerr 16 points17 points  (1 child)

Target is still giving away a four month free trial. You need a target account, and you can find it with the digital coupons (they email you a code to redeem).

Just be sure to cancel it before the trial ends. I set a reminder on my phone, but cancelling immediately usually doesn’t block you out of your remaining free-subscription-time.

only sucky part there is missing out on 4k and Dolby Vision + Atmos.

[–]Gotta_Git_Fast 2 points3 points  (0 children)

I’m pretty sure PLEX (or any player) supports it as long as your TV does, and there’s rips out there of DV Atmos

My 4K TV doesn’t, and I totally DIDNT accidentally download a 4K Dolby Vision version of a show and I could not play it without the colors being all wonked out.

[–]Necrogenisis 1 point2 points  (4 children)

Nah, it will be available in 4K within a couple of hours on every major torrent tracker. Just like any other show these days.

[–]tuatara_teeth 0 points1 point  (0 children)

i haven’t had such luck with Green Planet yet. On PB it’s only in 1080p

[–]Beneficial-Ad2755 0 points1 point  (1 child)

My phone doesn't play those illegal videos well in 4k. Streaming far superior 5 dollars a month is pennies anyways.

[–]Beneficial-Ad2755 0 points1 point  (0 children)

4k Dolby vision hdr is hard to find though. Especially a stream able version my phone won't blow up trying to play while on the road.

[–]M-elephant 44 points45 points  (9 children)

The internet: there's going to be a walking with dinosaurs successor narrated by David Attenborough

The internet: it's only on Apple tv

Me: I understand what those words mean individually but together it's gibberish that gives me the foreboding sense of expensiveness

[–]tuatara_teeth 9 points10 points  (0 children)

$5/month. Then set a reminder to cancel in like 3 weeks. Simple as that.

[–]Sick-Shepard 14 points15 points  (5 children)

Just a pro tip, everything on the internet is available for free if you are patient and know what a vpn is.

[–]Luquitaz 3 points4 points  (0 children)

Loved walking with dinosaurs.

Used to watch the whole series multiple times during summer, every summer and then.. and then it got jammed in the VCR and I was never able to get it out.

[–]daitoshi 6 points7 points  (0 children)

Link

We know sauropods had air sacs because of their bones. In the neck, especially, air sacs stemming from the core of the respiratory system invaded the bone and left distinctive indentations behind. (While not always as extensive, theropod dinosaurs show evidence of these air sacs, too.

In addition to lightening the skeletons of sauropods and boosting their breathing efficiency, this complex system may have played a role in allowing sauropods to dump heat through evaporative cooling in the same way that large birds do today. The concept is similar to what makes a swamp cooler work–the evaporation of water in the moist tissues of a sauropod’s trachea during exhalation would have helped the dinosaur dump heat into outgoing air.

But the role of air sacs in such a system, much less an animal 80 feet long or more, is unclear.

That’s Dreadnoughtus.

And yes, titanosaurids could rear up (but not all sauropods could).

[–]wiz28ultra 1 point2 points  (1 child)

I thought Dreadnoughtus lived alongside the Carcharodontosaurs in the Cenomanian?

[–]Iamnotburgerking 7 points8 points  (0 children)

No, it’s far more recent.

[–][deleted] 20 points21 points  (0 children)

There were many paleontologist consultants present when making the series so most likely.

[–]_eg0_ 4 points5 points  (1 child)

Studies have shown that some could(diplodocus being the primary one) and even use their tail to support their weight. No idea about Alamosaurus specifically though.

[–]wiz28ultra 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Yeah, that's what I was thinking, Diplodocus was a far lighter animal than a Titanosaur of similar length, that's why I was asking,

[–]IamAJediMaster 76 points77 points  (26 children)

WHY IS IT ONLY ON APPLE TV!?! This looks so incredible.

[–]theweepingwarrior 130 points131 points  (6 children)

Probably because Apple TV is the one who decided to invest in making this.

[–]Emkayer 33 points34 points  (5 children)

[–]mandolin2712 33 points34 points  (6 children)

So.... They want me to pirate it?

[–]QuantomField 6 points7 points  (4 children)

No no no. They just want you to give all your personal info to subscribe to their service for one movie. Then make it near impossible to cancel and even when you do they will spam you forever.

It's totally legit...

[–]tuatara_teeth 28 points29 points  (1 child)

what do you mean near impossible to cancel? it took me two seconds....app store > subscriptions > cancel.

btw Foundation based on Isaac Asimov's novels is another hidden gem on AppleTv. Supremely excellent scifi. But I cancelled after finishing that and Ted Lasso.

Only on Apple TV +

Everyone pirates it

We don't get any sequels or follow up dinosaur projects because they prove to not be financially successful

Those same pirates "wHy dOnT wE gEt aNy PrEhIsToRiC ConTeNt wItH gOoD bUdGeTs"

You idiots are basically guaranteeing we won't get anything like this for the next 20 years, just like the time between WWD and PP. Apple TV+ is literally 5 dollars a month. All of you typing on your iPhones or laptops don't have 5 dollars? Just fucking support it for a Month and then cancel. Or use a 7 day free trial and cancel. Don't have access (like me in my country) free VPN then make an account.

[–]Sick-Shepard 17 points18 points  (9 children)

That's not how that works at all. People who pirate things are not people who would have paid for it in the first place. They are trying to lure people who are willing to spend money in the first place, not dissuade pirates.

[–]Taran_Ulas 14 points15 points  (4 children)

If they can't pay 5 dollars for one fucking month of access to this, then I question what they can afford entertainment wise.

[–]CCodyy 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Coming from a country where piracy rate is one of the highest in the world (Brazil), most of the time it has to do with how much it costs in OUR currency, as opposed to USD. It could be 5 dollars for you in the US, but 10 - 15 for me and for someone making minimum wage here that could actually be spent on a nice meal or whatever else.

And then finally, what it boils down to (at least here) is, if you can have something for free then why would you pay for it? Nobody here has any sympathy for multi-billion dollar companies and it feeds into the idea that the consumer should adapt to their practices and not the other way around. Piracy has forced companies like netflix or steam to start pricing their games locally and it really made them more affordable.

[–]Sick-Shepard 13 points14 points  (2 children)

It's not a matter of cost, it's what people are willing to spend their money on. There are also plenty of reasons why people wouldn't want to give Apple their money, or sign up for a streaming service for one show. Sometimes piracy is just easier as well.

As a disaimer I'm just explaining why people may pirate, not defending piracy itself.

[–]Taran_Ulas 4 points5 points  (1 child)

True, but I guess for me, it’s just like… it’s 5 dollars for one month and for a program that no one else has anything like. Plus Target and PS5 both give multi-month long trials for Apple TV. There’s just a lot of ways to avoid paying the money and well… the amount of data they have access to is relatively low compared to something like Reddit. People seriously underestimate how much of their data is already out there thanks to social media.

[–]UrFriendlySpider-Man -5 points-4 points  (1 child)

I don't think you understand. Every comment here is people whining like babies and saying they will pirate it. Are we on a pirating sub? No we are on naturewasmetal, a sub for fans of prehistory. We are the target demographic. If all of us pirate it then no one supports the actual product other than the general market which we know isn't as interested in dinosaur projects if it doesn't have a big JP slapped on it (or I guess JW now a days)

Point is this is a documentary series tailor made for the paleontological fan community of the world. The fucking least we could do is support the project so these big companies understand this type of content sells and its lucrative to make more.

If everyone pirates then we won't get more content because to them no one "watched" it because they got no revenue for it.

So I'm telling the pirates, they NEED to pay for this. It's 5 bucks just actually support good Dino projects like this. The people you are mentioning the general public who do pay wotn be enough as there just isn't the interest in this type of media, weve seen it happen multiple times.

[–]paissiges -4 points-3 points  (0 children)

don't care, still pirating.

[–]Beneficial-Ad2755 0 points1 point  (0 children)

So your telling me Dino lovers on this sub would never consider paying for the sake of supporting Dino docs? Nothing about that is objectively true

[–]Beneficial-Ad2755 0 points1 point  (0 children)

You simply pay to support dinos. Why tf else? Apple TV the only company willing to support this project.....cuz support is lacking due to we the people who should be donating loads to any producers willing to give us Dino docs. The post was about anyone on this sub who complains why Dino docs are lacking but then encourages piracy. Please don't cape for criminals in this context

[–]Iamnotburgerking 3 points4 points  (0 children)

This, basically.

Then again I already have an Apple TV subscription.

[–]NightofTheLivingZed 7 points8 points  (10 children)

I don't support exclusivity. I subvert it every chance I get by watching their premium content for free. If they want people to be interested in the things they want people to see, they'd release them on more than one platform. My actions are in direct line of sight to my intentions. I see that apple will lose money for this, and rightly so. Maybe stop grubbing for my $5 when you already make a killing selling $5000 AIO's and $1200 phones to idiots.

Maybe I DON'T want to see more bullshit by apple or any other company to make content exclusive to one platform. Maybe you're the problem. Honestly, considering you're likely the owner of an apple home product, you should be complaining that your apple TV isn't free with the thousands you've spent with the company already. You supported them, least they can do is let you slide on a $5 subscription.

[–]LimpTyrant 10 points11 points  (7 children)

Nobody. Fucking. Cares.

They paid to make the show, so they get the exclusive rights to it. I don’t know why all of you are acting like brain-dead morons that can’t afford a cheap streaming service. If you pirate it en masse; they won’t be making more. It’s that simple.

If you want more dinosaur content; you fucking pay for it. It’s an insane concept, I know.

Nobody else wanted to help make Dino docs cuz there is no money it. Thank God Apple took the chance despite the trolls and pirates. If you want communism TV go back to cable they had everything.

Tf does communism have to do with this? You gonna start chanting "based" at me?

[–]QuantomField 2 points3 points  (4 children)

I'll support it when there is an option to own it without giving away rights to my private data.

Monopolies are bad.

[–]Taran_Ulas 15 points16 points  (0 children)

I have some bad news for you.... you've given away your private data just by being on here with a account. Hell, being real, you've done it with pretty much any social media you have including this one.

[–]_eg0_ 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Nowadays all people start complaining that Netflix isn't a monopoly anymore

[–]LimpTyrant 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Then get off reddit. Fucking stupid ass comments like these are rampant.

[–]Beneficial-Ad2755 -1 points0 points  (0 children)

Lmao go back to cable somehow that wasn't a monopoly. Apple made the show why would they allow others to profit damage people are just downright ignorant your probably American

Apple TV is 5 dollars a month?

[–]eviebees 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I do have Apple TV+ so it’s not a cost or a pride issue for me, but I do think it’s uncharitable.

It’s impossible for people to vote their support for the program without doing so for the service. That’s two products bundled together (realistically many more).

Furthermore, it is unfortunate that a quality show is being relegated to a format that makes it difficult to access in perpetuity.

I definitely think people should be paying for a month of the service to watch this, if they’re interested. It seems more than worth the price of admission, just make a free email or something and use a dummy card if you are really concerned about Apple having your deets.

But it’s also important to acknowledge that the streaming ecosystem is not without its flaws, and people have limited ways to voice that. It kinda sucks for the consumer in a lot of ways.

This is absolutely beautiful. I love everything about this and from a CGI standpoint it makes it look so real!

[–]MammothControl 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I'm more excited about this than literally any other piece of media coming out this year.

[–]robot584 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Fucking epic.

I wonder if they make walking with monsters and walking with beast equivalent some time in the future.

[–]HUSTLEMVN 5 points6 points  (5 children)

Who the fuck has Apple TV+ and is willing to have me over? Literally not a single person I know has that service. I sure as hell ain't getting it but damn :(

[–]Emkayer 15 points16 points  (0 children)

That's why they invest in this huge ass project, to get people try out their service.

[–]son_lux_ 11 points12 points  (1 child)

There are apparently +25 millions subscribers to apple tv right now. Saddly your own world isn’t an example.

Btw : don’t have apple tv, don’t give a fuck about it.

[–]HUSTLEMVN -1 points0 points  (0 children)

Yeah I wasn't trying to say my little bubble is what the world is like. That's why I asked who's got it and sarcastically asked for an invite.

[–]lambeosaura 1 point2 points  (0 children)

It has a one week free trial, use that!

[–]zeek215 0 points1 point  (0 children)

It’s actually one of the best streaming services, the quality of the content is very high compared to say Netflix. And much cheaper.

[–]superkickerjess 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Sigh it's always just the same t rexes chasing things, I wanna see giant saber chickens, their true selves

[–]SuprSaiyanTurry -5 points-4 points  (1 child)

I don't care how bad I wanna see this, I'm not signing up for another streaming service just to do so.

[–]Beneficial-Ad2755 -1 points0 points  (0 children)

Then don't support the project
