Welcome to the Weekend Watch. Where we try to point you towards the best ways to spend your viewing time (or, at least, steer you clear of the garbage).
How To Train Your Dragon: The Hidden World
Loren: I was surprised at how much I liked the first one but haven’t really followed up on any of the subsequent stuff. This does look pretty good though. It might be a little sad when the inevitable finale roles around but hey that’s life.
