Last year, when we watched the first season, it was the bunch of obsessed geeks, watching the television like our lives depended on it.
Canton would let out these gasps of "eek!" as well as pretty much screaming like a girl whenever any plot twist jumped out at us.

ME: "No, Terry, I'm pretty sure that's milk, not sarcasm."
TERRY: "Oh, right. I always get those two mixed up..."
