Enchanted Forest (2020)

 

 I have to say, Doclights/ZDF documentaries quickly moved into my top 10 movies this year. It's not heavily sensationalized, overly dramatic or full of gimmicks like other companies (PBS, I'm looking at you). The narration is calm but explains everything that needs to be explain with a dash of humor.

KBS Drama Special 2020: To My Assailant/The Teacher

 

This was an uncomfortable watch, if I am to be honest, and knowing KBS DS, the ending could swing in any direction. I was so glad it went that way.

KBS Drama Special 2020: Modern Girl


And KBS Drama Special 2020 kicked off... after leaving us stranded with the previous season and unfinished episodes. However, it started with a strong message - that no one has the power to decide your own future but yourself.

Islands of Wonder 3/3: Hawaii (2020)

 

In this episode we witnessed the disappearance of the Hawaii archipelago, the oldest bird in the wild (a 67-yo female albatross named Wisdom), fish that can climb upwards the waterfall, and humpback whales that come to Hawaii for winter.
I'd love to do that as well.

Album Cover Part 3


In this episode - album covers featuring nature. I know, there are lots of those, so I had to do a harsh selection. In addition to first post rules, this one also doesn't feature: humans, Deep Forest albums and SHINee. Why SHINee you may ask? Well, they ARE the natural marvel, so...

Islands of Wonder 2/3: Borneo (2020)

 
In this episode we visited Borneo - and its inhabitants. Like gliding reptiles (over 20 species), pitcher plants that feed on insects or bat's guano, orangutans who know what and how to apply for arthritis, and a dwarf forest with dwarfed trees.

Islands of Wonder 1/3: Madagascar (2020)

 

If you thought Australia was weird - meet the Madagascar menagerie: a pelican spider that hunts other spiders (and looks like a pelican too), a tenrec that can produce a litter of 35, and in danger rubs spikes on their back to sound the alarm (the largest litter of all the mammals and the only one that does this kind of warning), a tiny chameleon that lives for 4 months only, aye-aye with one creepy finger from your worst nightmares...
