Even before it was aired people already had given a bad review, so I gave it 10 to even the score. It's a very slow crime/drama and the acting is not what I've been used to see from Showtime, maybe it's me not seeing the actors fit the role, I don't know. For me it would be a 7/10 because if at 7m in I was looking for my phone by the end of it I was interested enough to go back to that 7m and pay a bit more attention. I hope this shows gets better. But I reckon won't appeal to many.


This comes out before Mare of Easttown and you might think much higher of it. Instead it feels like a tribute band.


If you liked Mare of East Town earlier this year then you'll probably like this though it feels more somber in a certain way. Where Mare had the funny family dynamic to lift up the mood in every episode, American Rust is all about the perceived realities of living in a small town in the Rust Belt and people forgotten by the modern world who are just trying to get by. I like shows that portray the world outside the big cities so I'm looking forward to the rest of the season.


If you are having trouble with insomnia... this is the cure right here. It moves so slow it would have to speed up to go backwards! Episode 2 is a complete waste of film (if they still used film). Skip it and you'll miss nothing in the "plot". Got to episode 3 and am completely disinterested in the people or the "story" - I'm done. 0/10

About Me

I am Sophie and this is my website.

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!
