I have a question regarding the following sentence.

"I aimed my remarks at Susan, but she didn't seem to notice."

I thought you should add "that" or "it" at the end of the sentence, which apparently is not necessary.

The word "notice" in the sentence seems to correspond to the preceding clause, and therefore I think should be a modifier. However, it seems to act as an intransitive verb which kind of puzzles me.

The question is, how could you know when to use an intransitive verb and not?

For example, is the following sentence I created myself also possible?

"I bought a DVD yesterday, and I watched already."

Any advice will be much appreciated.
