I agree. :)  Alias this week had some blank sections that confused Myth's
commercial skip code. I was wondering why the dialog wasn't making sense, and
when I hit rewind to try listening closer, it started going back to a scene I
hadn't seen before... (and then it wouldn't let me rewind far enough... which
seemed odd to me... it went back to a certain point, and then wouldn't go any
