Made more enjoyable due to the documentary's senses of humor.
If you want to know about the infamous Cane Toad and its invasion of Australia, have I got a documentary for you! "Cane Toads: The Conquest" is wonderfully written, very interesting and has a nice sense of humor--exactly what the layperson would want in such a film. Sure, top-notch researchers from around the globe might not enjoy it as much because it is all 'sciency', but it is very well done and worth your time. The film follows the insane rationale behind the dreaded amphibian being deliberately released in the country as well as the inextricable spread of the creature. In addition, the film interviews lots of folks--some which hate the things and a few weirdos who actually think the Cane Toad is pretty neat (why, I have no idea). Overall, the show has a nice balance of humor, information and entertainment and it's well worth seeing.
