NETFLIX AUGUST 2018 SINGAPORE - NEW SHOWS



It is unfortunate that I have not been catching up on my shows on Netflix. Yes, I finished watching the entire GLOW Season 2 in just 2 days, but that is as far as it goes. This is largely due to the recent World Cup, which screws up my airtime. However, a new month means new shows on Netflix. Here is a list of new shows that will be coming in for the month of our nation's 53rd birthday. Without further ado, check out the list below for all your new August shows!
