    Thanks. I saw one episode earlier this year. I wasn't really impressed.
    Rack on!


    • Original Poster

      Why weren't you impressed? Which episode did you see? Right now I'm watching the first one, Origins.

        IIRC the general take among horse-people is that there was an overemphasis on the Majikal Mystikal Equine(TM) (complete, in some cases, with Super Special Bonds!) and less actual relevant information/fun/interesting/new facts to an educated population. Which, in full disclosure, is probably fair. It may have done a very nice job for a non-equestrian audience.

        Some of it had interesting tidbits (I seem to recall the segment on the thoroughbred physiology to be fun to watch) but the narration was just over the top.

          Nature reran the first episode of "Equus" last night. NOVA had a program on early riders (as in ancient times). I started to watch it and decided it was time for bed. I'll likely try to catch it later. I agree with Edre's summary of our earlier conversations on "Equus." But, the photography was beautiful and it looked to me like they used some from the "Equus" series in this new NOVA series.
