KBS Drama Special 2019: House of the Universe

I remember the old glory days at D-Addicts and it was there where in 2010 I fell in love with KBS concept of a series of stand-alone episodes, dealing with topics usually not seen in regular dramas. And not because they were socially insignificant or dull. They were small, centered around one person and affecting only a handful of those around them. 
This is why, after a long break, I'm back to KBS Drama Special episodes and as I mentioned earlier - I will work my way back all through to the 2015 when I left.

Serengeti (2019) Episode 4: Misfortune

Episode 4 where we have Shani, a zebra mother separated from her foal, lion sisters trying to reunite with their pride, three black-maned lions killing everything with a pulse, rite-de-passage (literal) for a male elephant. some baboon conflict and wild dogs trying to outsmart hyenas. Spoiler alert: futile.

Serengeti (2019) Episode 2: Conflict

A conflict between first-time Mama Cheetah and both hyenas and jackals. 
Also a small brawl between male elephants. Cause they have to measure who has a longer... err...trunk. As all males do. 
Also, I am clearly a cat lady. My screenshots are heavily on the big cats side.

TV Series Opening 43: Tale of Nokdu

I couldn't find one, so I made one. 
I was waiting for November 5th to post it and also for the number 43 (cause I like the number 7).

Serengeti (2019) Episode 1: Destiny

 It's very cinematic and the photography is beautiful but...
But it anthropomorphizes the animals a tad bit too much for my taste. 
I will continue, though.

BBC Natural World: Weasels Feisty and Fearless (2019)

The documentary about not only weasels, but also about other members of the Mustalidae family.
Turns out - they can successfully hunt and kill rabbits.
It's not as engaging as other nature documentaries from the BBC, but still very informative.
