Should be titled, Blue Planet 2: Human Parasites Have Killed the Oceans, They Are All Dead and There is No Hope, You Are ALL Evil, We Hate You!

So many shaming lectures, so little humility even though they claim to be discovering new species every dive.

Unfortunately, the BBC now fully embraces the malevolent belief that humans are but evil parasites, our oceans are all going to hell and it's all our fault. Watch out. This is the same malevolence that prompted the devastation of the last century.

A few words from Steinbeck's pal on Cannery Row, the great Doc Ricketts, would be most welcome at various points in this series. Doc correctly observed that nature is very forgiving and adaptable. if we stop doing just one bad thing or start doing just one good thing, all kinds of species return in strength.

That kind of science doesn't fit the BBC's globalist ideology, where all is gloom and doom. If only humans would all just die.

There is even a horrifying transgender fish!

I miss the relaxing, starry-eyed romp and magnificent George Fenton music of the original series. The music here is adequate but you can keep the soundtrack this time, thanks. The techies are expanding their expertise in the use of filters to color the great blue expanse and the gorgeous fish.

I'm hoping the subjective, negative drone of Blue Planet 2 will inspire other ocean scientists to question the BBC's arrogant and, in fact, very dubious doom-filled claims and create a fresh, alternative ocean series. There is certainly more to know about the oceans. I wouldn't like the BBC vision to be the last word.
