    I watched it last night and the visuals were great, but the narration was…..sensationalist, though not quite on the order of that which inspired the fear of and hunting of sharks around the time the movie Jaws came out.  Also, dear god, the researcher with the beard was rather unfortunate.  He may have been playing it up for the camera, but it seems like he might have been staring into the dark depths for too long and part of him didn’t come back.

      Also, I want to see all the direct footage of the squid!

      Unfortunately, that’s the way most nature/animal documentaries are presented these days. There hardly is anything anymore that isn’t super cute, super deadly or both.

    Dude. . .  that squid is giving me the crook-eye.  I didn’t even do anything. . . .

    I tried to watch it, I really did. After the 4th or 5th fake static video transition (with accompanying sound), I gave up. Intentionally introducing such fake artifacts just annoys me.
