'North America' on Discovery HD
Surprisingly I didn't see another thread on this. 'North America' debuted on Discovery HD last night (5/19), it was pure eye candy watching on my new Sony VPL-HW50 projector. If you've enjoyed past Discovery HD series like Frozen Planet and Planet Earth, etc, this is certainly worth a watch. It'd be a great program to watch with the whole family, though keep in mind it shows nature as it is, with animals getting killed by it's natural predators.
