    Perhaps Ms. Wright should dismount from her self inflated high horse and take her own advice and take a 'Chill Pill'. No one is disputing the fact that WE provides us with an exceptional viewing experience. The fact that some portions are portrayed as 'Live' when in fact they are not, obviously does not sit well with some viewers. Jamie's segment with the young hippo and hyenas was portrayed as 'Live' until after the breakaway. If the 'Smoke & Mirrors' did not sit well with some viewers, WE should be aware of it. It may have been a minor gliche they missed and next time they will catch. One does not know and certainly Ms. Wright does not know. Perhaps WE should run a chyron at the bottom of pre-recorded segments informing the viewers or the Presenters can state it during their segment intro. In that way, some viewers will not feel mislead. WE is doing a great service for their viewers and constantly improving their shows, no disputing the fact. However, I am sure they appreciate the feedback they receive, negative and positive. It all works in tandem: Viewers - Sponsors - Shows.
    Wellow Wanderer presented their comment respectfully and did not deserve pushback from someone who obviously believes their opinion is the only correct one and how dare anyone voice differently. We can agree to disagree but to declare it is 'Not an issue'. How self aggrandizing, geesh! And if you "Want to enjoy it without negative comments", do not read them and stay in your safe space.

    My ancestral lineage comes from a matriarchal cosmology where we view ''the wilderness" as a sacred and whole being. We are able to inhale and honor the beauty of the whole. We do not compartmentalize and dissect nature to amplify danger, bloodshed, fear, competition etc. We recognize and honor all of the cooperative components at play! Wild earth and all of her inhabitants are 'The Sacred'. She is our sacred mother. Honor and respect ♡

    I get this is about the challenges that animals face, but every single time they say 'gauntlet' I physically cringe because the word is so phenomenally overused and oftentimes not used correctly....

    Great programme, but I think SL needs to make it clearer which Mara segments are live and which are pre-recorded. The light (lack of) is a give away once you see Brent in the dark and he says he's live. But until then, only Tayla made it clear that she was doing a catch up from the week. When James linked to Jamie at the start of the programme, and Tristan later,  the links seemed as though we'd be going live to Jamie. The comments on the YouTube chat showed a lot of confusion, even from regular viewers.
