By: Alyssa and DRWHO42

As we wind down from the elation of SDCC and get back to our regular programming we will find a few gems this week. The cult phenom Sharknado returns with its fourth entry in the franchise – The Fourth Awakens. This week also marks the first season finale of Preacher and the return of Ghost Hunters. We are also hearing great feedback about Stranger Things on Netflix and it we be added to our watch list.

New: Sharknado, Ghost Hunters, Paranormal Witness
On-going: Mr. Robot, Outcast, & Preacher
Binge: Firing up the Netflix!

Alyssa’s picks:
New/Returning: Ripper Street
