Was in the same year as Rebecca Breeds, and as a wannabe reviewer - I definitely need to give this a view. Hope it's a success for her.


I really hope they make something amazing with one of my favourite female characters. Cast looks fine - Rebecca Breeds fills the bill optically and with Kal Penn and Michael Cudlitz there are at least two decently known actors in it.


Looks like a good start to potentially successful Silent of the Lambs themed TV show. I enjoyed the Hannibal (TV series) series. But I hope this won't try to copy this. Plus the Hannibal series was a bit trippy at times. So I hope they stick with a solid deduction show and not lean too much on deep psychological issues of those Clarice is investigating. Crossing fingers!

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!
