One of the weirdest documentary series that can be found. The irony of John Wilson manifests itself in episodes with strange themes such as scaffolding or ways of covering furniture. The mastery of the project is in how it manages to make each episode drift towards unusual paths, which cast doubt on the lucidity of the human being. It is an unusual look at life, a discovery of the most remote places of our existence.
going into this I thought the awkward presentation would eventually become unbearable, but honestly after the first few episodes I was hooked. its absurd. I can't look away.
Information may have been interesting or amusing, but impossible to listen to this person's delivery.
I just can't get past the insanely monotone and babbling narration of this show. Zero effort was made to make him sound even remotely presentable. He stumbles over his words, babbles, provides lots of "um" and "uh" and is quite possibly the most boring speaker ever to grace a documentary. Has he not heard of post-production and cleaning up the narrative to be something of interest for anyone over the age of about twelve?
The content is somewhat interesting but random. As you watch the show you can see that it's basically all confirmation bias - there are lots of totally random videos of random things that are then narrated as though they are intentionally filmed for the sake of the topic when in reality they are all just totally random videos this guy took while walking around NYC that get thrown into the narrative as being a way to demonstrate his extremely scattered thought process.
Personally I don't understand how this show is rated so well except that the topics, themselves, are unique and quirky, the delivery is so horrible that it's like watching the most boring PBS special being narrated by someone who has a 5th grade grasp on the English language.
Take the topics and even the random video and have it narrated by someone who can actually present intelligibly and this show would be more interesting.
Season 3 rated a 9
Probably the greatest show of the 2020s.
If you want to waste your time watching homosexuals masturbate each other out of nowhere, this is the show for you.
