William Jack Thomas ,

Great Show, very eye opening.

Jumped while they were talking about how the blind "watch" films. And Boy did I learn a thing or two I didn't ever in my life consider.
Not only that, an added bonus at the end enlightened me on the fact that perhaps blind people have things we should consider at the dinner table that I would have never given a second thought to. So ask your blind friend what's okay at dinner first.
Great show. Awesome way to understand what... ehmm. Our eyes won't show us.
