Plot: What’s it about?

Well, see, there’s these fish. They swim around in a tank for an enormously long amount of time. For the first time in my life, I feel what it’s like to be a fish. Actually, it is rather interesting. There really is no “story” to report on…it’s just fish in a tank for a long amount of time (even longer if you choose the “repeat” option). That is all.

Video: How does it look?

If you press your nose up against the side of an aquarium (and I did, as I was really into this review), you get the same effect of the video of this DVD. 16:9 enhanced, full frame, letterbox widescreen…you get it all. I tell ya, the fish were ready to swim into my living room!

Audio: How does it sound?

You’ve never heard anything until you’ve heard aquarium bubbles in Dolby Digital 5.1 sound. There are four discreet soundtracks, one an aquarium soundtrack (bubbles), one is the sound of a beach, one is a relaxation sountrack and the last is a meditation soundtrack. All four will put you to sleep faster than 100 CC’s of Benalythine (I have no idea what that is, but let’s just assume it’s used for sleeping). Nevertheless, fish in surround sound is something everyone must experience.

Supplements: What are the extras?

Biographies of fish! Aptly titled, fishographies. They’re highly informative and I actually learned a thing or two. That’s about it, though. This is the second DVD 18 disc, if that counts for anything…Overall, a very entertaining disc if you have nothing else to watch (and I usually don’t).
