I knew I would love this series, but as I watch each episode it gets harder to choose which one(s) I like more than the others. Every episode slowly draws you in so you end up caring what happens to members of the family. I thought it would be the lion episode because I have a soft spot for them, but fantastic as it was I would put it in last place so far. This episode about the two painted dogs/wolves packs was simply superb and on a par with the chimp episode as far as tension goes. Following the two packs was like watching a brutal soap opera and the expertise of the crew was clear to see. For me the chimp episode was the most violent, but this episode was the most gruesome and hard to watch (I turned away two or three times) and I expect there will be complaints about it being before the watershed (in the UK). As far as I'm concerned the more realistic this kind of programme is, the more seriously people will become about the plight of all wildlife, not just endangered species like the painted dogs/wolves. Absolutely a 10/10 episode.
