So a friend suggested an 8 part nature documentary that largely features aquatic wildlife and animals dependant upon the oceans. That series was David Attenborough's BBC Blue Planet series. Once I saw it, I was completely blown away with how good it was. It wasn't simply a camera guy filming a reef with with swarms of random fish swimming by, it delved into riveting stories such as creatures of the extreme deep, killer whale attacks against grey whale calfs, polar bears attacking baluga whales, the anatomy of a bait ball attack (mackeral, dolphins, sharks, sailfish, marlin, and even a whale!), etc.

Every single time I watch it, I get sooo excited to dive. I've tried to find other documentaries that can hold a candle to the Blue Planet series and I've only found disappointment. What are some of the best underwater documentaries you've seen?

Check out the BBC's Planet Earth series too.

In part one,the episodes "From Pole to Pole" and "Freshwater."

In part two, to be shown later this year, the last two episodes are called "The Shallow Seas" and "Ocean Deep, Ocean Wide."
