Agree to Disagree: Netflix Subtitles or Nah?

Proof that Nyge has watched Netflix with subtitles

Fun Adult ISH fact: Merk and Nyge have only met twice in real life and this “Agree to Disagree” segment was recorded on the first day of meeting each other. Nyge says subtitles ruin the watching experience. Merk believes subtitles are your best friend, especially when watching scary movies alone… on the toilet.
