The Octopus Show

A creature of the ocean deep takes center stage when NATURE presents The Octopus Show.

A new age of ocean exploration is lifting the veil of mystery shrouding a creature of legend — the octopus. Dreaded by sailors through the ages, this other-worldly looking denizen of the seas is surrendering the astonishing secrets that have brought it almost mythical status.

With footage of octopus species rarely, if ever, seen before — including one with giant eyes and another with antennae in place of suction cups — NATURE takes viewers into the deepest realms of the ocean for a front-row view of The Octopus Show.

    Octopus are so cool. And How they breed. hehehehehehehe:)

  • Lindsey

    I think octopi are majestic creatures. They happen to be very misunderstood, but are still beautiful creatures. They aren’t ugly, or gross, this is purely a reaction to something you’re not used to. If only you guys knew the way these creatures worked, you would be just as impressed with them as I am, and I’m only 17!

  • baffled

    I am completely confused by this webpage.
    Is this a Nature episode that aired sometime the past?
    Is this an episode that is scheduled to air sometime in the future?
    Is this an episode that is currently in production?
    Is this even an episode of Nature at all or just a webpage about the octopus that happens to be placed in the wnet/nature/episodes file structure?!
    I don’t understand the intent of this webpage, and I want to know! (Because I’m looking for a quality educational show about these wonderful, amazing creatures.)

I offer the thought processes above as general inspiration but clearly you will find questions like the one particular you bring up where it is important will be working inside honest good faith. I don? t know if guidelines have emerged around things like that, but I am sure your job is clearly recognized as a fair game.

    I am DYING to watch this program…does anyone know if it is still being aired? Or if it will ever be available on DVD?

  • smackdown oyunlari

    its very different but you wrote the truth, thank you very much.

  • Gena Seidenschwarz

    Octopi are really quite beautiful and even more interesting. How do they learn so much in such a short life? Way would anyone not use octopi when they mean more than one octopus? That is more mysterious than anything the show offers.

    Wanting to impress a girl on the first date we played frisbee with her dog. Frisbee gets stuck in tree. Wanting to look smart, I saw a long piece of wood nearby, got it and reached for the frisbee. Couldn’t quite get it so began to jump up to get extra reach. Success! And accompanied by a huge fart as I landed.
