    I am excited about the arrival of BGF. I have started watching it on the plane, on my way from Dubai to London but unfortunately I didn’t managed to finish it because we landed. I really want to see the ending 🙂

    haven’t tried Netflix but there are just a lot to watch. How I wished to subscribe but I did not because I can’t maximize is because of the very busy schedule.

    I like Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt. Ellie Kemper makes me laugh always. I am looking forward to the Stranger Things new season.

    Kind of wish I had Netflix. I might just have to add it back in.
