Doctor Strange

My pick of the month is the second season of Sense8. Created by the Wachowski Sisters, this series explores eight strangers from around the globe who suddenly become “sensates”; humans who are linked to each other physically and emotionally. The series explores topics such as identity, gender, and sexuality freely and openly, and it’s certainly worth watching. This month also has an outpouring of comedy specials from Sarah Silverman to Tracy Morgan to Norm Macdonald. We also have shows like the fifth season of House of Cards, the eighth season of Royal Pains, the second season of Masters of None, and the inaugural season of Queen of the South. We also have a double feature from the Gloriously British Benedict Cumberbatch (patent pending) with both the fourth season of Sherlock and Marvel’s Doctor Strange. Also, on the movie front, we have Inglorious Basterds, Masterminds, Beyond the Gates, and Chocolat, to name a few.

That’s all I’ve got for this month. Got any questions or comments? Did I miss something you wanted to discuss? Feel free to hit me up in the comments section below.

Until next time…
