    Oh, sweet memory of Buster Cat! I loved the Rosie Project. Outlander–I don’t recommend it on audio for your morning rush hour commute. I’m sure the Orkin Guy I nearly swerved into when a scene made spit my drink all over the windshield can explain why…..

      aha I see that post now- I missed it when I was making the post- thanks.

      By the way, when scoring tv shows how would I score Gilmore girls- watching it on netflix the episodes are 40-45 minutes each- so is that as a 30 minute show, or a 60 minute show because if it was on tv with adds it would have been 60 minutes… ?

        Sorry I’m delayed on this, as always! haha. We consider it like “regular TV” times. So a thirty minute show without commercials is a 20ish minute show on Netflix, so you can do the 30 minute one. Same goes for 60 minutes – even if it’s 45ish minutes on Netflix.
