    Predictably awesome. [27 May 2013, p.42]

    There are some hectoring musical passages and the narration, delivered by Tom Selleck, foregrounding the folksy creak in his voice, can run to the precious and dramatically over-personified.... It is gorgeous clean through.

    At its best, the narration, delivered by Tom Selleck, is clear and unadorned, but it occasionally falls into purple patches of grandiloquence.... A heavy hand prevails in the music cues, too, which can be cutesy or  obvious. Such emphatic accompaniment, in music and prose, is unnecessary when the images are so potent.

    It has lots of stunning images, but if there’s a unifying concept, it is apparently going to emerge more gradually than a single episode allows.

    The show has so much visual scope it’s easy to feel overwhelmed.
