They said it couldn't be done, but the Discovery channel proved everyone wrong. The Discovery channel did the impossible: they made dinosaur documentaries tedious. These documentaries are so tedious and repetitive that if you cut out the repetition, you would have an acceptable 22-min TV show.

Couldn't they just have the paleontologists talk for more than three seconds at a clip? Those guys are interesting, and better narrators than the narrator.
