"Buzz-Buzz-Buzz!"

And - Was the "Bee People" a real honey-of-a-documentary?

Well - Sort of..... I mean - What I learned from this presentation was that we humans certainly do owe a helluva lot to bees when it comes to the whole process of pollination - 'Cause the bees are so good at doing it.

But, unfortunately, man's pesticides and polluting ways are seriously beginning to hamper what the bees do best and they, of course, are dying off at an alarming rate as a result of this.

Anyway - I did find that at 1 hour and 40 minutes - This program had a tendency to lag at times and its narrator/host, Greg McMahon did come across as being somewhat annoying - But, for the most part - "Bee People" was well-worth a view.

To bee, or not to bee?.... Is that the question?

Sorry to have to say this - But - For me, "Bee People" was not the "honey-of-a-documentary" that I was expecting it to bee... I mean, be.... No. It wasn't.

With a title like "Bee People" - I should have guessed that the focus of this presentation was gonna be on the "people" - And, not on the "bee". 'Cause that's exactly what happened here.

When it came to Bee People's narrator/host, Gregg McMahan - I found that he was (much to my growing annoyance) in my face more often than I would have liked him to bee... I mean, be.

If you ask me - I'd say that McMahan was a seriously unhinged dude, indeed. I mean, perhaps this guy had been stung in the head, far too often, by so many bees that he now believed himself to be "King of the Bees", or something equally off-the-wall like that. I just don't know.

Anyway - I do fully realize that this production was intended as a means to raise the viewer's awareness to the great service that bees are doing for all of us humans on this earth, as well as to the fact that the very existence of these tiny, busy creatures is now being threatened, big-time..... And, yes - For that information, I do thank the producers of this documentary greatly.

I gave this four stars because the plight of bees needs to be made more aware to the general public. The specialized knowledge that has been shared in this doc probably could have been done a lot better with a well funded film production. Nevertheless these beekeepers provided a public service by revealing a bit about their art.
