I have yet to check out the other language-related videos in the series.

Follows from this one:
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=a6DlnQNDoHE

in which he indicates there will be a later video covering the use of apostrophes to form plurals.

EDIT: and this one

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mf0-lNqzZT8

in which he rather glibly indicates that in the UK, Ireland, India, Australia, NZ, and RSA, no distinction is made between “which” and “that”. This is news to me.

He does the over-simplified that/ which thing.

It disappointed me - it was over-simplified, condescending and I didn’t learn anything new.
