Love this show. I used to hate long-running TV dramas but Desperate Housewives is classic in a way I can't explain. Bree is definitely my favourite character by far, with Gabrielle a close second (Eva Longoria

Bree and Susan are kind of crazy, Mike and MJ so sweet, and Mrs. McCluskey...oh...love this

Love love love, I can't pick a favourite out of them because they are all so good and have wonderful moments throughout the series! Love the crazy emotional and suspenseful drama!

It's interesting how the last season almost always has lower rating! Maybe because we don't want to let go of it (the series) LOL! I love the cast. I love the dynamic. The drama. The twists. One of my favorite all-time TV-experiences.

In some way, I am very happy that the show ended. It really got bad in the last episodes. ... well, and the final episode: neighbour-ghosts. honestly? ^^

About Me

I am Sophie and this is my website.

A little about me ๐Ÿ‘‹ 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 (.. bingingโ€ฆ) series on my computer on rainy Sundays or any sunny day for that matter ๐Ÿ™ˆ

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 donโ€™t feel like watching it all over againโ€ฆ

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!
