The first episode of “Planet Earth II,” the sequel to BBC’s acclaimed documentary miniseries, aired Sunday. And it was amazing.
Possibly the most stirring moment in the episode involved a lone lizard and a minefield of snakes.
It’s shot (and edited) cleverly to resemble a heart-pounding action thriller. But the moments of tension, bursts of speed, death-defying leaps, and near-captures are all real.
There’s dramatic tension.
Watch below, and see how it ends.
