Added Ozark to the current streaming series watches. Also caught up enough to pass on a few of the latest summer additions, The Guest Book, What Would Diplo Do?, Loaded, Midnight Texas, Hooten and the Lady, Somewhere Between, Will, Salvation, I’m Sorry, Tales, The Mist, and Still Star Crossed, and maybe I’ll check one more of Manhunt (I also meant to check out another Snowfall but somehow never recorded it).
