he he he, JP.
A great deal of his show and other shows is set up. I remember one in particular when he came to a log and said "This the perfect habibat for a little Death Adder..... OH LOOK, here's one now" lol. The setup may not be as bad as paople think. IT may be a matter of finding it and then doing commentary or show a chase (like when he tripped on a barbed wire fence while sprinting and his camera guy was already on the other side).
I will not get into other opinions about Steve at this time. Because I could write a book on the problems I have with him and a paragraph on what i like. For all the Irwin fans, try doing alot of Educational Programs, you will feel one aspect of my Irwin pain.
I planted some bird seed. A bird came up. Now I don't know what to feed it.
