Binge | Mayans MC | Daredevil | Jessica Jones

It's 'Short Days/Early Nights' season which means binge-watching.I literally just finished watching the first season of Mayans MC and I loved it.

And that last moment of the season finale.I also finally finished the second season of Jessica...

They performed Beyonce's song Daddy Lessons and it was a thing of beauty.Beyonce, as always, was ***Flawless. The Dixie Chicks were also wonderful.
