But, I'm sorry, the narration makes it such a chore to get through; I can't stand it. The Muppets should register more emotion and not constant monotone, flat delivery. And there's a number of times where I feel excess detail isn't necessary, which means I have to hear more of him.
Hmmm... that's very interesting. I find it quite official-sounding, akin to something I'd watch on TV.

I mean, that's how all his stuff is done, so I wouldn't randomly expect him to bring out a clown horn and act goofy cause it's the Muppets.

Someone you'd hear on TV is a professional and was vetted through a process. The guy doing these videos is doing things on his own.

And yes, I found him equally dry on other videos I watched.
