Good Series Except for the Narrator's Mispronounced Words
4 November 2018 | by fitwriteSee all my reviews

This is a good crime docudrama, but it's hard to tune out the narrator when you have to listen to him. The series has had more than one narrator, but the one I'm referring to is Joe Alaskey. He doesn't get that the "H," when it comes after "W," is silent.

So all throughout the show you will constantly hear "H'what," "H'where," "H'why" etc., though strangely, he doesn't do this with "who" or "whoever."

And he's very obvious about transposing the "W" with the "H." I don't understand why the director allows this. It truly is annoying and sounds unprofessional. I hope Joe Alaskey reads this. The "H" when it comes after "W" is SILENT!

Alaskey gets so carried away with this gimmick that sometimes he actually says "Ha-where," "Ha-while," "Ha-whenever," etc. Just stop this!
