Screening on Saturday 9th December 2017


Below is the program for the evening of Saturday December 9th, 2017.

This is the last regular screening of 2017. The week after will be the End of Year Marathon full of requested stuff. Then we take a break and return in January 2018, with a lot of new regular series.
In order to make room for the new series, we will have to have some double episodes tonight to finish off some current series, and leave some of the continuing series at a good pause point.
Meanwhile, we are going to have one last survey to help determine what our dear JAFWAites most want to see in the new 2018 program layout.
