A Fascinating Nature

I want to highly recommend BBC's Planet Earth series, a gargantuan undertaking of nature documentation. The documentary has 11 episodes, 50 minutes each, all in high-res. And it really immerses you into the soul of nature. I've noticed, in myself, an increased sensitivity to animals and plants as a result of the series. This low-res YouTube doesn't quite do it justice, but it does show you the kind of visuals and sound to expect:

If you're a latecomer to movie piracy, I want to use this opportunity to give you a step-by-step guide to painlessly acquiring this amazing documentary (PC only)

1. Install pre-requisites:
- uTorrent
- VLC media player

2. Download the torrent. Go to isohunt and click on the first listing, and then click "download .torrent."

3. When the download is done, open the downloaded files in VLC. If you have trouble finding the files, double-click on the green "u" icon in your system tray, then right-click on the torrent, then choose "Open containing folder."

There's no spyware, the programs aren't memory hogs. I've been doing this for a couple years now. And its a BBC Documentary, so it's guilt-free.
