Your car got booted while you were in the laundry discovering that they lost your favorite shirt. In short, it's been a lousy day. But it could be worse, as this unsettling series proves, using state-of-the-art computer animation to revisit past disasters and then depicting how a repeat of the catastrophe would affect the modern world.
In an environment not conducive to human survival, it's easy to understand why "Continent 7" is the first-ever global long-form documentary series filmed in Antarctica. Scientists and survival experts join forces on the ice, underneath it, and atop mountainous peaks -- fighting brutal conditions along the way -- to conduct life-changing research. These scientists and the community play a vital role in many urgent fields of science, from climate change to studies of glacier movement, active volcanoes and the search and tagging of marine megafauna that calls this ice home. The six-episode series also pays tribute to the mountaineers, mariners and helicopter pilots, among others, who help keep the scientists safe at work.
