Random question but have you?
They used to have shows like Big Cat Diaries and Meerkat Mannor and such. They really focused on the animals with very little human screen time.
Now they have shows like Tanked and Treehouse Masters which focus almost exclusively on humans. I don't even think there are animals on Treehouse Masters lol
I'm disappointed because I thought the older shows were really interesting. I enjoyed watching the channel because of the animal documentaries and now it seems very unanimal haha

All initially-themed TV channels eventually abandon their theme and move towards the lowest-common denominator because that's what makes them the most money. Even if the founder is strongly for the theme, he'll rarely be in the job more than a decade (he'll either retire or move to a more lucrative job) and the next guy will ditch the original theme to grow the bottom line.

I LOVED Orangutan Island! Meerkat Manor and Big Cat Diary were also awesome. Treehouse Masters is actually pretty good, but different from what the channel used to be about, yes. I don't think Tanked or Treehouse Masters are that off base of like "the world" and "environmentalism". And I think Animal Planet includes more than just strictly animals. It'd be nice if they brought back some animal documentaries. They were probably a lot of work to make and film.
Pittbull Paroles is really good0
