1. Either one would be dandy!

I like both of their narrative voices very much.

There is only one narrator I can't stand listening to. She narrated some shows on Unsolved History that I wanted to watch, but I just couldn't do it. Her cadence is sing-songy, and she often accentuates the wrong syllables in words.

2. We've had this discussion here half a dozen times in the last decade.

My answer remains unchanged. I want Lauren Bacall.

5. Jeremy Irons ...

... then it would sound like a deliciously evil Poe-esque novel, even if it was the phone book.

8. Well pardon me, I don't recall ever participating before ...

.... and I've been around a long time.

Please reserve your passive-aggressive snark for the person upthread who apparently offended you.
Or, request the thread be locked.


Jesus H Christ on a cracker anyway.

13. I think he's just joking with you

based on an upthread interaction and the fact that he started the thread.

7. It depends on the subject matter.

For all things science, I prefer Mr. Attebourogh. I would rather listen to Morgan Freeman when it comes to subjects like history.

9. Who is David Attenbourough?

Oh wait, just googled it.

I must admit I like Leslie Nielsen(he was in a lot of National Geographic presentations for a while) as well as James Earl Jones.

Stating that, I'd go for Morgan Freeman just because he's the one I know.
