This is a strange show. 4 episodes in...I have no idea what is going on. But I can’t stop watching. So I guess it must be good since I can’t turn away. Let’s see how the rest goes.

Best show I've seen in a long time.

I had no idea what I was getting into when I started watching, but WOW what a ride so far!! I adore Peter and Simone! I’m loving everything about this show. It’s unlike anything else I’ve seen, and its amazing!! I can’t wait to see where this adventure takes us next!

Well, in overall is a waste of time. Some episodes have a good points, good questions but is just like Seinfeld quote: "this is a show about nothing".

SO BORING! my god, i wish i could go back in time and spend 50 minutes on the toilet with diarrhea instead of watching the first episode of this boring series. "Oh, look at me, I'm contemplative and full of metalanguage about existential motives"

Finished. This won't be to everyone's taste, but I thought it quite thought-provoking. In the beginning it starts out as a an existential journey disguised as a game also intended to bring people together, but ends out as an exploration of identity, individual, group and human. What drew me to it was Sally Field, its small scale, and the character of Simone, of course. A story which is a puzzle wrapped up into an enigma, and one of the few visual experiences which breaks the fourth wall en masse, and does so self-referentially (the story in a story, in a story) as a plot device. A WTF is going on treat. 9/10

Only one word :) _Weird_ But I kinda liked it

One of the strangest series I have seen, and that the documentary on which it is based, "The Institute" (Spencer McCall, 2013) was already weird. Finding the extraordinary in our ordinary lives is the main theme of a proposal that develops turning all the time on itself. And that finally, especially in the last episodes, is revealed as a chaos more or less consistent with the rest of the story. It is these moments of creative debauchery (that final scene) that cause the greatest amazement.

From what I've seen in the comments, I think that most people see Jason Segel and expect a certain thing (comedy) and thus, they got disappointed by what they watched. This is based on a true story... and yes, if you've seen the 2013 documentary about the Jejune Institute you know that what happened back then is just as weird and strange as this show. To this day a lot of people cant explain whether it was insanity, an alternate reality game, a cult or simply data collection... I think the series does a great job in being just as confusing as the real life story. Jason Segel is great in this!

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!
