Hit or Miss

I never thought I would be so angry to see Animal Planet added to my cable system: it replaced my beloved Tech TV. Okay, so Tech TV is kind of lame sometimes, but that damn crocodile guy is starting to get annoying.

Grr…. I hate that.. when they replace channels to “better serve our customers”. Usually, it’s a specialty channel I’m actually interested in, being replaced by something more mainstream and boring. For me, that makes even less worthwhile tv to watch. I don’t need any more reruns of Full House, or Star Trek, or WWF marathons thankyaverymuch.

Animal Planet? Three words: Jeff Corwin Experience.

This guy is seriously scrumptious. Along with the Kratt Brothers, it’s enough to give me a big nature boy fetish.

Well, yes … but he’s also freakin’ inSANE. And married. But mostly it’s the whole insanity thing. Grabbing bats with the bare hands and being surprised when they bite him, letting poisonous snakes drop into his shorts … (Then again, he’s not as insane as the crocodile guy.)

We just had the same sort of thing happen. They pulled Discovery Health, which was at least kind of interesting sometimes, in a thoroughly gross way, for the Travel Channel. About which nobody cares.

Guess what? We hate the cocodile hunter too – and we’re Australians. He must be the most annoying person on tv and yet they keep putting him on. Mummy, make the bad man stop!!

Kriykie! Where did all this animosity come from? I like the crocadile guy! The problem is that the animal channel continues to rehash the same footage day in and day out.

(Did you know that the woman he works with is his wife? Crazy.)

I know the feeling … I have yet to check out the cable offerings here so I’m sure glad I subscribed to the Show Notes for ‘The Screen Savers’.
Could never watch Steve Irwin long enough before I started laughing at him and saying ‘This guy’s insane!’

I’m with Brad: Kratt plus Kratt = Truly Scrumptous. The sum greater than their parts. All that. Ahem. Do it for the planet, Matt! ;.)

True. A glance at my dating resume, though, would tell you how often this seems to be the case where my objets d’affection are concerned.

I’m not seeing the Jeff Corwin Appeal, but yeah, dig those Kratt Brothers. Actually, dig the Croc Hunter, too. I mean, sure, he’s nuts, but it’s an adorable kind of nuts.

We have both techtv and animal planet. Yes, Jeff Corwin is super yummy and his show is great, I also enjoy Animal Precinct and the one about vet school, I think it’s called Vet School Confidential. You can tell they really stretch to come up with programming to fill time slots and re-use successfull ideas (cops and er) but sometimes late a night when nothing else is on its actually very enjoyable. I watch far too much tv, but at least it’s educational.

Hi, Im from Colombia and I think that “cazador de cocodrilos” is a complete gay and also a poser. This is like the worst thing that happened to tv EVER.

crocodile guy is a fag. His wife is ugly and he perturbs animals when forcing them to “appear” in his stupid show while pretends he knows EVERYTHING about ANYTHING. they should like ban that show or something

I’ve watched Jeff Corwin for a while now, before realizing I’ve developed a serious teenage schoolgirl-like crush on him…
My worst fear? He’s a big, nellie bottom!!!

you guys seem very closed minded. what do you know about steve or jeff corwin. they are very experienced in what they do and also respect nature. animal planet helped me realize part of what i want to do in life.

I think that everone who thinks Jeff is gay sucks. Jeff Corwin is the hottest guy in the world and he is soo funny! His shows are soo cool so I dont see how anyone can call him a fag and crap like that because its certainly NOT true! I love Jeff Corwin!

Hey! I love Jeff Corwin! He is such a great looking guy! I dont see how anyone could ever say anything bad about him. The Jeff Corwin Experience is the best show in the whole world and I would never pick another show to watch instead of it! ITs so educational and funny. I got all of my friends watching the show and they all love it too!

I really love Jeff Corwin and his show, The Jeff Corwin Experience! His shows are filled with humer and information, and thats what I love about it! I think that Jeff is the best looking guy in the whole world! I think that people should stop saying that he is a fag and that hes gay and stuff like that because its not nice at all! Even if he was, thats his business. Anyway, I really love him and his show and I hope Animal Planet never stops airing it just like The Disney Channel stopped airing Going Wild With Jeff Corwin. (That was a great show also) I would be so interested in meeting Jeff because I could learn sooo much from him! I love Jeff Corwin!!

I love animals and I thanks steve cause he teach me something very important

Some people on this thread are using the term “gay” as if it were a bad thing. Please get with the program!

to those who monitor this site-
i think it is offensive that you will allow terms like “fag” to be used when small minded people want to descriminate against gays.
but you would not allow “nigger” or “gook” or any NON-PC terms like that.
let’s just see if you even remove those words from this posting.
it is not fair to pander to african-americans and not to gay people.
i don’t like seeing hateful terms describing gays.
what jeff corwin practices with respect to sexuality is NO ONE’S damm business.
if thinking about the fact that he may be gay influences how you feel about his “television persona”,
then you are indeed small minded.
GROW UP!

STEVE IRWIN: uuhhgg!! I dont know how to xpress the way i feel when i see that STUPID show. I dont know if STEVE IRWIN is gay or not, all i know is that hes a POSER and that he PERTURBS animals when FORCING them to appear in his show. A lot of DUMB people thinks that hes amazing cause he does that, but what they dont realize is that animals are free in their enviroment until that dam POSER starts chasin them, grabbing them thinkin that hes not interfering with their behavior, etc. You people should start thinkin more about that… for example, there are lots of other GOOD shows that teach you more about nature and use people who know that grabbing animals that way is a BAD thing for them. STEVE IRWIN is dumb, poser and he thinks he is “the bomb” cause he forces animals to appear next to him… take a time to realize that what i say is true. We study biology and it makes us SICK whenever we see that guy.

I agree with “biology students”.

Biology students? What grade?
I am sure that Irwin is well aware that he is interfering with their lives when he handles them. He has mentioned it on several occasions. The point is, he is educating people about wildlife. The idea of getting the point across to millions of people, particularly young kids, out-ways the horrifying reality of disturbing a snake for a few moments of camera time. He risks his life to RESCUE animals, and yes on occasion the rescue stressful to the animal. Surely, as students of biology, you are aware or have been involved in conservation or study programs that require the tagging of animal, or interfereing with their life to better understand and help their situation? It’s common. His snake handling technique is not the most common, but probably no more or less stressful than holding a snake by the neck. Plus, it’s a bit more showy, because indeed he is a bit of a poser. It’s because that’s what sells. He has some important information to sell, and if he must be a poser to do it, then so be it. He has been a big influence on many children and has shown them to be tough is not to be cruel, hard, and insensitive. Consider that much of what he does is directed towards kids, the future generation. If he is gay, which I doubt, then he would set another postive example.
