Thank you for rectifying the regime and relieving the distress of the people. I was ready to depose KBC28.tv for leaving out the English subtitles and for turning a blind eye to our suffering. I was prepared to take put on my armor and install you as the new Wang Saum Pear (spelling probably incorrect) but after seeing you bore no personal ambitions or seek to take over the world, that your intent is honorable, just to relieve the suffering of the people, I agree with the prior post to a make you a Merit Subject. The people were hungry after episode 140 and through you, we were able to ride the back of a tiger. I feel your play by play was as if we gained an army of thousands, who have come to the rescue. I swear eternal loyalty to your cause. Should KBC.Tv turn it's back on it's subjects again you will not go down in history as a villainous subject and I implore all, deign to see, you bare no treasonous intent. Thank you, your grace is immeasurable.

Thank you, VIB; that was an extremely 'good look.' You deserve a house full of flowers, chocolate, ice cream, Snapple, something!!
It was quite an exercise trying to understand the action in AOW w/o subs when I know about a micron's worth of Korean language, apart from the phrases meaning "pardon" and "very well" and maybe two or three others. I was banking on the idea that all humans share basic human emotions and respond similarly enough to things. I was suprised that I wasn't so far off about what was going on in about 4% of the ep. As far as the rest, well..., I should add a sports car to the list above for VIB. I was further off than Christopher Columbus.
Speaking of Columbus, I really appreciate VIB's efforts and this site because I know too well of having one's history attempted to be buried and forgotten. I remembed too much Columbus, too much Europe, quite frankly, and too much slavery being the extent of my displaced people's cultural heritage--oh yeah, and the fact that people of the African continent were savages (thanks, Hollywood, among others) who deserved to be enslaved. Needless to say, thank God, I know much better, although the damage has been done to a lot of folk who have yet to get that negativity out and off of their psyche. So, even as a child, I would watch stuff about the rest of the world (read--non-European) when I could, especially the subtitled historical dramas. I'd peep the Japanese series on Nippon network(something like that) on Saturday nights about Tokugawa Ieyasu, Takeda Shingen, Date Yoshimune, I think, and whatever else I found subtitles on to watch. Everybody has a history-- good, bad and ugly--so learning what I can about each other's history just might cut out the needless, ignorance-based ish that builds barriers that block good vibes instead of allowing them to spread.
So when I see the love that's spread around here, I feel encouraged. That's why VIB deserves Elmer Fudd treatment--a mansion and a yacht!! No Looney Toons fans here? Anyhow, thanks again. I keep telling y'all that this site is the flyest--but y'all really don't hear me, though!

Well, tonight is Hawaii's turn for episode 140. Thanks (again) to VIB's great summary I am not worried, but it would be nice to see subtitles 'cause that would mean that our station cared enough about the AOW Hawaii viewers to do something about the problem. We shall see in about 2.5 hours...
