    Oh, it's not a roaring grizzly bear who quickly approaches me, it's probably a harmless octopus which just mimics a bear.

    +1 for the subject matter. -2 for the pop music. This is needless, it obscures your narration, making it all the harder to understand your words, and it is intensely annoying.

      Some people like it, some people hate it. For now we are still developing the new show, so I'd expect it to constantly change. I like the techy, science fiction vibe of Second Nature, so we may keep on pursuing that path.
