henry cavill reads the witcher

As I write this, it’s Friday, it’s late in the day, and we’re all ready for the weekend to get here.

This week we go retro with our comedy, write a few movie reviews, revisit what happened in 2016 to this nation, see what Robert Downey Jr. is up to, and find our newest guilty pleasure.
