Discovery Channel's "BUD/S Class 234": Unlike anything you've ever seen before"
11 February 2005 | by (Chicago, IL) – See all my reviews

BUD/S Class 234 is not only an eye-opening experience into the six-month selection process that Navy SEAL aspirants must go through in order to sit atop the Special Operations community pyramid, but it offers insight into the type of people who want to and eventually become SEALS.

The most annoying thing about this series, however, is the female narrator. Suffice it to say that her mock-officious, ultra-snide and sterile voice belies her actual comprehension of what is going on.

This rings especially true when she makes comments like, "So-and-so is being dropped for his failure to pay attention to detail," or "so-and-so's poor attitude and lack of physical fitness have contributed to his own downfall."

Oh yeah, and let's not forget that this is after having done two hours of push-ups. Bottom line is that the narrator comments are really annoying and by the third hour, will begin to grate on your nerves.

It goes without saying that BUD/S class 234 is like nothing you've ever seen before.
