Usually I collect a weeks worth of interesting shows, astrological events, and dates in history to get thought the work week. However, I am on vacation for part of this week thanks to the Forth of July weekend, and like many holiday weekends, options for new entertainment are a little thin. Instead opportunities to catch up on an older show or movie series abound. Below are my recommendations- I’ll be back next week with a full schedule of fresh entertainment.
