    Old school tube TVs had 4 screws on a metal plate used to attach the copper wire of a bunny ear antenna. The more you know.

    When every comment is about the buttons, you know that's going to be brilliant. Then you see the buttons and all of a sudden, you make a comment about the buttons. I can't help myself.

    I’m an artist...yes it is that much harder to do five fingers...especially with animation. And sometimes it doesn’t fit character style if the hands are too realistic. BTW loooove your videos🤘🏽

    CinemaSins's favourite band is...Fuck Buttons*!

    *An actual band, and they're quite good. No reason for this stupid joke comment at all, I just quite like Fuck Buttons and wanted an excuse to say so.

    It amuses me that the video starts, by him just failing to understand what dormers are and that they are frequently in attic spaces. Has he not seen this over and over, while traveling down a road?

    Stewie was saying "Laugh and cry" all these years? I thought he was saying "Death and crime." Given Stewie's personality on s1, which line seems more likely?

    I GREATLY misheard the theme song's lyrics when I was younger... I used to think Stewie's part was 'theft and crime,' and I also used to think 'on which we used to rely' was 'well, here's the usual why.'

    Fun fact: Buttons was the name my ex girlfriend gave me and now I hate it and I absolutely love CinemaSins (sorry TVSins) for explaining WHY buttons is a shitty thing!

    The button part was probably the funniest thing you've done, and you gave Trump 1 billion sins, so that is a feat.
    What was setting my OCD off was that the buttons were never in the center of the shirt where buttons would go, because it connects the two parts of the shirt together, not off to one side.

    I cant take these things seriously knowing how much is explained late into the shows XD like peter affording the house because
    1. They're renting it
    2. 70% of the structure is apparently cockroaches (a joke when brian got sprayed by a skunk)
    3. The house is falling apart to the point where a roof beam actually fell down and crushed/pinned meg to the floor.
    These things are funny but these sins are described as though they're from the view of someone randomly jumping into a show for no reason XD
