This is a weird show, I mean REALLY weird, but -I think- in a good way. It's more drama than comedy, at least the first episode is and it looks like it will stay that way. There are funny moments and moments that are so tragic they end up being funny, but the show focuses more on the tragic part the way I see it The acting is really good though, and I believe people will like the show even if it isn't what they expected.

this show ìs really depressing. I dont know if I like it yet (ep. 03). the music is outstanding tough.

A good combination of comedy and drama. Zach Galifianakis is outstandingly amazing performing two completely different characters. Although episodes are very slow, but they managed to make them watchable. Waiting for the second season, especially after the last since in the finale.

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!
