Review: Battleground: Rhino Wars

Annoying Miniseries Delivers an Important Message

Battleground: Rhino Wars (Animal Planet, 9pm) - At least from the first episode it’s not at all clear what these gonzo men can contribute that South Africans themselves can’t manage, or who asked for their assistance, but the whole concept is somehow demeaning: colonialism resurrected for the benefit of an American TV show. The show may be annoying, but it is also blunt and fearless about documenting the effects of poaching.
