  • We dropped cable TV a couple of years ago. I might have to shell out the bucks to stream it from Amazon. If I knew it was coming to Blu-ray I would wait and buy it.

    • Sorry, I’m talking about Gravity Falls. We saw the first season but it was one of the shows we had to let go to save an extra $40 per month.

  • Your use of “in regards” in a couple places should read as “with regard to” or “regarding”….unless, maybe you are wishing them well or condolences??
