Stream and chill?
We at the Valkyries HQ know how stressful life can be, work is tough, the state of the world is tough, the weather is crap. It’s all a bit of a mess, but at least we’ve got so many streaming services available we couldn’t possibly ever be without something to watch! If you are anything like me, you’ll spend longer trying to find something to watch then actually watching anything, and then you just end up watching Brooklyn 99 or another Blue Planet documentary again. BUT no more!
Buckle up babies, we’ve got the highlights from Shudder and Netflix for this coming March! Feast your eyes on these and stream till you can’t stream any more!
