Unseen narrators need to return to the TV screen (or speakers, whatever)


Just a quick observation:

Some of the best shows have had unseen narrators. I’m not even talking like when that dude from the Home Alone movies played the older Fred Savage.

I’m talking about shows in which some guy you never see tells you what’s going on.

I’ve been watching reruns of The Fugitive, and it’s probably one of the best examples of a genre of drama that’s disappeared. The unseen narrator provides The Fugitive’s backstory, acts as the mind and soul of the protagonist in this program.

I also miss those old Superfriends episodes where the narrator would say EVERY DAMNED THING that happened in the show.

“The Superfriends meet at the Hall of Justice.”

“Wonder Woman buckles the safety restraints in her invisible jet.”

And there are probably tons of actors out there who could use a good narrating job. Peter Coyote did a great job with the Clarinex commercials – he’d be great!

    I want an unseen narrator that follows me around and announces when I do cool shit, which is like all the time.
