Nope, not getting turned off by the show. Robert is 16 and not a professional actor. I don't find him off-putting at all. I suspect he feels like he has to fill his dad's shoes (who was also more than a little over the top), but one of the things I like about this show is that they aren't actors. Sometimes they are awkward, but I think of them as earnest people who are trying to share their love for animals and their concern for the future of said animals with the public, raise awareness (and money), and for the most part I find them almost painfully sincere.
