    Bad delivery? Bad script? Narration is one of those things, if it's good then you shouldn't notice that it is there at all.

      Mark Cousins has a very distinctive delivery, a strong Northern Irish accent with an almost affected/forced familiarity about it, it doesn't sound completely natural or conversational which I assume was the intention. I can see what Orpheum is getting at.

        Cousins is extremely knowledgeable , but his delivery is idiosyncratic and(imho) very difficult to listen to. I usually watch his stuff with the best of intentions, but eventually have to give up.
