These are great! The only thing is that I really can’t stand the vocal fry(?) on the (machine-generated???) narrator’s voice :(

Haha I didn't even think about that! Maybe they attempted to artificially lower the pitch of the narrator's voice to make it more... documentary-y.


It's really a nice series, bringing me back to when I was a kid watching the Discovery Channel. The combination of the subs and the visuals make it easy to follow along, but I wish I had the time to properly analyze the episodes for their vocab.
