  1. If only I could watch this, but as my subscription has passed and there is now no way to renew, purchase a new subscription or continue I now cannot see any Premium content. Come on guys, I literally want to give you my money to watch stuff!

  2. Same here. Long time subscriber, but my subscription has recently expired, and there’s no way to renew it.

    / please do something!

  3. I just joined tested but for the life of me can’t figure out how to subscribe to the premium content. Please help me give you my money.

  4. Man! Iritating problem coming up. How do you light up a tiny hole to see whats inside without obstructing wives with the lighthouse itself. Got something stuck in my 3,5mm jack on the phone but cant find a way to see whats going on. Have seen desk lights with a circular “led kind of thing” with a magnifier you can look through, but i don´t have that at hand. So how?

  5. Star Trek had many different ensignias for each ship in Star Fleet. The members of the crew each wore thier ship’s ensignia on the front of the uniform. But in the new movies and all following series they had seemed to forget that aspect of the show….I liked the fact each ship was different. Now the entire fleet seems to be Enterprise crew members.
    My question to you is have you ever discovered a potential error and caught it before it hit the big screen. Like when working on Star Wars and preventing them from putting cup holders on R2D2 or something??
