This show is such a gem! Even now, after almost two decades since it originally aired, it still rings true and holds it humor. My husband and I always joke about what in the world aliens would think of us if they ever landed on Earth on a normal day, and I have to admit that this show seems to answer a lot of our musings! =)

An oldie but still very entertaining. Sure some jokes are now not that funny and some references are a bit faded but still makes me laugh. It has very clever moments and some nonsense humor bits that still make laugh. The characters are unique and very well though and it makes you think about society in a intelligent and funny way. And while some episodes are dated in their way of thinking (I'm thinking especially the ones about the "traditional family is better", "being gay is funny" or "computers can't get better") others continue to be true: some things never change. Definitely better than so many newer sitcoms: It's a classic! If you never watched, give it a try, it might surprise you.

I am Sophie and this is my website.

A little about me ๐Ÿ‘‹ I am a marketing student in Paris. I love spending afternoons with friends in a cafe or a park.

But more than anything else, I love watching (.. bingingโ€ฆ) series on my computer on rainy Sundays or any sunny day for that matter ๐Ÿ™ˆ

I must have watched hundreds of shows by now, from romance to science-fiction series. Often I like to go back to a show I enjoyed. But I donโ€™t feel like watching it all over againโ€ฆ

I created this website so myself and others could find the best episodes of our favourite shows. As of today, I have about 1,000 shows on the website with votes and rating coming from fans.

Hopefully, you can join me from your sofa and enjoy some nice TV!
