In this 135-minute wildlife documentary the viewer is taken on an extensive nature tour to different exotic locations around the planet (such as Central Africa and South America) where they are shown some really fascinating "creepy crawlers" (such as spiders, beetles, and centipedes).

I have to say that seeing these amazing critters was really quite interesting. Indeed.

But, unfortunately, I found that this program's irritating host, Dominic Monaghan was present in front of the camera far too often for my liking.

IMO - There's nothing worse than watching a nature/wildlife documentary, such as "Wild Things", where its host (such as comedian-wannabe, Dominic Monaghan) seems to think that he's more interesting and important than is the program's subject. And, so, he's in the viewer's face for close to 90% of the presentation's running time.

Yes. I will admit that "Wild Things" did contain some very fascinating moments (when Monaghan decided to step away from being right in front of the camera) viewing the incredible-looking spiders, and reptiles, and insects in their natural environment.

But, I just wish (like you wouldn't believe) that there had been some feasible way to have edited irksome, little Dominic right out of the picture. (Ho-hum!)

Dominic Monaghan certainly has a radical enthusiastic personality when it comes to these dangerous types of species; much like the popular Crocodile Hunter, Steve Irwin!

Actor Dominic Monaghan is a different kind of host for this sort of thing, but he brings an enthusiasm for critters that would probably scare more than a few people. He also seems to know how to handle these creatures. The problem with these documentaries is the camera work- it becomes distracting at times. Whoever's doing the camera work isn't doing their job, and the documentaries suffer accordingly.

Very good exciting series! Dominic Monaghan is very a wonderful and sometimes funny host. Would recommend it.
