Cheerleading is something I personally have never had much interest in. By no means am I attempting to convey the idea that I don’t care about the sport, because it has similarities to gymnastics which I did when I was younger. Rather, I’ve never been involved in cheerleading myself, therefore it isn’t something I devote … More Have you seen Netflix’s Cheer?

Game of Thrones fans, listen up; there’s a new series in town, and it’s called The Witcher.

Television is something I would argue we’re all relatively opinionated about. What we enjoy in a series may not be what someone else does, making the topic a rather subjective one.
