TV / 22/09/2020 Anticipated Autumn Arrivals

His Dark Materials: Season 2 I don’t watch a lot of television. I have certain shows I adore and very few I actively keep up with and religiously watch, so anticipating a premiere is almost unheard of for me. The unbearable wait until November for the second season of ‘His Dark Materials’ therefore shows perfectly...

I have two go-tos when it comes to shows cancelled too soon: American Vandal – one of the best comedies of recent years and another victim of Netflix’s cynical “two seasons, then done” financial strategy – and Forever.
