Just watched the first episode. Very informative and mind blowing.
Watching one strange rock with my kids on Nat Geo France.
So beautiful, so interesting, so instructive. Thank you for this documentary and thank you, Will Smith, perfect as always.
Truly loving #OneStrangeRock on @NatGeoChannel! Exceptional, awe-inspiring images from @NatGeo & @DarrenAronofsky w the sense of wonder spectacularly conveyed by @Cmdr_Hadfield & other space station astronauts. Unbridled enthusiasm on fascinating topics – such a treat! ✨
Bloody brilliant television. Amazing.
This is the Best show to come along since Cosmos (both versions) & Planet Earth. lots of fun and gorgeous to look at. Great format letting the astronauts POV come across. We only ever heard soundbites of interviews on what they see & how it makes them feel.
Absolutely amazing and beautiful. One of the best series on our planet so far… I’m thoroughly enjoying this series. Puts everything into perspective. Awesome job.
I’ve just seen the first episode so far but I am so hooked. It shows how everything that makes up nature is connected. People should watch and hopefully gain a better respect for this beautiful rock that sustains it and maybe we will treat it better.
Absolutely phenomenal! I would love to somehow share this (and other films alike) to everyone around the world. When people actually see and experience the beauties of nature, we instantly feel connected to it. Only by caring and understanding can we protect and conserve our blue planet. A must-see for all ages
We take so much for granted, each breath indeed! This show made me fall in love with our beautiful blue dot all over again! Thank you, thank you, thank you! May we all evolve, rid ourselves out the pettiness in this world, and be inspired, fascinated, and in love with our one and only home… EARTH!
Really changes the way you look at the earth and life in general
This show is wonderful! Will Smith narration is a great choice (go Eagles!). The astoraughts are auesome too. Graphics are beautiful. Love that people still care about our environment
I just watched the first episode, and I’m hooked! The images are beautiful, and I have learned things that I never knew before. Finally, the way the information is put together and presented is done so well that it is easy to understand. Thank you so much for this wonderful and educational show!
The most incredible, educational trip across the planet and above the planet that I never thought was possible. I now have such an appreciation for places I will never see in my life. We live in such small circles and this series brings us to the most beautiful and incredible destinations. The living organisms, the architecture, the nature…..just spectacular. I’ve learned more in just 10 episodes than I have in 43 years of life. The astronauts have the most amazing personalities and have unending knowledge. I’m writing this as I’m watching and i can’t focus. I don’t know how they managed to get all the videos from all these countries and continents, but OMG. You MUST watch if you haven’t already. Congratulations on this hopefully award winning series.
I love the series. Very thought provoking and great graphics. The question I have concerns the episode on our relationship with the sun. When talking about the effects of CO2 on our planet, no mention was made of the fact that plant life uses CO2 to grow. While I agree that we need to stop the artificial introduction of CO2 into the atmosphere, it is also true that increases in CO2 levels have increased plant growth. The political side of this, to me, is a separate discussion. What I don’t understand is how the effects of CO2 on plant life wasn’t even mentioned. It seemed to me as though CO2 was treated as a pollutant.
Coolest show on TV
This is a wonderful program. Thank you so very much for doing this.
This is the absolute best show on tv!!! Every episode blows my mind more then the last!!! Look forward to another season
This is easily the most spectacular programming ever to be televised in my opinion. Every minute of this show keeps me on the edge of my seat. I’ve even found myself hitting “pause” and just sitting there with my jaw on the floor, in complete awe of how amazingly mind blowing it is to think how all of the elements of existence fell so perfectly into place that we have our world today as we know it. Absolutely brilliant stuff. I wish more people were aware of this show.
I’ve never seen anything as intriguing, breathe-taking and awe-inspiring as “One Strange Rock”. If I could summarise it in just a few mere words, it sends shivers down my spine. I cannot even fathom how intricate it is to sustain a perpetual planet, to balance the scales of life and maintain a fragile system which the vast majority of this world takes for granted. The in-depth storytelling, the narration, the research, the composition of such a truly magnificent programme is in my opinion an award-winning documentary that deserves to be a part of the schooling curriculum around the globe. Environmentalists and educational institutions need to do significantly more to educate and raise such awareness documentaries to ensure that future generations are not only knowledgeable about such matters, but instead conform to driving and addressing future environmental issues. Policy makers are not only infamous in expressing statements such as “we must do or we must ensure”. Such statements are merely statements unless the mediocre efforts are shaped into tangible and actionable plans. Let “One Strange Rock” set the benchmark of how documentaries of this calibre should be produced in future. A commendation to the entire production team, scientists, biologists, environmentalists, astronauts and last but not least, Will Smith for a truly inspirational documentary that shaped my mindset and inspired me to be something more than just an average individual of humanity.
Two words for you: Thank You.
This is probably the best TV show I have ever watched. Beautiful photography, incredibly interesting, wonderful hosts, and an important message.
Everyone should watch it.
This show is a must-watch. It has some of the most breathtaking videography and photography. The flow of it is amazing and how it truly if watched with an open mind can show everyone how closely connected life on this planet is. And let it be known I am certainly not a liberal, or republican for that matter, and I’m not one to be known as an environmentalist but this is so perfectly educational and breathtaking an amazing at the same time. You’ll see things you never knew existed places you never thought of cultures that you never knew existed. And the most endearing quality to me which I hope they can carry on as they did in the first season is that it is not presented, at least in my opinion, with an agenda or a political slant it is just true amazing eye opening information and a journey that everyone should take. And no I don’t work for Nat Geo and I don’t know any of the people on the show this is a true honest objective opinion and I’m grateful for having had the chance to stumble onto it and watch it.
I give this the best rating possible. Blew me out of my chair, very mind-boggling when you think about how the whole planet has to work together or live would be very different. I haven’t felt this moved in a very long time thank you.
I’m just hoping more episodes are coming! It’s so eye opening! Loved every episode. I think I’m gonna watch it again!
Thank you Will, Daren , astronauts and all the talented people who worked on this show!
What a great documentary. Loved it. Thanks for creating this great show. I wish there was more episodes, I didn’t want it to end!
Please share this with the creators and everyone involved in this project so they know people love it.
Thanks, Larry Paul
Thanks for creating an amazing show!
The pictures & videography are amazing! Also, interviewing astronauts and hearing from so many of them are inspiring. We need to make these scientists, who are helping advance human civilization, the people we aspire to become.
Absolutely awesome series showcasing the amazing world we live in! Great job done! Enjoyed Will Smiths narration! It is disapointing that even after seeing how perfectly inter-connected this world is, the credit for its existence is “stardust” and right time right place chance. We don’t look at the Empire State Building and convince ourselves that it must have begun from a rock containing water and evolved over millions of years to become the beautiful structure it is. No, we give credit to the architects and builders. After watching this awesome documentary, do we not think we should do the same to the earths architect/builder. It’s so much easier to accept the elephant in the room than to skirt around in the dark for other explanations. Anyway the point of this doco is importantly for us is to do our bit and fight to protect this beautiful planet so again, awesome job of this documentary. I thoroughly enjoyed it.
just watched this program very recently (April 10,2019) in one of the German channels already in German Translation although i would rather see it without Translation. I was simply moved and i wish there is some Kind of public-viewing of this program in all bigger cities in the Phil. (my home-country) where Knowledge and Information About Earth isvery much needed. That Filipinos would have also appreciated the Islands seas and mountains that are fast dis-appearing. Thank you so much for this unique proram.
What an awesome series of factual programmes. My year 8 and 9 students love them. They have started wall displays and without being prompted 3 of them mentioned how the astronauts and Will Smith brought technology, physics, chemistry, biology, geography and cultural beliefs and even art together. My students have a much better understanding of the world around them. They particularly loved episode 10 when Peggy Whitson and the other astronauts described viewing the earth and seeing it with no borders; quite emotional. Thank you.
This program is amazingly beautiful, informative and mind-blowing. The subject matter is seamlessly put together to relate to us and our planet.
I have learned SO much about our Earth, our species and our universe.
This program includes information that is all related to us and shows you how lucky we really are to be, to simply be, and all because of Earth and what seems like lucky, magical coincidences.
What a grand endeavor and superb job!
I can’t stop watching it…my new binge that is feeding my brain.
I am watching this series on Netflix. It is not only a scientifically accurate depiction of what we know about our earth, but with gorgeous photography, real humanity and authentic narration.
Congratulation to the script writers, photographers, editors and the director of this amazing show.
