Hey all! Steve here. I’m late again! Am I consistent or what? Is it just me or did March and April move in super slow motion and then we skilled May, June, and July? How did we get to August? I can tell you how Jada got to August! Let’s keep this family-friendly. Let’s get to the meat and potatoes of why you’re here. You want ME to be the one to tell YOU what to watch on Netflix? Well normally I would call you lazy, but it is absolutely my pleasure. Let’s get to it!
