City Phlegmy

On the A&E network, there is a show called City Confidential, which details a crime in a particular city and discusses the bearing the setting of the crime had on both the crime and its aftermath. I find this an intriguing premise, but I cannot watch the show because the voice of the narrator is incredibly phlegmy in every sense of the word.

1. Apathy demonstrated by an absence of emotional reactions.
2. Expectorated matter; saliva mixed with discharges from the respiratory passages; in ancient and medieval physiology it was believed to cause sluggishness
3. Inactivity; showing an unusual lack of energy.
