I don't hear it....
9 January 2017 | by MartinHaferSee all my reviews

I read the two other reviews for "Nature's Weirdest Events" and noticed that both complained vigorously about the narrator's strange speech impediment. Well, perhaps it's more noticeable to Aussies or folks from the UK...I just didn't notice it and don't see what all the hubbub is about his speech. Now I am not saying the show is perfect...but I only noticed the Elmer Fudd-like speech when I was looking for it...and even then it seemed very minor.

As for the show, "Nature's Weirdest Events" is a British series that is about weird and often creepy natural events. Many involve dead or dying animals, plagues of too many animals or bugs or climatic events such as sand storms. Much of the video is really surprising to watch...and pretty cool. But I also should mention that it's also, at times, a bit hard to watch. If you are afraid of huge numbers of creepy, crawly things then this show is NOT for you! I think most kids and guys like me, however, would find the series pretty cool as it's educational AND awful at the same time! Overall, worth seeing for the right audience.
