I enjoyed watching and learning about the sea horses the most. I did not like how the octopus was treated as if it was an ugly monster. I didn't like the tone of voice and the attitude towards sea life expressed as if they were an object of comedic value. In otherwords I sensed very little empathy of any of the film maker towards his subjects.

This looks fascinating. Who had the good taste to sign Yo La Tengo on to score the TV show?!?
