Since we're re-naming things Judge Dawn Hunt wants to call the piece of space material formerly known as Pluto, Planet Dawn.
Ancient Egypt. For over 3000 years one of the world's most vibrant and puzzling civilizations flourished through war and peace. The Egyptians built great cities and enduring monuments, and they advanced mathematics and technology. Their astonishing legacy survives to this day.
Planet Egypt is History Channel at its best, hock full of historical recreations, peppered with interviews and footage of ongoing excavations. If this ancient civilization interests you at all, this four-part mini-series will be right up your alley.
• "Birth of an Empire"
• "Pharaohs at War"
• "Temples of Power"
• "Quest for Eternity"
Presented in standard definition 1.78:1 anamorphic widescreen with a Dolby 2.0 Stereo mix, I detected no problems with the audio or video. Thankfully footage recycling (often a problem with these shows) was kept to a minimum. There are no extras.
I tend to get easily sucked into programs such as this. If you feel the same, don't hesitate to pick it up. Though I'm not sure why they called it Planet Egypt, when no mention of this phrase is ever made.
