I'm sure there is valuable content on this video, but the "Frisby" voice / character makes it unwatchable. I like egghead because it doesn't waste my time. What's this?

Agreed, I made it like 10 seconds in and couldn't take it anymore :( The talking is WAY too fast to try and comprehend what is being said. And, it's frankly really annoying.

I really wanted to watch this, but it sounds too fast.

I was very excited to learn about functional programming when I got the e-mail. But the content and voice is so bad and mumbled that it's very hard to comprehend. Also, I don't understand what's the context of a bear and two bunnies. Please, Please make this understandable.

I can kind of almost watch this if i change playback speed to .8

This is exhausting. It is very difficult to stay concentrated on the topic with that high pitched voice (and I used actually the minimum speed available 0.8) - I had to give up at the 2nd sequence for a break.
Still trying to figure out what's the motivation behind that nonsense.

Unwatchable. Very disappointing.

I agree that it was unexpected, but after watching for awhile, I didn't mind it as much. In fact, I like the Q+A part at the end. I appreciate that the author is experimenting with a different approach.

If you can go past the strange voices, the content of this course is gold! Take this first video, for example: it's genius!

I'm also disappointed by this release :( This was one of the reasons I bought the holiday subscription and I can hardly watch it with that high pitched voice. It also seems like the videos start out of no where with no context as if it's missing a video.

--EDIT: I went ahead and watched the videos - the content is great albeit distracting at parts. Admittedly my initial reaction may have been too soon.

I don't usually comment, but just to put it out there in contrast to some negative reviews:
I actually enjoyed the video. The style is interesting and the content is easy to consume. Thank you!

Been waiting for this for sooo long it seems.
Thanks so much for getting these out, binge watched the first half and I gotta say, this is a wonderful continuation of the Professor Frisby series!!
So much good information in there, I would have probably finished in one day, but had to open up node and try this magic out for myself!!

The imperative to declarative refactorings are my absolute favs.

Great content but the idea with unnatural, fast, high pitched voice is just terrible :(

I thought the computer has gone crazy, then I saw the other coments :) Weird experience, good content.

Agreed, voice is a little distracting but I got used to it. The conversational style is actually kind of nice

I'd like to know his workflow for this exercise for when i'm on just my laptop without screens. Obviously VIM, possibly TMUX... or some weirdness with VIM i don't know... Node, likely with autocompile script on save?

Great Content, no issue with the style

I found the sped up voice difficult to understand; by using the speed control on the bottom left and turning to the slowest speed: 0.8 it was possible to follow what was being said.

HEY, QUICK QUESTION!
