I just started my free year trial and I’m underwhelmed so far.  My biggest complaint is that I can’t figure out what’s there.  It would be nice if they listed “Coming Soon” episodes, series, and movies so I had some idea of what and when to watch.  But still, free is free.

I missed the boat on the goodbye submissions. But I wanted to add that Mario hasn’t cut his hair since I joined in 2017, I think he has been cosplaying as Samson for the last 2+ years.
