Jason Hildebrandt's deathly dull narration makes me want to slit my wrists.
11 April 2010 | by (San Francisco) – See all my reviews

The much anticipated Wild Russia series was dazzling in its scope and photography. But high expectations can be deadly, as is certainly the case here.

The careful and studied narration of Jason Hildebrandt utterly killed Wild Russia for me. I actually had to stop watching the series half-way through, even though I positively love wildlife documentaries. How such a jaded-sounding and boring voice could EVER be chosen to narrate this important investment is beyond me. His repetitive and utterly predicable cadence, as I said, finally overwhelmed me, and I had to stop watching.

With so many engaging and wonderful narrative voices for this genre out there, it's truly tragic that a project this important and time-consuming could actually be all but destroyed by the voice of a narrator. (I note with horror that Mutual of Omaha's Wild Kingdom just aired a piece using Hildebrandt. What the heck is going on? Am I the only one who thinks this guy's voice is just horrible for this genre?)
