“You can’t skip something you don’t know is coming, including language. And it’s very hard to skip things perfectly using the remote, in my experience. I watch for entertainment. Constantly skipping kills that. Why go to all the effort, when you have VidAngel which easily automates it for you. You can even customize the filters for each movie and episode, if you don’t want to use the defaults.” – Mark C.

A storyline that is still worth paying attention to even when everyone is clothed. *gasp* People finding romance with shirts on and everything.The CIA spy thriller is just as thrilling without profanity.
