‘Floor is Lava: Season 2’ Review (Netflix)

by Rhys Payne

It’s crazy to think that this time last year we were going through one of the toughest periods of time in human history! We spent just under two years being forced to stay at home and being told that it was actually illegal to see more than one other household. Nightclubs, cinemas, restaurants etc., were […]
