As several have pointed out there is definitely something 'off' about the whole doc ... the under water 'dialogue' was certainly added afterwards. Doesn't sound remotely natural. The stupid flicking back and forth between black and white film to color, the suspenseful music ... "Look over there! What is that?"


Answer: Its horse hockey ... very sad, very insulting. Not something you expect Nat Geo to attach its name and reputation to.

Ok, let me get this right. First of all only ONE of the divers had the "gear" to complete underwater communication.... The rest only had regulators........ Secondly the narrator stated that for each hour of discovery, they were finding new species..... How is that possible when they only had 15 minutes of bottom time ? Someone screwed up........

At that depth, don't the researchers need more protective suit - helmets, and protection for the face and bare hands?

At the end of this Documentary 'Dinofish', one of the divers saw something amazing further down. He was supposed to come up with the rest of the guys but curiosity got the better of him. The diver took photos in amazement. Then the commentator finishes up saying 'there's more out in the ocean than we know of'. Obviously. What did that diver find? Will it show it in the next airing on March 3rd?
