  1. I’ll give Disenchantment a whirl. The trailers look interesting and it will be interesting to see what Matt Groening and the team can turn out.

  2. There don’t seem to be many new TV shows on Netflix in August, sadly. I wonder when season 2 of Glitch will screen here? 🙂

  3. No sign of it yet, Trevor. Similarly, fans of Peaky Blinders are still waiting for S4.

  4. I guess Netflix want to keep us waiting but still they sometimes put shows on without saying anything 🙂
