Change the narrative & narrator Please!
6 December 2013 | by creative_choicesSee all my reviews

I have been watching a lot of ID lately. I enjoy the crime stories over all. In general they are similar with a few twists. Tonight was the first time I had watched an episode of "Nightmare Next Door" & I have to say I'm not sure I will watch it again. Not because the storyline was bad & uninteresting. On the contrary the storyline was quite similar to most of the other crime stories on ID. The basic outline & setup was basically the same with a background story & interviews with those involved in the case.

The part I had difficulty with was the Narrator & Narrative. I don't mind when a show (even like these) add a bit of humor here & there; like "Elder Skelter" where you have a cute lead in & out with the older women. However the way this show uses puns & humor throughout feels almost disrespectful to the storyline itself. Honestly I'm not sure if it is the puns/humor or if it is just the fact that the Narrator sounds like he is narrating a 10 ten best of show or some cheesy drama reenactment with humorous intended undertones. Either way it really takes away from the content of the show.

As I said this was my first time watching & this happened to be a rerun from 2012 "Prescription for Murder" so I may it a second try but if it is anything like the first one I will have to skip this series.
