    You can watch it here:

    I don't get it.

    At least give it a rating.

    But I don't get it.

    Was it good?


    Would you recommend it?

    I don't know.

    How does that work?

    I don't know.



    Just give it 2 1/2 or something.

    I can't.


    Because it's good.

    Then what's the issue?

    I don't know.

    For fuck's sake.

    I don't understand it. It confused me.

    Just your plebian mind.

    Fuck you.

    Fuck you.…
