He may be very clever. He just comes across sOmetimes as a bit daft and not very eloquent. His commentary can be a bit low level as if talking to kids. This series has a narrator, quite like it.

Can't knock him though, programme's are good... But where's Reuben!!

I think Monty was suited to his "fly-on-the-wall" thing.
He's been asked to slow his 'natural' chat for the show because it scans.
It doesn't work.
Monty's better at schpieling at his own pace.
Brilliant footage, great content, fantastic footage, surreal content.
Let Monty be Monty.
Monty, just crap on about what you want to crap on about.
Show would be better for Monty being Monty.

was going to disagree then saw the bit where he jumped in to demonstrate cold shock!
Still, excuse to show a bit of flesh afterwards :-)

Well, he's plainly not a "muppet", but may be instructed by "muppets". Production crews are all c**ts, "muppets" if you will.
I reckon that once he watches the production he will polarize.

I didn't really mean muppet in a nasty way. He's just a bit soft and socially unskilled. A bit simple and I think mainly, boring.

Don't get me wrong, he seems a nice guy and is doing good stuff that i find v interesting but he'd do my head in after an hours conversation on a boat!

He's not exactly mr charisma!!
