Interesting Stuff, Redundant Commentary, Not enough CATS
30 December 2013 | by bdbarakSee all my reviews

I found this show to be very interesting. However, the host is quite repetitive, and I would have liked to see more EXPERT commentary. He often spouts off vague explanations and seems unsure if we are looking at a cemetery/hippodrome tunnel/ royal courtyard/ lavatory. you get the idea. I also have a penchant for dark spaces so I really feel at home watching this show. However I feel like they could have spoken more about the creatures that live down there, since they are obviously not abandoned. If you pause at 3:40 in the Instanbul video you will see traces of scat. I would have enjoyed it if the narrator had identified the scat and given more insight into what animals live down there (cats).

Overall, the imagery makes the show interesting enough to keep me watching. would bump up rating to 8 with more cats.

7.5/10
