Episode Summary

EDIT
Dino-Birds
AIRED:
Nigel Marvin goes back in time 125 million years to Cretaceous China for the dinosaur that supports the idea that birds are the direct descendants of dinosaurs, the Microraptor. He battles the volcanoes, poisonous volcanic gas, other dinosaurs, and forests of Cretaceous China. An Incisivosaurus and carnivorous Mei long test the team, but a herd of Titanosaurs bring out the gliding and climbing Microraptors which feed on the insects and worms churned up by the Titanosaurs. Still Nigel will have to work to capture the Microraptors with a special weapon.moreless

    In the third episode of the series, Nigel goes back to the beginning of the Cretaceous, to capture the reclusive Microraptor, the distant ancestor of the birds. However, the soon-to-explode volcanoes add the pressure to the already hard undertaking.



    A very good episode, less reliant on CGI and animatronics, more on human acting. Plus, it is less dependent on the previous works of the Impossible Pictures as the previous two(Walking with Dinosaurs and Walking with Prehistoric Beasts, respectively). Of course, the established tricks are present as well: the captured animals - the T-Rex siblings, the Ornithomimus herd, and the mammoth - have to be helped to adjust to the modern era. On the down side, though, Nigel's "gotta catch them all" attitude, reminiscent of Ash Ketchum from "Pokemon" starts to wear thin; however, the saved Titanosaurs' will be important in the episodes ahead.moreless
