Hippo King

This is a beautifully filmed documentary, with great drone vistas, stunning close-ups, and puzzlingly drawn out slow motion takes. However, it completely lacks informational narrative. A made-up tale of an individual hippo followed through a span of 35 years would be OK if there was some factual content and information about hippos to bolster the story. Sanitized completely, (no mention of the drool or flying feces integral to posturing before a fight between bull hippos) and relying heavily upon anthropomorphic hype, this program serves to show how excellent the 2003 program Hippo Beach is in comparison.

While the experience of watching this program is enjoyable, don't expect to learn much about the physiology of or explanations behind hippo behavior.

Hippos are deadly, they can swim faster than us and run faster than us. The only saving grace is that they can't ride a bike, otherwise they'd dominate the triathlon.
