    Should there be a comma after "I"? Is "both" necessary in this case?

    Thanks a lot!

    A comma after "I" would be incorrect.

    "Both" is not necessary; it provides emphasis, that's all.

    Definitely not a comma. And 'both' is not necessary, but emphatic. If we liked it, I might be saying that I liked it and I think Miguel did too. If we both liked it, then I know I liked it and he liked it - and I can be sure about both of us.

    Did you read the other responses, kubi? Both people answered that question.
