My girlfriend and I like it so far. We'll keep watching and will leave another review once we're done

This episode was very interesting! I wasn't sure if I would like the course or not based on the first half; but then it started getting very interesting during the Aunt May story (which brought me to tears) and I decided I will definitely continue with this course. I'm hoping this course will aide my storytelling abilities during music performance (when I do gigs) and as I continue to write short musicals. Thanks for a good start to a hopefully great series!
