Entertaining and educational . . .
14 July 2014 | by Harvest McCampbellSee all my reviews

While this is not an incredibly serious look at endangered animals, who really deserve a serious look; it is none the less entertaining and educational. I found myself getting curious about Stephen Fry, who I had never previously heard of. Turns out he is a rather famous British comedian, though I didn't find him particularly funny. However; I did become rather fascinated with the classy sort of understated way he accepted and projected his cultural/sexual orientation. He was classy and understated about it, yet at the same time just out and accepting of himself and his orientation as normal. And at the same time he was just a wee bit campy and projected and had fun with stereotypes about classy urban gay men. Roll that all up into an outdoor adventure series about endangered animals, and how could it not be entertaining?
