Abbott Elementary

ABC 2021

In this workplace comedy, a group of dedicated, passionate teachers — and a slightly tone-deaf principal — are brought together in a Philadelphia public school where, despite the odds stacked against them, they are determined to help their students succeed in life. Though these incredible public servants may be outnumbered and underfunded, they love what they do — even if they don’t love the school district’s less-than-stellar attitude toward educating children.

So far this show has been SO cute! It gives office vibes for sure. I enjoy it so far and I look forward to the next episodes!


Very cute show! The cast is amazing. Actually very funny.


i am deeply in love with this show.


This is a fairly straightforward work mockumentary, with a will-they-wont-they romance, but the cast, writing and general cuteness makes it stand out. They really nail the characters and interactions from the very first moments in the first episode. Can't wait to see how this develops.


I guess I'm too factual. Why write an email to complain, when everything is being recorded by a TV crew? No one would say the things they are saying in front of a TV crew. I just couldn't deal with the concept. Had to turn it off.


i am inlove with this show it's so incredibly funny

A little about me 👋 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 (.. binging…) series on my computer on rainy Sundays or any sunny day for that matter 🙈

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 don’t feel like watching it all over again…

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!
