Yes, that got on my nerves. For some reason I also disliked the fact that Sigourney Weaver was the narrator. For those of you not in the States, she's an actress. I doubt she even processed most of what she said.
"A mariner sat in the shrouds one night, The wind was piping free; Now bright, now dimmed, was the moonlight pale, And the phospher gleamed in the wake of the whale, As it floundered in the sea."
Yeah, I agree. I actually would prefer a male commentator (this is not being sexist, just discussing the tone quality of the voice) like David Attenborough. I like the narrator for the sections on how they film the various sequences.
I've watched the deep ocean and mountain. The flim and photography skill is absolutely incredible! But as Kleophon said, some things said are not quite right. The narrator didn't particularly bother me, but I wasn't enamored with the voice either. For the most part, I think it's an awesome, well put together documentary series.

what the frack? Sigourney Weaver was narrating on yours? i'm sure she didn't narrate the original version.
