    Anyone else watching "Meerkat Manor" on Animal Planet? For some reason, I find myself hooked on the ongoing soap opera of the Whiskers clan (and their rumbles with the rival Lazuli clan). [​IMG]

    And WTF is up with Yousirrian? He needs to be evicted from the clan. [​IMG]

    My ex tivo'd these and we watched them all last Saturday night--great stuff.
    I noticed the show was letterboxed so hopefully it will show up in HD one of these days.

    These are really amazing little beasties, with a very coherent society going for themselves. I quickly got past the "awww, ain't they cute" initial reaction and started to really get into the drama of this show.

    I saw the first episode but typically miss all of them as they're on a friday night. But when I go to my parents house, I always ask them, what's going on with MM..

    Is Shakespeare still alive, etc.. Poor guy!

    I can't believe Shakespeare survived! That snake must not have given him a full injection.

    Pretty arrogant of the Whiskers clan to make themselves at home in the Lazuli burrow. Sheltering from the storm is one thing, but just taking over the whole damn thing? I was hoping Flower and family would get their asses kicked.

    Hopefully the Lazuli are taking a chunk of Whiskers' territory in return.

    Caught it for the first time yesterday. I'm hooked as I've always enjoyed documentaries with a heavy dose of Meerkats. Thanks for this thread for making me aware of this little jewel.

    I can't watch it anymore. It is too sad to watch. [​IMG]

    I wouldn't be a very good documentary camera man. I would not be able to sit and watch a poor baby animal die. And I certainly would give some food to poor old shakespear.
