Horribly annoying narration sink this one...and it's a real shame.

I was interested in seeing this show because it features the New Zealands K'ea...a very clever parrot that inhabits the snowy mountains there. When I last visited the country, I was shocked how much these birds LIKE and THRIVE with people around them. When our mini-bus stopped, I had hoped to perhaps see one of these endangered birds...and was shocked that many were at the tourist spot because they LOVED getting handouts and rooting for food among humans.

So why didn't I like this documentary? Well, two big reasons. The biggest is that the narration is simply inane and instead of sounding scientific or intelligent, they went for something much like "America's Funniest Home Videos"! Bad jokes and supposedly clever remarks (they are simply annoying) make this tough going for anyone but kids. Second, the film is about the K'ea AND the New Caledonian Crow--birds who are very different and live over 2300 miles apart! It would have been much better if they film had stuck with one of the birds or provided a less tenuous way to associate them. Seeing the film bouncing back and forth from one of these animals to the next again and again was just sloppy. A HUGE disappointment overall.
