looking for a good short show to watch? look no further! the cast and the acting is ON POINT! the music, the editing, the cinematography, the story, ITS ALL A+!! everything about this show is amazing! a must watch!

avatar

there's more emotion and thought provoking material present in this miniseries than there is in most full length tv shows. raw and powerful performances, incredible editing, an amazing soundtrack. this is truly something really special.

avatar

Cast, music, story... Just... Perfect.

avatar

i'm just gonna say this (Alexander Skarsgård, Adam Scott, Nicole Kidman, Zoë Kravitz, Shailene Woodley, Reese Witherspoon). i am DEFINITELY watching this.

avatar

2 episodes in not impressed (even kind of boring). I hate the format with the cops at the press conference droning on)Not sure what the hype was about. I will finish hopefully it gets better.

I don't know what it says about me that I can understand SciFi multiverses and Fantasy worlds better than I can relate to the world of rich, suburban, Californian women. So it took me awhile to get into the mindset of this drama. But when I got there I found a superb cast playing multifaceted characters; a mystery from the beginning yet unresolved until the last roll of the film. Ultimately this is human stories of women dealing with their multilayer lives, with friendship, protecting those they love, navigating social tide pools, and finding their way through the fallibility of life. Basically 7 (good) out of 10, but the finale brings the whole series up to a 7.5 (well executed) out of 10.

Thoroughly recommended and such a wonderful cast.

First season was great, the second season...not so much. I remember reading after season one they weren't sure if they were even going to have a second season considering season one was based on the book and they would need to create the second. I can honestly say I was not much of a fan and wish it would have stopped after season one. Don't get me wrong, it is an HBO show with a great cast, which means solid production and acting. It is still "good" but doesn't appeal to my taste and is drastically different from its predecessor. There will be people out there that either connect to the topics and/or love slow burning dramas and love the entire series. Me on the other hand, I would recommend watching the first and skipping the second. Average Season Review: 8/10 Recommendation: At Least Give it a Whirl (For Twisted Drama Fans)

I'm speechless, this first season was so great! The outcome was great, the environment, the superficial conflicts of the high society staff and the big dark side too! I'm here deciding between 9 and 10 stars !! Not to mention the soundtrack, and the cast too. I loved this! HBO leaving me breathless here!

Fuck, what have I just watched?! Such raw performances. Brilliant. [spoiler] I have to say I felt Celeste's pain every single minute thanks to the incredible performance of Nicole Kidman[/spoiler]. Besides, that opening shows you how delightful all the colours and sounds will be for 7 episodes in a row. Damn, the editing was A+! Truly loved it, I'm waiting for more.

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.
