Super/Natural season 1 review – think you know nature, think again


An excellent series, simple and pleasant to look at. There is always so much to learn about the amazing creatures we share this planet with.

The Disney+ Documentary Series Super/Natural Season 1 was released on September 21, 2022 – this is the review.

The latest National Geographic documentary series is finally here. Awesome/Natural is by Oscar winner James Cameron (Avatar Titanic) and narrated by Oscar-nominated and BAFTA-winning actor Benedict Cumberbatch (Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness, Sherlock Holmes) This new series uses the latest scientific innovations and cutting-edge film technology to reveal the secret powers of the world’s most extraordinary animals. There are six episodes in this first season, roughly between forty and fifty minutes long, enough to either watch in an evening or spend a week making time for.

Wildlife and documentary lovers can expect great things, the cinematography and locations alone are breathtaking. There are already so many wildlife documentaries, is this one different or unique? Not really. We get slightly different content in the analysis and the creatures we see, but like similar documentaries, we have amazing footage, a well-known narrator, educational value in terms of script and purpose, and the dramatic build-up to survival techniques. That doesn’t mean it’s any less deserving – if you’re a fan of nature, wildlife and our planet, you should put this series on your list.

Using Cumberbatch’s soothing but serious voice, he helps intensify the drama and dangers the creatures are going through and shed light through the good. His voice guides the audience and the scripts are clear and concise, providing just the information we need to visually understand what’s happening. Filming is quite extraordinary if you take a moment to think about what you are physically seeing. There are intense close-ups so you can see the tiny hairs of bees, the pheromones that animals emit, birds in flight, and tiny water droplets, things you wouldn’t be able to see without this technology.

The episodes start with the smaller woodland creatures like squirrels, little birds, beetles and hawks and teach us how these wonderful little creatures talk to each other and form little friendships/alliances and band together to survive extreme adversity.

I love owls, I could watch documentaries about them on my own, so I was happy to learn more about these crazy carnivores. Seeing them mimic rattlesnakes to deter predators is amazing. I’m also very happy to see baby cheetahs (any type of cat) but I’m a softie and I always worry about the animals and don’t want them to get hurt. Watching the baby elephants struggling to get to the water made my heart ache. Each episode has a good mix of content and they take us to different parts of the world, from vast lands to closed forests, and every minute is colorful and captivating.

I can only say with awe that this documentary series is something special to learn more about our planet and its incredible creatures. There are very magical moments, like watching a Mexican wave of fireflies, and there are sadder, heart-pounding moments. There is so much in our world to explore and relationships to understand that I envision we’ll be bringing many more similar documentary series to our streaming services very soon.
