Good series worth watching. After watching episode 1 and VW's dieselgate I'd never purchase one of their vehicles - and M-B and BMW aren't exactly innocent either. Everyone should watch that show just to get an idea of how much damage VW did and how light they really got away with in regards to fines. What they did to Scott Tucker (ep 2 ) was beyond ridiculous. He didn't break the law - everything he did was legal!! Why are Payday Loan companies allowed to operate at all after this? Typical heavy-handed FBI out grabbing money from people and intimidating them with no recourse. Episode 4 on the Mexican banks makes me ask Why would anyone go to Mexico on holiday? Episode 5 about the Maple Syrup was a snooze fest (I slept through it). I expected a usual liberal bashing of Trump in episode 6, but it was very fair and honest.

Fines for such companies should simply be increased by at least 3 zeros at the end. Then you would see how much they would mind if they had to pay a few billion dollars instead of "a few" millions of dollars. A bunch of greedy bastards who will do anything for money. And governments around the world are quietly watching, because they're the same bastards as they do. A very good documentary series that will piss you off.

I guess the saying is true. It's easy being a bad person but it takes a real afford to be a good one.

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!
