If you’re planning on watching Jurassic World: Dominion this weekend in order to get your dinosaur fix, I’m here to tell you that there’s another, better way. That better way is none other than Apple TV +’s Prehistoric Planet.Narrated by Sir David Attenborough himself, Prehistoric Planet is a nature documentary about the lives of prehistoric creatures, with each episode exploring how they co-existed in different environments. Imagine any dinosaur documentary you would watch at a natural history museum, then add Apple’s budgetary power, and you’ve got a gorgeous, engrossing look at the creatures who used to roam the earth.

Credit: Apple TV+ In many ways, Prehistoric Planet is the spiritual successor to Planet Earth. It weaves stories out of the lives of its subjects, accompanied by stunning visuals and the dulcet tones of Attenborough’s voice. However, while the footage in Planet Earth is real, the footage in Prehistoric Planet is created from CGI, as our dinosaur friends died out millions of years ago.You’ll have to keep reminding yourself of that fact as you watch the show. Prehistoric Planet’s visual effects are so spectacular and life-like that you may wonder, “Huh, has David Attenborough been hiding live dinosaurs from us this time?” Seriously, every dinosaur we encounter, from Tyrannosaurus Rex to Triceratops, feels like it’s right in front of us. It’s enough to make you worried for the people…
