This is a competent series based on a true story and this should raise some flags to all those direct-TV movies we got in the past that were based on a true story. Qualitywise it's often above those movies but quite frankly it all feels like cardboard, with cardboard people. It's strange cause these characters have led compelling lives and faced something very unique... Unfortunately it doesn't feel that way. I think the main problem of this show is that there's little to no "severity"... it's all a bit too realistic to be interesting despite the fact the story and actions of these characters is incredible. The things John does and experienced aren't tame at all but they come over as such. It's a chore to get through at times but you'll stick around to see the conclusion of this story. The final two episodes are much more exciting than the previous ones, spreading these over the whole season would have been a better choice.

I was surprised that this movie felt so much like a classic Lifetime movie. I really did not enjoy it. However, if you enjoy watching beautiful people act, you will like this one. Everyone is lovely; grandma, mom, daughters, even John!

Season 1 was very good from beginning to end. 9/10 Season 2 - Betty was terrible. Episode 1 bit of a mess, but important. Ep 2 and 3 good, but dragged out. Ep 4 and 5 could've been shortened to 10 mins total without losing any part of the story. Ep 5 good. Ep 6 delete. Ep 7 and 8 could have been edited down to about 20 minute tops. The entire second season could have been done in 3 episodes and it would have been good. As it is it's so tedious and full of irrelevant and pointless content I really struggled to get through it. My best advice: skip season 2 entirely - it's just a complete waste of time. 1/10

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!
