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!
