    In all honesty this being 4 episodes was not necessary. We’re given lots of theories from youtubers throughout the 4 episodes. Then it ends in the last 10 minutes with “we forgot to mention how this detail that closes the case.”


    Mostly okay, but too much airtime given to egocentric youtubers and their conspiracies that are only interested on themselves and being the ones finding the truth to be the hero, instead of honoring the memory of the victim. Those people haven't done any good and caused harm. Why giving them this exposure ? Beside that, there are interesting and caring people giving great inputs. I don't know, this could have been a good work about mental health but instead it's wasted trying to be a thriller show.


    An interesting and tragic case. The show definitely goes on too long but is interesting enough. I liked the history of the hotel, the area and other criminals involved with the hotel but these are often thrown in without much context. They should probably have just done a series on the hotel and done an episode about each notable crime / criminals relating to it. I feel very sorry for Pablo Vergara and hope it serves as a warning to the damage internet conspiracies can do. There is one moment where a key piece of information is just withheld as the rest of the story is told to keep it mysterious. Felt like a cheap move. Definitely too much time given to internet conspiracy theorists. I guess they try and tell the story of how easy it is to get drawn in and how damaging it can be but doesn’t feel well executed. Probably an episode or 2 too long. 6/10

    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!
