UI Suggestion

First and foremost, I'm loving the Treehouse platform when compared to other services such as Lynda.com or Codecademy. I think you guys have something great here, going with a hybrid video / quiz format, but there is one thing that has frustrated me to some extent.

When taking a quiz, the only way I've found to review the video is to use the back button or open a separate tab. Wouldn't it be great to simply launch a modal, lightbox, or use jQuery to reveal a window if we get stuck?

One other minor suggestion is on the video pages to unmap the spacebar from restarting the video. I don't know how many times I've done this on accident lol.

Agreed! I run into this all the time.
