TVEnthusiast Newsletter 004 – March 12th, 2018

Soon, TVEnthusiast will be launching a weekly newsletter filled with easily digestible content ranging from episode impressions to news to a schedule of upcoming shows.  Though it is not yet an actual newsletter, nor does it have a true name yet, we are experimenting with it as a weekly article that will eventually  turn into a newsletter.

Without further ado, here is the second issue of our yet to be titled newsletter.
