    another show giving snakes a bad name

    the show 72 dangerous animals (netflix original) season 1, episode 6

    the first animal on that episode are boa constrictors, and they of course took it to killing a snake keeper and basically make them out to be extremely scary. to the point where i, someone whos not really scared typically, got kinda scared of them. why must shows always do this????

    I watched the show and didn't think they portrayed snakes negatively at all.

    I clicked this expecting something from discovery channel or natgeo, only to find my old nemesis Netflix.

    The show is cringey. The dialog seems written by a prepubescent teen. The boa one especially so. I am always bothered when someone is talking about a specific snake while showing footage of other completely different snakes.

    Re: another show giving snakes a bad name

    I didnt like "Exotic Intruders". It bothered me when that one "Hunter" acted like a Dumb Hillbilly and aloud/portrayed his daughter to act like some kind of sleazy looking Meth Head sex object lol. Im sure she will have her chops busted for years by all the outstanding teenage Boys in their Swamp people town.
    Anyways back to the Dad.. He acted like the way you killed them didnt count, he portrayed throwing a pitchfork at them. Really had me calling the TV some names lol.
