Oddly formal, cold, and then weird

By SeattleCapHill - Nov 28 2019
Read more
There’s a lot of good information in this one, but the delivery is formal, detached and the narrator often drones on like she’s annoyed or put off to even read her script in hyper-speed aloud. Pair that with random, post-recorded sound effects, and the whole thing is just...super weird.
