Background music
22 November 2016 | by macmitzijSee all my reviews

I have to turn the sound off and read closed captions because the " music" drowns out the the voice of the narrator. Really annoying. My friends seem to agree, Maybe the powers that are behind the cameras think that the "music" adds dramatic effect but all it does is distract from the interesting content. I don't know who makes these decisions but hope they will revisit that decision and review it from the perspective of a viewer. Also having to write ten lines of text is pretty silly.
