9 days into the beautiful month of October and definitely the last quarter of the year.
Normally for the movies and series lovers, this is the time when we start getting dope releases and due to Covid-19 we can only hope we won't suffer.
This month started out on a high note as two Kenyan films, 'Disconnect' and 'Sincerely Daisy' made it into Netflix. What a win!
This Is Us is set to return, on October 27th and we cannot be any happier.
As always, I have lined up series and movies that you should be binge watching this month.
