July 2020 Wrap Up

It was a great month for TV Shows I watched so many that I can’t stop raving to people about which is such a fantastic feeling to introduce to someone something new to watch or read. I think my favourite would Warrior because it is an incredible story and one that is really relevant to today’s society and Sharp Objects which was just a spine chilling and creepy but incredible show to watch. I would really like to see a season two to see what happens after that ending. In terms of films Buffaloed was the best just an great  performance from Zoey Deutsch and original story. The one comic I read Harrow County Volume 2 was keeping it in that creepy and harrowing month which was a great read. Then reading Strange but True topped it off beautifully with the mysterious and factual.

So here is the list:
