I used to post a weekly update on my viewing habits, which I called ‘The Week That Was’. However, as a busy father to two young children this weekly tempo was proving a little too ambitious, therefore I have taken the lead from some other fellow bloggers and reverted to a monthly schedule instead.

Highlights:                            What has stood out for me this month.

Cinema Screenings:            First time watches I have seen in the cinema.

TV Shows:                              Any TV Shows I am currently deep into.

Score Sheet:                          The tallies for the year, so far.

So without further ado, here is how June shook down. (more…)
