PLANET EARTH: DYNASTIES
January 26, 2019  | By David Bianculli

BBC America, 9:00 p.m. ET

 
As it’s televised in the United States, tonight’s episode of Dynasties, “Chimpanzees,” is the second in the series. You might presume, like I did, it would be less bloody and brutal than last week’s opener, “Lions,” but you’d be mistaken. There’s a lot of conflict in this particular group of chimps – it’s a jungle out there. But the way the Dynasties crew identifies and follows its subjects, season in and season out, makes it a very dramatic, and unforgettably relatable, drama. For a full review, see Alex Strachan’s TV That Matters. This series is simulcast across several sister networks in the AMC pantheon – not only BBC America, but also Discovery, AMC itself, IFC, and elsewhere.
