Everyone F*cking Loved The Return Of 'Planet Earth'
Finally, ten years on from Planet Earth, Sir David Attenborough has brought us a second much needed dose of the groundbreaking program. And what better way to kick it off than to show us a swimming sloth?
The build up to Planet Earth II has been huge, and rightly so, because the first episode delivered, as you'd expect.
We're only getting six episodes this series, opposed to the 11 we were given in 2006, but that's okay, because as we've previously told you, Sir Dave is like the grandfather we all never had.
Of course, everyone loved his return.
The shots they manage to get on #PlanetEarth is just insane. Greatest in TV history.- Puneet (@Punz_97) November 6, 2016
