Would Have Rated 10 But the Narrator Is The Pits
4 February 2020 | by curtamparoSee all my reviews

The visuals are gorgeous. I was perennially covered in goosebumps and streaming tears over the beauty, the fragility, the wonder of it all. BUT that required an extreme exercise in blocking out the narrator, in fact several times I muted the TV and played classical music instead. She nearly put me into a depression bordering on coma. She sounds like a severely depressed robot even during delightful or high action scenes. She could not possibly drone on more uninterestingly if that had been her plan. In short, gorgeous nature show ruined by the narrator. Can't imagine who she auditioned for that thought she was even remotely a good choice, much less the "winner" for the job. As you can see, this review barely mentions the beautiful visuals and carries on all about the narrator... THAT'S HOW BAD SHE IS.
