    1. We haven't seen such lovely TV character posters in a very long time I must admit.

  2. Looking forward to Barkskins, but isn't it a National Geographic production? Why would it be shown in Hulu? Did they actually finished filming Singapore Grip?

    1. It airs on Nat Geo one day and the next one on Hulu, probably as a choice for those who prefer streaming or don't have cable.

  3. I got a message from Supernatural that they will be resuming their last season in the fall. Maybe they will play catch up on shows so that we at least have something for the season? I hope..

    1. SuperNatural will be the only on CW, methinks, the rest will start January. They've even pushed Outpost to Autumn, because that one is shooting here in Serbia and you can easily bribe our corrupted authorities if you want to shoot soon again LOL

    2. I'm too lazy to cancel at this point. Though I'll for sure be nixing Apple's streaming in the next few months if something doesn't catch my eye there. I'll let my free subscription linger a little closer to the expiration date.

    3. Apple truly is disappointing. SEE was the only series I looked forward to from their offer and that turned out to be a blooming crap if there ever was one. It is beyond me how all them streamers keep their customers loyal.
