Quick note to my readers of some new and returning series in 2016 in the UK on TV and Netflix.

Grimm- Netflix.
So I’m on Series Five now of Grimm.  Great Stuff.  I guess I will have to stop watching it soon as there are only six episodes.  Then I will have to wait a whole week to find out what happens next.  Noooo..

Update on Grimm series Five.

“Eve Of Destruction”.
