    Okay, my dudes, it’s time to come out of retirement.

    Grammar Class
    With @Old Thunder

    “The” chance. I would only get THE chance. “To chance” means “to risk”. “We knew the bridge was unsafe, but we decided to chance it.” You’re using chance as a noun here, not a verb, so you need the article “the” with it, instead of the particle “to”, which, in the English language, serves as a marker for a verb used as an infinitive.

    This is redundant. Drop one and keep the other; you needn’t include both of them.
    “I would see it if I could.”
    “I would love to see it, but that isn’t possible for me at present.”

    This isn’t a grammatical error, but does this mean you’ll watch a bunch of clips since you can’t see the whole thing? Wouldn’t that spoil the entire enterprise? You do you, I guess. ‘Twould be more beneficial to watch it online, eh?

    Anyway, follow these simple guide points and soon you’ll be speaking English like a pro.

    I had planned on seeing it through a local TV station long before joining this discussion.

    I did not intend on typing "to chance" in my previous message (I would correct it if I could). It was most likely a typographical error (I would had considered that possibility if I were in your position).

    As for the end to my previous message, I was referencing the times in which I had only seen clips of the movie.

    In case this message was made in reference to this discussion, I would say that it had become a more open one.

    Instead of Mister Rogers it's become School House Rock.

    Come on, man. You’ll never be my star pupil if you don’t at least try to make some grammatical sense.

    For FroggyFool and gavry3's benefit, it seems that Mario500's post that you're quoting in your replies from which your confusion stems is related to the other posts above between Mario500 and OldThunder's grammar class. Hope this helps clear things up.

    Were you referencing the documentary that was being discussed here earlier?

    No. I'm talking about the one hosted by Michael Keaton called It's You I Like.
