2. I have watched it.
As someone who often has difficulty sleeping, the "On Demand" feature of my cable service gets a lot of use unless PBS is airing something of interest at the same time.\.

I like Lorre, who was involved with Dharma and Greg and my current favorite, Big Bang Theory.

Two and a Half Men was my least favorite of his shows, though, by a lot.

And, I always worried about Angus Jones, being around stuff a nine year old should not have been allowed to watch, much less star in. It seemed unconscionable to me.

Apparently, his parents always sent him to Christian schools, even though they did not attend church, say grace at home or engage in anything religious.

And now his mother is saying she is worried about the church exploiting him. (Duh.)

As he tells his story on the first video (I have not watched the second yet), he says that, from Christian school, he got the Bible stories and Bible verses, but nothing beyond that.

I don't think that is true because he also says that he was discussing possible business ventures with a friend and they were saying how God would be the origin of them. And this was immediately before his "come to God" moment.

What he said, with no regard for the jobs of everyone on that show, tells me he still doesn't get much about religion. But, he is only 19. I'll cut him some slack.
