Meerkat Manor sezona 1. napokon na DVD :) ako pratite Animal Planet petkom navecer onda znate kako su slatka zanimljiva i nestasna ta mala zvrkasta stvorenja.

Nazivaju ih "mafijom" pustinje Kalahari u Africi, a kao i svaka prava mafija imaju par grupa od otprilike 40-tak clanova. Serija prikazuje zbivanja u "bandi" nazvanoj Whiskers a voda bande je dominantna zenka :) Flower i sto god ona odluci svi moraju pokorno poslusati, ali da prica ne bude presuhoparna, clanovi Whiskersa od onih najmanjih do najvecih su tako nepredvidivi i nestasni da im nikako nikada nije dosadno i uvijek nadu neku krivinu da zaobidu zakone mafije :)) a kao svaka mala zajednica imaju svoje unutarnje rasporede: ujutro kad se probude izadu iz svog brlogica pod zemljom i onda su svi obavezno zaduzeni za ciscenje (iskopavanje nanesenog pjeska preko noci, itd.) uglavnom SVI moraju raditi, ako tko zabusava Flower ce da odrzi bukvicu.. Kad dode vrijeme rucka bejbisiterice budu zaduzene za cuvanje doma i malisana a ekipa krece u lov za hranom, a hrane se kukcima, otrovnim skorpionima (posto su iz porodice mungosa mogu podnjeti i ugriz zmije koja bi covjeka usmrtila, lat.naziv im je: Suricata suricatta), gusterima, zabama, itd.. Dok se ekipa hrani na terenu, uvijek su zaduzeni i cuvari koji prate budnim okom sto se desava oko njih i ako se pojavi kakva opasnost upozoravaju ostale i trk u zaklon :)) Svaki clan ima ime, i svida mi se nacin na koji su im istrazivaci sa Cambridgea prisli.. Serija se prikazuje na Meerkatski nacin a ne na ljudski!!

Svi komentari za seriju kazu da su bolji od Sopranosa i Ozzbornsa zajedno..

Uglavnom, malo da vam ih predocim, ako ste gledali Lion King, Simbin fast-talking companion Timon je meerkat!!

Posto vecina zna engl.jezik a ja sam malo ljenija za prevodenje prenosim vam malo clanaka o njima..

Sve u svemu ako vam se pruzi prilika pogledati ih - NE propustite ju!!!

Meerkat Manor is a soap opera with a difference the main characters are 12 inches high, live underground in burrows and survive on a diet of worms, insects and lizards.

Made up of five to 30 members, the meerkat mob is probably more close-knit than Tony Soprano's family and just as effective at keeping their enemies at bay.

Don't let their cuddly appearance fool you though there's a good reason these meerkat families are called a "mob."

Narrated by Sean Astin of The Lord of the Rings and 24, Meerkat Manor was filmed over the course of a 10-year Cambridge University study. From family quarrels to love affairs to backstabbing worthy of a Shakespearean tale, these fuzzy reality-TV stars pack a huge dramatic punch.

In cooperation with Cambridge University, the story of the Whiskers mob is told from the perspective of the meerkats themselves. With no humans featured, film crews were housed in specially built sheds and, for the first time, successfully filmed inside a meerkat burrow using fibre-optic cameras.



With cameras recording their every move, Meerkat Manor introduces viewers to the Whiskers, a family of meerkats, revealing their personalities over the course of the series. Researchers call the Whiskers' matriarch "Flower," but she's neither delicate nor sweet she doesn't let anyone boss her around! Putting her newborn pups before all others, Flower isn't afraid of conflict and will stop at nothing to get her way.

Zaphod, the patriarch, defends the Whiskers at all costs especially against the rival gang of meerkats, the Lazuli. Zaphod seizes control of the family by overthrowing his brother and taking Flower as his own mate. It's Hamlet, only hairier.

But not all of the meerkats are fighters. A true hero, a meerkat called "Shakespeare," suffers a poisonous snakebite and rescues his brother from certain death. Carlos, a male from the rival Lazuli mob, finds himself in deep trouble when he woos three of the Whiskers' leading ladies.

Looking for drama amid the summer TV doldrums?
In a new series premiering Friday, over the course of 13 episodes viewers will see a kidnapping, vicious fights, a near-death experience for one of the characters, dangerous storms and more.

And the stars are far cuter than anything People magazine could ever put on its cover.

It's Meerkat Manor on Animal Planet (Fridays, 8 p.m. ET/PT), narrated by Sean Astin of The Lord of the Rings.

The animal series stars Flower, matriarch of the Whiskers meerkat clan. Meerkats, which stand 12 inches tall, are members of the mongoose family. This group lives in grass-lined burrows in the Kalahari desert and, like so many reality TV stars, they apparently have grown accustomed to the cameras that surround their home.

Flower's supporting cast grows to 37 meerkat family members by Episode 3, including Zaphod, the father of her pups; Tosca, her daughter; and Shakespeare, a young subordinate male who is bitten by a puff adder.

The footage is the result of more than a year of filming in Africa at a University of Cambridge study site. The value, says Tim Clutton-Brock, the professor and scientist heading up the program for the past 13 years, is that meerkats are one of the rare groups of animals whose cooperative society centers on a single dominant female. (Bees are another example; all workers do the bidding of the queen.)

But hasn't this serious scientist fallen in love with the little furry creatures?

"I wouldn't say I'm in love with them," Clutton-Brock says. But "I'm very fond of meerkats. They're a guinea a minute to watch" meaning, he says, that they're "fun."

"I've worked on elk we call them red deer. They're not nearly as interesting," he says.

"Meerkats are always up to something."

Mick Kaczorowski, executive producer of the series, notes that meerkats were made popular by The Lion King and an animated character named Timon (voiced by Nathan Lane). But the real meerkats in Meerkat Manor are just as animated.

"I think they elicit so much personality. Facially, when we go in on a close-up, it's just the way their head moves. It's such a unique animal. I'm not saying we actually know the personality of the animal, but you can see something in the face and eyes.

"I've worked on lots of natural-history films. Lions, big cats, they sleep 20 hours a day," he says. But meerkats are constantly on the go.

There are 26 episodes two seasons planned and ready, but there's enough footage for much more. Says Kaczorowski: "I could be working on meerkats the rest of my life. This is an endless story line."
