Another Riveting Paleontology Documentary

(Savage Chickens) Dinosaurs are cool, don't get me wrong. And I almost never watch television, so honestly, I don't know if this has even been done (Though I do know BBC did First Life, I don't know if it has aired in the US... well, okay, according to Wikipedia, it has.) But the fact that some extinct animal, or plant, for that matter, isn't a dinosaur, isn't gigantic, and isn't (gasp!) even a vertebrate doesn't mean it's dull. So while I enjoy the above comic, I sort of resent the attitude that spawned it. (This shouldn't be taken as a criticism of Doug Savage, the artist, but rather of broad attitudes in our society.)
