    David Attenborough: A Life on Our Planet

    ★★★★

    Watching this with my two small sons (6 and 2) kinda fucked me up. I’m not an alarmist person, nor am I anxious in general. But listening to Attenborough laying out the very clear pathway to annihilation we’ve been trailing in so little time, and realizing it’s exactly my sons that will suffer the consequences broke something in me.

    This one was on my watchlist for a very long time. I guess it was worth the wait, because seeing it so close after the Mad Men finale really makes you think.
    Besides covering a similar timeframe (59-63 for the movie, 59-70 for the show), they also share a protagonist that is talented and successful, but conflicted about his role in society. Both are womanizers, prone to isolation fits, with laid back business partners that try to lighten the mood…
