It takes me 5 minutes to read the dates of Amazon Prime movies which show a current date but are from decades ago; 3-minutes to stop it at the necessary screen, and 2-minutes to decipher the roman numerals. This just to find out how old the actress with the over ripe melons was at the time.

It’s all Greek to me!
