Why does the Discovery network force me to resport to bittorrent?


Why Discovery, why are you doing this. It's bad enough how they butchered planet earth with Weaver's robotic voice, but now they're forcing me to listen to Oprah? I personally don't agree with all of her politics and I actually find it quite offensive that the Discovery network would think that I would want to listen to Oprah giving me a lecture over that of David Attenborough. Due to this I will personally protest to any version of the series Life that has been butchered. Due to this, it seems like I will be forced to resort to downloading this series via bittorrent until it's released on blu-ray.

What a shame...

Well as it turns out, while Amazon.com isn't allowing any sales of life, apparently amazon.co.uk has been selling copy's of life for some time now. I just ordered it in blu-ray. Looks like I'll have some better narration than everyone else come this weekend!

I was looking forward to this, At first the commercials never said "Narrated by Oprah" then 4 days ago I see it and hear it, No go for me, I hope if this show is capped and released it is the UK version but since it has been out there for a while I doubt it, I'll just have to wait for the Blu-Ray, I'd rather the show be narrated by Sylvester Stallone or even Arnold Schwarzenegger, Oprah? What the hell were they on when making that decision?
I don't get why they can't use David Attenborough for the US version? What the *beep*

I'm in the U.S. and never knew they aired it here. Much less that Oprah narrated a version. It's a hard-knock life!
