Could have been so much better!
1 December 2019 | by davebremer56See all my reviews

Most people love a making of documentary. If it wasn't so stupidly dumbed down and narrated by someone with an incredibly annoying voice then it could have been great. With the stupid commentary and idiotic little cartoon jingles, it seems to have been made for 6 year olds!!
