Not all of them, it seems, or I'm doing ABP wrong.  Didn't get 2 minutes of ads, just 45 seconds, which, as a note to those to code those ads, simply made me close the window.  So, you know, nice job guys.

I got 2 separate cases of 45 second ads. The second one popped in right when Galligan started talking about the dept store scene.Never did see Spielberg geeking out, 'cause I turned it off. 1 1/2  minutes of forced commercial to see 2 minutes of video? I don't thinks so.

The good old days when directors wore a dress shirt and tie while on set.

T.rex: The good old days when directors wore a dress shirt and tie while on set.


The good old days when the "making of" featurette didn't involve a guy standing in front of code monkeys in a bank of computer cubicles.

Also, great quote from Spielburg: "This is a picture about something that... probably could never happen in real life."

Well, they had trouble with the lysine dependency and one of the gremlins ate the lawyer, so it was pretty much shelved until they can find something bigger to clone, or at least slower moving.

I watched the whole video and saw no "geeking out". It was actually pretty boring. Did I miss something?
