Switching things up a bit…

So, it turns out, there are no new films coming out in the cinemas this week. You would think that’s not really possible, and that there’s just always something new to watch, but apparently that is not the case. I feel like I became an adult all over again. But fret not, for you can still get your weekly fix of films and TV shows – just follow this staying-in-streaming guide (all this talk of rain) and you’ll be good to go.
