good nature doc
2 November 2018 | by SnoopyStyleSee all my reviews

This is a two episode TV nature documentary narrated by David Attenborough about deceptive plants, many of which were studied by Charles Darwin to the disbelief of other scientists. The first episode Murder and Mayhem examines the many types of carnivorous plants. The second Sex and Lies examines the trickery of some orchids. It's fascinating and beautiful. The carnivorous plants are awesome and wonderous. The orchids are informative but a bit dry. The first episode is a must watch and a definite nine. The second is good homework studies but it's not quite as fascinating. Overall, this is good for those who love nature docs or plant loving kids.
