Storyline

This 7 x 45 minutes series bestows a zoological freak show, presented by the exuberant and engaging Nick Baker. In a unique collaboration with the British Natural History Museum, this landmark series presented by Nick Baker takes us to some of the most remote and inhospitable corners of the globe in order to find the ugliest, slimiest and downright bizarre animals that grace the planet. These are the animals that Nick Baker has been longing to track down ever since his childhood days when he was ''dumped'' at the world-class repository of zoological wonders, the British Natural History Museum in South Kensington. Nick always found himself drawn to the most extreme, absurd and unusual exhibits. Some would dismiss these oddities as freaks of nature, but for Nick, these are the unsung heroes of evolutionary biology. Written by Adam Scott

Host, Nick Baker Annoying
12 March 2018 | by strong-122-478885See all my reviews

Yes. Indeed. Just like many other viewers out there - I am very, very interested in seeing and, yes, learning all about the "weird/bizarre/crazy" creatures that exist on this fantastically diverse planet of ours.

From armadillos, to lizards, to snakes, to sea creatures, to crocodiles, to whatever - Many of these critters have adapted for survival in some of the harshest environments on Earth. And, I am definitely fascinated by it all - 100%.

But - What I'm not interested in (not in the least) is having "explorers" (like Nick Baker here) in my face for far too much camera-time in these sorts of presentations.

Yes. I'm all for the educational information that's offered here in regards to these freaky creatures - 'Cause they, to me, are the stars of the show.

And, with that - I sure wished that Baker had remained behind the camera more often - 'Cause I sure didn't tune into this show to see him. No way. (Though I do suspect that the loud and boisterous Nick probably thinks otherwise)
