  1. I don’t DVR, but I love it that commercials aren’t included on DVD’s of the TV shows I watch.

    1. I don’t have the patience to wait for the season DVDs. You’re stronger than me!

  2. I love the soap in the mouth shot. One of my teachers in elementary school washed folks’ mouths out with soap when they said naughty words. ICKY!
