Strange Events: June 26th – July 2nd

Every week I look for new shows, movies, and documentaries to enjoy after work during the week. I try to narrow it down from the high volume of entertainment available to a range of things with a strange twist to them. I also try to keep an eye out for astronomical events, and interesting dates in history. Enjoy, and let me know what you watch!

  1. Great list! You should add a Harry Potter movie or 7 because the first book came out 20 years ago today and it’s probably Harry Potter Central on TV, lol.
    I really need to watch Broadchurch!
