Winter 2021 – Week 7


A day late and little less complete than I hoped because my wife and I spent good part of yesterday dealing with the aftermath of an overflowing washing machine… But I decided with all these shows, I didn’t really want to delay it an entire week.

Hit the jump, and let’s dive in!

Hit the jump, and let’s see what happened this week!

Just a few quick impressions of the shows I’ve seen so far… And I swear it’s completely happenstance that Part 2 is basically sequels…

It’s not many shows, but they’re all good, so hit the jump and let’s chat!

A slightly clever pun – Looking forward to Winter 2021 Part 2 – Sequels

So, hit the jump and let’s start!
