Bernard Black is everything I strive to be.
This is one of my favorite sitcoms of all time. I currently venturing on my fourth or fifth complete watch through. It manages to be both completely absurd and relatable. It is a remarkably charming show that everyone should have the pleasure of sampling.
I HAD A GOOD TIME WATCHING IT, AND I`M GONNA MISS THEIR STUPID FRIENDSHIP!
I finally got around to watching this for the first time. It was just one of those shows that I didn't get around to watching while it was still airing. I absolutely loved it and feel a little sad that it ended when it did. I definitely feel like they could have done another series or two. I truly adore the friendship between Bernard, Manny and Fran and every single episode was great, funny and _real._ Dylan Moran is a genius and plays one of my favourite sitcom characters, hands down.
I can't describe how amazing this show is. Easily one of my favourite shows ever made. Bernard Black is one of the best characters ever created.
Must have series. Very funny and you just gotta love Bernard Black
I wish I had seen this sooner :) So amazing!!
Rediculous, outrageous, hilarious.
Simply good, old fashioned British humor. What more do you need?
Not only is Black Books my favourite sitcom, but I have immense respect for it. After three seasons, only 18 episodes, they wrapped it up so it didn't have time to get stale or tired. Though it's brief, nearly every episode is great, and they quit while they were ahead.
Don’t know about you, but since the lockdown, I have had more free time than ever. Maybe it’s because we did not actually realize how much time we were wasting. So the other day, whilst I was pouring myself a glass of wine, I remembered how much I love and missed genre “Fantasy”. It was my favorite genre since growing up, maybe because I was too much into Avatar, but yeah I miss it. So today let’s talk about best fantasy TV shows.
In times like this, when we’re all trying to stay safe and stay home as much as possible, it is very important to enjoy ourselves and feel relaxed while doing so. Thankfully, we have Netflix to help us out in our quest, but with so many series to choose from, you might spend hours browsing and still not being able to decide! That’s why I made this list to help you out.
Because I’m watching so many imaginary scenarios, it’s nice to take a look at things that actually happened every once in a while. The drama from documentaries really feels a lot different than those from series you just know didn’t happen. I love being aware of everything that is or has been going on and Netflix is really great at helping us with that.
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!
