Have You Seen ‘One Strange Rock’?

Disney+ has a lot and surprisingly, my favorite category on the streaming service is National Geographic. That’s where I discovered the ten-episode documentary series detailing the incredible and sometimes otherworldly through the observation of eight fascinating and inspiring astronauts. The series, narrated by Will Smith, is one of the best documentaries I’ve ever seen, delivering a fantastic tale of Earth that has made me appreciate this strange rock I live on even more.

And even though it’s very clear that down here we deal with the woes of the world it’s nice to, for nearly an hour, escape to space (via One Strange Rock) where you can see the world with a space-station view that is utterly breathtaking by every standard.

If you have Disney+, I implore you, during this forced staycation that is transpiring all over the world, to check this series out. It is beyond informative, each episode is absolutely riveting in a different way, and most of all, it’s a beautiful show.

You get to see areas of the world you didn’t even know existed, you get to travel through remote locations on all seven continents, and you get to discover things that will most likely stick with you for the rest of your life.

I’ve watched a lot of nature films and series but this undoubtedly has to the best one I’ve seen so far.

I thank you for reading and I hope you have a great day.

Disney Plus Has a Lot

There’s a consensus going around that Disney+ isn’t exactly worth owning after The Mandalorian‘s first season came to an end but I would like to say otherwise. Disney+ is an absolutely essential streaming service to have, specifically if you have children. This service has SO MUCH.

From Disney animated classics, all of the Pixar greats, Star Wars galore, and PLENTY of Marvel content, but what has struck me the most and has actually become my favorite category on the streaming service is National Geographic.

There is so much content we’re still discovering under National Geographic and so much of it is actually REALLY interesting. Such as the nature show, Hostile Planets, narrated by Bear Grylls. The show taught me a lot and showed me things I’d never seen before, which is rare among these nature shows that seem to show the same thing over and over again.

There’s also another really good show called One Strange Rock featuring Will Smith that showcases the amazing phenomenons about the planet we inhabit called Earth. And that’s just the tip of the iceberg.

Disney+ has not only been a vessel for sheer entertainment but it’s managed to educate me about things I previously had no idea about, making this streaming service far greater than I ever could’ve expected.

If you’ve been on the fence on owning this service I highly recommend it. There’s a lot to love on this service for all ages and that’s what makes Disney+ so special.

I thank you for reading and I hope you have a fantastic day.
