Very grating to listen to

By Smak - Oct 05 2019

I like Sharky, but his vocal delivery is so sing-song and over-the-top it makes each episode unbearable. It’s a shame because there is occasionally good content here. It’s like listening to a top 10 announcement that never ends, and shoots nails into your ears.

Too much opinion too little unbiased facts

Endless complaining about what host does not like. Tired of hearing about how bad film and mirrored cameras are.
