This show’s star has eight arms, nine brains, three hearts and can change color and shape. Now available in an English version, this international natural history copro follows teams of marine biologists as they study one of the world’s most baffling creatures, the octopus. Directed by Jerome Julienne and John Jackson, Aliens provides stunning glimpses of the octopus in its natural habitat as well as under the microscope as it undergoes assorted scientific tests to determine intelligence. With eight arms at its disposal, this ‘alien’ can’t help but grab you and reel you in (sorry, we couldn’t resist).
