DINOSAUR REVOLUTION Review – Bringing Humor to Dinosaurs

dinosaur revolution discovery channel
Discovery Channel premieres its four-part special mini series, DINOSAUR REVOLUTION, tonight, Sunday September 4th, at 9pm, and I can only urge you to check it out.

I stumbled into the Comic-Con panel for the series (I was waiting for the Locke & Key pilot screening) and had the best time ever. It ended up being one of my favorite panels at Comic-Con.

Dinosaur Revolution is of course for fans of dinosaurs, but also for people interested in finding out more about them. It illustrates some of the new discoveries surrounding dinosaurs and talks to leading experts. It is executive produced by Erik Nelson (Cave of Forgotten Dreams, Grizzly Man).

And while, I have never gone out of my way to find out about dinosaurs, the thing that made Dinosaur Revolution special to me is its humor. The information is not delivered to you dryly, oh no, there are stories and cliche moments (yes I said cliche) that make the whole series not only relatable, but memorable.

And while the animation itself of the dinosaurs might not be at the level of Jurassic Park), it doesn’t matter because the stories are so compelling and fascinating.

Finally, there is a great balance between the experts explaining things and the actual vignettes illustrating what we just learned.

Dinosaur Revolution is the first dinosaur series or documentary that I have ever wanted to watch from beginning to end and to this day, I thank the people at Comic-Con for scheduling that panel right before the Locke & Key screening.

So if you would love to find out more about dinosaurs, make sure you tune in tonight at 9pm and watch Dinosaur Revolution on the Discovery Channel.

In the meantime, you can check out a couple of scenes from the series below.
