Did anybody catch this last night? It was really cool. They took the approach that Dragons were actual animals and imagined how the would have evolved, and the science and physiology that would have allowed them to fly and breath fire. Very interesting. And it was narrated by Patrick Stewart!!

Yeah, I saw it and actually thought it better than I anticipated. I wasn't surprised that the nice CGI was done by Framestore- the guys who did Walking WIth Dinosaurs.

I was wondering if that was Patrick Stewart's narration- Thanks, Vlad!

I saw a quick glimpse of it and it did look interesting, I caught the bonding ritual between the two dragons in their love dive and it looked pretty good.

I thought it was pretty good too. Made me want to go and watch Dragonheart and Reign of Fire. :D

I never thought about hydrogen bladders to make them lighter to fly. And the fact that it can be used to make fire as well. Great stuff and creative way of making dragons come to life.

Yes. You can tell that a lot of thought went into making them as real as possible.
