The Pre-Weekend Recap: November 15, 2013

Behold, The Pre-Weekend Recap rises from the mist once again! It’s starting to get cold outside, the sun’s going down incredibly fast, and jumping in the leaves loses its novelty after a few minutes. Instead of going outside, why not stay in and sit down with some fantastic One of Us content over the weekend?

Tell you what, I’ll even give you a few suggestions of which of this week’s features to start with, free of charge. I’m too nice for my own good sometimes.
