    Fast Five

Watchmen episode is great

Arnie and Jakob are great. Arnie especially I felt made great points all the way. Surprisingly Stuart I couldn’t stand for hating on every little thing. I get it isn’t great and there are huge problems but he seemed to want to contradict everything just for the sake of contradicting. What I didn’t like about Arnie in the back to the future episode.
