Obnoxious, grating presentation of interesting topics
I need to second GrowTesk's appraisal of the editing skills displayed in this series. I find the writing and subject material very interesting and logically planned, but whoever was in charge of the decisions to end all talking head sound bites with a stylized, sound modulated black and white close-up for dramatic emphasis needs to be drummed out of the business. Whoever hired them needs to be slapped and fired. The snapshot sound effects for every still was overused and passé. The overbearing and intrusive 'background' music was discordant and obstructive. This type of hackneyed, lazy, immature treatment of the topics practically ruined the experience for me. It actually made me angry after a short while, and I had to stop watching.
