As expected, the new season is just not the same without Sean Astin's narration. I have always liked Stockard Channing as an actress, but her narration did not have the same heart. It was Sean who made us really care about and understand these animals. We lived their journey through his eyes and heart and voice.
So, we have yet another idiotic decision made by the MBA's who are destroying the entertaining industry. Leave the creative decisions to the creative people please.
